How to Set up Remote Desktop Connection

How To Use Your Computer Remotely With Remote Desktop Connection for Windows 10

Check out the video I made on the topic below:

I often get asked “Can I use my eBay account from another IP address?”, “Can I access my eBay account through my phone?”.

Today I will show you how to do it. How to use Remote Desktop Connection on Windows 10.

I will show you how only you can access it. You can also use your computer from multiple places at the same time while someone else is using it (in case you have staff).

I will note this tip in the course “From Zero to Success” and show it to the closed Facebook group.

 

The first step is to right-click over This PC and choose Properties

Then select Remote Settings on the left

 

You will get a window pop up where you need to select Allow remote connections to this computer

After that, click Select User -> Add -> Advanced -> Find Now and select the users to which you want to grant access to and click OK.

Now your computer accepts Remote Desktop Connection.

How do you access the Remote computer (remote desktop)?

Type remote desktop in the Windows search bar and click on it. You will see this window when you do.

You need to type the IP of the computer that you want access to. You can check your IP address by going to Google and typing “my ip”.

Copy and paste it at Remote Desktop Connection window. Then you have to fill in the User name and Password and click OK.

And now you can access the specific IP with the specific User name and Password which you have set with User settings in the Control Panel.

Self-Analysis

Your Own Business Self-Analysis

Check out the video I made on the topic below:

In this article, I will try to answer the questions “Why is business analysis so important?”, “Which analysis should we use?” and “How do we analyze?”.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re still looking for your line of work or if you are adept in a business area, there are a few things you should do periodically to “get on track”. I am referring to Self-Analysis and planning.

The Self-Analysis process includes reviewing and analysis of your own interests, needs, and aims, skills, and qualities, values, your failures and successes so far, attitude models, etc. The process includes “piecing together” and analyzing the result.

Defining your own positive and negative features is particularly difficult. I will attach a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats)  Analysis blank in this article, and that way each and every one of you can self-analyze. I advise you to do it here and now and try again in a week. You will be surprised how after one week the result will be completely different. You will find a lot more weaknesses in your self than you will today since during that week your consciousness will single out every single thing that happens to you based on the SWOT Analysis’ questions.

This analysis is pretty easy and quite useful for everyone.

I, personally, found strong sides of my character from it, which I never suspected. For example, I never realized, that working on three monitors at the same time is an advantage. But you can get a lot more work done.

I strongly advise you to do the Self-Analysis. Finding out your strong suits as well as the qualities or flaws you possess is a lot more important than finding out what your competitor’s strategy is.

Art

Why Does Every Book Contains The Word “Art”?

Check out the video I made on the topic below:

In this article, I wanted to go over a topic which is on my mind quite a lot.

Every time I go to a library, I would see the words “The Art of…” written on the cover of a book.

It is an undeniable fact that nowadays Art is a much-needed deficiency. Art is what people look for and that is why people write about it, despite there being books with the title “The Art of…” where the Art is nowhere to be found.

The truth is that people need Art. Each and every one of us does.

Sadly, a lot fewer people are attending a theater, opera, ballet or classical music concerts.

It is as if Art is missing from our homes as well. For example, very few people have paintings or statues in their homes.

I doubt that anyone of us ever thinks that this is an issue. In time, due to the world getting less and less beautiful, people will turn into robots. Robots that work for money without a purpose. It sounds dark, but unfortunately, this is where the world is heading.

No matter how much money we have, we all need Art. We need good music, beautiful paintings, and nice poems.

I hope this article has inspired you to attend an event you find interesting or buy something beautiful that sparks joy when you look at it.

90-Day Challenge

90-Day Challenge

Hello everyone!

Today I want to present you a 90-Day Challange.

I Challenge you to post 10 products in your eBay store every day within 90 days.

If you reach your account’s limit, you can always call eBay and ask them to extend it. If you do, they will ask you where you get your goods from and what kind of goods are you selling. Nothing to worry about. eBay would simply like to know a bit about your business so, they ask questions like:

  • Where do you get your goods from?
  • What do you aim to do with your business?
  • How fast do you ship your orders?
  • What products do you have and are willing to sell?

You will notice that on the 90th day you will have 10 times the traffic if you list at least 10 products.

This is a proven method. Try it out and you will see that it will work!

Like Jerry Bresser once said: “List more, sell more”

Good luck, everyone!

The 3 Main Ways To Earn Money From Amazon

In this article, I am going to go over the three main ways to earn money from Amazon. Namely:

  • Private Label
  • Wholesale
  • Dropshipping

Each of those ways has a different definition for each industry.

Private Label

What is the Private Label method? Essentially selling products with a Private Label includes finding products which sell well in Amazon, making their own package and logo and have better deals than what they compete against.

