Recently i had discussion with my friend-he’s a good businessman, with good entrepreneurial instinct- about opening business venture in Indonesia. When i mentioned Warnet, he quickly rebuked my idea saying that he already had a discussion and calculation, which concluded that the particular business idea is having very small ROI with a huge TCO. Unfortunately, that time i couldn’t make my argument since i never actually research the ROI and TCO of that business model.

- revamping the building
- buying furnitures
- initial advertising.
Operational costs cover the costs to run day to day business. These costs are:
Hmm.. while i was pondering about the idea, i went to Wikipedia, realizing that i have so many things to read about corporate finance
I wish i can just download them into my brain like Neo did 🙂
