High Touch High Tech: Inspiring Young Minds Across the Globe

Often, science is a tool that explains the world around us. It teaches children about life and the world we live in. From a young age, children start inquiring about science. “Mommy, what makes the sky blue”?  “Daddy, how does my gold fish breathe under water”? Science provides answers to these questions for children and students of all ages. Science tells a story, challenges us and allows us think outside of the box! According to Grace Beckett, the author of “Importance of Learning Science in School”, science teaches children about technology awareness, how to conserve natural resources, and even instills survival skills. It also encourages communication, problem solving, researching, and enables the child to create their own “hypotheses”, demonstrating “trial and error”.

High Touch High Tech brings “hands-on” science programs into schools around the world to ensure that this imperative subject is instructed in a fun and memorable way. Our staff works with various schools and their faculty members to coordinate “in-house” science field-trips to demonstrate how astonishing science really is!  If a first-grade science curriculum requires that the students are to be taught about “Earth Systems” we will come to the school and transform the children into mini-geologists as they sort, test and investigate all that they find.  The scientist/instructor will discuss the Earth’s underground layers and they will even apply pressure to create their own igneous rock. They’ll go on a gem panning expedition and uncover the Earth’s hidden treasures of real gems, rocks and minerals.  It will be a day that the students will never forget!

Our organization has been fortunate enough to inspire young minds across the globe. These informative, “hands-on” science programs allow students all around the world to experience what makes science so FUN! Our domestic and international operations are so grateful to have the opportunity to educate students about some of the “science world’s” most interesting topics. We are here to provide students with the idea that one day, they can create solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. From the United States to the Middle East we are here to make a difference and improve the educational science experience for students everywhere.

Transition From Your Old Job To Your Dream Job!

How to Transition from your Old Job to Owning your own Business as a Franchisee

There comes a time in your life when you grow tired of your day job and dream of owning your own business. You dream of being your own boss and setting your own schedule. But for many, they don’t know where to begin. That’s where becoming a franchisee comes in! Certain benefits come along when buying into a franchise model, for instance, there’s a proven company track record, an established brand name, training programs and not to mention ongoing support and marketing assistance.

So how do you choose which franchise is right for you?

Research, research, research! 

1. Attend franchise events. The International Franchise Expo claims that it is the largest expo in the U.S., with more than 300 franchises in attendance. The IFE conference is hosted annually, as well as a number of smaller regional events nationwide.

High Touch High Tech was in attendance of the 2017 International Franchise Expo help at the Javits Center in New York City this past June. We will also be attending some regional events throughout the rest of 2017. Please see our schedule listed below:

Austin, Texas – September 23 & 24

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – October 7 & 8

Orlando, Florida – October 20 & 21

2. Talk to franchisors and franchisees. Head to the franchisors website and request more information. Carefully review all materials including the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), a legal document that the Federal Trade Commission requires franchisors to provide. For a more in depth look, try calling existing and perhaps former franchisees. Ask the franchisees about their experiences, including the support they have received from the corporate office. For a hands-on look see if there is a franchise location near you and see if you can shadow them for a day. 

3. Consult with the Better Business Bureau. Check to see if there are any consumer complaints against a particular franchisor by doing a search on the Better Business Bureau’s website or by contacting the Federal Trade Commission. 

 4. Do a web search. There are a number of sites for basic franchise information. We recommend taking a look at the International Franchise Association’s website IFA, The Franchise Directory, Entrepreneur MagazineWorld FranchisingFranData and American Franchisee Association

Why You Should Buy a Franchise Instead of Starting Your Own

 

It is very rare a person will have all the natural expertise in every area of starting a successful business. Franchises provide an organized way to start, operate and grow a business. If the franchise is successful it should give you the whole framework of how the business is started.

Each business is individually owned and managed, however it gets to use all the benefits of the organization with the support and care of the franchiser.

Including:
-Group advertisement.
-Benefit of using known and legit services, trademarks, proprietary information, patents and designs. 
-Training from head quarters successful operators.
– Lower risk of failure and loss than starting a business from scratch.
– Complete operational assistance from the franchiser, during the beginning of start up and after in financing, accounting, employee training and operational.

Government research in previous years has been found that the success of franchise owned businesses verse non-franchise owned/ small businesses are much higher than the non-franchise businesses.

 

Quick tip!
If you chose a franchise that is in an area/ skill you really love, there is a much higher chance of succeeding and enjoying your job and company!

4 Online Passive Income Ideas


What is passive income?
It is a way to earn money with out being involved after the initial steps have been set up. The idea is to make money with out putting in any effort, essentially make money while you sleep.
 
1. Start a blog
Find your niche and write about it. Seems pretty simple and once you get a large enough following it will provoke different markets and products to use your platform to sell a variety of things based on your topic. A good understanding of how to market through social media would be required for this to work.
2. Write and publish an e-book
Write a non-fiction e-book on a topic you are well versed on is a great way to make income because it has virtually no over head and you don’t need to mail anything out. Preferably only non-fiction because fiction is not as profitable because of the massive market already created with Amazon and kindle.
3. Create an online course
An online course can take a lot of work up front to create. Finding your niche is best way to utilize the technical skills from your topic and create a course based on that. Once created like the e-book everything is automated and ready to go for your passive income.
4. Make a smart phone app
It is not the easiest thing to make with out the correct knowledge but it is possible to research and learn how to make an app. With the right idea an app can take off once made and be a great success like Instagram or Uber.

What Kind of Entrepreneur Are You?

Image Source: Pixabay.com

When it comes to these six types of entrepreneurs, which type are you?

  • Hustler
  • Innovator
  • Machine
  • Prodigy
  • Strategist
  • Visionary

The Hustler is an enthusiastic go-getter who can sell just about anything. They are supremely confident and conscientious and won’t let anything stand in their way. Zig Ziglar and Mary Kay Ash are great examples of this type of entrepreneur!

The Innovator is typically always forward-thinking and adventurous. They constantly seek to challenge old ideas, and find new and unconventional ones.

The Machine simply gets things done. Equipped with an aptitude for solving problems and a high level of efficiency, they always deliver quality.  Bill Gates is an example of a Machine Entrepreneur!

The Prodigy is blessed with an inborn business sense and instinct. They have natural intellect, a stoic demeanor, and strong social skills to help guide them to success. Elon Musk is a great example of a Prodigy Entrepreneur.

The Strategist is a creative and tactical thinker. They are always calculating a game plan. Their habit of long term thinking leads to success.  Two notable Strategist Entrepreneurs are Steve Jobs and Martha Stewart.

The Visionary combines new and innovative ideas with the drive and enthusiasm needed to rally the masses behind them. For example, Oprah Winfrey!

 

 

So… which profile are you? Perhaps you don’t quite fall into one of the six categories but are more of a mixture! Either way all six types of entrepreneurs are needed and very valuable!
