You are probably used to sending your products packaged to your customers – after all, you don't want them to arrive damaged. What you may not be very familiar with is the packaging legislation within Europe. The packaging legislation focuses on recycling of packaging materials. In this blog we would like to inform you about this legislation, what it entails, how it works and how to comply.
The United Kingdom has fairly flexible packaging legislation: here you only need to register your company from 50,000 kilos of packaging waste. Germany and France, on the other hand, are much stricter: you are obliged to ensure all your packaging is being recycled. In both countries there is no threshold: you have to register when you sell your first product to a German or French customer. Since it is difficult to check whether your customers recycle the packaging, these countries know so-called ‘dual systems’, also called ’recycling...
Sophie has been working with virtual assistants a lot herself in her own business, for the last 3 or so years; her company Resource Worldwide had placed virtual assistants in over 100 companies in August 2020, from when they first started in December 2019.

In this blog post, what I would really like to do is talk about specifically how you can achieve your goals, and give yourself the best opportunity and chance to achieve those goals that you set for yourself.

In this blog post, you are going to learn the major insights on opening 3 wholesale accounts over the space of 24 hours, and that has been the result over the last 8 weeks of building a relationship, seeking out and finding these wholesalers, to the point where I say opened up accounts, it means that we now have an account with the wholesalers, we can place orders with the wholesalers, and even have phone numbers, where you can get on the phone right now, make a call, and speak about your account, and place an order on any amount of products that we desire (If they have it in stock).
The journey really started seriously in August 2018, and and it was the beginning of August, when Kev was invited to the FBA Academy, which is a seller conference that is held every year by Andy Laurence from wholesale, and he invited Kev there to speak and share our journey, what they had done over the last 3 years within their operations at the time.

In this blog post, I am going to be talking about goals. I am going to be talking about achieving your goals, by creating systems.
So, hopefully, this is going to be a very thought-provoking blog post for you, something which you can get your teeth into, something that you can sit down in your spare time, and you can reverse engineer the goals that you have in your life and business. The chances are that you have goals; the chances are that you have set yourself goals, and you are a part of that 50% who are more likely to achieve goals, if you have got them written down.

So, in this blog post, we are going to have a couple of examples, where we are going to be breaking down some business goals, some health and fitness goals, and then, at some...
In this blog post, I am going to be talking about how you can sell your business, preparing your business to sell it, and as you build your business, how can you optimise it, so that you have a potential opportunity to sell it?
One of the first things which Kev learnt really early on, from his engineering days; systemising in engineering is all about engineering and outcome, which is mechanical, and the probability of success and failure can be designed in a way to give it the optimum potential to each the outcome.
Learn how to hire staff members here:
Kev had the same philosophy coming into business, where if you want to build a business, you have got to see it from an asset point of view, where you are building something which is an asset that you can potentially sell. That was the philosophy of how everything that Kev has done, every single moment and every single strategic move, Kev always had that in mind.
Let me dig down deeper, and let...
This blog post has been inspired by a couple of posts which we have seen across social medias in some communities and groups, which have specifically spoken about labour shortages, which have specifically spoken about how to attract talent into your business, as you are trying to build your team and build your business. And there has been so much conversation on what impact Brexit has had, what impact COVID-19 has had, the lockdowns, all the government support which has been given to people and businesses, and there have been some people who have been speaking about struggling to hire people, saying that there are people out there that may be too lazy or the government have been giving too much support, so why would people go back to work? There have been so many conversations going back and forth, but I wanted to specifically touch on something, which Kev has personally experienced as he has built his team and his business over the last 6 years, specifically when it comes to hiring...
