Want to know how to boost your fertility and improve your chances of getting pregnant fast? According to the experts at, there are many things that couples can do to help their own fertility without having to see a fertility specialist. For example, finding out when exactly you are ovulating is probably one of the most important things about getting pregnant. This allows you to plan for sex so you are having sex during the fertile times and will greatly improve your chances of getting pregnant. 

Another thing you can do to improve your chances of getting pregnant is to cut out negative habits, such as drug use, smoking or drinking alcohol. Make sure to get enough sleep and reduce your stress levels. Weight, diet and exercise are all also closely related to fertility. Men and women who are overweight usually have reduced fertility levels, and eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise are very important to fertility as well. Keep these things in mind when you are trying to get pregnant. 

Healthy living is really important especially if you want to get pregnant and women should be aware of her personal health and fertility to conceive easily.

Choosing Your Career

>> Saturday, November 15, 2014

Choosing career need not be too hard if you focus not just on your skills and intelligence but on your passion as well. Many students choose a college course depending on the demands of job employment but others follow the desires of their heart. It’s both acceptable but you should also weigh things before deciding what career to take. For my kids I always tell them to think of what they want to be when they work and with that they can perceive what possible courses would fit not just their desires but their capabilities as well. 

My younger daughter who loves music and plays various musical instruments asked me if she could take up music. I told her to think it over as she can study music anytime she wants even after she has finished a college course that would ensure her of work stability in the future. I advised her to think deeper of her goals and dreams and she can take up both if she desires. She’s just very interested and fascinated with music that her attention is focused on having as many instruments as she wants like the acoustic di box at guitar center, new piano or any instrument that fancies her young mind. 

Well I’m proud that like my grandfather, uncle and brother she inherited our ancestors’ talent in music and that she can use it in our church. I just hope that her fondness with music continues until she has grown up to be a grown up lady. Her dreams of having a degree in business or engineering will go well with her love for music. It will not in any way complicate with her dreams.


Choosing a Career and Reaching Our Goals

>> Monday, October 20, 2014

We all have dreams in life and whether we reached it or is still trying to meet our goals it doesn’t matter as long as we’re determined and focused. When I was in college I didn’t followed my heart in choosing my career instead I used some practicality. I’ve chosen a career in computer field because at that time you are assured to easily land a good job when you finished a computer course. True to what I’ve been taught it wasn’t hard for me to find a job because of my finished degree. 

Well we all have our calling and destiny but we can create our own good future when we set our mind to the things we want to achieve. Success is not far from people who strive to do their best and give their utmost performance in every endeavor they take. It’s the same in learning and playing music because when you aim to be a good musician and own a quality musical instrument like epiphone black beauty. If you put your mind into every goal you want to reach you can be the best of what you want to be.

I’ve been counting the days to the longest holiday of the year and now it’s just more than two months and we’re off to our holiday.

For some companies they celebrate Christmas parties with themed costumes like the one we had in my previous employer. We were asked to have a theme of our own and I dressed up as a Cowgirl. It’s actually an easy one as I already have some cowgirl tops and I just bought a hat and a brown leather shoes to go with it. 

It’s fun and we’re all satisfied with our own costumes like Mrs. Smith, Korean Mom, Snow White and some anime characters. Other companies requires star wars, retro, ballroom, various decades like 70s, 80s and many others. It doesn’t matter whatever costumes you choose to dress as long as you’re happy doing it and your effort to do your best is what counts most. I was thinking now what will be our company’s theme this year if ever there will be one. It will be fun to have one like having those conservative Tidebuy classic Lolita dress for a change. I’ve seen some online and I find it elegant and very classic as well. 

Well it will always be fun if there’s a theme but if there’s none it’s not a bad news as we can always go to a party with our chosen dress or outfit.

Working Hard for that Beautiful Smile

>> Monday, September 29, 2014

A beautiful smile creates a happy environment and every people would be delighted to meet a person with this kind of smile. But what really makes it? Well it takes great care and proper treatment to achieve a healthy and beautiful set of teeth as well which prompts the beautiful smile I’m talking to. That’s just for our personal care but for general upkeep and maintenance we should look for a good dentist like Powell Family Dentist  to provide compassionate care and overall dental services to ensure a good maintenance of our oral health. 

