Sample- 1 ( A family business you know )

Although there are many family businesses that I know. Here I would like to speak about one of the leading businesses in my own country. It is a toy making business with an annual turnover of around 20 million dollars. An Indian based businessman called- RAM founded the business in the early 1970s and started selling handmade wooden toys at fairs. After his death in 1994, his two sons- Jerry and rocky started running this business. Both of them left no stone unturned to expand the business.
Within a decade or so they erected a company called JR Toys by dint of their skills. Later on, even the children of both of them had started working with the company with high-quality products, clever marketing and top-notch customer service. This company has proved to be a successful enterprise. Different activities such as design, purchasing raw material, quality testing, packing and marketing have been assigned to different family members. The two generations work in the business on a daily basis and have done it for many decades.

I believe it is an award-winning Indian business that grew enormously within a very short span of time. The range of toys extends to over 200 items and can be found in outlets including toy shops, gift shops, departmental stores and bookshops. Some online shopping websites also contained advice manufactured by this company. I believe that family members love this business because they are involved in every aspect of the business. From design and the research to delivery of the device throughout the country, all the family members have a part to play as a family they are passionate about their product and equally passionate about their business. So, this is the answer of cue card Describe a family business you know.

Sample- 2 ( A family business agriculture )

I belong to Phagwara and it is the hub of the small-scale industry. There are many spare part industries run by families. My friend Aman's father runs an industry by the name of Akal Industries. I can say that it is a successful business because I have seen it grow to great heights in the past few years. His father, Jatinder Singh and his uncle, Parminder Singh are partners in this business. One brother looks after the sales and the other looks after the manufacturing section.
Four years ago Aman's cousin, Inderpal joined them and now Aman is planning to join them after completing his course in Business Management. This business was started by Aman's grandfather with a handful of workers about 50 years ago but now they have 300 people working for them round the clock and they manufacture and supply auto spare parts to various countries like Germany, France, US and Canada. They have a very good rapport with their workers and whenever they fulfil big orders, they give bonuses to them. Aman tells me that his mother and aunt look after the needs of the workers' families from time to time.

They make them feel part of their family and that is why they have never faced a shortage of labour. Aman tells me that if any worker is absent or not well, his father takes his place and does not let the work suffer. They also give a lot of emphasis on quality and that is why their products are in great demand in Germany and France. Although Aman's family is very rich, they are very humble and magnanimous. His father keeps donating for charity on special occasions. So, this is the successful family business that I know of.

Follow-Ups- Family business cue card ielts fever

1. What challenges and difficulties people face when they try to have a successful small business?
They have to do proper market research and see if there is a demand for their product or service. They also have to see if they will be getting competition from the international sector. For example, a bicycle manufacturer from India may not be able to compete with the cheaper and better-looking bicycles from China. Then there are other formalities like government approvals etc.

2. What should be the governments’ role in how small businesses are run?
A government should promote small businesses by providing subsidies to budding entrepreneurs. This way unemployment will be reduced. It should do a careful and fair evaluation of the business plan of the person and help in all the ways it can. Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Make in India’ Campaign is a step in this direction.
