Is This A Sign Of A Business Going Tubby-bye-byes In The Near Future?

The usually reclusive owner of Sports Direct has stirred up both controversy and publicity in the City by branding certain investors ?a bunch of cry babies? and declaring that shares in Sports Direct are ?not for the fainthearted?. Due to ?exceptionally difficult” trading conditions in the wet weather, the company issued a profit warning but controversially refused to release like-for-like trading figures and consequently shares plummeted 25% in one day. Speaking to the press, Mr Ashley said: ?I am building a long-term business. I can?t spend all my time worrying if the share price goes up and down. It may drop to 80p, but over three years I am betting it will be nearer 800p. I have built the company over 25 years and I am planning the next 25 years. But all anyone wants to talk to me about is what happened in June”.
Am I alone in thinking this means big trouble?

I Need To Choose A Second Business To Write About?

For my assignment at school, I need to choose two businesses for a marketing task. I’ve decided to write about PokerStars because I know a lot about them and how they advertise and market their products and service. However, I want a second business which is similar to PokerStars but it can’t be an organisation like PKR or PartyPoker since they are both in the same sector. Can you think of a good company that will go well with PokerStars in my task? When I say similar, I mean by operating on the internet and preferably a company in the gambling industry but that’s not essential. Any ideas? Thank you very much for feedback. =)

Are There Any Business Opportunity Review Sites That Are Legitimate?

I thought I had found one at legitness.com. The owner claimed he will review any ebook, etc. instead of you having to buy it , so you won’t get scammed in case it’s garbage.
But some of his „recommeded” offers are well known scams, Sports Betting Champ, Doubling Stocks, he even gave a „thumbs up” to an opportunity that involved mailing letters and assembling products, two of the oldest scams that’s been going on for years.

Who Wants To Hire Me To Work At Their Small Business Or Other Opportunity?

I am very good at math, missing only one math question on my way to a 1400 on the SAT. However, it seems like I have been consistently screwed over. I finished 57th out of 569, one out of the top 10% at my high school, thus failing to qualify me for automatic admission into a state school. I figured my 1400 was golden, but UT denied me acceptance. After one year of college i reapplied with a 3.19 GPA. The minimum on the website indicated a 3.0 or higher would be acceptable. Due to increased applications and other factors, I later recieved a letter regretting to inform me a 3.2 was the minimum, 0.01 over my GPA.
I have very high potential. I have developed my own statistical sports betting formula and theory, have independently studied quantum mechanics, and 2 years ago won the state championship as an individual and team in academic decathlon.
I would like to do something challenging with numbers, but I can also write well and formulate my own thoughts, thank you.