This is very possible with Bright Smile Dental who can make your dream of having beautiful smile come true with their competitive services delivered to their patients. They can help you improve your oral health with such services like orthodontics, veneers, implants, crowns, whitening, smile rejuvenation, braces and invisalign. They treat their patients like their family thus giving the best services with care and concern. Giving extra consideration to their patient’s lifestyle and personal history is one of their goals. 

With this objective they plan their approach in treating them with advanced procedures, utmost skill and delivering it all with the state of the art equipment bringing about all we need for a great oral health and quality dental services. Getting the right cosmetic dentist will make a lot of difference to your life and like me we can always dream of flashing that beautiful smile with our good looking teeth. 

My kids are lucky to have not just healthy and even teeth but beautiful as well. I always tell them that they should take good care and maintain their oral health religiously because it would define the condition of their teeth when they grow old. All of them have permanent teeth now except for the wisdom tooth so I regularly monitor their daily habit of cleaning teeth for a good practice of oral health. In time if they have need for special dental services I would definitely get a family dentist that will take care of their oral health with meticulous care and treatment.


Business and Music

>> Thursday, September 18, 2014

We’ve been thinking of a good business to start next year as my sister and I are looking through some possibilities of making it good in some kind of retail business. It’s actually my plan five years ago when I resigned from my 16-year old job but I found myself so engrossed in online writing that it was put aside. Paid blogging was at its peak then and starting a business of my own may not be a good idea since I’m busy with my writing career. 

Anyway since we’re really thinking of adding up a new source of income to our current office salaries we’re considering of putting up a general merchandise shop that would have three kinds of semi-stores such as meat shop, school and office supplies and electronics/computer supplies. Well it’s a kind of shop that will serve as an outlet for the things that we often need in school and home without going too far from your home. 

It’s still in the planning stage for now and since my kids are so fond of musical instruments the idea of adding a music store might be a good one. Of course it will have our favorite string instruments like the Jay Turser Guitars I found online, violin, keyboards, drum sets and other musical instruments commonly used by hobbyists and enthusiasts. I know that music awareness can really be of great help to prevent children and teenagers from engaging in various vices. It will be an added skill as well.


Working in Projects

>> Wednesday, September 17, 2014

We’re approaching the last phases of our work in our project but I still can’t project if we can finish the project by the end of this year. We’ve requested for a realignment and extension until next month but it’s still in process so we really can’t tell how long we’ll be employed for the said project. I’m actually concerned with the CAD operators because for extension project nearing the end of contracts they usually minimize the number of staff and operate on a skeletal force. 

With the progress we’re having the first group to finish will be the design plans group and as early as now some of them were given a month extension only. Oh well after the end of this one I’ll start another one again which if plans pushed through will be a longer term design and construction project. Even if there’s an opening in the head office I still prefer to be in the project as I feel more comfortable and I learn a lot. 

Sixteen years in the head office is just enough for me, I want to enjoy my work life now in the project with more work but with less stress. I don’t want to grow old early with anxiety and work-related problems like my friend whose now wearing hair wigs to cover up receding and grey hairs brought about by being workaholic and too much stress.


Importance of Books to Children’s Learning

>> Thursday, August 14, 2014

Books are vital for enhancing knowledge and instilling useful information to children. From experience I know that reading books help in developing the children’s mind in whatever field they want to excel. It brings out the best in you in writing, creating fresh ideas and learning several aspects of education and life itself.

This is the reason why starting from preschool level children need to study with specialized books to develop not just their mental abilities but their psychological and social abilities as well. There are millions of books available for our specific needs and requirement and educators see to it that learners will be able to use proper books according to their grade level. Revisions and improvement of books are also given attention to ensure that learning upgrade all the time.

Aside from the books our children use in school they should also be exposed to other books that will enhance their knowledge and skills in the field of arts, music and some other recreational activities. From the day that they can see and identify things they should be given books apt to their age to develop identification of colors, shapes, images and later on alphabets and numbers.

