A range of agricultural machinery produced by a creative entrepreneur from Pabna is making a significant contribution to the overall agricultural development of different districts in the north and south-west of the country.

The success story of Md Al-Amin Malitha, who in recent years has produced a set of machines to single-handedly grind rice, wheat, mustard and pulses, is not only fascinating but also exemplary for new entrepreneurs coming from the graduate engineer sector.

In 2007, Al-Amin’s father, Abul Kalam Malitha, set up a workshop with a 1,20,000 Tk welding machine at Mental Road in Chhatiani district of Pabna city, taking a loan of 1 lakh Tk with an NGO. In his workshop, he was repairing various damaged machines from different factories in the industrial city of Pabna of the Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (Bscic).

Malitha had no employees in her workshop. Al-Amin, who graduated as an engineer from Pabna Polytechnic Institute (Professional), used to help his father repair machines while he was still a student.

After finishing school, Al-Amin started working in the workshop as a mechanic, and after his father’s death in 2011, he took over the business.

Thanks to his education and perseverance, the business continued to thrive. At one time, one welding machine was not enough and he bought another one by spending Tk 2.5 lakh in 2013. Meanwhile, Al-Amin started repairing various types of vehicles powered by shallow engines .

In 2014, another welding machine was added to the workshop, which at the time had seven employees. In the same year, Al-Amin rented land in the industrial city of Bscic for the workshop. He moved his studio in 2017, having built a permanent building there. The total cost of constructing the building and purchasing another state-of-the-art welding machine was Tk 1.5 crore.

The self-taught inventor

Through the Internet, Al-Amin used to get ideas about agricultural machinery from different countries, including China. Spending hours and hours, he learned in detail how to make and use these machines.

Finally, in 2018, he managed to make a mustard oil mill himself in his workshop.

Inspired by his early venture into machine production, Al-Amin then built a rice thresher that received tremendous acclaim from buyers. Employees from his workshop started selling the electric and diesel appliances by going to the farmers’ doorsteps. At first, the machine was priced at Tk 1.5 lakh. Now it is being sold for Tk2 lakh.

Besides the nine Pabna upazilas, Al-Amin started receiving purchase orders from different districts in the north and south-west of the country.

Al-Amin and his team also built machines to grind wheat and grind wet rice to make cakes. The prices of these machines are not very high, they range from 70,000 Tk to 80,000 Tk.

Al Amin’s creative endeavors have also resulted in the production of pulse crusher machines and straw cutting machines for cow feed. The prices of these machines are Tk1.5 lakh.

Md Al-Amin Malitha said, “I have come so far working day and night with my own hands at the beginning of the organization. are more.”

“I don’t need to work with my own hands now because there are currently 22 employees in my workshop. I haven’t had to take out a new loan from the bank. I hope to buy a large piece of land soon and build everything myself,” he added.

College applications usually come with some uncertainty, but this year’s applicants tackle an additional question: what should you do when a pandemic has limited what happens to your college applications? university?

NerdWallet – NerdWallet

Many extracurriculars, including sports and clubs, have been unable to continue during the pandemic. And many school districts across the country, recognizing the challenges posed by the pandemic, have offered students the option of not receiving letter grades for the courses they have taken.

This choice left some students with “pass” or “credit”, or “fail” or “no credit”, rather than actual grades on their transcripts.

College admissions officers have been ready for these changes since before the current admissions cycle began, says David Hawkins, director of education and policy at the National Association for College Admission Counseling.

“Admissions officers clearly understand the challenges these students have faced because they have had these experiences themselves,” says Hawkins. “They were locked up just like the students were.”

So what are colleges looking for now?

As applications have changed, what admissions officers are looking for has changed.

A transcript filled with “pass” or “credit” grades will not be counted against you, admissions officials say. What will be taken into account are the letter grades that appear on your transcript, as well as the courses you have taken, says Steve Robinson, senior associate vice president for enrollment management at the University of Utah.

“I think a lot of schools look at the academic rigor of what a student has attempted,” Robinson says. “In a rural high school, there may not be as many [Advanced Placement] opportunities, or none, but what I can say is that the student took everything that high school offered academically – he really tried, even though he [have pass grades].”

