A few thoughts on building out an idea into a business / project. 🧵

1.) Write down everything, do not just put it in your phone. That may be convenient and easy, but something happens when you put pen to paper.
When writing ideas out by hand you will begin to notice more ideas flooding in and you begin to think more deeply about your project.
2.) Since you are writing ideas out by hand, make sure you carry a notebook with you wherever you go. This can be any size, but don't forget it. You never know when new details about your idea will come.

Women-led MSME registrations jumped 75% in FY22

Udyam portal, the official gateway for MSMEs (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises) to register in India, saw a 75% increase in registrations for women-led MSMEs in the financial year 2021-22.

In contrast to 4.9 lakh registrations in FY21, there were over 8.59 Lakh registrations by women-led MSMEs in FY 2022. Although a sharp rise, the total share held by women entrepreneurs is still only around 17% of the total count.

Regardless, the monumental rise of new women-led MSMEs shows how the MSME space is slowly but surely becoming more inclusive. With more and more schemes being launched by the government for the benefit of small businesses, women-led enterprises have not been overlooked.

Family Owned Small Businesses Are Key to a Sustainable Economy

Once there was a time when the economy was sustainable. It remained until the big companies came and wipe out the family run small businesses.

thread >> #economy #business #smallbusiness #FamilyBusiness
The masses chased the trend, left their own business and rushed to work for other's businesses. And gradually the whole economy became centralized and got dependent on a few elite entities.
The nature of a standard economy should be decentralized. When the economy gets centralized and a few entity starts to hold the majority control, it becomes more easily collapsible.

If you do not have a thermter, hold up the chicks feet to your cheeks to measure the temp. If you do this right, effects will be - high weight gain, lower FCR (Feed conversation ratio), lower cull rate, lower mortality and reduced bird growing costs.

It seems @Instagram has blocked my thread response, so here’s a stand-alone thread on why #Instagram REFUSES to remove #fake or #finsta #accounts.

My name is also on Instagram where I post about #antiques. Last weekend I worked the #antiquemall and posted these 3 stories.
I screen shot these the next morning, so that 1st story came from #Insights.

1st - 81 views - all legit

2nd - 71 views minus 2 #finsta spammers = 69 views

3rd - 75 views minus 13 #finsta spammers = 62 views
While news media like @allinwithchris @Slate @nytimes @FoxNews @morroweric try to spin the narrative of @SenBlumenthal’s exchange w/ @Meta / #Facebook’s #AntigoneDavis there’s real world application to #finsta accounts in choking out views to decrease popularity. @FacebookWatch

The finale opened w emotion: 1) #yyc-based members of the #TokyoOlympics/#TokyoParalympics #teamcanada were honored. 2) tributes to the retiring members of #yyccc, @DruhFarrell @EWoolleyWard8 @ChahalGeorge @Ward4Ward1 @CouncillorKeats & @nenshi, induced tears & good vibes. 2/24
After almost exactly 4yrs of work initiated by my learning about #BenefitDrivenProcurement @FCSSAAoffice’s AGM right after the 2017 #yycvote, getting an NoM passed by #yyccc, & development shepherded by @momentumcalgary’s @HareCourtney, we’ve approved a great policy!!! 3/24

Dear @GavinNewsom I sit here realizing that you are spending every day, fighting to keep your job, and the career you’ve built. You are trying to make the case that you should keep your job, and that’s a pretty terrible feeling. 1/
The irony is not lost on me that in early 2020, I was one of thousands of California freelancers, calling your office and the offices of my assembly person and senator, asking for help to keep my own livelihood, one I’d worked to build over a period of years, harmed by #AB5 2/
I called daily, wrote letters, took meetings with lawmakers explaining my #smallbusiness And while I got some sympathetic listening, there was no action taken to help professionals like myself from being cast aside. Frustrating as heck. 3/

#NFIB data says we are only in a #recovery, not an #economic expansion.
While the NFIB data doesn't get much #media attention, it should as it tells you much about what is really happening in the #economy.

Reason I pay attention to #NFIB
Sept 2019 - Data rings alarm bells on #recession.
April 2020 - Data says recession arrived.
May 2020 - Data says #economic recovery not as strong as media suggests.

My #1 Email list growth strategy?

I've used free #spreadsheets to grow my email subscriber list. Given my level of traffic, it's worked relatively well.

1/4
The spreadsheets are related to the same #smallbusiness #finance topics that I write about. It was a challenge to find a free way to collect visitor emails and to deliver the spreadsheet instantaneously and automatically.

2/4
After several weeks of trial and error, I was able to solve this issue by embedding #Google Forms into my posts. Then, by adding a little bit of code I found elsewhere, the appropriate Google Sheet opens in a separate browser tab after form submission.

Let me introduce to you this guy in the right most of image - Mukesh. We release an order on him today for some major automation of our production line.
His father was an ice cream seller. And everyday would lose money as ice creams would melt. He used to go to some govt school but never enjoyed being there. He quit school and joined a small workshop as a peon serving tea to visitors
Almost 11/2 years back we were searching for someone to make hydraulic fixtures for precision production to automate a production line. I googled and found his page on FB. Asked my team to call him. When I first met him was shocked as he looked more like a shop floor helper.