These kinds of books are usually colorful and with attractive presentations as children's book illustrators know perfectly how to get the attention of the children and to entice them to see and read. Most of them create educational books, picture books, cartoons, coloring books, magazines for children and some other form of books that caters to children’s market.

Some authors writes only and have the pictures illustrated by others but most illustrators can write as well. It’s important that they publish quality books for better understanding and learning of children. Oh well it’s one of my dreams too – to write a book for children sharing not just my thoughts and ideas when I was a child but to share my good old stories with nice pictures as well.


Learning Sales Resource and Selling Techniques

>> Monday, August 11, 2014

All my previous jobs taught me several things and gave me work experiences that enhanced not just my education but skills as well. Even though my career path traverse through a different road from computer engineering to human resource, administration and accounting I feel so blessed that God has helped me succeed in an entirely different world of expertise. After just 5 years of practicing my college degree I was geared to learn various aspects of work by the training and trust given to me by my kind employer. As my obtained degree in College is really different from my passion the chance given to me was just perfect because I was also given the chance to enhance my writing and finance abilities. I took the shift as a good thing and mastered my newly found craft which gave me financial stability throughout my working years.

Two years ago when I was in a pioneering company they introduce me to another untraveled career path which is all about sales. I’ve had some small stints previously in a minor Telco company but it’s not really a full time sales job. Well the company opened a new world to me where I had undergone a formal training in sales and on the high technology equipment and gadgets we’re selling. The training gave me not only knowledge and techniques but confidence as well as how to handle calls and meetings with prospective clients.

Providing good quality training and sales ideas are a plus to train sales force into making good sales of whatever products they offer. Sales is more than just making money out of your saleable goods but learning the best side of the craft as well. By way of knowing how to learn sales training techniques online you can improve your selling skills, learn better techniques, and use the best content available to achieve your sales goals.

It’s good that there are sites that help sales people and account executives to get valuable sales resource, sales practices and processes, principles, learning units with quizzes and all available techniques on optimum sales results. Well it’s not that late for others to try the world of selling, who knows? You might be the next best salesman/saleswoman in the world.


Some Things that Keeps Me Away from Work

>> Saturday, July 26, 2014

My work fills most of my time away from my home and family so when I want to do something other than my office routines I do it on break time. If all of my office mates were either doing online browsing or resting I spend my time doing my online writing. Sometimes I feel like I’m a robot or something for spending all of my time on work but it’s the real me – a certified workaholic. Well few times I give myself a break and wind away from computer and bond with office friends but most of the times I fill my spare time with worthwhile browsing. 

Anyway if there are things that keep me away from work it’s browsing favorite sites for good reads and online window shopping for shoes, bags, gadgets and musical items for the family. Lately my dear daughter has been coaching me to look at gutar center for her favorite musical instrument and accessories. Her own guitar is not in good condition and she’s just using a borrowed one in practicing her musical pieces. Next month she’ll be performing as musician in their mini play presentation and as early as now she’s using all her spare time to master her craft. I’m saving some money now to buy her a better and high quality guitar to replace her old one.


You’re Hired! 5 Ways to Make Your Resume Stand Out In the Crowd

>> Friday, June 20, 2014

The jobs market is a very competitive place, with some recruiters reporting receiving hundreds of applications for a single position. Even when the number of people vying for the role isn’t that high, you are still nearly always going to be up against other people, some of whom may look rather similar to yourself in terms of qualifications and experience. So how can you make sure that your resume is the one the hirers are noticing? Start by checking out the five tips below.

1. Tailor Your Resume To The Job

Your resume needs to tell your professional story succinctly – but there are different ways that you can present the information so that you stand out as a star candidate for the role at hand. You can have a basic template to use, but tweaking which skills and experience to highlight to suit every application is recommended over using the same document for every application.

2. Include A Cover Letter

This shows that you have taken extra initiative, and can help serve as a form of selection criteria if none was provided for a position. Needless to say, this document also needs to be highly customised for each position that you apply for. It doesn’t have to be long – one page should be sufficient, but it can help introduce you and lets you inject some of your personality to support your resume.