” MORE: Are student loans worth it based on your major?

As the ranking has changed, the testing requirements have changed. Even before the pandemic, colleges began making it optional to submit standardized test scores, such as those for the ACT and SAT. The practice has spread to more schools due to the difficulties the pandemic has posed.

Extracurricular activities also don’t look the same as before the pandemic. Hawkins says that in some cases, how students spent their free time during the pandemic supersedes the after-school section of an application, at least in the eyes of admissions officials.

Some apps, including the Common App — a standardized college app accepted at around 900 schools — may provide space to write about your experience during the pandemic, such as struggles you’ve faced or a new skill you’ve learned.

“The other thing I’ve heard from admissions officers is that they’ve been pleasantly surprised and, in some cases, amazed at what students have continued to do even during lockdown,” Hawkins says.

Your best app plays to your strengths

With the option to complete some essays or submit test scores, a strong application is the one that best shows what you’ve accomplished.

If you took the ACT or SAT and got a score that will help support your application, send it to the college you are applying to. But if you didn’t get a score that you want to include in your application, don’t include it, says Christine Harper, associate vice president for student success and director of enrollment at the University of Kentucky.

“We will use what benefits the student the most,” says Harper. With part of the application now optional, students should look back on everything they have done and present the best version of themselves to a college, adds Harper.

” MORE: How to pay for college

Overall, the pandemic has forced college admissions officers to reevaluate their expectations of students, especially as high school students had different access to their usual activities, says Keri Risic, principal. Acting Executive of Admissions at the University of Minnesota.

Any changes to these activities are not considered negative, adds Risic. If you have something to share about your application that gives perspective on how you experienced the pandemic, admissions officers want to know.

Ultimately, while there are adjustments students can make to stand out in the application pool, the overwhelming message admissions officers have for prospective students is to worry less.

“Students should be quiet in a way, because the colleges fully understand the position they’re in,” Hawkins says. “Give yourself a little grace.”

Samuel Ferrell becomes the first member of the Chamber Youth Entrepreneur Program | Local News https://priscillasfriends.org/samuel-ferrell-becomes-the-first-member-of-the-chamber-youth-entrepreneur-program-local-news/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 21:43:00 +0000 https://priscillasfriends.org/samuel-ferrell-becomes-the-first-member-of-the-chamber-youth-entrepreneur-program-local-news/ Samuel Ferrell, an eighth grader at Crab Orchard Elementary, joined the Cumberland County business community with the creation of his video content service Plateau Visuals last fall. “I create video content for local businesses to post on their social media or an ad to advertise,” Samuel said. “I also work with community leaders and churches […]]]>

Samuel Ferrell, an eighth grader at Crab Orchard Elementary, joined the Cumberland County business community with the creation of his video content service Plateau Visuals last fall.

“I create video content for local businesses to post on their social media or an ad to advertise,” Samuel said. “I also work with community leaders and churches – anything you can think of can use an advertisement to promote what they do.”

This week, the Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce welcomed Samuel as the first member of its Young Entrepreneur Program and presented him with complimentary Chamber membership.

“We have a number of young entrepreneurs in the community who are doing their best to make their mark at a young age,” said Chamber Speaker Ethan Hadley. “We want to shine a light on these rising stars and help them contribute to the economic fabric of Cumberland County.

The Chamber invites all young entrepreneurs aged 21 and under to contact the Chamber. They offer free Chamber memberships to young entrepreneurs who are in business for themselves.

“We hope through this program to expose them to more experienced Cumberland County business people who can guide them on their journey,” Hadley said.

Samuel has a long interest in videos. When he was younger he wanted to be a YouTuber. He and his family moved to Cumberland County in 2016. During the 2020 pandemic, he took the time to research the video content industry and the technical details of filming and editing.

“I started a YouTube channel, played video games, reviewed products — whatever was hot,” he said.

He found that more Americans are choosing alternative television models such as streaming and that social media usage continues to grow with affordable advertising opportunities.

