If a business is having a hard time making profit they may simply aim to survive. If a business is doing well they may aim to expand their business. Frequently businesses aim to maximise their sales. This simply means selling as much as possible. Some businesses aim to have a very competitive service, so more people will use their service than their competitors.

Improving the lives of cancer sufferers has always been at the heart of Cancer Research UK. While there have been no major discoveries of any treatments or cures for patients yet, improving the lives of patients by helping them to lead a simple and hassle-free life is a main goal the charity wants to achieve. Cancer Research UK does not only want to help and assist patients in the UK, they also want to give a helping hand and their support to cancer patients all around the world. This is another reason for their great success and recognition as they do not want to witness cancer dominating the poorer countries of the world because they are a non-developed country. Cancer Research UK will do what ever it takes to extinguish cancer and will carry on its research and understanding until this world is free from such a dreadful disease that has claimed the lives of millions of people worldwide and for this reason, this is why continuing the fight against cancer is one of their aims. All the aims and goals of Cancer Research UK are geared towards caring and curing the many people affected by cancer which fits perfectly in the voluntary/not for profit sector of the economy. This charity as with other charities attracts many volunteers who are prepared to give their time freely, to achieve these aims and help this organisation. ?? ?? ?? ?? Hussain Mousa ...read more.
