slow-steady-wins-the-raceIf your initial business is a success at local level, do not be overwhelmed, save it for future. It is just a start for you to become a millionaire. Some entrepreneurs can’t handle the popularity and profits, they open new outlets, production units too early, and when it crashes, their business is all gone by then. Gear up for a marathon, save your profits, invest half of the profits, make them double and spend half of the profit again. Do it until you are capable to expand to enough extent to be secure.


Think hundred times before starting your new venture. If you have investment, do not opt for a random gig, observe the market, take your time, assess the market worth, what you are going to offer would stand there after 10 years or not? Develop a chart for your potential product. Finalize it with the help of some business expert, debate on it. Most of the new businesspersons do not bother to take advice about the product they are going to launch ending up miserable and apart.


It is important to analyze and evaluate your potential rivals in the same field. Do manage to check out their profits, outputs, and inputs in the business. It will easily tell you what you are going to do is profitable and has a scope on national level or not. If the product has potential to grow but your rivals are not earning enough or they are earning at huge profits, then it is the best chance for you to start it with less profits. It is advisable to be as creative as you can, the new thing is always a hot dog for customers.


If you have put your heart in it, don’t just walk out of it. It will hurt you badly at start, do not lose the hope. Get yourself going until it is on the right path. Forget about weekends and Saturday nights, work hard, and smart. Read inspirational books by successful businessmen, they are written to boost the confidence of rookies.

Looking For a Great Way to Ring in ’07?

Each year, eager Garden State party-seekers spend countless hours toiling over their New Year’s Eve plans, which often involve dragging their bridge-and-tunnel selves into Manhattan where they proceed to drop ludicrous amounts of cash at crowded bars where there’s barely room to breathe. But it turns out you can actually do the same thing right here in New Jersey without having to pay that whopping Holland Tunnel fee or PATH fare.

Here are 10 suggestions for potential NYE revelry west of the Hudson:

What would New Year’s Eve in North Jersey be without a hip indie rock show? OK, it would probably be itself, since hip indie rock shows generally don’t happen in North Jersey – except a few times a month at Maxwell’s, which this New Year’s Eve will feature retro-soul girl group sensation the Dansettes, and ’80s tinged Detroit party rockers Electric Six. Admission is $25, and that includes a buffet and midnight champagne toast. 201- 653-1703, 1039 Washington Street, Hoboken.

Asbury Park may just be the coolest spot in the state to ring in ’07 this year. New Jersey’s favorite party-down dance-punk sextet Miss T.K. and the Revenge will be hosting its very own New Year’s Eve masher at the Saint. (Door are at 8 p.m., 732-775-9144,; 601 Main St.), and while you’re in town, be sure to head up the street to Asbury Lanes (209 4h Ave.) for its third annual Punk Rock Prom. 732-776-6160,

For those of you who never retired the bondage pants, creepers and studded belts you bought back in 1996, head to Clifton’s brand new Clash Bar where the headlining act is old school Jersey street punk miscreants Blanks 77 – yes, they ARE still a band. Expect classic punk, glam, new wave and rock ‘n’ roll tunes on the turntables and/or jukebox. 973-772-6149, 39 Harding Ave., Clifton.

For Jersey club kids, DJ Yoshi will be spinning the best in top-40 remixes, house, hip hop and R&B at Montclair’s Diva Lounge. For $140 you get an open bar, sushi and hors dourves – admission is $100 if you strictly want unlimited booze. 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. 973-509-300, 369 Bloomfield Ave., Montclair.

New Jersey’s newest gay bar, Club Miami, is hosting a party complete with a DJ, champagne, prizes, and perhaps most enticingly, a continental breakfast. Can you think of any better reason to actually enter the city of Elizabeth? Admission is $20, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. 212-201-1317. 605 Westfield Ave., Elizabeth.

If you don’t want to be land-bound this New Year’s hop aboard the Famous Legacy Boat Miss New York, which will depart from the Paulus Hook ferry terminal at 10 p.m. (boarding is at 9:30). A DJ will spin a mix of house, hip hop and rock as the Miss New York circles Manhattan during the four-hour cruise. $125 gets you buffet-style hor dourves, an open bar, a midnight champagne toast and party favors. The ship’s capacity is 250, so get your tickets now if a maritime New Year’s party is your sort of thing. 212-201-1317, Paulus Hook Ferry Terminal, Jersey City.

