Lesson 37: Creating Menus for Your Applications

The menu bar is the standard feature of most Windows applications. The main purpose of the menus is for easy navigation and control of an application. Some of the most common menu items are File, Edit, View, Tools, Help and more. Each item on the main menu bar also provides a list of options in the form of a pull-down menu. When you create a Visual Basic 6 program, you need not include as many menu items as a full-fledged Windows application. What you need is to include those menu items that can improve the ease of usage by the user. There are two ways to add menus to your application, using the Visual Basic’s Application Wizard and or the menu editor.

37.1 Adding Menu Bar Using Visual Basic’s Application Wizard

The easiest way to add a menu bar to your application is by using Visual Basic’s Application Wizard. This wizard allows the user to insert fully customized standard Windows menu into his or her application. To start using Visual Basic’s Application Wizard, click on the Application Wizard icon at the Visual Basic new project dialog box, as shown in Figure 37.1 below:

Figure 37.1: New Project Window

When you click on the VB Application wizard, the introduction dialog box will appear, as shown in Figure 37.2. As you are not loading any default setting, just click on the Next button.

Figure 37.2

After clicking the Next button, the interface type dialog box will be displayed, as shown in Figure 37.3. There are three choices of interface available for your project. As we currently not creating a Multiple Document Interface (MDI), we choose Single Document Interface (SDI). You can also type the project name in the textbox below, here I am using MyFirstMenu.

Figure 37.3

Clicking the Next button wiill bring up a list of menus and submenus that you can add them to your application. Check to select a menu item and uncheck to unselect a menu item as shown in Figure 37.4. Let say we choose all the menus and click next, then you will get an interface comprises File, Edit, View and Help menus, as shown in Figure 37.5

Figure 37.4

Figure 37.5

When you click on any menu item, a list of drop-down submenu items will be displayed. For example, if you click on the File menu, the list of submenu items such as New, Open, Save, Save As and more will be displayed, as shown in Figure 37.6

Figure 37.6

Clicking on any of the dropped down menu item will show the code associated with it, and this is where you can modify the code to suit your programming needs. For example, clicking on the item Open will reveal the following code:

Figure 37.7

Now, I will show you how to modify the code in order to open a graphic file and display it in an image box. For this program, you have to insert a Image box into the form. Next add the following lines so that the user can open graphic files of different formats.

Filter = Bitmaps(*.BMP)|*.BMP|Metafiles(*.WMF)|*. WMF|Jpeg Files(*.jpg)|*.jpg|GIF Files(*.gif)|*.gif|Icon Files(*.ico)|*.ico|All Files(*.*)|*.* .

Then, you need to load the image into the Image box with the following code:

Also set the Stretch property of the Image box to true so that the image loaded can resize by itself. Please note that each menu item is a special control, so it has a name too. The name for the menu File in this example is mnuFileOpen.

The Code

When you run the program and click on the File menu and then the submenu Open, the following Open dialog box will be displayed, where you can look for graphic files of various formats to load it into the image box.

Figure 37.8

For example, selecting the jpeg file will allow you to choose the images of jpeg format, as shown in Figure 37.9.

Figure 37.9

Clicking on the particular picture will load it into the image box, as shown in Figure 36.10 below

Figure 37.10

37.2: Adding Menu Bar Using Menu Editor

To start adding menu items to your application, open an existing project or start a new project, then click on Tools in the menu bar of the Visual Basic IDE and select Menu Editor. When you click on the Menu Editor, the Menu Editor dialog will appear. In the Menu Editor dialog. key in the first item File in the caption text box. You can use the ampersand ( ) sign in front of F so that F will be underlined when it appears in the menu, and F will become the hot key to initiate the action under this item by pressing the Alt key and the letter F. After typing File in the Caption text box, move to the name textbox to enter the name for this menu item, you can type in mnuFile here. Now, click the Next button and the menu item File will move into the empty space below, as shown in Figure 37.11:

Figure 37.11

You can then add in other menu items on the menu bar by following the same procedure, as shown in Figure 37.12 below:

Figure 37.12

When you click Ok, the menu items will be shown on the menu bar of the form.

