Identified a niche
When we [foreign friends of our group] before the Bucharest, Romania 4-5 years back for real estate purposes, we enthusiastically before a landing and moving into a country when that was essentially foreign to us hope used to be. We passed through all stages of pre-made patriotic, the most critical stage where we as business owners and entrepreneurs to look around and think "Wow ... this will be a great idea to Bucharest?" Although it helps to have fun and realistic ideas you eggs, the network "to" falling in as I will call you on it is not willing to be. We have luxury spa opening fast food, name brand clothing labels, real estate, offices and more chain saw. We looked at both traditional and high-western business concepts. At the end of the day, we found that the focus for business in the amount of overhead than take the time to really absorb and be accepted in the local market, and the amount of red tape to get there , one might be better for other income streams "out of the box" type to be followed. We talk exclusively about how to stop these type plans will beat in an upcoming post. always mind that whatever We in the U.S. or the UK can keep, Romanians can usually cheaper. not necessarily in all cases better, but cheaper ... and it is a "meeting" effect. according to their number run.
Now the "worldwide economic crisis' laziness and affordability go hand in hand somehow. I twice in the last few days was told by two different Romanian following phrase: "Romanians do not like to give money to get only if they do not receive they carry ..." I refer here long and difficult debate about this as I fear that many people take offense to that and say it is demeaning and insulting to the Romanians was. I disagree and I think it has some important knowledge or any business as a service is considered here. You see, the word about the thing that is so blatantly true, and indeed any society or culture around the world to be honest. Everyone's economic well instead of paying money to get by when it comes right down to not being? (A Charity comment here) now clearly transactions are open for business, and business is in Bucharest ... But the primary issue is the phrase that Romanians are really in the "tuned" the fact that you MUST provide value if you expect to make any money. Period.
So simple to identify an appropriate place when living in Bucharest that way? Well, the answer is simple as well as basic universal is. Do you enjoy! If you have a passion for something and are knowledgeable about the subject, you automatically to provide value to our customers "will be applied. Once you start with passion, you find your way and you will find your answer do. a "secret" business that is different because it will magically grow in Bucharest. you think a landscaping company is a sure bet here, or decide to have a 1950s American diner, but may be slow ... anyone else might have thought about it, and proceed with some examples, only to find that reality set in, and the numbers were just numbers. But then again .. . you never know. ... and quickly move on to less emotional. faux emotional lose their asses.
What are your hobbies? What are your skill sets? What do you think you enjoy doing that better than the next person you know? If your passion is in every way than real estate, go down that road. If your passion is writing, to talk to me ... You are in business already. Marketing? Is the same. Art and photography? Open a themed art gallery. Cars? A prestigious brand to open a repair or performance shop! Did you know that there is less color in Bucharest dent removal is a growing niche? Computer? "Overseas Computer Service & Repair ... We come to you!" As with any of the business, you run the numbers to meet its business plan, as well as all trial and error that the general business development will be a little extra money would be through the building! The bottom line when choosing your niche start with something you believe in and love. If you do not have a rough ride.
Attorney and permits and licenses ... Oh my. The business is big WTF here. Red tape. Yes you do need to be doing business here to register, especially if you have a brick and mortar business. You must be licensed you must be registered with appropriate government agencies (each a hand in your pocket is here, actually) and you actually perform the duties in addition to the product and sell your company to actually provide intends to sell to be registered. The "multi-tiered" process of documentation for you just happy to come here is to find in Romania. Every legal document, a 50-hidden documents "secret key." It's like role playing video games sometimes. Time you collect the proper amount of fire notarized golden goblet? Uhhoh .. The game is over .. Please try again. All kidding aside on this one, make sure you consult an attorney in the beginning and start properly. Apparent that although legal "issues" a lot of you over the other in Romania as "growing" nations as well as ways of making'll just bribe. Here's another hot tip you'll thank me later ... If you do not speak fluent Romanian, a professional translator standing by your side all over the fare. We found that things (especially in legalese) actually get "lost in translation" quite often. Ignoring important information in your home country can be harmful. Romania may have some trouble guarding ... Bribes and expensive (for the record I did not). We all know the old saying is essentially true as long as in Romania is here, sometimes seeing the big picture you will see that it is better to do with just a "deal" "It's easier than sorry beg to ask for permission "issued today than to pass it off until tomorrow. In Bucharest and legal paperwork will be over with a fine tooth comb, and you must ensure that your documents from start to finish your plan of action to follow. If not, your time, effort and money "Reset" can look at.'s Not good. Legal, Internet and web-based businesses can be a quick secret headquarters overseas yet still effectively business here, or anywhere. That's the next issue that arises in the mind, and the overwhelming desire of the Romanians would have received a stamped receipt to keep ...
