Methodology For my project I am going to use primary and secondary sources. I will use primary as I know exactly where the information is coming from. And I will use secondary as there is simply some information that I cannot obtain myself and I want to be able to compare my results from my primary sources with other valid data. Primary I am aware that as I already think I know what the outcome of my project; I may be biased in the questions I ask in my interview and questionnaire. I may also not record the answers to the questions asked in my interview and questionnaire, if it is not the answer I need to prove my hypothesis. I am aware of this and I am going to make sure that I am not biased at any point throughout this project. For my primary research I will be interviewing two people. One female that I know of having their first child at a young age and another woman that I know of having their first child at an age that is seen as old to have children, in our society. I feel that interviews would benefit my project greatly as they are a great way to get an insight into my chosen topic from the interviewee's point of view. I will also be able to see difference between the social class a person feels they belong to and their sociological social class. I will be using a structured interview, which means I will be using set questions although I will allow the interviewee

SECTION D) COMPARE THE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF YOUR TWO BUSINESSES. WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM? All businesses have aims and objectives to help them plan and set targets for what they want to achieve. The difference between a successful business and an unsuccessful business is their ability to have a clear vision of what they hope to achieve and how to plan for the future. An aim is what a business sets out to do, and an objective is a target, which is set by the business so that it can be achieved. For Example, when McDonalds first started out its main aims would have been to: * Survive in business for the first year * Sell as many meals as possible * Make a profit * Concentrate on selling to the local community.

Impressions India Ltd is a private limited company, which started trading in 2001 by importing and selling Traditional Indian furniture in the UK market and had a very positive response. Over the years the company traded all over the UK and had made very good relationships with their customers.
