3 Greatest Myths about Owning a Business

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a Business | OHS Aviation industry, film industry, me | Scoop.it

When I was younger I wanted my own business, but I didn’t know how to begin. Should I buy a franchise, join a multi-level marketing company, or start my own business?

 

I went to seminars, presentations, and sales pitches on selling everything from milk additives to fuel additives, from soap to jewellery.

 

A lot of the presentations were very high-pressured. They were designed to get you to buy, sign, and commit. It was all about selling the dream of a life of leisure; you could live like a king and enjoy life without hard work. You could be different from the average Joe—no longer serving the man but living the dream.

 

Having started and run three successful businesses myself and spoken to hundreds of small business owners I can look back over 35 years and say, “Yep, that was definitely a bunch of crap!”

 

These are the three great myths:

this is truthful reality, nothing is easy in life, only if you work for it! Business are still necessary though in life and if you are able to manage it, it should be an alright way of income, same with any other job!

I have seen this all in action as most businesses in my town have closed down due to hard times!

So true! Yes, you do have to get real when you think about starting your own business. All those overnight successes you hear about, well, there are very few of them and with hindsight most people's idea of "overnight" tends to foreshorten over time!

My future

Think about where you want to be in 5 years ... where would you like to work, what things might interest you, the countries you might like to live, the profession you might be pursuing ... make a note of some key words (at least 10) around those topics. Think about what questions you would want answered about OHS in this future place.

Ben Bishop's insight:

Within the next five years I would like to join a military defence force, either in Australia or America. I would like to work in either country’s Air Forces as either an Electronical Warfare officer (basically the crew member on the aircraft who mans all electronics on board an aircraft) or a Navigator (the person who navigates an aircraft). A profession I personally would like to also pursue is the ability to become a movie director of short and long films, both of these paths will take me many places in the world. Personally I’d love to live in an Asian country such as Japan, Australia as well as America of the west. The reason I would choose to live in any of these countries is because of the key features each place has to offer.

America has very relaxed filming and prop laws (such as realistic looking airsoft guns are for sale at very low prices, same with cameras and all other equipment required for filming and there are more people there willing to partake in the film industry). Also America was where I lived for 7 years of my life, thus is the reason why I do wish to return someday. In another note the military there is very large and spread out throughout the world, giving me a better chance to travel the world with the military.

 

Australia is a very peaceful country compared to that of America and is relativity safe (not counting the poisonous snakes and other deadly creatures that live here). I like it here due to the very relaxed nature of its citizens and people in general. Laws may be a tad too strict compared to that of other countries, but that is necessary for its protection it offers to its citizens. I live here currently as I have for the last 6 years.

 

Japan is another peaceful country with a relaxed feel to it, just as Australia and the respect to foreigners is very great here as well. Filming is fairly easy to accomplish due to the relaxed laws of the props needed to be used for some films. Its military is small, but very unique compared to that of other countries. I have lived here for 3 years, all the reason to return someday!

Ben Bishop's insight:

After each event such as this, a new legislation or rule/way of avoiding this mistake is put into place to make sure this doesn't happen again. This is to improve safety in more places not noticed before, this is why OHS and the investigation of accidents, deaths and injuries are very important to us all!

Emily Wylie's curator insight, March 3, 2014 8:28 PM

Investigations into the cause of adverse events, such as this one, can be used as a learning tool to improve the safety of alpine transportation. I feel that alpine safety is extremely important as if a situation arises where people are injured and need medical attention they are not as easily assessable as if they were involved in a road crash.

Interesting reason for crash being a faulty gauge on the plane. This seems too small a reason for the crash to occur. You would think that If your altmeter said that you were closer to the ground, you would check before you put plane in 'idle' given what can happen if  this is done at to great a height. I do not think reliance on one gauge on a large international plane seems adequate enough. Even when people drive their cars, inorder to change lanes both mirrors and head checks are done. We do not just glance to mirrors and turn given issues that can arise. Furthermore, surely on such a huge international airline a back up altmeter or a second 'fall-back' gauge available as to prevent this issue from occuring. Perhaps there is mroe than just the faulty altmeter at play here but rather no secondary back up system.

The 2 Things You Need To Know To Break Into The Film Industry From Ryan E. Walters | OHS Aviation industry, film industry, me | Scoop.it

After publishing my articles on How To Succeed As A Freelancer and How To Determine Your Day Rate I have received emails asking me how I broke into the film industry. As I have been reflecting on how I got my start, I realized it can be boiled down to two simple principles. By applying these principles to your career, you will be able to break into the film industry and grow your career.

Principle 01: It is not about what you know; it is about who you know.

Pompeii is such a beautiful place full of interesting history. I was lucky enough to walk around pompeii in 2012. These fresh collapses has resulted in closures of various parts of the site. The collapses have created OHS issues within the site as people could have been injurded or killed if this occured when tourists or people who work at the site were present. Hopefully the investigations into the recent collapses will allow for methods of restoration to be formed where enviromental damage can be minimised so collapses are prevented in the future ensuring that people can enjoy this amazing bit of history for years to come.