“My mission for Plateau Visuals is that through internet and social media marketing, I can help turn good businesses into great businesses,” Samuel said.

Parents Rick and Stephanie Ferrell said Samuel had long been an entrepreneur, but the idea of ​​a video content business really caught his eye.

“He’s very independent,” Stephanie Ferrell said. “We are the finance committee.

Rick Ferrell said: “He’s very motivated. He did a lot of research and put a lot of time into it. I may be biased, but I think he’s pretty good at it.

Samuel created a video of his experience at the Upper Cumberland Bigfoot Festival, created an advertisement for the mobile lounge Come To You, and created a promotional video for the fifth annual Crawfish and Shrimp Boil hosted by Zion Assembly Church of God of Crossville for May 2022.

Samuel officially launched Plateau Visuals four months ago. At the County Eighth-Grade Career Fair held in November, he gave Hadley his business card.

Hadley was impressed with the youngsters and shared the interaction with Sonya Rimmer, Chair of the House Board of Trustees.

Rimmer contacted Samuel and invited him to join the Chamber as a young entrepreneur.

“I was very impressed that you were doing this at your age,” Rimmer said, adding that many older businessmen find it difficult to present themselves like this. “Good luck to you.”

Samuel said: “I think it will be a good opportunity for me.”

To learn more about Plateau Visuals, visit the PlateauVisuals.com website or email him at plateauvisuals@gmail.com.

Young entrepreneurs can contact the Chamber at 931-484-8444. Follow the Chamber on Facebook to learn more about young entrepreneurs in the community.

During the pandemic, Riya khattar observed that people did not spend a lot of money, especially on new clothes. They made do with clothes they already had.

She was then struck by the idea of ​​creating a niche product that could be paired with existing clothing to create a whole new look, feel and style.

Riya khattar

This led to the launch of her Heart Up My Sleeve brand, which has now gained immense popularity after Riya pitched her idea to Shark Tank India and received Rs Rs 25 lakh in funds from investors Vineeta Singh and Anupam Mittal.

“While Heart Up My Sleeves was envisioned during the pandemic, it also solves a different problem. Most girls and women complain that they have too many clothes but nothing to wear. We wanted to change that by giving every outfit a touch of glamor, ”she says.

A psychology graduate, Riya comes from a family that owns a clothing business, which may have sparked her love of fashion and entrepreneurship.

The goal behind Heart Up My Sleeves is simple – to increase the glamor quotient of a feminine outfit or an entire wardrobe with removable sleeves, thus giving an elegant and chic look. It also includes brooches and capes for a complete makeover.

“Women love fashion and who doesn’t love wearing new outfits? In the midst of the pandemic, I learned the importance of a sustainable lifestyle and the intention behind Heart Up My Sleeves was to offer a collector’s item that will give you plenty of options to reuse your outfits without having to waste time. ‘impression of repeating them,’ she said.

Sleeves, capes and brooches are made in her father’s factory in Delhi where she employed two tailors.

A pouch for every occasion

Rhea breaks down the concept by explaining how these can be used.

“These trendy sleeves complement any outfit, whether ethnic or Western. You can transform your daytime outfit of a basic white t-shirt and jeans into a party look by simply adding one of these sleeves and a pair of heels. To repurpose any of your old sarees, throw in a dazzling pair of sleeves and your favorite jewelry to look glamorous in seconds! Accentuating your monochrome outfit can simply be done by including contrasting sleeves, ”she says.

Some sleeves are eye-catching, while others magnify elegance.

“Sleeveless bodycon dresses are exceptional with variations of lace. To wear with pants and work clothes, add a pair of neutral colored sleeves and you’re done! From sequins to ruffles and balloons to flair, sleeves come in all sizes, fabrics and colors for a healthy choice. We’re also taking it a step further with customization options and round-the-clock support for a more refined result, ”said Rhea.

Rhea’s co-founder is her older sister, Chandani Khattar, who has a Masters degree from New York. She has a solid business background and is also a fashion expert.

Heart Up My Sleeve targets a global audience – women aged 18-33.

