Describe a family business you know (new)
You should say:
What the business it
How you know it
What products it sells
Who the customers are
And how you like it
The LUCRATIVE SMALL-SCALE business that I'd like to talk about today is a boutique that I patronize, named "She Loves".
As a fashion shop, it sells an array of women's wear and specialize in dresses and blouses. Although they're not tailor-made clothes, customers can almost always find an outfit that fits them at "She Loves" because the shop will have the clothes adjusted, free of charge - I should add. There's also a range of chic accessories such as clutch purses and belts.
If I'm not mistaken, "She Loves" has been up and running for 2 years. What I find impressive about the shop is that within such a short period of time, its sales figures have soared and its business profile has been enhanced significantly. Its Facebook has at least 350.000 followers and there are hundreds of orders per month from different areas in the country. What's more, the shop's always packed with people shopping or browsing.
I knew about the shop by random, seeing its banner ad when surfing the net. Captivated by the dresses advertised, I clicked on the ad and have visited its website at least once a week out of a habit since then. Also, I drop by the physical store more than twice a month, especially when there are new arrivals.
If I had to give an explanation for my liking for the shop, I'd definitely say that I'm really content with the various products, plus the enthusiasm of the staff there. Despite being a family business, to my surprise, the shop operates really professionally. Besides, as it's a clicks-and-motar business, I can conveniently do the shopping right at home. "She loves" is surely always on the list of my favorite boutiques.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of family business?
How to be a successful businessman in your country?
Do people in your country like to work for big companies or small companies?
Do you think globalization is a positive development?
In what ways have families in your country changed in recent?
The roles of husbands and wives changed in recent years. Both spouses have been more open to perform different roles such as working outside the home or pitching-in with the household duties. Another change I think is limiting the number of children in the family. Parents nowadays think of having smaller families due to high cost of living.
Should husbands and wives have different roles within the family? Why (not)?
Traditionally, husbands and wives had clear-cut roles in the society. Husbands used to provide the financial need of the family, while women were expected to take care of the house. Changes had occurred over time and both husbands and wives started to take part in each of these roles. I think this change is good. It is not necessary to define each role. I think whatever role each husband or wife takes, as long as it is good for the family, it is okay.
Which are more important to you: your family or your friends?
Both are important but family is more important for me than friends. Friends may come and go but I know that my family is always there and will always be there no matter what happens in my life and no matter what decisions I take.
