What is Business

A business (company, enterprise or firm) is a legally recognized organization designed to provide goods or services, or both, to consumers, businesses and governmental entities.[1] Businesses are predominant in capitalist economies. Most businesses are privately owned. A business is typically formed to earn profit that will increase the wealth of its owners and grow the business itself. The owners and operators of a business have as one of their main objectives the receipt or generation of a financial return in exchange for work and acceptance of risk. Notable exceptions include cooperative enterprises and state-owned enterprises. Businesses can also be formed not-for-profit or be state-owned.
The etymology of "business" relates to the state of being busy either as an individual or society as a whole, doing commercially viable and profitable work. The term "business" has at least three usages, depending on the scope — the singular usage (above) to mean a particular company or corporation, the generalized usage to refer to a particular market sector, such as "the music business" and compound forms such as agribusiness, or the broadest meaning to include all activity by the community of suppliers of goods and services. However, the exact definition of business, like much else in the philosophy of business, is a matter of debate and complexity of meanings.

Forex 2

Apa itu Forex ?. Pertukaran Mata Uang Asing (Forex) merupakan pasar terbesar di dunia, dalam jumlah dana yang ditransaksikan, dan termasuk yang ditransaksikan antar bank-bank besar, bank-bank sentral, spekulan mata uang, perusahaan multinasional, pemerintah, dan pasar finansial beserta institusi lainnya.
Trader forex secara serempak membeli satu mata uang dan menjual yang lainnya dan mata uang tersebut diberi harga dan ditradingkan secara berpasangan.
Tidak ada pusat pertukaran secara fisik, dimana transaksi Forex terjadi semenjak trading bebas dilakukan antara counterparties, secara perorangan, dengan telpon atau online.
Bursa valuta asing (foreign exchange market, forex) atau disingkat bursa valas merupakan suatu jenis perdagangan atau transaksi yang memperdagangkan mata uang suatu negara terhadap mata uang negara lainnya (pasangan mata uang/pair) yang melibatkan pasar-pasar uang utama di dunia selama 24 jam secara berkesinambungan.
Pergerakan pasar valuta asing berputar mulai dari pasar Selandia Baru dan Australia yang berlangsung pukul 05.00–14.00 WIB, terus ke pasar Asia yaitu Jepang, Singapura, dan Hongkong yang berlangsung pukul 07.00–16.00 WIB, ke pasar Eropa yaitu Jerman dan Inggris yang berlangsung pukul 13.00–22.00 WIB, sampai ke pasar Amerika Serikat yang berlangsung pukul 20.30–10.30 WIB. Dalam perkembangan sejarahnya, bank sentral milik negara-negara dengan cadangan mata uang asing yang terbesar sekalipun dapat dikalahkan oleh kekuatan pasar valuta asing yang bebas.
Untuk Trading Forex anda bisa melakukannya secara manual (offline) maupun secara online.


Foreign Exchange (forex) atau dikenal sebagai valuta asing (valas) merupakan salah satu pilihan investasi yang berkembang di Indonesia saat ini. Forex Trading adalah transaksi perdagangan nilai tukar mata uang asing di pasar uang internasional. Pasar forex merupakan pasar uang terbesar di dunia.
Yang melakukan transaksi di pasar forex adalah: pemerintah-pemerintah di dunia, bank-bank utama dunia, perusahaan bertaraf internasional, hedge fund, spekulan valas maupun individu. Sehingga dengan banyaknya pemain di pasar forex ini menyebabkan perputaran uang menjadi sangat cepat. Transaksi yang terjadi lebih dari 1,9 triliun US dollar setiap hari sehingga membuat uang dapat berpindah tangan dari satu tempat ke tempat lain hanya dalam beberapa detik.
Seperti halnya bursa saham para pemain forex dapat melakukan trading dengan menggunakan jasa perusahaan pialang (commision house) atau melakukannya sendiri secara online melalui internet.
Perdagangan forex memiliki beberapa kelebihan dibandingkan dengan perdagangan produk-produk keuangan lain seperti perdagangan saham, yaitu:
24 Hours Trading
Dapat dilakukan 24 jam sehari, 5 hari seminggu, kapan dan dimanapun kita berada.
Sangat likuid dengan banyaknya broker/dealer yang bermain dalam pasar forex.
Rendahnya biaya transaksi

Potensi keuntungan 2 arah (naik maupun turun)
Memiliki potensi keuntungan baik pada mata uang yang menguat maupun pada mata uang yang melemah.
Margin Trading
Perdagangan dengan margin membuat daya beli investor melebihi jumlah modal yang dimiliki.

Business Skills

For years, Ireland has enjoyed exceptional growth in the property and construction industries, so much so that it counted for 30% of the Irish economy. However, we all realise that this phase in Ireland's history has passed. So what's next? It will become increasingly clear, that we are entering a totally new chapter. Things are never going to be the same again, and we must adapt to succeed. What we will see happening, is a large amount of home businesses springing up all over the country. Low overheads, low expenses, low wage bills and the leverage of the internet present the perfect ingredients to create truly successful small businesses. It will be a question of must rather than want, as it is increasingly unlikely that any one industry will any time soon provide what appeared to be such secure and well paid employment. From now on the motto is going to be - "you gotta row your own boat." Self determination, independence, and the willingness to learn new skills are prerequisites for succeeding. The four primary aspects of any business are production, research, finance and sales. However, by far the most important skill to master is sales. Sales are the life blood of any business, no sales equals no business. We strongly recommend becoming a marketing and sales master, using all of the means and media at your disposal. This may include newspaper and magazine ads, billboards, vehicle livery, TV and radio ads, and street signs if using traditional marketing methods. Alternatively, using online marketing methods will include pay per click campaigns, possibly on Google or yahoo, banner ads on websites other than your own, writing articles on your subject and distributing them online to establish your expert status, writing on blogs and forums relevant to your subject to build a following, submitting video clips and tips to online media including and Google video, and working on the optimisation of your site in order to bring it as high up the Google rankings as possible. All of the above serve to drive more traffic to your site, typically more traffic i.e., people visiting your website means more sales. When and wherever possible it is best to combine both online and offline marketing to create a truly well recognised business brand, that most importantly makes sales, and gets paid. Knowing who exactly your customer is, and how to get to them is essential. For example, Matt Furey author of Combat Conditioning has an exceptional online business selling a variety of strength conditioning and success courses. Matt effectively writes articles for a number of wrestling and martial arts publications that in turn drive traffic to his website, combining traditional offline and online marketing seamlessly and profitably. To conclude, Ireland is particularly well poised to thrive on the online world business stage, in that we speak the world's most prevalent language, have excellent communication skills, and are imbued with the determination to get the job done.