Figure 37.13

Now, you may proceed to add the sub menus. In the Menu Editor, click on the Insert button between File and Exit and then click the right arrow key, and the dotted line will appear. This shows the second level of the menu, or the submenu. Now key in the caption and the name. Repeat the same procedure to add other submenu items. Here, we are adding New, Open, Save, Save As and Exit.

Figure 37.14

Now click the OK button and go back to your form. You can see the dropped down submenus when you click on the item File, as shown.

Figure 37.15

Finally, you can enter the code by clicking on any of the submenu items.





PCI Compliance #usbank, #usbank #card, #bank #card, #bank #card #services, #card #services,

PCI COMPLIANCE

All merchants accepting credit cards must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) before July 2010.

What is PCI-DSS?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a worldwide information security standard mandated by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.

Who makes up the PCI Council?

The council was formed as a collaborative effort between the five major card brands: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. By coming together, standards were created to help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromises. The major card brands have allowed acquirers and processors to enforce compliance through their own means.

Why should I become compliant?

You should become PCI compliant in order to make sure you are taking the proper care to ensure that cardholder data is protected. If a breach were to happen at your location, and if you are not PCI compliant at the time, the card associations may assess a fine against you and you will be liable for all the fraudulent transactions caused by the breach. However, if you are compliant, the fine may be reduced and you may not be responsible for the fraudulent transactions.

How do I become compliant?

As a merchant, you will be responsible to become PCI compliant by PCI regulations. However, as a USBSI merchant, we offer in house PCI assistance to guide you and your business in achieving PCI compliance. Merchants are often advised to complete compliance by going online or by requesting a Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). Through these outlets, USBSI’s dedicated staff will provide guidance and advice to questions you have regarding PCI compliance.

If you have further questions concerning PCI compliance and its requirements, you may contact a USBSI PCI Specialist at 888-525-8558 or visit the PCI Council’s website at http://www.pcisecuritystandards.org

Marketing Communication

Become A Marketing Leader

Students and faculty give you a sneak peek at what you ll learn in the Marketing Communications program at Emerson College from the internship opportunities all over Boston to real-life experience in the classroom. Emerson keeps students current with today s industry trends.

How does a person’s cultural background influence his/her consumer behavior? Why does someone choose one brand of flavored water over another? What are the underlying elements of a successful product launch?

These are the kinds of questions you’ll be exploring—and answering—as a student in Emerson’s Department of Marketing Communication. Recently named #5 on the list of top 10 U.S. colleges to get a marketing degree, Emerson will have you working alongside faculty members who are also seasoned marketers. You’ll quickly learn how to apply sophisticated marketing principles in a variety of real-world contexts—from the arts, sports, and entertainment industries to consumer product companies and nonprofits.

Whether your interests are in strategic marketing, marketing communications, or entrepreneurship, Emerson’s Department of Marketing Communication offers you a curriculum uniquely designed to prepare you as a future marketing leader.





Benchmark Passages #reading #program, #leveled #reading, #leveled #books, #lesson #plans, #student #worksheets,

#

Digital Running Records on Raz-Plus

With our Online Running Record tool, Raz-Plus or Raz-Kids members can:

  • Assign and listen to recordings of Benchmark Passages and Books.
  • Score recordings using an online running record tool.

BENCHMARK PASSAGES & RUNNING RECORDS

Find students’ instructional levels by assessing their reading skills with developmentally appropriate texts while recording reading behavior. Benchmark Passages are short text selections that are one part of a three-part process to help place students at their instructional levels for leveled reading sessions and to assess their readiness to progress to the next level.

Why Benchmark Passages

Benchmark Passages assess comprehension and reward students’ progress from level to level. They are one part of a three-part process that provides a more complete assessment of reading behavior and comprehension than any of the parts independently.

  • Each level has 2 fiction and 2 nonfiction passages.
  • Each level has at least 1 fiction-nonfiction passage pair on the same topic.
  • Each passage uses a level-appropriate percentage of words from leveled books at that reading level.
    • aa-E = 100%
    • F-J = 95% + 5% new words
    • K-Z = 90% + 10% new words
  • The text of the entire passage is used in the Running Record.
  • Most are one page long, but upper level passages can be two pages.
  • ALL are available on Raz-Plus .

