Thanks a lot of great topic



Hello dear bother,

I wish that you have good time and be safe and sound with your kind family and friends. Thank you so much from your nice and interesting issue that you have shared with us. That being said, I’m willing to take my time in fully vetting an idea, discovering my target market and testing that idea with them, before making the solo decision that ‘this must be great!’Having the time to continue thinking things through and seeking the advice of others will greatly benefit your new side business. Even more importantly, unless you’re working on a high-growth startup and can secure investor funding, you’re realistically going to need some form of sustainable income before your new business is able to be that sole source of sustenance for you. Starting a side business while working a full-time job will undoubtedly be difficult, but it’s doable. There are as many paths to free enterprise as there are entrepreneurs in this world. Take these steps into account and you’ll be well on your way to being your own boss. Imagine that awesome feeling.  


Abdul Wasi Amin from Technical AYC

Mr. Abdul Wasi when you have full-time job with side business then how can you communicate with problems? And what do you think about job with profit business and non-profit business?

Hello dear,
This is very good subject
keep your day job and your moonlighting or side gig completely separate, and be ready to sacrifice virtually all time with family, friends, hobbies, etc. in order to devote the necessary efforts and resources to launch your new business.

There are many kinds of work that require only a phone and computer, but if our day job has you sitting in a cubicle all day, we might prefer a side business that gets you out into the world. Weekend and evening side business possibilities might include catering services, musical or stand-up comedy gigs, handyman repair, painting, or yardwork, cleaning services, personal shopper services, farm-to-market gardening, fitness coaching, direct selling, events management, and virtually any parttime business associated with entertainment or recreation.

First,we should make sure your side business is not poaching from or competing with our current day job employer. This will be a lot easier to maintain if our side business is in a completely different line of work or utilizes a different set of work activities than the one your employer depends on you to perform, but if we are truly in a potentially overlapping space,we might think of a way to differentiate to create an absolutely clear non-compete situation. Whatever we do, never, ever use our current day job employer’s resources or personnel to support our side business. Consider using a time-tracker app, not just for billing ourr side gig clients but also so that we can prove we have been completely “off the clock” when doing side business work, in case we are ever challenged on this topic by our day job employer.

great information Tamim!

what is the meaning of independently business between non-profit and probfit busniess? And which responsibalities have the rolling of a country developments? Full time job with non-profit ORG or Business.

Many appreciate brother Farid Ahmad Mohammadzia!

Thank once again for your feedback, and especially for asking such a great and hard questions regarding meaning of independently business between non-profit and profit business but I am willing to answer. An independent business is a business that is free from outside control. It usually means a privately owned establishment companies, as opposed to a public limited company, the latter of which is owned by investment shares traded in the stock market. In many cases, independent businesses are sole proprietorship,companies. Profit or normal profit is a component of (implicit) costs and not a component of business profit at all. It represents the opportunity cost, as the time that the owner spends running the firm could be spent on running a different firm. The enterprise component of normal profit is thus the profit that a business owner considers necessary to make running the business worth his or her while, i.e., it is comparable to the next-best amount the entrepreneur could earn doing another job. Particularly if enterprise is not included as a factor of production, it can also be viewed a return to capital for investors including the entrepreneur, equivalent to the return the capital owner could have expected (in a safe investment), plus compensation for risk.In other words, the cost of normal profit varies both within and across industries; it is commensurate with the riskiness associated with each type of investment, per the risk-return spectrum.Only normal profits arise in circumstances of perfect competition when long-run economic equilibrium is reached; there is no incentive for firms to either enter or leave the industry.
And a nonprofit is a business that first does not return a profit to shareholders or any individual based on revenues, and second performs some sort of community service or value to a community or group of people. Non-Profits in the United States do not pay Federal taxes on their revenues; but do pay a number of other taxes depending on the type of organization.In a nonprofit corporation Income cannot personally benefit any individual, as it does in a profit-driven corporation.Salaries are not considered personal benefits because they are necessary for operation of the corporation However, an excessive salary may cause a corporation to lose its nonprofit status.No one owns a nonprofit organization in the way that shareholders own a for-profit corporation. The typical nonprofit organization is a corporation controlled by a board of directors. The board of directors elects officers who conduct the day-to-day business operations of the organization.Many organizations qualify for nonprofit status under various definitions and can include everything from churches to sports leagues and public interest law firms.
according to your second question ... According to mean it is business which paly important role in developing of a country.The economic growth of a country is produced by business. Business provides services, goods and incomes for both, employees and business holders.

The development of a country is sustained by multinational corporations, medium and small sized businesses. This development is usually perceived as being supported by the multinational corporations, but mostly the family businesses and individual entrepreneurs are the greatest contributors to this development.
While small size, local businesses are of great importance in the development of a country, offering an income to the majority of people, the multinational corporations are of great importance in global economy. Many multinational corporations rely on local small size business through outsourcing and not all small businesses remain at this level. They could grow and while growing, the local economy is stimulated, because the headquarter of a company which has developed, will not change the location and community.
