Cushion cover manufacturer wanted | 04/21/2015
Can anyone advise me on how to find a manufacturer of blank cushion covers for a business I am starting. I would be ordering in bulk and would prefer to buy in the UK. But if necessary would consider overseas too. Does anyone know of a company that does this?

Help on this new business idea | 04/21/2015
The new business idea is to hire out things like a PlayStation 4 with all the games for a party or occasional use instead of someone having to go out and buy it.
The thing i need help with is the documentations. What do I need to do to make sure someone doesnt run off/damage my ps4, obviously I can take a deposit but that defeats the purpose, is there any sort of insurance that can cover me? Or any way I can chase up someone who goes and brakes it while its being hired?
Not 100% sure what marketing is, or how to do it? | 04/21/2015
As some of you will know, I'm a marketing and business development consultant who specialises in speaking to business owners just before they embark on any kind of marketing activity, to make sure they base all of their decisions and activities on a sound strategy. As such, I speak to many hundreds of small business owners every year. If I could pinpoint one topic of conversation that gets clients thinking about marketing in the right way, more than any other topic, it's this.

best way to stop providing a service to a customer. | 04/21/2015
I was wondering if anyone had a letter template that would be worded best to tell a customer that we are no longer willing to provide them any more services as we feel our relationship has broken down and can no longer be repaired.
No prior arrangement - who owns the software? | 04/21/2015
We've had a bespoke computer based management database and online shop etc., produced for us to exactly match our requirements.
All of the functionality, various sections, how it works etc., was our idea but the building and coding was all done by a local developer.
We now have outside interest from other parties who are keen to use our model.
Do we as purchasers of the services of the developer own the rights to the workings of the whole, the actual 'software' itself?
How much money is enough? | 04/21/2015
Just decided to take a day off from my business today and just out on a walk with my dog for a little self reflection.
I wanted to ask self employed people out there a personal question which is
'How much money (profit) do you aim to earn per week or per month? And how much amouht of money is enough for you to feel content?
The reason I ask is probably due to a weakness in my character and how I evaluate progress. however week in week out I work as hard as I can to earn as...

What is the secret of 4 meat eating teeth, we have | 04/21/2015
Why we have only four meat eating teeth?
We have 32 teeth, out of which only four are meat eating teeth made to tear meat, the rest are made to cut and grind plants. So, by nature, we are not meat eaters but plant eaters, because we can not use the four meat eating teeth, although we eat meat and enjoy it.
Another important point, which proves we are plant eaters, not meat eaters, is the temperature of animals, the meat of which we eat, is higher than our temperature. This means, by nature,...

Partnership question? | 04/21/2015
Hi there, this is my first post on the site!
I had an idea today and I have no idea whether it has any merit or not, or is even legal but it threw up some questions.
I am looking at Chinese manufacturers of a particular product. I was doing the usual "here is the cost to me, plus duty, plus VAT, plus shipping" etc etc. I wondered whether going into partnership with a manufacturer whereby you were their UK representatives would work, and instead of a transaction with the goods passing into...
