Things you must know before you start your business.

The start up of any business requires lot of time and effort. I would compare start up process to the time taken before a flight takes off. Every flight first runs on the ground for some time to gain momentum and then takes off. Before you fligh high, have you done your ground work?    There is a famous maxim “ignorantia juris non excusat”  Meaning Ignorance of law is no excuse! Every citizen ought to know the law of the land. Ignorance of the law excuses no one because the contrary would be to confer a premium on ignorance which would afford a defence to every transgression of the law. It lays down the importance of knowing what laws are applicable to your business. Just as you put together a business plan, you need to approach the legal aspect of a business in a systematic manner. Begin with the laws pertaining to the basics of starting a business. List down all the aspects and gather all the required information. Typically, to a small scale business the applicable acts are: Income Tax Act, Sales Tax (VAT), Service Tax, Provident fund, Shops and Establishment Act and Company Law (if the entity is a Private Ltd company) In addition to this, there are several acts which can have implication on your business like trademark and patent acts, intellectual property rights, laws relating to quality control,...

Namely, how should you take care of your spine? If you are physically active, the first two trimesters of pregnancy are absolutely not a contraindication to continue this activity, you should just exclude jogging and sports which require a lot of jumping. An active spine is the one controlled by muscles, and they are also worth looking after. Exercise and physical activity are the best remedy for pain relief and well-being. They increase blood circulation and improve the supply of oxygen, which is also very important for your unborn child. If your physical activity before pregnancy was limited to driving and sitting behind your office desk, then you should sign up for training carried out by a specialist, to prepare for the birth and the last trimester of pregnancy.
