Top 10 Reasons You Need a Business Plan

Nice and highly recommend to read.The essentials of a Business Plan

Alexis Chateau PR

Starting a business is a great experience. There’s coming up with the business idea, executing the plan, and the euphoria from watching your project come to life. But there’s also a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes related to funding, market research, personnel planning, and a whole host of other concerns.

Potential investors, partners and even clients may want to see documented evidence of your decision regarding these issues, before putting money into your business; and a business plan provides that documented evidence.

But what if you’re funding your own business? Or already have all the partners you’re taking on? What if you don’t even need any additional clients at the moment? Would a business plan still be worth the time and effort to hash out? The answer is a resounding yes – here’s why.

1. Challenges the Plausibility of your Business Idea

Pulp Fiction and Today’s Digital Generation (updated)

Yup a PULP Experience Through the  years I  never was  aware I was formally  introduced to the word PULP or Pulp Culture. Way back in the sixties I vaguely  recalled spending my younger years at an old storage room of my grandparent's at R.O. Santos in Mandaluyong. There before me were old stack up dusty…Read more Pulp Fiction and Today’s Digital Generation (updated)

Needs V.S Wants?

Interesting blog. Originally, I wanted to write about desires and wants. Thanks and have a good week ahead of you.

Jay Colby

Many times we confuse the difference between what we require and what we desire in relationships. We make a list of all the important traits we want in a partner, with very little concept of what we really need in our relationships. Our lists often include items about physical appearance, the level of income or career, and may end with a general statement like “I just want someone that makes me happy.” It is up to you to understand what you need in a relationship versus what you want, and it is your responsibility to effectively communicate those things. First let’s take a look at what constitutes a need. According to a need is “a requirement, necessary duty, or obligation.” Simply put a need is something that is essential and very important to person some people may refer to this as a “deal breaker”. For many people they have…

The Joy of Reading Luning Bonifacio Ira

One of the works of my Mom. Thank’s…


Self has discovered a new kindred spirit and Filipino writer!

Of course, this writer is very well known in the Philippines, but self only discovers her now.  She is Luning Bonifacio Ira.

Self is reading her story, “Tell Me Who Cleft the Devil’s Foot,” in The Best Philippine Short Stories of the Twentieth Century, edited by Isagani R. Cruz.

Self promised to finish this book, finally, this week, but every time she begins a new paragraph in the aforementioned story, she has to stop, it is so beautiful, and fills her with so much nostalgia.  (The phone rings, a rare occurrence.  Self lets it ring.  She will check momentarily to see who it was that just called)  Take, for example, this paragraph:

Rounding Luneta’s manicured acres, she turned right at Del Pilar, left at Padre Faura, and right at a side street whose new name she could not recall. …

Pros and cons of working from home

Nice read and reference.

Marta lives in China

Many people have been on holidays and traveling this month. Many blogs have not been updated so frequently these lazy summer days because their authors are busy doing holiday stuff and having fun. And me… I am writing a post about working because that’s what I’ve been doing all summer!!

I started working from home over 8 months ago and can now talk about the advantages and disadvantages of the “home office”. Let’s see them! Remember, though, that I am not a freelancer, I work full time for a company, so my experience might be different from that of freelancers.

From Nico's point of view. My humble home office. This pic is from a few months ago, now it’s messier!


  • Freedom! When I am not busy I can do other things, like updating my blog or going to the grocery store downstairs.
  • I don’t have to waste time commuting. This is a big yay.
  • I don’t even have to…