How to Use Benchmark Passages

  1. Give a student a Benchmark Passage he or she has never seen before to read aloud. If you prefer to use familiar text, use the fiction-nonfiction topic pair at each level. Use one passage from the pair to support a student’s understanding of the topic before assessing with the other passage.
  2. Record the student’s reading behavior using the passage’s Running Record form.
  3. If a student scores 90 percent, assess the student’s comprehension using a Quick Check from Level A-Z and Retelling Rubrics .
  4. If a student scores from 90%-94% percent on the running record and answers comprehension questions at 80%-100%, he or she is at an instructional level. (For more details, see About Running Records ).
  5. Use Benchmark WOWzers to reward students’ progress from level to level.

Features and Chart

  • 2 7 words per line; 4.5 words average
  • 1 line per page
  • 30 55 words total
  • Complete sentences
  • Repetition of high-frequency words

Clients Love the Convenience, Speed, and Accuracy of
Internet Proofreading from BusinessProofreading.com

Internet Proofreading Is Convenient

In this “I need it yesterday” world, you’re sure to agree with my clients that Internet proofreading is a blessing. The convenience of being able to simply email a message or attachment and have it returned to you polished and ready to impress is an absolute necessity. With Internet proofreading, all your copyediting can be handled quickly and professionally.

“In the advertising/copywriting business, I always hear from customers who are in a hurry for copyediting. It’s such a blessing to know that BusinessProofreading.com is available to help me out in a pinch. The convenience factor of being able to email or fax a project to Cathy and have it returned in just a short while is a real lifesaver!”

Internet Proofreading Is Fast

I constantly hear my clients’ kind words about quick turnaround. Internet proofreading, in and of itself, speeds up the process. And I always strive to meet your deadlines even if you have a rush job.

“Cathy Kessler has proven time and again to be a valuable asset in enhancing the effectiveness of many of my different types of written communications. I know that when I send something to Cathy for copyediting, not only will it be returned to me in a prompt manner, but also the document will be grammatically correct. Cathy’s helpful insights in the area of business proofreading have enabled me to clearly state what I want the reader to know, while doing it in a very straightforward, professional manner. I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone who understands the value of the well-edited written word.”

Internet Proofreading Is Accurate

Most of my clients rave about the accuracy of Internet proofreading. Because the copyediting is done in digital format, the results are more reliable than marking the changes on paper and then having to make adjustments on your document later. If you’d like to see the changes I’ve made while copyediting, just ask, and I’ll gladly mark them for you.

“It’s really hard to find your own mistakes, especially when you know how text/copy should read. I always run all my projects past Cathy’s meticulous eyes before releasing a project to press or production. On more than one occasion, she has found typos or grammatical errors that would have cost me money and aggravation to reprint, not to mention client dissatisfaction as a result, I’ve never had to reprint a project. I would highly recommend Cathy’s copyediting and proofreading services to anyone who writes or uses text/copy of any kind. She’s the best!!”

    What Dentists Are Saying

    Dr. Jan Ormsby
    Ithaca, NY

    When I first came to work with Jim, I was producing approximately $48,000 per month. At the end of the first year, I was producing 114% more than when I started. The value of new patients during that first year also doubled.

    When I first started, I had about 8-10 new patients a month. I was practicing alone in my home, so I had a very small practice. I knew I really had to grow the practice quickly because I moved into a new facility. With the different approaches the The Wealthy Dentist has given me, I was able to move the number of new patients up to 41 a month.

    Dr. Victor Sobrepena
    Foster City, CA

    The major benefit that I have received from having been a member of the The Wealthy Dentist has been my transition from managed care insurance plans to fee-for-service patients.

    Probably the biggest key that I ve seen that has allowed me to progress to where I am now has been really implementing a lot of the systems that I ve learned.

    You know: making sure I have a complete team that s working for a common goal. In addition to that, I m really implementing a lot of the marketing strategies that I found were the most effective for me.

    Especially when I first started, I tried a lot of different marketing techniques, and I wasn t sure whether they were going to work or not. With Jim and his team of dental management consultants, I ve really been able to copy genius instead of creating mediocrity.

    The Dying Process

    Updated December 15, 2014

    The dying process is a period of time when the body begins to shut down and prepare for death. It s an important period of time for the dying person and their loved ones during which they can express their feelings and show their love. It s a time of preparation for the dying person and their loved ones — preparing for inevitable loss.