She also has many influencers sporting her sleeves. Hansika motwani used them in one of Tony Kakkar’s music videos. Komal Pandey, Niki Mehra, Bandagi Kalra and Ankita Tiwari also styled the sleeves in several ways.

Heart Up My Sleeves started with an initial investment of Rs 10,000 and has recorded Rs 15 lakh in sales so far. Recently, Rhea raised Rs 25 lakh in financing for 30 percent equity of investors Anupam Mittal and Vineeta Singh by launching on Shark Tank India.

The current revenue model is D2C, with products sold through its website. Rhea aims to have the brand listed on all ecommerce platforms in the future. Rhea says the brand is the first to launch these products in India and looks forward to healthy competition in the market in the future.

“I believe Heart Up My Sleeves is a revolutionary brand. In the future, we also intend to launch removable collars and a brand new clothing line. We’ll take this brand to the next level with our latest additions to the family: Anupam Mittal and Vineeta Singh. We believe their expertise and experience will definitely help us grow this business, ”said Rhea.

Why invest in health stocks? Easy.

According to the Commonwealth Fund, the United States spends more on health care as a percentage of the economy than any other country – almost twice the average for OECD countries.

When you begin to analyze healthcare stocks, some common themes emerge: strong balance sheets and liquidity for M&A, not to mention dividends to line your pockets.

The boss of Kama Group shares organizational nuggets

Businesses look forward to adopting growth strategies in 2022

Employees go on their own, Agyekum Addo

The founder of the Kama Group of Companies, Dr Micheal Agyekum Addo, said terminating the contracts of employees who engage in embezzlement or bad behavior is not part of his organizational culture.

Over time, he said, these employees will leave on their own as the ramifications of their behavior will make them uncomfortable leaving the organization.

Kama Group founder speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show explained, “Another thing that is so unique about my style is the fact that if you steal if you misbehave, I never fire anyone.”

“… I know that’s the philosophy of so many people; that when they find out that you are stealing, you have hijacked, they see you, I don’t fire but others see, ”he explained.

He added, “I know that the longest stay of these people in my company is three weeks. They feel so uncomfortable that they leave each other. Why am I not firing? I’m not firing because they’ll misinterpret and misinform the public that they haven’t done anything wrong and you just fired them.

But the renowned entrepreneur and pharmacist explained, “… But if you fire yourself, then you don’t have to come and tell me you haven’t done anything wrong and I fired you, no. But I’ll prove to you that you added zeros, you didn’t put the money in the bank. I will no longer use you for certain sensitive positions and certain trades. That way you will be in the system and all staff will know you were a thief. You will not feel comfortable and you will leave each other.

The founder of Kama Group of Companies explained that this strategy he adopted has contributed significantly to the development and growth of his businesses, which has earned his establishment a place as a Club 100 company.

“So these are some of the strategies that will make a business grow. So far my business has grown so big and I am one of the Ghana Club 100 members, ”concluded Dr Agyekum Addo.

Now, as we head into 2022, we see the impacts of the past two years crystallize and new trends emerge, like the beginnings of the metaverse to change the way we define small business and how small businesses operate – online. , offline and in between.

A few weeks ago, I met my colleague Pooja Piyaratna, who leads Meta’s commercial product marketing group for small businesses. Together, we’ve identified four trends that will reshape the small business landscape in 2022 and beyond.

The evolution of entrepreneurship

A lucky byproduct of the pandemic has been a burst of creativity. All over the world, people have reexamined previously held assumptions – such as the need to conduct certain business exclusively in person – and exciting new ideas and businesses have sprung up. It has effectively redefined what it means to be an entrepreneur, adding more diversity to the small business space. In 2022, this trend will accelerate further, as a record number of businesses are expected to be created. One of the most interesting developments is the increasing frequency with which we see designers turning their passion into a life. For example, Emily Delaney, the Cheese Board Queen, started off with a humble Instagram showing her love of cheese and charcuterie boards in 2019. Now, three years later, she runs virtual classes and workshops, partnering up regularly. with marks and has a book to come. with Penguin’s DK Books in the spring. Its story of sharing a passion online and turning it into a bona fide business is not unique, and we will see more of it in the future.