3. Include Descriptions in Your Job Titles

A job title rarely accurately describes what the position actually entailed, so consider adding some key words so that your skills and experience stand out. For example, “Online Marketing Executive With Ad Words Certification” is that little bit more descriptive than a generic term like “Online Marketing Executive”. Please note you should never ‘tweak’ the actual job title though – honesty is still the best policy.

4. Make Sure it Matches LinkedIn

While you want to put yourself forward in the best light possible, in addition to always being factual and honest in your resume, you also need to make sure that what you’re submitting matches your digital footprint. It is also a good idea to ensure that your other social media profiles are set so that only your friends can see your posts and your display pictures are relatively tasteful.

5. Inject Personality Professionally

Unless you are applying for a particularly creative role, your resume still needs to present as a professional document. Limit the use of colours, use a standard and easy to use font and while headings are recommended don’t go too overboard with bolds, italics and underlines. Let your skills and experience be what really shines. 

Your resume is an advertisement for yourself, so it is essential to put your best self forward and taking steps to stand out professionally amongst the crowd. For more employment and human relations articles, visit

Work Challenges and Learning Experiences

>> Wednesday, June 11, 2014

My work involves administering technical employees in a particular project assigned to us. Since the project is a joint venture of two companies my job requires me to report to both and be responsible for all reports and administration of the whole project. I’m also assigned to submit pertinent data needed for the payroll and do the monthly billing due to our government client.

It’s both an easy and hard work and I’m happy with what I’m doing but at times I need to research and study the things that I’m not familiar with such as figuring where to find a wireless trail camera or making an inventory of survey equipment that I have just seen for the first time. Well everything can be learned just as long as the person is willing and interested so I take every unfamiliar task as a work challenge and in time I know it will broaden my work knowledge. And with every learning experience I go through I’m confident that it will be an added skill on me.


Work Becomes Fun and Interesting

>> Monday, May 19, 2014

I was so busy arranging the enrollment of my incoming freshman student in college that I suddenly have no time for myself. I always go to work in a hurry that I don’t think twice if my attire is right for my bag and shoes. Well I’m simple but I still need to dress up a bit in case my boss requires me to accompany him to his meetings with associates and partner. I don’t want to be under dressed on a meeting even if I know that on some people that we meet it doesn’t matter. I was trained to be always on the right attire with all the needed documents in tow for a perfect meeting conference. 

Now that I only have little time to buy for my own personal things like clothes, shoes, bags and accessories it’s nice to see some real good shops that caters to busy working Moms like me. Online shopping saves me a lot of time and effort on looking for the things I need for my office work. It’s great to find some fashionable accessories at Zalora that I can use on my everyday office attire and on special occasions as well. I’m a little bit choosy and I’m happy that I have plenty of options. Work becomes fun when you mixed it with some creativity on dressing up yourself. Glad we don’t have uniform.


How a Tax Attorney Can Help You

>> Thursday, May 15, 2014

Each year, many people file their own taxes, and as a result make mistakes that may cause them to lose money or draw an audit from the IRS. To make life simpler--and make sure you get the refund that you're owed--work with a tax attorney in Sacramento like Mutual Law Group to file your taxes. Because they are familiar with tax law, your lawyers can help you make sense of your taxes no matter what your situation. 

Navigating the System 

Most people don't dig too deep into tax law on their own. This means that when they file their taxes, they tend to miss areas that apply to them. They may not know that they qualify for certain deductions, or they might not realize that they are liable for certain taxes. An experienced tax attorney, however, can make sure that all the proper paperwork is filed so you don't get in trouble with the IRS. You may even be due for a bigger refund than you originally imagined! Tax attorneys can be especially helpful to those who are self-employed or own their own businesses, because there are many different schedules and forms that need to be filed in these situations. You don't want anything getting lost in the cracks. 

If You Can't Pay 

An office like Mutual Law Group can also help you if you can't afford to pay your taxes. They may be able to help you reach a compromise with the IRS that will make it easier for you to pay what you owe. This can take place in one of two ways: either you can pay a percentage of your debt all at once, or you can set up a schedule to pay over an extended period of time. It largely depends on the amount you owe and your current employment status--if you've lost your job and honestly cannot afford your taxes, the IRS may agree to accept a relatively low amount in compromise, because they would rather be paid a little bit than nothing at all. In general, negotiating with the IRS is something that should be handled by an expert, since they have the knowledge to help you get the best deal possible.


