HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, AUGUST 15, 2014 3 SBDC UPCOMING EVENTS Be the 25 Percent: 25 Tips to Make YOaU! Sta[tsU a Success (Part 2)o ee 18. But don't forget offline gin• Can u lower that margin first 12 tips to avoid becoming one of the 75 percent of startups that fail. How can you make sure that your new business won't be one of them? Here are the rest of the tips to help you be a success! 13. Don't plan forever Don't get caught in the trap of thinking that since you're plan- ning you're being productive• Planning must make way for do- ingmpreferably sooner rather than later, so use your time wisely• 14. Carry on planning Once you've done a bit of doing, go ahead and go back to planning. Constantly re-evaluat- ing your business and the direc- tion it's going in can help you find opportunities for growth. 15. Anticipate the future Nobody can know for sure what tomorrow will bring, but if you keep yourself informed and learn how to spot upcoming trends, you'll be much more likely to successfully predict the future. 16. Adapt However, no one can predict everything--you're only human, after allmso make sure you and your business are flexible enough to react to surprises quickly. Don't follow in the footsteps of movie rental company Blockbuster, the latest business to have failed in recent years because of their in- ability to roll with the punches. 17. Network online Harness the power of social media to help connect you with potential employees, partners, clients, providers, or people that can promote your product or ser- vice• opportunities Step away from the com- puter, put away your smartphone, and find people in real life at con- ferences and networking events. The connection you can make with a person face-to-face is natu- rally stronger than one mediated between screens. And of course, don't forget a professional busi- ness card to turn your encounter into a relationship. 19. Surround yourself with the right people Networking is a means to an endyou need to establish who is worth your time and who isn't. Don't underestimate the value of someone useful, and similarly, don't underestimate the destruc- tive potential of someone who isn't. 20. Be dedicated to work Launching a startup is not like having a regular 9 to 5 job-- if you want to avoid failure, you have to be prepared to fit your life around work. It may seem like working for yourself will mean better hours, but to be successful, you'll most likely be going way over the standard 40 hour work week. On the bright side, what- ever results from your hard work is entirely your own. 21. But find time to relax While any entrepreneur must expect an increased workload, you still need to find time to un- wind. Without being able to oc- casionally relax, you'll inevita- bly suffer from burnout, causing more damage to your business• 22. Negotiate everything Whenever a price is quoted to you, remember that a healthy proportion of that is profit mar- DECLARAT ONS OF CANDIDACY Ed Kerr I, Ed Kerr, hereby announce my candidacy for the office of Hidalgo County Commissioner, Position 1.

You might not always be able to coordinate a discount, but it's worth remem- bering one of life's most impor- tant rules: if you don't ask, you don't get. 23. Develop an elevator pitch Of course, if you want to con- vince the vital people that you're worth their time, you'll have to capture their attention within 30 seconds. If you can develop an elevator pitch that will intrigue people and show your idea has potential in that amount of time, you'll inevitably be afforded more time to discuss matters with them later. 24. Start marketing If people don't know you exist you can't expect positive results. Whatever your budget, there are things you can do (like tip #17) to start getting the word about your start up out now tweet, contact blogs, and tell ev- eryone willing to listen about your new venture. 25. Don't give up In many cases, startups don't fail--the people behind them give up. The single most effec- tive thing you can do to make your startup a success? Refuse to throw in the towel.

Christians believe in the Holy Trinity--three persons in one god. Others believe in different gods, but all are headed for the same purpose. Good citizens are persons who love their families and will take care of them and support them 100%. Good citizens are persons who support their government and will volunteer for the USA's three services--Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines--when needed. Many will die for free- doms' sake. Good citizens will go vote for their favorite candidate hop- ing for favorable results. My rec- ommendation is to go vote in November because all of us can- didates need your vote. If you haven't yet registered, go do it and you'll be proud if your can- didate comes out on top.