Fiscal Bonn. For those times I have been told, have been accused of many things I have not prepared, or disable the "prestigious" receipt was provided. This means that for the right to keep adequate records, as well as for tax purposes would create a paper trail makes it, but sometimes I would much rather just some cold hard cash to exchange goods and services will be done with it right done? Be. If you can. You see, here in Bucharest, in a beautiful and simple adding machine more than meets the eye. The cash register gold multi-hundred euro piece. Is for you, it costs you money, it needs to provide receipts and account for your taxes you will pay. That brings us to the next point .. Taxes. Romanian is still not a tax haven. The Cypress, is not, nor is Panama. It is Romania. You for everything you account for taxes (unless you do not have) to be paid. Tax rates much, but to sell you something off of 15% and 20% is expected to be somewhere between. I not going to deepen in the legal or administration would be wise to this article because I am not an accountant or a lawyer, then as with a column, I can give the best advice on that you just because it's Romania, with everything can not get away, so before proceeding appropriate person (s) to consult. Foreign income taxes and earned income taxes portfolio? Ask your accountant. When to stop you information that does not sit right with you, do not listen. Tax law is the legal loopholes. Use them.
If your company's business plan calls for employees, great. If not hiring you anyway if you can squeeze the budget can be considered. Romania is still relatively cheap labor to go. Employees generally in the UK and U.S. business overhead (or most anywhere for that matter) are associated with a large percentage of this is simply not the case in Romania. Day to day activities are more numbers with a focus on employees is under consideration, as well as "place yourself" approach. Some, as well as many, for example, a great return on this investment to pay an employee out promotional flyers for example may be near. At $ 80-10 per hour to be very cost effective in the U.S. may not, but here you can probably get away with a profit. Employees generally stop at 800-1000 lei per month full time with an average salary of his work career start. Full time is a bit vague, and often 40 hour work week is more than we are accustomed too.
Working, negotiating, and managing employees a little bit different than we're used to, but management still unclear what the basic "rules" to stick to. If you paid a salary, almost nine out of ten times the work to "just enough to keep their jobs" will receive the equivalent output. There are a lot of confidence here, when the employee / employer comes to relationships. It goes both ways as well. Employees do not trust their employers because they generally when the actual duties and responsibilities than the agreed job description comes to get taken advantage of. There are very few examples where the risk of termination or pay cuts as a dangling carrot in order to use more their (s) staff agreed to get out of than the original. The cause of employee advocate groups are as strong as they are increasing is one. As employers are also very well with their employees take the offensive when they [employees] often make money for every occasion, something they do not "take advantage". If you give too much slack, it of course, will be me.This believe is basic management 101, but multiplied ten-fold here. His job duties is not the same. Honor their agreements, and its employees fully accountable for their actions and hold responsibilities. The best way to hire and remove the biggest obstacles? Public or public universities, students take looking for gigs. Why not have public and private? Private school students are not attending school, or passed through the school is a large amount of bribing someone.
Private students [generally] a low work ethic, where as in government or public schools, a student is a student if some milestones (including attendance) are not complete struggle. Commission to assist with salaries and transportation if needed. If you only pay a large percentage of the Commission or the employee's earnings are much better off you will be based on commission. You are better off as employees will be well. You will achieve higher profitability and productivity, and you will be prompted to re-staff the ability to own more than one make lifestyle as well as up and more money to get their work responsibilities go beyond! If they do not like to go to the next employee. There are people that will have the opportunity to claw much. The bottom line is employees: If you can justify hiring, do so, but do be aware of complications. Well above average, giving them the opportunity to treat your employees to succeed and prosper. Yourself doing what you say, while only their employees bear the same treatment in return Protect.
Marketing and Advertising
U.S. and UK with a number of advertising is passive and active citizens of the shower. Several decades now. The marketing and advertising have been properly be tuned and tweaked over the years to "immunity" is bound to make against such tactics against the people feel. Marketing and advertising nowadays is a completely new animal. Days are gradually disappeared when a person next "outspending" By simply can achieve greatness in business. Traditional ways for companies and high cost of their goods with the media trying to market services more and more of anonymity "pit" to be expected in the end. An expat, as when starting a business, always think small and effective. Guerrilla marketing techniques to try. If you are an international brand name business that will bring brand awareness, decided to open own weight, you probably have a golden goose. On the other hand, as an expat, you pursue your passion as we have discussed before are likely to be. This being the case, you'll be looking where your money is going, and advertising and marketing must focus on low cost methods. To Bucharest, as they are relatively guerrilla techniques "your face" to many new, you with something as simple as handing out flyers, or even your "store" if you are making, as can stick more to stand out from competitors'. The bottom line is we have learned in Romania on marketing successes elsewhere around the globe based on your campaign never plan. To where your customers are and what they want to go to learn. Ask. Relationship marketing is the key here. Keep in mind that consumer protection laws here are some hard. Well what your product or service are to be apprised. At some point in time who you are and what you will be challenged. Be prepared for that.