It’s come to our attention that not everyone drinks – yeah we know; it’s hard to believe – and if you fall into this category, First Night Morris County might be your ticket. First Night is an alcohol-free arts and culture celebration that’s held in city’s throughout the world on New Year’s Eve, and Morristown’s is the largest such event in New Jersey, attracting as many as 10,000 participants each year. Expect more than 400 artists in some 80 performances at 25 venues all within walking distance of the Morristown Green, as well as two fireworks displays. Admission is $15 in advance or $18 the night of the event. 973-455-0708,

Lounge Zen, Teaneck’s new-ish cocktail lounge and art gallery, won’t have an open bar, but it’s a good spot for anyone who would rather relax than party while this year’s. The $5 admission covers the cost of a midnight champagne toast and the retro-electro sounds of DJ Onda Skillet on the turntables. 201-692-8585, 254 Degraw Ave., Teaneck.

The 2006 New Year’s Eve Downtown Carnival at Jersey City’s art-friendly L.I.T.M. offers guests a swanky evening via two separate admission packages: The $100 “Venice” (four-course dinner, premium open bar, sparkling splits, dining room seating, picture with frame, party favors and masks) or the $60 “Rio” (bar food, select open bar, sparkling toast, bar lounge seating, party favors and masks). Soul DJ and saxophonist Bryan Beninghove will provide the music. 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. 201-536-5557, 140 Newark Ave., Jersey City.

OK, we’ve saved the best for last. Word has it this year’s hottest New Year’s Eve party is going down at a club called “Your Living Room.” There’s no cover, only your tightest homies are invited, and you actually get to stock the bar yourself. There’s also a T.V., as many as like, 16 to 27 champagne toasts, 5 million snacks, and a fridge stocked with Gatorade to combat your hangover the following morning. You’re kind of a sucker if you go anywhere else.

Alleged McGreevey Boy Toy Fights Back

When James McGreevey resigned as governor in 2004 he disappeared off the face of the map.
Two years later he would crawl out from under a rock to promote the hell out of his book, “The Confession,” which details his fall from political power after proclaiming to be a “gay American,” allegedly having a consensual homosexual affair with Golan Cipel (who he hired as a security advisor with no qualifications).

Though he’d pass up Exit, McGreevey soon bore all to Oprah Winfrey, The Associated Press, numerous other print publications and Internet sites. He related his sexcapades with Cipel, which he described as a “a boastful, passionate, whispering, masculine kind of love.”

But apparently, Cipel got tired of his name being dragged in the media mud. He has finally spoken out.

Cipel recently appeared on “Larry King Live” claiming that McGreevey’s outing was “part of the spin.” He said McGreevey – upon receiving threats of sexual harassment by a purported heterosexual Cipel – was advised to beat the heat by declaring his homosexuality first in order to “be perceived as the victim,” reported Associated Press.

While he attests to his “gay American” status, Cipel said McGreevey is actually bisexual. Cipel claims McGreevey mentioned having heterosexual encounters with prostitutes, according to Associated Press. He also pleaded to the gay community “not to embrace McGreevey” since he sexually harassed him, as well as others.

McGreevey released a statement on King’s program that read, “I stand behind the truth and accuracy of every word in this book,” reported AP. “My only wish for Golan is that he find peace and acceptance in his life.”

See Jane run. Run, Jane, run.
Whoa. It’s hard out there for a bear in Sussex County. Not only are you feared for your growl or merely standing up, but now you’ve also got pregnant women running away from you, and that’s usually not a good thing for anyone. The New Jersey Herald reported a Vernon Police received a call from Stonehill Condominiums that a pregnant woman had to be taken in an ambulance after she allegedly was startled after seeing a bear.

The woman, whom officials said was nine months pregnant, fell after attempting to run away. The paper noted bears are usually commonplace sightings for Sussex County residents, though Department of Environmental Protection guidelines advise yelling at the bear instead of running, slowly backing away instead of legging it.

