The dumbest thing I have ever done with my money and what did I learn from it? S-A-L-E, SALE! My favourite four letter word. Hello, my name is Laurie...and I am a shopaholic. I am a person who shops compulsively and can't resist bargains. I go shopping at least three times a week. It was mandatory and I needed it to live. It was like my own brand of heroine. I believe that I need to go to shopaholics anonymous. From shirts to shoes to the jeans, books, music Cds, electronics, handbags and not forgetting the many trips to the movie theatres and going out with friends. Hitting up the malls, fashion stores and boutiques in the city, dropping hundreds of dollars every time, the adrenaline started rushing when I see a handbag or a pair of heels that appeal to me. When I found a really cute shirt or a handbag, I had to get all the different colors in the same style. I could never go window shopping without spotting something that hasn't caught my eyes. I always had the fear of regret if I didn't buy it then and there. Plus it may be gone the next time I came back which would lead me into a depression that I let that amazing handbag slip by. I went shopping when I was sad, mad or just feeling down. Instead of ice cream or chocolate as my comfort food, it was shopping. I convinced myself that shopping was the therapy that would cure me. Also, shopping was my main thing when I'm

The average price of our trainers was 40, sports jerseys 30 and 20. With a discount rate of 10% and a span of 7 years, the projected cash flows are worth 2,649,758
BACKGROUND REGARDING THE GENARAL PRICE OF GOODS SOLD IN THE LONDON AREA In 2012 we started up a sports retail company that was originally founded with the aim of targeting the huge number of athletes, sports fans and tourists that were expected during the course of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. We expected to make large sums of profits in 2012 during our first year of sales. In fact we were bitterly disappointed with the way business went compared to the high expectations that we had for the first year. The even bigger surprise was the rate at which the business grew over the next few years as a result of the exposure from the 2012 Olympic Games. We sold three sports items, Trainers, sports jerseys and T-shirts. In order for us to be competitive we had to study and research on a number of our competitors. Generally trainers were sold at about £50, sport jerseys £45 and T-shirts at about £30. We quickly realised that as we were not a known brand we would have to cut our profits short and undercut our competitors as to attract and tap into their customer base. Depending on the cost of items, performance on previous sales and of course the selling price of our competitors had led us to the decision as to what our selling price was going to be. The average price of our trainers was £40, sports jerseys £30 and £20. With a discount rate of 10% and a span of 7 years,
This paper will concentrate on Apples Apple TV business, and its complementing iTunes business.
Internet Strategy Analysis Apple TV and iTunes Vinay Kamath PART 1 Introduction On January 9th, 2001 Apple Computers Inc. (now Apple Inc.) opened its iTunes music store, thereby revolutionizing the music industry. To complement iTunes they also added industry leading gadgets like the iPod, Apple TV and iPhone. During these 7 years iTunes has evolved into a online media store catering to not only music, but also to podcasts, Movie Rentals, television shows, and Apps for iPhone. The one gadget that brings all these media forms (except Apps) into the consumer's living room is Apple TV. Apple TV is a set-top box that, in addition to content from iTunes, also consolidates content like photos, home movies, etc. wirelessly from the users. Apple TV, therefore, is the gadget that consolidates all the content owned by the user and manages it in one location. In addition, it presents that content on the best display and sound system that the user owns which in most cases today is a large screen TV and a surround sound system. This paper will concentrate on Apple's Apple TV business, and its complementing iTunes business. Background on the business From its infancy, Apple's computer line of products had a cult following. However, it never enjoyed a large market share. true However, iTunes and the iPod have brought Apple into the mainstream unlike any other product. The

Originally set up by the Will Keith Kellogg and Dr. John Harvey Kellogg brothers, the company was founded on a belief that "you are what you eat". It took the brothers six years to come up with the "correct formula" and create a once wholesome and pleasant to eat breakfast food. They finally had the start up product they had desired for such a long time, the product that within time became the worlds most popular breakfast, the product we today all know as Kellogg's Corn Flakes. It has been more than a decade since the product was introduced for the first time, however, it still remains the most highly rated, favored and preferred breakfast in the world. The Kellogg Company was originally founded in 1906, in Battle Creek, Michigan. It began as a small business entity, employing 44 people, producing one single product. Today the company possesses production plants in 19 countries, markets its products in more than 180 countries, and employs approximately 32 000 people across the globe.

Kellogg's original vision of health and nutrition for everyone continues to drive the company at the very top level. Brands are all around us. We encounter them
Searching for appreticeship in Berlin
Searching for apprenticeship in Berlin Initiation: I've chosen this subject because I thought it would be exciting to write about and because it may be a different topic. Searching for apprenticeship in Berlin: I decided to search for apprenticeship in Berlin because I would like to take a part of my education as a hairdresser international and I've always thought that Berlin was an exciting and different city, that contents many different people and styles. I also liked the thought of moving to another country with so many attractions and such history. So I decided to go for it and maybe be moving to Berlin. I started searching for hairdressers in Berlin on the Internet and choose an area, so I wouldn't have to walk through all of Berlin. I found twenty places and made a map to locate the hairdressers, so I didn't have to search for them, while I was there, because I knew I didn't have much time to deliver the applications. Afterwards I started writing my applications in German. I finished my application and CV, and had translated my certificate to German and was ready to go to Berlin and search for apprenticeship as a hairdresser. At Friday, January 8. I went with my aunt on a bus trip to Berlin, it was an almost 10 hour long drive and we were ready to go to sleep at the moment we had checked in at the hotel. The next morning we were going to see a museum, and grabbed
Business plan - . Organic food industry is growing in Lithuania and big chain Stores like Maxima, IKI, and others have their sections of organic food, but very few offer home deliveries.
Monika Viskontaite BUS 210 Entrepreneur Basics Workshop 3 Learning Activity #2: Executive Summary November 8, 2011 Read pages 209-210 in Chapter 8 of your textbook by Katz & Green, entitled Entrepreneurial Small Business. A business plan executive summary example is also provided in Exhibit 8.1 (p.?) Write a one-page summary of the business plan you wrote in Week Two. Interest in ecological production has been increasing for the past ten years. Depending on the changes in demand, the supply and variety of ecological food have also increased. Today consumers can find small sections of eco-production in any grocery store, on the other hand not that many businesses in Lithuania specialize in selling only eco-production. Organic food industry is growing in Lithuania and big chain Stores like "Maxima", "IKI", and others have their sections of organic food, but very few offer home deliveries. Despite that, companies compete with the variety of eco-production, which most of the time does not have a certificate to be labelled as eco-product. Political and economical factors not only influence the sales of organic products but also ecological farms activities. "Eco-tasty" is a retail and delivery company, which provides necessary eco-products for pregnant women, mothers, infants and kids. Organic food delivery for pregnant women is very important, especially for those who