    The actual process may be very quick or happen gradually. Recognizing the signs early and feeling confident in the care you provide can ensure this is a special time.

    Photo Photodisc/Getty Images The dying process usually begins much sooner than most people realize. Many people will mistake signs of dying for simple confusion or side effects of medication. Other signs of the dying process, like a decreased need for food and fluids, might be scary unless one really understands what s going on.

    Recognizing early that the dying process has begun can help you prepare for what s ahead.

    Photo Photodisc/Getty Images Perhaps the ultimate act of love is caring for a loved one while they are dying. It can be a beautiful experience, providing the opportunity to express your love when they need it the most. The key is to feel confident in the care you are giving.

    Here are some practical tips for caring for your loved one during thy dying process.

    Illustration ADAM

    I once heard a woman describe waiting for her husband to die as waiting for a tsunami to hit. She knew the loss would be great and she would grieve terribly once he died. What she didn t realize is that the grieving had already begun.

    Anticipatory grief begins before the actual loss and is an important time of preparation.

    Photo Stockbyte/Getty Images There are a number of things we think we should say to a dying loved one and even more things we think we shouldn t say. Here are some common beliefs, and misbeliefs, about talking to a dying person.

    Photo Andersen Ross/Getty Images

    Many people find it helpful to plan the funeral well before the actual death occurs. Advance planning offers time and can often be done without extreme emotions. If the funeral planning is left to be done after death occurs, family members are often wrought with grief and find it difficult to think about the small details of the service.

    Here are some tips to help you plan a funeral, whether done in advance or after a death.

    Consulting

    Weatherbee s executive and consulting teams assist hospices with acquisitional and organic growth, rightsizing and reorganizing, strategies for successful management and performance, qui tam and other investigations, and a host of compliance and improvement-oriented endeavors.

    Contact us to explore how Weatherbee can help your hospice.

    ADRs Appeals

    Weatherbee assists hospices with ADR submissions, appeals, and education to identify and mitigate risk exposure.

    Compliance

    Weatherbee works with hospices that have been targeted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) regarding their high percentage of long stay and/or facility-based patients; those in receipt of probe edits from Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs); and, those hospices under the review of a Zone Program Integrity Contractor (ZPIC), Recovery Auditor (RA), and other organizations investigating payment-related issues.

    Due Diligence

    When seeking to acquire an established hospice program, conducting pre- and post-acquisition clinical due diligence is a crucial step in evaluating the overall feasibility and advisability of the acquisition as well as its subsequent success.

    Independent Review

    Weatherbee Resources can serve as your Independent Review Organization (IRO) for the purpose of reviewing all the data elements that substantiate your hospice s compliance with the Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) and evaluating the eligibility of patients to elect the Medicare/Medicaid Hospice Benefit.

    Interim Management

    Weatherbee provides interim management and coaching to assist hospices through periods of transition, filling vacant leadership positions, and providing coaching to new leaders ascending to senior positions in your organization.

    Investigations/Audits

    Any hospice can be selected for an investigation or audit. An investigation of any kind is disruptive to the organization, may damage your reputation in the community and could seriously threaten the financial viability of the program.

    Clinical Record Audits

    How good is your team s documentation? Do you have systems and processes in place to give you confidence that every bill submitted will result in payment?

    Periodic external reviews of your documentation can identify potential issues before they become major problems.

    Physician Consults

    Weatherbee offers advisory services for hospice Medical Directors and physicians, provided by well-qualified physician experts.

    Mock Survey

    The Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act (IMPACT) Act requires that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) ensure that each Medicare-certified hospice agency undergo a survey at least once every 36 months for the next 10 years. This requirement became effective in April 2015; however, many hospices have gone 5 or more years since their last survey and are uncertain what the outcome will be for their next CMS/State survey.

    Survival Skills

    The list of compliance and fiscal challenges facing hospices is beyond daunting. Hospices that had previously experienced a growing census and healthy bottom line are, at best, watching their operating margins shrink.

    Weatherbee s newest consulting services, offered in conjunction with the kb group . focus on helping to grow your organization and increase your bottom line.

    Complaints

    A critical component of a hospice s corporate compliance program is a mechanism for staff to report potential fraud and abuse. An effective reporting mechanism allows staff to raise concerns without fear of retaliation.