Basically, we’re supposed to call it names. The bear never wins.

The Six Million Dollar Woman

Women climbing for top-dollar jobs can feel like the mythological king Sisyphus, damned by the gods to push a boulder up a hill only to have it escape each time he reaches the top.
Though the Equal Pay Act of 1963 was enacted to ensure equal pay for equal work, fulltime New Jersey working women only earned 78 cents per every dollar a man made in 2005, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national average is 81 cents to the dollar.
Exit asked the experts what barriers exist for working women today, and how they can clear those hurdles.

Barrier: Sometimes they ask for it
Oftentimes, women have themselves to blame when it comes to pay disparity.

“Women in situations that involve negotiations either don’t ask for anything or ask for less than men in the same situation,” said Gretchen Marx, associate professor of management services at Saint Joseph College in Connecticut.

Besides failing to speak up for themselves, women often use vocabulary that downgrades their accomplishments.

“Because of their competitive nature, when guys talk they talk about things big time and their role in it,” said Mary Cantando, author and nationally-recognized expert on women business owners. “Those are the kinds of things that get you advancement in corporate America. A woman may downplay her personal involvement and talk about her team.”

Because women make up only 5 percent of the top earners, competition is cutthroat, said Cathi Rendfrey, director of the Women’s Opportunity Center at the YMCA in Burlington County.

“Women can be their own worst enemies,” Rendfrey added. “There are not enough of those top jobs for females so they are holding onto them. They become very territorial. Instead of mentoring and helping each other, they’re afraid of losing their jobs and careers. So a lot of backbiting goes on.”

Solution: Be a leader, not a bitch
“Great women mentor,” Rendfry said. “They help teach other women as much as they know and bring them along for the ride.”

Cantando said that women also sell themselves short by the verbiage they use.

“Many women have a limited mindset,” she said. “They use the world ‘little’ a lot like, ‘Oh yeah, I have a nice little business.’ Little is a word I challenge my clients to cross out of their vocabulary entirely, especially in describing themselves.”

Barrier: His and her careers
Americans tend to view many careers as gender-specific, according to Dr. Terri Boyer, director of education and career development research at the Center for Women and Work at Rutgers University.

“When you think ‘nurse’ you automatically think woman,” she said. “When you think ‘construction worker’ you automatically think man.”

Occupations like nursing or teaching are traditionally labeled “women’s work” and are often lower paying than positions often associated with men, said Boyer.

Carolyn D’Anna, head of human resources at the public accounting firm of J.H. Cohn, said that while 65 percent of her college recruits were women, she said they didn’t make up a large percent of the partners in the accounting firm.

“There are a lot of hours that are expected and tax season is very demanding on people’s schedules,” she said. “Employees were thinking this was a job they couldn’t work with and have other alternatives like flexible schedules … [But] women can be in management roles and be leaders within the firm. Everyone just looks at this as a profession more for men; women [were] thinking it was just not possible for them. But it is possible, and that communication is being given to them.”

Similarly, while women make up half of the law graduates for over 15 years, they only represent about 16 percent of the partners in the nation’s major law firms, according to a survey by the National Association of Women Lawyers.

“We often find unwritten rules and society’s vision running rampant in this career sector,” said Danice Kowalczyk, managing director of BCG Attorney Search, which recruits for law firms in NJ, NY and CT. “What are these rules or vision? Well, some clients only want male lawyers. Some law firms focus on promoting men before women.”

Solution: Realize your true strengths
J.H. Cohn has developed a program aimed at helping women view what they consider weaknesses (such as sensitivity) as strengths. The program aims these attributes into leadership skills by discussing the art of conflict management and teaching how to network effectively.

Barrier: Double standards for time off
Today, discriminatory practices are trickier to identify and more difficult to overcome.

“It’s hard to define visible barriers that were in place say 30 years ago,” said Boyer. “Things like outright refusals of individuals [for a job] based on their sex or gender are almost non-existent.”

However, a woman taking leave from work to care for children, the sick, or elderly can be looked down upon in the workplace.

