Retin A Prescription Price, Ask any small business or home-based business what would really help their business and they are most likely to reply that they need more publicity in order to achieve more sales, especially in these recessionary times.
It would therefore seem quite straightforward to many small businesses that the millions of pounds currently available through various grants from the RDA and the European Union should be focused on providing more publicity for them so they can achieve these sales. As their businesses do better, they are able to spend more money locally on goods and services providing further regeneration to their local community.
Yet the reality is that consultants rather than home-based businesses are more likely to be the beneficiaries of these extremely large sums of money from the European Union, our own Government in Whitehall or the RDA.
Sadly, employing consultants has great advantages for local government officers. Retin A Prescription Price ebay, If properly qualified consultants are given a contract to recommend how money is spent and it does little to regenerate the local economy, the local government officers can always turn around and say 'Not me guv, it was the consultants that recommended this course of action and we pursued it in good faith'!
Also, the local government officer responsible for regeneration within a local authority might be a single individual without the manpower resources to implement a detailed plan involving millions of pounds of grant expenditure. Hiring consultants to implement the plan solves the manpower problem.
Finding the small businesses that should benefit from regeneration grants is likely to be time-consuming and difficult. Small businesses and home-based businesses, 100mg Retin A Prescription Price, which often make up the greater part of rural economies, can be hidden away and difficult to find. They are also likely to be numerous, Retin A Prescription Price. It was suggested to me recently that home-based businesses and small businesses could involve more than ten percent of the local rural population which could obviously involve thousands of individuals.
In addition to being difficult to find, small businesses and home-based businesses are involved in a very wide range of activities and supplying many different kinds of services and products to many different kinds of markets. 500mg Retin A Prescription Price, They may provide services or products as a business to other businesses or as a business to consumers. They include artists, poets, writers,potters, software developers, 200mg Retin A Prescription Price, web site owners, dog walkers, baby sitters, gardeners, Retin A Prescription Price canada, cleaners, cooks - the list goes on and seems almost endless.
Yet each of these home based or small businesses needs publicity for its survival and if its owners are hard up and in need or regeneration, assuming there is a market for their products or services, the no-brainer is that they are not getting enough publicity or customers.
Handing the money over to a firm of consultants may also be perceived to be more palatable than simply handing public money to the general public.
All of which tends to make handing regeneration money over to consultants seem a jolly good idea to hard pressed local government officials. First they issue a contract to the consultants to develop a plan and then they instruct the same or different consultants to execute the plan. The solutions are nicely at arms length, 750mg Retin A Prescription Price, tidy and without repercussions.
And what better plan could there be than to give advice to the small and home-based businesses. This may be particularly attractive to consultants because giving advice is what consultants do and, if the words 'education' and 'training' are added into the formula, the plan starts ticking boxes and getting through committees.
Eventually, Retin A Prescription Price craiglist, the consultants find themselves face to face with the small businesses, analyse their small or home-based enterprises and recommend that they need more publicity - which they knew already but could not afford. The small business asks if this can come out of the government regeneration funds and they are told it is not available for these purposes.
So what is the self-employed gardener, plumber, electrician, baby-sitter or whatever going to think about the way the local government officers are spending their, Retin A Prescription Price us, the tax-payers, money?
Perhaps they will shrug their shoulders in a resigned sort of way and mutter something about posh consultants in expensive cars.
Perhaps, as the local locksmith comes around with the bailiffs to change the locks on their repossessed home, they will feel a personal sense of failure.
Perhaps they will think that if only a small part of their local authorities regeneration grant money had been spent on giving their business more publicity, 150mg Retin A Prescription Price, they wouldn't be trudging down the road with their wife and children and heading for bed and breakfast accommodation for the homeless.
It may not be easy to identify all the home-based businesses and small businesses in a rural area and give them free publicity but it is the best way for Government regeneration grants to be used to build strong successful local communities and, in these recessionary times, limit the total sum of human misery. But, since it is not an easy policy for local authorities to implement, if you are a small home-based business, 40mg Retin A Prescription Price, I wouldn't hold your breath.
Bye for now