Work Colleague Getting Married

>> Wednesday, April 23, 2014

One of my former colleagues at work is getting married not later than this year and we’re all happy for him. He’s been driving himself crazy over his work for the past several years and it’s high time that he should be thinking of his personal life. He started as a simple accounting staff and now he reached his dream of achieving a stable and well compensated job. He’s now the administrator of a well-known shopping mall in the city and he couldn’t be happier in his career except that he’s still single. 

Well he’s not getting any younger and being successful in his career is not enough to fill his life and we’re glad he realized that. As he’s now contemplating on the date of his marriage we told him that he deserve one of those mens platinum wedding bands as a gift to himself for working so hard all these years. Of course he should be getting his bride a nice diamond band too. Such beautiful wedding bands for a hardworking couple and hope their love will last forever.


Insurance Industry Urged to Help Cut Asbestos Deaths

>> Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The insurance industry is being urged to fund research into mesothelioma, the deadly cancer affecting the lungs which is caused by breathing in asbestos dust.

The call for more research into the disease came from the British Lung Foundation’s honorary medical adviserDr John Moore-Gillon, a respiratory health expert.

Little is known about mesothelioma, despite the fact that the UK has the world’s highest rates of the disease. What we do know is that those affected are often people who worked in certain industries during the 1980s when asbestos was used extensively. Back then, there was little asbestos awareness, not to mention the training or asbestos certification that’s available today.

The disease is most prevalent in those who worked in industries like construction, shipbuilding, engineering and power generation, where there was a greater risk of heavy exposure to asbestos.

We also know that around 2,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year and that the Department for Work and Pensions has estimated a death toll of between 56,000 and 63,000 over the next 30 years if current trends continue.

Although the symptoms of mesothelioma can take decades to develop, once diagnosed mesothelioma is a swift killer,with many people living just months after their diagnosis. There is no cure and there are currently few effective treatments.

With asbestos related diseases continuing to blight the lives of those who have been exposed to the killer substance as well as their families, the call for research into the disease is gaining momentum.

Having insurers fund research into mesothelioma could be turn the tide on this deadly disease. More research could change the long-term outlook for those affected by mesothelioma and their families. 

But it could also work in the favour of the insurance companies too, by seeing the amount of compensation they have to pay out decrease.

Insurers are expected to end up paying out more than £11bn in compensation in the coming years. If a fraction of this could be used to fund research into mesothelioma, it could benefit some of the thousands of people affected, not to mention society as a whole.

Of course, it’s too late to help those who are already affected by asbestos related diseases but nowadays we are far more aware of the risks of working with asbestos.  Employers are largely aware of their responsibilities when it comes to the welfare of their staff, and pay the utmost regard to their duty to protect the health and safety of their employees.

Asbestos was banned as a building material during the 1980s, however having been used so widely prior to the law changes, asbestos still leaves a devastating legacy today.

Asbestos awareness training is as essential as ever. Natas have been providing high-quality asbestos training since 1996.

Natas asbestos training courses are recognised in the industry and also by the Health and Safety Executive for providing credible asbestos awareness training.

The company offers a comprehensive range of asbestos training to ensure that companies remain compliant and up-to-date with rules and regulation governing asbestos.

From award-winning asbestos awareness training and e-learning packages for large organisations, to asbestos awareness certification for individuals wanting to work in the industry, Natas offer a selection of cost-effective and flexible packages to suit different budgets and requirements.

Find out more about asbestos awareness certification and free asbestos awareness training at Natas.

Promising Career in Time

>> Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Work is up to my neck these days though I must admit I enjoy my work now than before. I always love my job because I see it as a blessing from God and it helps me in supporting my kids’ education. Right now one of the things that I’m looking forward is the time that my husband will graduate from his education degree as finances will be a lot easier by then. It’s just a year from now and after his board exam I know that God will bless him with a license and a good school to work on. 

