Long-term is incompatible with Startups

Ok, a polemic title, let me rephrase, Long-term is incompatible with most startup. You don’t do long-term strategies in a startup (unless 1 month can be seen as long-term). Startups are based on having one idea, one product, one vision and you try to make it work. The philosophy is different in a startup If it fails, you change the … Read More

A father should kneel

A father should kneel Important conversations happen between peers. As a father of a 4-year-old son, this means that when I listen to my child, I kneel. The message I want to send is: I’m listening only to you, I care about you, and what you want to tell me. Keeling is the right thing to do for a father; it’s also the … Read More

This made me think about a counterintuitive reality: there are businesses that are profitable while advertising that they will never be able to solve their customers’ problems. Interesting In this case, we talk about pest control, not pest elimination. The name made it clear, they -try to- control, not … Read More

Online depreciation – a challenge for XXI century accountants

What is depreciation? What is online depreciation? Why are they different? Let’s say that you buy a car for £20’000.  So after buying it, the value is £20’000. Easy. Also, if after one year you try to sell it, the price would be lower than £20’000. It’s a used car. Every year the value of the car goes down. This change … Read More