The art and science of creativity

Over the past couple of years, small business owners have had no choice but to become increasingly creative with their digital presence. And for many, it opened new doors to drive sales and build their brand in the process. Live Shopping is a great example of digital technology that has helped businesses showcase their offerings while infusing their unique brand personality into an online experience. And for many, the beauty of entertaining live video combined with the convenience of shopping online has opened up new revenue streams that will linger beyond the pandemic.

Take the example of Kelley Cawley, owner of the Illinois store, who credits regular feeds on Facebook Live with making her customers more engaged than ever before, driving more traffic online and in person to her. store. To make Live Shopping a success, Kelley mixes the art of a fun Live experience with the science of digital tools and insights that help her understand what keeps her customers engaged. In fact, Crawley knows her sales have jumped 88% since implementing the direct buying strategy. Combining the art of creativity with a digital understanding of what drives success the most allows companies like Crawley’s to experiment, innovate, and make strategic decisions based on real data. In 2022, we can expect companies that have found a home online to experiment more – combining the art of creativity with data science tools – and ultimately find out which strategies work best for them.

Messaging paves the way for the next era of communication

Another interesting development is the way companies are using messaging to infuse personalization into their communications with their customers. People’s preferences for how they want to talk with businesses are changing. In the digital age, 75% of adults worldwide say they want to communicate with businesses through messaging, the same way they communicate with friends and family. As we move from the mobile internet to the metaverse, we know we’ll see businesses large and small working in more immersive formats to forge personal connections online. While it may seem like a long way off, the groundwork is already underway. For example, small businesses can now make video calls through Messenger, allowing them to talk and see their customers, helping them answer questions faster, provide better customer service, and of course, genuinely connect with each other. person to person.

Bridging the physical / digital divide

Many companies are now operating in a hybrid model, which means they maintain a physical presence while selling through e-commerce platforms that have become a necessity during the pandemic. In a way, we see the pandemic accelerating what ‘digital’ really means and as a result, there is no longer a binary divide between online or offline or digital and not digital. Take the example of Akila McConnell, owner of Unexpected Walking Tours in Atlanta. Before the pandemic, Akila’s company offered black history-focused walking tours in Atlanta. When the pandemic hit, she lost 100% of her income overnight. Akila pivoted online to sell gift boxes on Facebook and Instagram Shop that represented the best Atlanta has to offer and introduced virtual tours, pairing its physical offering with a new online experience. Figuring out how to balance and maintain in-person and digital experiences, and infuse the two experiences together will ensure that small businesses reach the largest customer base possible, without restricting them based on their geographic footprint, while providing the convenience that local customers crave. .

Despite all the changes and innovations that we have seen over the past few years that lie ahead in 2022, some things remain the same. The ability to watch, listen and connect with your customers will always be paramount to the success of small businesses, and now digital tools are making that easier than ever.

  • Aggie Hogg store and Don Library, circa 1925, on Don Mills Road.

“Aggie Hogg Gardens,” a small indoor street running along the green space amid the Don Mills stores on Lawrence Avenue and Don Mills Road, is named after a 19th-century North York notable who was ahead of the curve. on his time.

According to Patricia W. Hart’s “Pioneering in North York,” published in 1968, Aggie Hogg boldly entered the male-dominated business world rather than the then-usual female role of housewife. She never married.

Born in 1834, Aggie was the daughter of John Hogg, a Scottish immigrant who owned a farm and a sawmill where the Shops are now located. He donated part of his property for Don Mills ‘first school, a log cabin, erected in 1837. He had a general store and was Don Mills’ first postmaster.

Aggie lived apart, in a brick house built on her father’s property; hers had been a frame house. As her father was retired, she decided to copy him and establish her own post office combined general merchandise store.

His house was quite large; she used the ground floor for her business. She reserved space for a lending library, the first at Don Mills, with books provided by the local Literacy Society. She took the teachers upstairs. It was generous because the underpaid teachers could not afford to pay low rents. In her own way, like her father, she enabled the pioneers of North York to obtain a formal education.