Well as my work requires me to do some jobs other than administration I take advantage of this rather than fret about it. Even though sometimes I have to study about designs and other works of Engineers I’m lucky to be trained because I’m learning what needs to be learned. Education is a great thing and if you focus on it like learning how to play piano, innovative percussion, guitar and others you’ll get knowledge and wisdom. Well music is in our genes and it always excites me to see all my kids playing their musical instruments.


Things that Qualifies You to Job Opportunities

>> Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Getting a college degree qualifies you to a lot of job opportunities but it’s more than just education to land a good paying and stable job. Your education is a good pass to try your best to reach your goal and enter the corporate world but it takes more of what you got because work is different than schooling. I realized this when I started working because after a few years of working it’s my skills, perseverance and experience that qualifies me to various job opportunities that I didn’t imagine having. 

Most of my jobs were not in line with my college degree and I was just thankful that I was given an opportunity by my employer to be trained in such kind of jobs as Accounting Supervisor, Billing Officer, Administrative and HR officer. Who would have thought that I will qualify for the jobs that I didn’t studied in college. Well anyone can be trained for a different job like mine or in sales like agents for sunny isles real estate but it’s your interest and dedication that will enrich your knowledge and skills. In the end the value of your job gives you the qualification for future job opportunities.


Searching and Planning Business

>> Saturday, March 1, 2014

My sister and I are searching and planning for a small business that would equal the income of our corporate employment. We’re expecting some finances in the coming months or years and we’d like to invest on something that will give us freedom from working on regular company schedule. We’re working for more than two decades already and as we’re not growing any younger we’re thinking of our future source of income. We’ve grown so close together having been in same school all throughout our life from primary to college, been at the same house since birth and attending the same church for over 20 years as well that we want also to share the same business. 

As we’re going through all possibilities we’re prioritizing bankable field of business like franchise of salable food items, rentals of some sorts and maybe a school supplies or music store which we’re also fond of. We love music and as such we will love to have a one-stop-shop for musical instruments and various music items or accessories. Since not all people will be able to afford expensive items all the times we want some quality inexpensive instruments for the clients we’re targeting. 

I just heard that one of our church mate’s son has been eyeing some cheap drum sticks at wwbw when he browsed it online and we’re thinking that it would also be nice to have an online store also to display the goods we have for the music enthusiast. Well these are just some of our business plans and whatever pushes through I know God had His way on it for the business to flourish and give us enough income to live by. Hope we’ll be able to think further and come up with the right business for the two of us.


Let Someone Else Deal with Arbitrage Calculation

>> Thursday, February 27, 2014

Unless you are deep in your financial cups, you should probably leave something as ridiculous as arbitrage calculation to someone who knows what he or she is dong. If you are like most people, you do not even know what arbitrage is, and there is no real way to work it out by looking at the word and breaking it into its pieces. As you will notice one of those pieces is “rage,” so if you guess someone who gnashed with anger, you could be forgiven but would still be incorrect.

Greater and Lesser Interest
The easiest way to understand arbitrage is that it is the greater interest made on a lesser interest tax exempt loan. While the following example isn’t necessarily correct, it will make the information available to the common person. You get a school loan with a 6% interest rate, but rather than paying for school with the loan, you put the money into an investment that yields 10%. When the time comes, you pay off the loan and pocket 4% difference. That 4% would be subject to arbitrage taxes.

What Is Subject to Arbitrage?
Most people will not encounter the rules for arbitrage because they do not deal in things like municipal bonds. Generally, the debt issued by the government to build things is subject to arbitrage depending on how the proceeds are stored. Arbitrage came about because the government doesn’t want businesses or people to get the money, put it in a high yield investment, and profit from it. If arbitrage did not exist, debt might be issued sooner and remain out longer.

Pluses and Minuses
The reason that arbitrage calculation is so hard is that most investments do not just go up. Typically speaking, an investment will fluctuate with the market. The first six months it might fluctuate between a positive 10 and 12%, and the next three months it falls to -3%. Getting a tax specialist involved who knows the rules of arbitrage and how to mitigate the financial losses will help any company that has government money long enough to want to invest it to stave off inflation concerns.