    How to Start a Business

    Opening a Hospice Services Business

    What are the steps required to open a hospice services business? We cover everything you need to think about before starting a hospice services business.

    Thinking about opening a hospice services business? We tell you what you need to know to get started.

    Hospice and palliative care providers ease the end of life process for patients and families. Once an underserved segment of the healthcare industry, more and more hospice service businesses are arising to keep pace with the aging U.S. population.

    Motivation is an important factor in the success of a hospice services business startup. Hospice providers are true professionals whose dedication to patient care far outweighs their motivation for profit. Hospice services can be profitable, but your primary concern must always be the quality of care that is being provided to your patients.

    Hospice service can be provided in either a residential or visiting hospice setting. For most startups, in-house hospice care is preferable to a residential care environment because it eliminates the capital and licensing requirements associated with a first-rate facility.

    Hospice workers are tasked with providing a broad range of services to their clients. Counseling and advisory services are typical job functions, but hospice providers may also be tasked with coordinating the services of medical professionals and religious leaders for pain management, medical care, and spiritual guidance.

    The most successful hospice care providers are brilliant networkers who have existing relationships within the medical and religious communities Although your network will expand as your hospice service grows, it’s beneficial to be familiar with the major players in your community before you launch your business.

    Startup owners should also realize that hospice care is strictly regulated. Staff licensing and certifications are mandatory, so you will need to research applicable state and federal regulations. For more information about the requirements for nursery and caregivers, contact the National Board for Certification of Hospice & Palliative Care Nurses.

    How to Draft a Hospice Services Company Business Plan

    We know – writing a business plan can be a daunting task for a new entrepreneur.

    But here’s the good news: With a few tips, any entrepreneur can create a successful plan for their business. In its simplest form, a business plan is a document that describes your company’s goals and your strategy for achieving them.

    Once your business plan is in place, you can use it for a variety of funding and planning functions.

    If you still aren’t sure where to begin, consider taking a look at several sample business plans to get the creative juices flowing.

    Look Over the Competition

    Before you open a hospice services business in your town, it’s a smart move to find out how you will fit in the competitive landscape. We’ve provided the link below to help you generate a list of competitors in your area. Just enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of hospice services businesses in your community.

    How tough is the competition in the market you are considering? If the competition is too tough, you may need to think about starting the business in a different area or even start a completely different business instead.

    Studying the Market

    If you want to open a hospice services business the next step is to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It’s very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What’s in it for them?

    On the other hand, an individual who has a hospice services business outside of your community can be a great learning resource for you, provided that you won’t be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

    What’s the best way to find an entrepreneur who is running a hospice services business in another community?

    It’s easy. Here’s a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.

    How to Buy a Hospice Services Business

    Many experts advise against starting a hospice services business if you can buy an established operation. But as a hospice services business buyer, you’ll quickly discover that a business purchase isn’t completely hassle-free.

    Buying a business can be just as complex as starting one. For most prospective business buyers, the first step is to contact a business broker .

    Business brokers specialize in helping buyers locate profitable hospice services business opportunities. They are also adept at guiding you through the purchase process so you can avoid the mistakes that are commonly made by first-time hospice services business owners.

    Don’t Rule Out Franchising

    The probabilities on your making a success of your new business are higher if you opt for franchising rather than going it alone.

    Prior to starting a hospice services business, it’s worthwhile to check out whether franchise opportunities in your space might make sense for you.

    The link below gives you access to our franchise directory so you can see if there’s a franchise opportunity for you. You might even find something that points you in a completely different direction.

    End of Life Issues

    Featured Article:
    Look at What is Coming

    In 2011 Mariette Buntjens was a patient suffering from metastatic cancer at a Roman Catholic nursing home in Diest, Belgium. Buntjens requested euthanasia but the nursing home refused on obvious religious grounds. Her family brought her home where she said her good-byes and she was then given a lethal cocktail of drugs to end her life. In January of this year her daughter filed a lawsuit against the nursing home for failing to permit the killing at the facility.

    Earlier this month a judgment was reached. The nursing home was ordered to pay 1,000 euros (about $1,100) to each of the three children and 3,000 euros as a fine for failing to permit the killing.