Step 1: Research and selection of a product:

This might be the most important and time-consuming step in the process. That is because the website publishes detailed lists for their top-selling products. Despite the lists being made for the purpose of giving the users an opportunity to view what is popular, you can use it to your own benefit as well.

The ranking of the bestsellers is essentially used to search for the product before posting it on the market. Instead of developing a product and testing it to make sure it sells well, you can start by making sure it does sell well and then decide if you want to post it for sale. Pick popular products that are used by everyone, like water bottles, silicon spatula or a flashlight – types of products that can be manufactured with your own brand and packaging. In other words – you don’t want to pick products with a famous brand (Nike shoes, iPhone products) because those are branded products that can not be labeled as private.

Step 2: Find and contact a supplier:

Research a few different suppliers. Depending on how thorough their lists are, you can usually see the minimal required quantity per order (MOQ), price range, time for completion and if they allow Private Label. Nevertheless, you need to e-mail the supplier to receive an exact offer. There is a place to discuss the prices. Just be confident!

Step 3: Your logo, design, and packaging

After you find a supplier that wishes to provide you with a Private Label of the product, you need to choose your marketing materials. Don’t worry though – you don’t need to create them yourselves. Use a website like Fiverr or Upwork to hire professional designers for a decent price.

Step 4: Use Fulfillment by Amazon

Thanks to the program Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), you don’t have to manage the monotony of the orders for pick-up, packaging and shipment. Although FBA takes a small percentage of your profits, it is worth it for most sellers. Your shipment expenses are included in the fees and your products automatically become eligible for free shipment, which can help you realize more sales.

Step 5: Making your first sale

By lowering the price you attract people to make use of your product. You can also use the indoor advertising system by Amazon.

Wholesale:

Wholesale from distributors and manufacturers. With this model, the purchase and sale have a 40%-50% difference which makes it quite profitable. Best Buy and Walmart use that method. In Bulgaria it is emag.

The wholesale suppliers purchase goods from a distributor and pass them over to a retailer so that they can be sold to the user. The wholesale suppliers research and receive the most cost effective products by selecting from a majority of manufacturers and distributors. Then the wholesalers deliver those products to the retailers for purchase.

Dropshipping:

This model became extremely popular lately. To sell without owning the product. This, I think, is the most universal way to start.

Privileges:

  • You don’t need a large capital – probably the biggest advantage of dropshipping is that it is possible to start an online shop without having to invest thousands of dollars in the inventory. Traditionally, the retailers have to consume themselves with large quantities of inventory for purchase.
  • It is easy to start – dropshipping is a lot easier when you don’t have to handle physical products. With dropshipping you don’t have to worry about :

– Storage management and payment;

-Packaging and shipment of your orders;

-Processing returns and incoming packages;

  • Flexible location – the dropshipping business can be started from anywhere with an internet connection. You can easily communicate with suppliers and clients while managing your business.
  • A wide selection of products – since you don’t have to purchase the products that you want to sell, you can offer a set of products for your potential clients.

All of these advantages make dropshipping very attractive as a model for beginners and advanced traders.

There will be a detailed article on each of these three methods SOON!

My first failure in the software business

My First Failure With The Software Business

Check out the video I made on the topic below:

 I received a lot of criticism for what I said personally from friends and acquaintances. The criticism was followed by advises to hire a PR agency so I don’t say things that would ruin my reputation. I am only going to say it once: Vitan Radushev does not need an agency to tell him what is right or wrong. If I feel that something can be done better – I speak up. I do so based on the experience I have with software development. I can see how my new and old products sell. smpro.net earns $23.25 with the scrappers average while listerhero.com – $19.99. The plugin has not broken down in months and the repricer is tough to deal with, especially when the client base grows.

 

In this article, I want to tell you about my first failure in the software business.

Years ago, when I was creating the platform smpro.net, which was made for Dropshippers in eBay, I didn’t have a clear idea how to write software and how to grow a business. I didn’t know what rules to follow and how to build it adequately.

That is why I decided to create a platform that will satisfy the needs of all users.

That is how me and my colleagues started working on it. We wrote a platform like repricer and started integrating trackings, accounting modules, and many other things.

The platform itself became huge! It took us many years. In the end, it turned out that the users had gotten used to a specific price for a specific service. That way, offering them a few other services it made sense for the price to go up. With the price being raised, a lot of users felt it was expensive. The users are used to pay separately for the same services of different companies but that way the feel like they are paying less. Because of that, the clients on the platform were becoming fewer and fewer and the software could not prove that it was the best on the market.

The truth is for you to have a successful business you need to have a pre-made plan of the model you are going to follow; what kind of service are you going to offer clients. You need to have an idea of where the market is going.

The conclusion is that if me and my team made a few minor tools which were less complicated than that big platform that we created, we were going to earn a lot more money. The tools themselves were going to need smaller maintenance resource and that would have made our business much more successful.

I can tell you from my experience that before you “make it big” you need to “make it small”!