Considerations in Managing Business and Your Job

>> Monday, February 17, 2014

Managing a business is quite hard especially at the start up because you have to consider several factors to ensure that your business will succeed. You have to make a feasibility study to know if it will work out and make profit. Then you have to consider your financial budget and the kind of business you want to build because it should be managed by someone who knows the ins and outs so if you don’t have the expertise on the business you want you can hire someone who can give you a hand on that. After these considerations you can now think of manpower of staff that will run the business and work for its success. 

Every business has its high and peak moments and you should be able to prepare for it. You must give it a 3-year period to adjust and should not expect high profit in the first years. I’ve been employed in various companies with different businesses and I can say the management differs only slightly and when you’ve been to one you’ll adjust easily to another. I just don’t know if I’ll cope up easily with herioin rehabilitation business or other companies in the medical field because I’m more comfortable with Engineering and Telecommunications field as my course is inclined with it. 

Well that shouldn’t be too hard either as I learned from 25 years of employment that every job and business can be learned and loved. You just have to be patient and should practice great amount of perseverance. Whether you’re the owner, the manager or the rank and file employee you should give your best shot for the company’s success. In the end every effort will be rewarded.


Package Someone Else’s Services as Your Own

>> Thursday, February 13, 2014

You and your company want to add services to help garner more customers and to make the experience of dealing with your company even more rewarding for your current customers. You know that by adding services that your current customers need, you will be able to increase your revenues because it is easier to keep old customers than it is to get new ones. Unfortunately, adding services means creating structures, hiring new people, and investing time and resources that you just do not have. That is where white label concierge comes into play. 

White Label 

The white label is something that grocery stores use to make their own brands of foods. Safeway, Meijer, and other stores do not actually have their own green bean factories that can beans. Instead, there is a factory that cans the beans and issues them under a blank or white label. That label is branded with the store’s logo and name and sold as a product of that store. There could be several different brands of green beans on the shelves that come from the same place but cost different amounts just because of the label it is wrapped in. The important thing to note is that someone else is canning the beans. 

Someone Else’s Services 

You could do the same thing with white label concierge services. You package the services with your brand while farming out the actual work for the services. This will give your customers the opportunity to get things that they would normally be unable to find while maintaining your reputation as a premiere service provider. The difference is that instead of selling a canned good that someone else has canned, you are providing the advertising and your name to a service that someone else is providing. That makes it easy for you to expand your services and to expand your bottom line with a minimal investment. It also makes it easy for your customers to get what they want while making it easier for the third party company to find customers. Think of it like retail for the service world.


Enjoyable Job

>> Saturday, February 1, 2014

I felt lazy going to work today and wished that the holiday yesterday would extend a day. Anyway that’s a common feeling when everyone else is having a long weekend and you’re not. I just hope that I’ll get a job without a Saturday again to enjoy more of my family’s time. I greatly missed bonding moments during weekend where I will cook special dish for them and enjoy just chatting the afternoon away. Oh well the only consolation is that we’re only working until 12 noon and if there are no additional tasks from the boss we can go home after lunch. 

Anyway in my previous work I need a lot of canvassing to make when there’s a need for equipment, computers, gadgets and sometimes accessories like beyerdynamic headphones or other music equipment when we have to join the trade fair. Since the company is such a small one I do some multitasking most of the times but I don’t mind because my load is just light and my time is just enough for my tasks. I also enjoy searching and purchasing musical and computer accessories so I get to enjoy my job. I love music and computers and searching for them is not tasking but enjoyable.


Benefit of Custom Signs for Your Business

>> Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Businesses should know what it takes to have your company services and products recognized immediately. Good marketing and advertising are two main important factors in promoting your business and there are several ways of doing it. Some resort to paying huge amount of money for media promotions like television commercial, radio announcement or having ads in prestigious newspaper companies. Well if your company is not that big you could pass up these things and turn to nicely-printed and well placed signage which is very common these days and offer a better pricing than media advertising. 

With the emergence of high technology digital signage and printing you can promote your products easily without hurting your advertising budget. This is so beneficial especially if your company is only starting and can afford just a considerable amount. You can search online for a good company that provides digital signage and printing like  sign company in NYC and you can have your products be known and recognized easily by prospective clients. If the company has unique and creative signage ideas it will definitely grab the attention of interested parties and those simple passerby as well. 

