ALDERMORE, Britain’s first private equity-backed bank, expects to turn a profit this year, less than 18 months after it began lending to small businesses and entrepreneurs.

look at the competition, and see if you can come up with a novel or innovative aspect of recruiting that will make your services different from existing firms. If you can not come up with several answers, you really should revisit your decision to open this business. Otherwise, you would be a "me too" shop. That is probably not going to allow you to succeed as much as you probably wish. In other words, do as much homework upfront; not only in what I mention above, but in all the other fundamental issues such as: will you specialize in a given sector or industry? will you position your agency in a particular manner? will you try ...
Why do companies give you mail in rebates instead of just giving ...
My guess is that they are betting that most people won't take the time and effort to mail in a rebate, thus saving lots of money for the company. For example, X Brand Wiper Blades is offering a $10 rebate when you buy a pair of blades. You buy them for $30 at the store, mail in the rebate, and then receive your $10 check in a couple months.