“When a man in a high-powered job takes time off to go to his kid’s soccer game he’s often praised for being a good engaged dad,” said Boyer. “But when a woman does the same thing … she’s just being a mom and not focused on her career.”

Flex time policies, which allow employees to determine the hours they work to meet familial needs, are meant to create a proper work/life balance. However, female employees vying for top positions don’t take advantage of the option for fear of being perceived as slackers.

“We tell women on interviews not to bring up childcare,” said Rendfrey. “You want employers to think that you just work, work, work and don’t take too much time off.”

Solution: Do your homework
It’s often difficult for a female to determine if an employer is actually paying her less than a male co-worker at the same job due to excessive time off.

“The only way some people find out is if someone else knows it,” said Rendfrey, “or if there’s a bookkeeper that chit-chats.”

Mark Tabakam, principal and partner in the law firm of Fox Rothschild’s Labor and Employment Group, suggests employees take summaries of job descriptions or duties and make side-by-side comparisons to see whether wage differences are justified based on the type of position.

If you’ve done your research, documented your daily duties and still have reason to be pissed, take it up with your boss to negotiate.

Barrier: Higher education than men required
“We know that men who don’t have bachelor’s degrees do earn more than women who are in the same situation,” said Boyer. “In order to kind of equal that out, women do try to get more credentials.”

More female high school grads are likely to go to college than males (72 percent and 61 percent in 2004), according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Also in 2004, 58 percent of all bachelor’s degrees in the United States were obtained by women, according to Ohio State University.

Regardless, working men with advanced degrees still average at least $793 more per week than their female counterparts, as noted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

But women who take time off work, either for education or for other reasons, may sometimes put themselves at a disadvantage.

Senior business executives say it would take females two to four years to have equal footing in the workplace after having left for at least two years, according to a Pepperdine University survey.

The Harvard Business review found that women lose an average of 34 percent of their earnings when they off-ramp for more than three years. To stay competitive in the business arena, the executive respondents suggested that women obtain an MBA prior to returning to work.

Solution: Debatable
Some experts say women workers don’t need additional credentials to stay competitive. Others said having a few extra titles at the end of your name may provide greater leverage against men. Perhaps it’s better to err on the side of caution and grab a college catalogue of courses.

Going it alone

Who: Felicia Palmer, entrepreneur
Age: 36
Where: Jersey City

What: Co-CEO of the new media production company 4Control Media, and (Support Online Hip-Hop), a Web blog dedicated to news and gossip in the hip-hop industry. She formerly served as the new media manager at Essence magazine, where she launched Essence online. “I grew up in the Bronx, the birthplace of hip-hop. You can take the girl out of the Bronx, but you can’t take the Bronx out of the girl … I wanted to embrace urban music and culture.”

Success: claims to be the longest and largest standing online portal in the music industry receiving 1.5 million visitors monthly. A merger with The Urban Box Office enabled the creation of the annual Hip-Hop Awards in 2000. The award show was named “The Online Grammys of Hip-Hop” by Entertainment Weekly magazine.

Inspiration: After graduating from Cornell University, she landed a job at Momentum Partners, a licensing firm run by Susan Miller. “She was a good example for me to see women in the workplace and women being successful and creating their own opportunities.”

Challenges: “I have a son that’s two-years old,” she said. “I have a husband and although he’s equally involved in working and raising our son – to me, I’m his mother. I have to be there, that’s my role. It’s the challenges of trying to meet the responsibilities that are traditionally ours, and that we traditionally embrace, and at the same time, still finding a way in this world.”

Insights: “Make your own lane. You have to figure out what you can do and only you can do and you’ve got to hold fast to that.”

“It’s not an overnight situation. You must commit 10 years to see the fruits of your labor.”

“The race is not given to the swift, but to he who endures to the end.”

Just 10 years ago businesses operated by women weren’t considered “serious” ventures, according to Mary Cantando, a
nationally recognized expert on women business owners. Banks didn’t give women the needed loans. But today, loans to women-owned businesses are up 48 percent from the past five years, according to Star Ledger. In New Jersey, 28 percent of small businesses are run by women, according to the Office of the Governor. Women employ 25 percent of all the workers in the U.S., said Cantando.