These signage companies specialized in helping businesses with their specific needs for attention-grabbing signs that will catch the attention of many. With creative customized designs on banners, flags, window signs, vehicle lettering, oversized photographs and any other form of signage you can be assured that your most wanted advertisement is on its way to public attention and curiosity. This would greatly help your big or small business promoted in the way you want it to be and exposed for future business opportunities. You can also get them for some digital printing needs for events and trade fair. There are greater opportunities for your business if you focus on getting the best form of advertising.


High Tech Booths at the Trade Fair

>> Monday, January 27, 2014

Two years ago in my previous company we were busy with preparing company brochures, promotional videos and demo equipment for our booth in trade fair. The trade fair was hosted by one of the major telecoms company in the country and they invited us to participate in the fair to introduce our products and help some companies in providing gateway and storage solutions. It’s my first real fair in Telecoms and I welcomed the experience. 

When the trade fair happened I was amazed not just in our own booth but in others as well. There are plenty of participants and not just in the telecoms industry only but in other fields like internet, construction, appliances, printing, phone solutions and a lot more. I opt to see the highly innovated ones first as I’m always interested to see high tech gadgets. There are video and audio equipment like alesis io4 which provides audio-recording interface and the guests welcomed the very informative demo aside from the background music created by the very impressive sample videos.

Well we also had our own viewers who were so impressed with our cloud storage solutions and gateway equipment. The business development manager of the host telecom company had a meeting with our boss and arranged a trial demo for bulk orders. The fair went well for two days and we enjoyed every moment of it. It was a nice exposure and promo for our products as well.


New Business for this Year

>> Monday, January 13, 2014

DH and I are thinking of good business to start this year to augment our funds for college schooling of our eldest. We’re thinking of renting chairs and tables for various occasions as we’re located in a community that loves celebrating several occasions in a year. My husband’s sister has a business of this kind in Great Britain and she decorates table and chairs with her own handmade and sewed chair covers and tablecloths. She also caters flowers and cake depends on the client’s request. 

Sometimes she asked us if we can find burlap fitted tablecloths for her other theme so she can collaborate it with her own creations. She’s very inspired in designing party interiors and themes that it reflects on the successful outcome of the occasion’s design. We admire not just her creative mind and hands but her intelligent management of her business. Wish we can pursue our plan and later plunge into covers also. We’re still praying for guidance if we will proceed with the business or think of another one.


Safe, Smart, and Secure with Quality Nylon Rope

>> Friday, January 10, 2014

Imagine driving down the road when you suddenly spot something odd. There are two people in an old sport utility vehicle that is loaded with stuff. There is so much packed into the vehicle that you can only tell there are two people inside because you can see their arms reaching out to hold onto their mattress which is just sitting on the roof of their SUV. You shake your head in disbelief as you wonder how they are going to make it through the windy canyon pass. This inexperienced couple is obviously moving all of their belongings. However, they haven’t spent the time necessary to completely prepare their cargo for transport. The first big gust of wind will blow their mattress off their vehicle. Moving any object without proper preparation can lead to disaster. Somewhere around 40 million people change their place of residence each year. With quality nylon rope, people can avoid moving disasters and transport their precious belongings safely. 

Planning Ahead Is Being Safe 

Using bungee cords to secure cargo onto vehicles is an old practice. However, many people still fail to see the importance of properly securing their belongings. This leads to dire and sometimes hilarious consequences. Many a viral video has been created by poor planning during a move. Bungee cords can be your best friend while you are moving. However, proper precautions must be taken. Anything that stretches with elastic has the potential to unleash massive amounts of energy. Accidents caused by poor planning with bungee cords pose a threat to your entire body, especially your eyes. Know the limits of your cords and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines at all times. 

Eye Protection while Using Bungee Cords 

You can use quality nylon rope for many purposes. Moving is much easier when you prepare and secure any loose cargo. Wrapping a bungee cord around loose piles of things can save you on storage space and maintain proper organization for your home. Remember to use caution when dealing with elastic bungee cords. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and always remember to use protective eyewear just in case there is an accident.
