4 Kinds of business that are not yet in Russia in 2021
The specifics of doing business in Russia in 2021, as before, were associated with certain nuances and subtleties. This also applies to mental characteristics, and the established traditions of the implementation of business processes, and a huge number of difficulties caused by the sluggishness of the domestic bureaucracy, and the imperfection of fiscal policy, excessive control from the inspection bodies.
At the same time, small business in Europe, America and other foreign countries is developing rapidly, offering more and more new ideas, techniques and interesting solutions!
It just so happened that the most popular and profitable type of business in Russia is associated either with the sale of resources, minerals and natural resources, or with the usual speculation, when goods are purchased as cheaply as possible and sold as expensive as possible.
Even the very process of creating a business structure in Russia is sometimes associated with hardly insurmountable difficulties! That is why not every business idea in Russia can be realized without extreme exertion of efforts, investment of a huge amount of resources, time and effort! Despite the fact that the business itself may turn out to be unprofitable! As great as the idea is!
Doing business in Russia and abroad: fundamental differences
Things are quite different in foreign countries, whose economies are considered the most developed. Practice shows that, in the same Europe, Asia or America, a new look at the seemingly traditional type of running one's own business is the most important component of the country's entire economic policy.
This is due, among other things, to the fact that the ideas themselves arise due to centuries-old traditions that have evolved over a long period of time:
- freedom of entrepreneurship, which exists in America, Europe and some Asian countries from XIIV to the current 2021, the cultivation of small and medium-sized businesses;
- wide scope implementation of the most daring, interesting ideas and novelties related to both trade and the field of services, or production.
If in Russia the most popular and profitable types of business are supplies for the export of hydrocarbons, natural resources, maintenance of a metal warehouse or, at worst, opening a grocery store, then business in Europe covers almost the entire service sector and most areas of production ... There are more than enough new ideas for starting your own business in foreign countries.
The crisis is a crisis, but business-to-business!
The business climate in Russia leaves much to be desired. Opening a small business, and even with minimal investment in the jurisdiction of our country, is extremely difficult and often simply dangerous for health and even one's own freedom.
This is due to the opacity of many defining laws and procedures, the actual absence of the principle of sacredness, inviolability of private property, the presence of nepotism and corruption in society as a whole. In this regard, it is not surprising that Russia does not have its own Zuckerbergs and Masks, but there are oligarchs who control raw materials flows.
However, in such an unfriendly environment as ours, it is not even a matter of personalities, but of the general atmosphere of fear that is invisibly in the air. Indeed, will you be up to innovations if some children of prosecutors are engaged in raiding and, using the connections of their "patrons", squeeze out everything that can only bring money. You create a business here, how can you ... (and most importantly, you will keep what you have created ...).
The topic of this article is sad, but it is necessary to talk about it, since this is the only way to overcome this crisis. So, business ideas that are not in Russia in 2021 (and we can say definitely - will not be). Let's compose our TOP-4.
Many citizens who have lived or even just visited the countries of Southeast Asia have noticed thousands of Go Jack couriers scurrying along the roads on bikes. This brand is gradually becoming no less recognizable than, for example, the same Uber. But what is its uniqueness? It's all about multitasking couriers. For example, domestic food delivery services (yellow or green) are primarily specialized. The client cannot order a courier so that, for example, one:
- put money on his cell phone;
- bought a certain required item at a hardware store;
- brought him cash from an ATM; <
- and on the way back I drove some other things to the other end of the city.
And so that all this can be paid by bank transfer (through an account), so that everything is done without loss of responsibility, and there is also an effective dispatch support service. Couriers of domestic services perform individual operations (such as buying food in a store at the request of a client), but these functions are paid for non-systematically and, rather, are a way of private earnings for the couriers themselves.
But what is the reason for such an absent market? After all, the idea is good, relevant, and given the fact that courier services already exist, in order to start such a new business (that is, to simply diversify the tasks of couriers), minimal investment will be required.
It's all about mentality. According to Western experts, there are catastrophically few honest people in Russia. In general, throughout the post-Soviet space. Most behave like predators with varying degrees of cynicism: someone is trying to steal like a wolf - they grabbed it and ran away, and then we'll figure out what kind of prey. Others set up a systemic robbery, "plucking" a little from each topic and trying to hide the ends in endless proceedings. And some, in general, on the same courier theme for the delivery of food, create a drug distribution system.
Of course, there are dishonest people in every nation, in all countries. However, it is in Russia that there are a lot of them. Sociologists reasonably believe that this is the legacy of the monstrous human losses of the USSR for the entire 20th century - after all, the best, who formed the ethical and moral backbone of the nation, died in wars and during unprecedented repressions. As a result, "outrageous" behavior in society begins to prevail.