    Since the earliest efforts to legalize euthanasia in America we have expressed concern that Christians will be forced to participate in these killings. Advocates for the legalization of assisted suicide have dismissed those concerns as exaggerations. Really?

    Take a look just in America at what has been happening with the binding of religious consciences for pharmacists and some forms of birth control or businesses and medical professionals and the performance of abortions, and participation in gay marriages.

    Despite the surface logic for autonomy we must realize that the tentacles that permit sin run deep and are pervasive. It is simplistic to think a my body, my choice mentality stops there.

    Society is in full rebellion against the Biblical truth that some things are wrong, or in religious parlance, sin. In a post-modern society nobody likes to talk about right and wrong but muting the reality does not change the reality. Surrendering to some sin surrenders to sin s ultimate agenda total rebellion against God. It is a slippery slope, indeed.

    How to Start a Business

    Opening a Hospice Services Business

    What are the steps required to open a hospice services business? We cover everything you need to think about before starting a hospice services business.

    Thinking about opening a hospice services business? We tell you what you need to know to get started.

    Hospice and palliative care providers ease the end of life process for patients and families. Once an underserved segment of the healthcare industry, more and more hospice service businesses are arising to keep pace with the aging U.S. population.

    Motivation is an important factor in the success of a hospice services business startup. Hospice providers are true professionals whose dedication to patient care far outweighs their motivation for profit. Hospice services can be profitable, but your primary concern must always be the quality of care that is being provided to your patients.

    Hospice service can be provided in either a residential or visiting hospice setting. For most startups, in-house hospice care is preferable to a residential care environment because it eliminates the capital and licensing requirements associated with a first-rate facility.

    Hospice workers are tasked with providing a broad range of services to their clients. Counseling and advisory services are typical job functions, but hospice providers may also be tasked with coordinating the services of medical professionals and religious leaders for pain management, medical care, and spiritual guidance.

    The most successful hospice care providers are brilliant networkers who have existing relationships within the medical and religious communities Although your network will expand as your hospice service grows, it’s beneficial to be familiar with the major players in your community before you launch your business.

    Startup owners should also realize that hospice care is strictly regulated. Staff licensing and certifications are mandatory, so you will need to research applicable state and federal regulations. For more information about the requirements for nursery and caregivers, contact the National Board for Certification of Hospice & Palliative Care Nurses.

    How to Draft a Hospice Services Company Business Plan

    We know – writing a business plan can be a daunting task for a new entrepreneur.

    But here’s the good news: With a few tips, any entrepreneur can create a successful plan for their business. In its simplest form, a business plan is a document that describes your company’s goals and your strategy for achieving them.

    Once your business plan is in place, you can use it for a variety of funding and planning functions.

    If you still aren’t sure where to begin, consider taking a look at several sample business plans to get the creative juices flowing.

    Look Over the Competition

    Before you open a hospice services business in your town, it’s a smart move to find out how you will fit in the competitive landscape. We’ve provided the link below to help you generate a list of competitors in your area. Just enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of hospice services businesses in your community.

    How tough is the competition in the market you are considering? If the competition is too tough, you may need to think about starting the business in a different area or even start a completely different business instead.

    Studying the Market

    If you want to open a hospice services business the next step is to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It’s very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What’s in it for them?

    On the other hand, an individual who has a hospice services business outside of your community can be a great learning resource for you, provided that you won’t be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

    What’s the best way to find an entrepreneur who is running a hospice services business in another community?

    It’s easy. Here’s a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.

    How to Buy a Hospice Services Business

    Many experts advise against starting a hospice services business if you can buy an established operation. But as a hospice services business buyer, you’ll quickly discover that a business purchase isn’t completely hassle-free.

    Buying a business can be just as complex as starting one. For most prospective business buyers, the first step is to contact a business broker .

    Business brokers specialize in helping buyers locate profitable hospice services business opportunities. They are also adept at guiding you through the purchase process so you can avoid the mistakes that are commonly made by first-time hospice services business owners.

    Don’t Rule Out Franchising

    The probabilities on your making a success of your new business are higher if you opt for franchising rather than going it alone.

    Prior to starting a hospice services business, it’s worthwhile to check out whether franchise opportunities in your space might make sense for you.

    The link below gives you access to our franchise directory so you can see if there’s a franchise opportunity for you. You might even find something that points you in a completely different direction.