Customers of all ages called her “Aggie” rather than Miss Hogg, and, according to Hart’s story text, she spoke in a Scottish brogue, greeting the children with “Well, yes, yes, how are you. the day ? “And mothers with” How are the little ones? ” ”

Idiosyncratic, she often wore her two pairs of glasses on top of each other. The store had a bell to call her when she was in the back garden.

Children flocked to Aggie for candy. A single penny was enough for many caramels with vanilla cream inside, called “bull’s eye”, or sugar sticks of different colors.

Naughty children have stolen icing sugar from an open box. To stop this, Aggie substituted similar Epson salts. Eating Epsom salts caused diarrhea. Aggie no longer had any problems with the children.

Kingdom Financial Academy receives a helping hand from global branding expert Rey Perez, who turned a hybrid virtual Christmas event into a life-changing moment for homeless teens and domestic violence survivors in the world. south Florida.

Miami, United States, December 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –

A shocking study involving only Millennials found that 84% were financially illiterate. Concern for the financial future of those aged 18 to 34 is greater today than at any time in history. Miami-based school Kingdom Financial Academy has helped underserved communities break free from financial strongholds. However, they (like many nonprofits) depend on donations from those with a desire to make a difference.

Enter Rey Perez, a global brand expert, serial entrepreneur and philanthropist who has spent more than two decades building a global brand empire by empowering executives to maximize their influence and monetize their mission. He does this by inspiring entrepreneurs and business owners to “bring out their inner superhero and share it with the world.”

Rey has partnered with Daniel Isaiah Shalach, a local pastor and co-founder of Kingdom Financial Academy, to make an impact in their South Florida community. Shalach, who himself has partnered with many faith-based entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and is an accomplished digital marketer, was looking for an angel and he found him in Rey.

Daniel’s passion for empowering survivors of domestic violence is matched only by his desire to reach out and teach adolescents who left the foster care system at age 18 and find themselves in a shelter for homeless. Kingdom Financial Academy serves them by guiding them through the steps to gain financial clarity while sharing the secrets to mastering their finances and credit.

“When I first contacted Rey, I knew he had both the right connections and the passion to make a difference. I didn’t expect him to feature our nonprofit as a beneficiary of his Business Growth Bootcamp. He partnered with several entrepreneurs from across the country who attended his live event and raised $ 3,300 for our charity. He then pledged to help us raise the remainder of the $ 27,000 we need to empower 1,000 families in the first half of 2022. ”Shala’h said.

Perez, who has appeared in several publications such as Forbes.com and Entrepreneur.com, has spent the last few years perfecting a next-level digital business card app that connects all of your media in one place called My 360 Sites. Rey is hosting a two-day branding event called Brand in 2 Days where he (along with other national experts) shares with entrepreneurs and professionals how to generate more leads and sales for their business by leveraging this revolutionary new app. .

The Brand in 2 Days December event was where Rey decided to kick off her union with Kingdom Financial Academy to break down financial strongholds while giving back to her beloved local Miami community in 2022.

“I already have a non-profit organization called ‘Influence With Love.org’. It focuses on supporting disadvantaged children, teaching them entrepreneurial skills and mentoring them to help them understand that they can be whatever they want in their life. We support several youth organizations in the United States and around the world, such as Colombia, where the level of poverty is devastating. These children (many orphans) just want to be loved and to know that they can have hope to change their future. Partnering with Daniel has allowed me to be part of an impact here and now in South Florida. Daniel presented the opportunity, and I stepped up without asking a question. Rey said.

Rey is part of a socially conscious business movement that empowers entrepreneurs, business owners and / or anyone who wants to make a difference to do so by donating their TIME, TALENT or TREASURE. He is focused on his 2022 goal to change lives on three levels, locally by partnering with Kingdom Financial Academy, nationally by mentoring his clients on professional branding in a way that properly emphasizes valuing their skills and passions, and finally, globally reaching out to orphans and young people. in other countries with few resources.