This was already a couple of thousand years ago - in the four hundredth years of our era in ancient Rome, where it was the moral degradation of society that caused the collapse of the great empire. And strange as it may seem, it is precisely the absence of moral and ethical taboos on theft and deception among too many Russian citizens that does not allow the development of a broadly specialized courier service in our country. And there is no doubt that in 2021 an analogue of "Go Jack" (at least with an approximate turnover and a similar range of services) will not appear in Russia.
Everyone who wants to get rid of the status of an employee and increase income through entrepreneurial activities in the field of small business is asked a number of questions. Where to find sources of business ideas, what type of activity to choose, what is new in America and Europe, what difficulties can you face when implementing foreign innovations in Russia? Is it better to buy a franchise or start your own business? Within the framework of this article, we will give answers to them.
Features of the culture of doing business abroad and in Russia
In European countries, small business is a direct source of economic growth. The opening of a business in this segment is facilitated by preferential tax legislation, economic stability, and a high legal culture.
An aspiring American entrepreneur is also in unique conditions, receiving all-round government support, the main feature of which is a wide range of consultations and free information services.
The situation is somewhat different in Russia. Here the lack of public services will have to be compensated for by our own activity. Another problem of Russian small business is the lack of a legal framework.
For information: the share of small business in the GDP of the EU countries is 70%, the USA - 40%, Russia - 23.6%.
Profitable areas of business in Russia (small business segment)
New American Small Business Ideas
Despite the fact that the most popular business in America is car service, restaurant services, medical and legal services, house renovation and renovation, Internet sales, Americans are constantly looking for new and extraordinary solutions for a successful start of business. You can easily verify this by opening any authentic American website of business ideas. Among the latest interesting innovations:
- Remote viewing of matches with the effect of being present in the virtual stadium. At the Stanford Graduate School of Business competition, the startup won $ 50,000.
Ideas which do not exist in Russia yet
Some simply won't be able to work for themselves, because they entertain themselves with illusions, such as - you can work as much as you want. But this is true, only partially, in the beginning, if you do not work the whole day, you simply will not reach the turnover you need, since it takes a lot of time to at least automate production a little. Even after partial automation, you will need to work 8-10 hours a day at least to get a stable income, not a penny.
If it doesn't scare you, then you can safely.
What new business ideas have emerged in Russia from Europe and the USA (America)?
There is a quite reasonable justification for this - a lot of competition in a certain type of activity and the fear of losing the invested funds. Abroad - both in Europe and America - for many residents, small business is not only the main source of daily income, but also their way of life.
The only way out of lack of money is to come up with new ideas and look for creative ways to implement them, this is especially true in settlements located far from the capital's life. may be the craziest at first glance, but this is the secret of the success of many Americans and Europeans, who managed to amass good capital, doing something that no one else has thought of.
Of course, in a small business sooner or later there will still be competitors who "shamelessly" borrow the brainchild of the developer, and the business will cease to bring sufficient profit.
Business ideas of the year from the USA which are not available in Russia
The fact is that not all business ideas from the USA can show high efficiency in Russia. American culture is composed of the traditions of different peoples.
Thanks to this, in the United States, you can open a business associated with a variety of areas of human activity.
But there are some models that can only work overseas. They are unacceptable in our country.
Russia's population is aging faster than the world average | SOUTH RUSSIA
“Old age” and “age” are not synonyms
Ada Gorbacheva Columnist for Nezavisimaya Gazeta
Life expectancy in Russia is growing. Now, on average, it is 72.5 years. And by 2024, the task has been set to increase it to 78 years. However, those who set such a task did not explain how to achieve such an increase. Well, until 2024 is another five years, something will happen in that time.
Against the backdrop of such optimistic expectations as a cold shower, the results of a study published in the Lancet magazine: the population of Russia is aging faster than the average in the world - the typical set of diseases typical for old age, residents of our country usually already have by the age of 59. At the beginning of population aging, the Russian Federation ranks 160th among 192 countries studied by the authors of the study.
An international team of scientists led by Angela Chang of the University of Washington's Institute for Health Measurement and Evaluation carried out the work on the aging of the world's population. Aging was assessed depending on health status.
The list includes 92 diseases that are traditionally associated with old age: 13 diseases of the cardiovascular system (stroke, atrial fibrillation, endocarditis, etc.
), 35 types of oncological diseases, Parkinson's disease, hearing impairment, cataracts and glaucoma, Alzheimer's disease, injuries sustained when falling while walking.
The study showed that these diseases develop in people from different countries at different ages, sometimes the difference is more than 30 years.
It was assessed how burdensome the already emerging diseases are for residents of different countries, as well as the change in this indicator over time (life expectancy and frequency of disability were taken into account).
