Factors that entrepreneurs should consider before investing in foreign nations.

This article can add value to government officials for the purpose of attracting foreign investments, however, I will be focusing on entrepreneurs. The Porter's Diamond model will be used to let you know what factors to consider when you want to open a branch of your business in another country. According to this model, there are four factors which are:

- The Factor Conditions
- Firm Strategy, Structure and Rilvary
- Related and Supporting Industries
- The Demand Conditions

The Factor Conditions
This relates to the nature of the country, as such you must consider the natural resources of the country, the availability of cheaper labour, the availability of lowly skilled staff as well as a well educated work force. That way you can be sure that a percentage of the population possess the skills required to execute the tasks needed for the achievement of your business goals. The weather condition, the security in the country , the infrastructures of the country (such as good roads, constant power supply) are amongst all the factors you must consider.

Firm Strategy, Structure and Rilvary.
The way in which businesses are developed and managed in a country should influence your decision as a foreigners to invest in the country. The structure and style of management should influence your decision as well. The level of competition must also influence your decision.

Related and Supporting Industries
Within that country, there has to be a set of strong related and supporting industries for the industry your business falls into. That way, you will be sure your industry can get the adequate support needed. A related industry uses the same skills as yours to execute business tasks. The existence  of supporting industries makes companies competitive.

Demand Condition
The decision to open a branch of your company in another country should also be influenced by the market size for the goods and services you produce. That is there is a huge market for your products in that country.

You are worth more than wealth

Image courtesy of Stuart Miles at FreeDigitalPhotos.net


While money is a necessary tool that can help you achieve your goals and help you survive as a human. It should not define who you are, as such your self worth should not be embedded in money. I aim at promoting financial growth so that you will be able to sustain yourself effectively as well as enjoy yourself. However, the way a rich man is treated is the same way a poor man should be treated. Some people say respect is earned based on what you are able to deliver, I say treat everyone with respect just because they are human. We are all equal.

Your self worth should be built on the love of God. The money is a blessing which you have worked hard for but it can also be taken away from you. What will you do then if that happens since all you are about is the money in your pocket. I have not said do not aim for financial growth please do but do not let it define you.

How to deal with debtors

Image courtesy of Stuart Miles at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

In a previous article I wrote about how to deal with creditors/debt collectors. Today, I am going to write about dealing with debtors. First of all, make sure you do not deal with interest, it is bad for you. Some debtors are difficult, they will not make any attempt to talk to their creditors, some will do whatever they can to avoid creditors. When you have a debtor, for example when a payment is due and the debtor has not made payments. 

* Call him/her politely to remind him/her about the payment cause it might have skipped their mind.

*After few days if the payment is not made call the person during condusive hours, that is after 8am and before 9pm. Ask for your money clearly, politely and firmly. Let your debtor know you have fulfilled your own side of the deal so it is now their turn.

*Do not abuse or threaten your debtor, just make sure you are firm. 

* If no payment is made still, ask your debtor  why they have not paid and be sympathetic with their reasons. Showing that you understand their reason will motivate them to pay up if you offer them a less stringent way of paying. For example, you can let them pay the money instalmentally or make payments on a much later date after showing you a proof that they will be able to pay later. Most people will pay back when less stricter options are provided.

* If no payment is made still, then a debt collection agency could be used, however if the cost of using a debt collection agency exceeds the debt then do not use the agency.
