I Want My Favorite Friend to Become My Business Partner

Featured

I did pretty well with keeping on top of things when my cleaning business was small, but as I have gained more customers, it has become much more tough to keep up alone. I ended up asking my best friend if she wanted to start working with me doing move in cleaning for Singapore locals. She asked if she could tag along to some of my customers homes with me to see what it was like first. I thought that sounded like a good idea. I even promised to pay her if she decided to help out during any of the visits she did with me.

My friend and I have always had an easy time of getting along with one another. We met when we were children and we lived next door to one another. I would say that we were both about six years old when we met. Continue reading

I Work Hard So That I Can Afford Nice Things

Featured

I have noticed that some people really do not have high standards for what their homes look like. I’m very different in that respect. I want a place that looks very pleasing to me. This is why I chose to live in the Singapore New Futura condo building that my mom pointed out to me when I was looking for a place to buy. I love the place so much that I am going to buy a couple more units and rent them out to others. It will be nice to be right on the premises if any of my tenants need me for any reason.

I am one of the lucky people in life who chose to focus on work at a very young age. Continue reading

An Old Reminder Removed with Lasers

Featured

My college days were filled with some pretty crazy nights. I would go out with my friends after tests and do a lot of drinking at the local bar and club hopping. One night while we were out, we passed by a tattoo parlor and I had the back of my head tattooed with a dragon. The next morning I regretted the entire decision and wore a hat until my hair grew back. It wasn’t until this year that I went to the aesthetic clinic to finally have the tattoo removed.

The clinic asked how I got the tattoo in the first place, and I told them the long story about my college days. Every one has a college story about doing something that they wish they didn’t, but I think mine really takes the cake. Most people just get a small tattoo on their arm, chest, or even their back, but not on the back of their head. Continue reading

Making Sure Our Daughter Can Advance in Her Studies

Our daughter is very intelligent. I say exceptionally smart, but I admit to being biased. However, I see her every day, and I see the depth of her knowledge and understanding of things. She is smart on paper too with having high test scores for standardized tests. However, physics are a challenge for her. She gets it on a gut level, but the coursework for college is tough for her. We looked for the best jc physics tuition we could find to help her get up to the level she is at in all other academic areas.

It is no secret that females pursuing science jobs must not have any weak areas to be able to advance quickly in their careers. There is still a little bias left over from the old ways of thinking. It used to be thought that women could not be scientists, but we know that is simply not true. Some of the top scientists in the world are women. Continue reading

How an SEO Can Help Your Online Company

A little over two years ago I started my own online medical transcription business. It started out really slow and most of my clients I obtained by word of mouth. I soon became frustrated that I was not receiving more activity from my website and didn’t know how to change it. Every time I did a search for medical transcription I would have to scroll through up to 25 pages of results before I would see my company. A close friend of mine suggested I contact a company that specializes in SEO in Philippines.

What the heck is an SEO was my first reaction. My friend went on to explain that it stood for search engine optimization. And again I had to ask what that was. He further explained that they use algorithms and other tools to make sure that your web content appears at the top of search engine results. Continue reading

I Just Needed to Have More Followers

I wanted to see how I could get Instagram followers in a faster way. I was relying on word of mouth, but that wasn’t working out too well for me. I was steadily adding numbers, but it was just not fast enough for me. I knew that the only way to be deemed successful by those viewing my page would be to see that I have a high number of followers. Since I was not handling that too well on my own, I decided to think outside the box and figure out a way to make that happen.

I did a search to find some suggestions on this, knowing that I would do anything as long as it was legal. Continue reading

I Am Obsessed with Manicures Now

When my mom asked me if I wanted to have a manicure in Singapore, I told her no. She had to laugh because of how quickly I said it, and she told me that it would be her treat. I have three kids, and I just did not see the sense in spending money on something that would not last very long since I am always busy cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and playing with them. She told me that I could still have a nice manicure with shorter nails, so I decided to go just because I thought an afternoon out with my mom would be a nice treat.

My husband stayed home with the kids, and I think he was excited to have some one on one time with all of them since that doesn’t happen that often. Continue reading

My Mom is Happy with the Cleaning Company

My mom went in for a heart procedure not long ago. She came through it successfully, but she also has a lot of restrictions. She is not allowed to lift her arm very high for one month, otherwise she can cause some damage to what the doctors did. I stayed with her for a few days when she came home, but I could not take more time off work than that. Even before she was released from the hospital, I arranged to have a company that provides house cleaning for Singapore come in a few days a week to help her.

Under normal circumstances, my mom would never allow someone else to come into her house and clean, but this was not normal in any way. She had hands actually touching her heart, so I would say she has earned a rest for a while. She knew that she was limited in what she could do, but she insisted that I be there the first time a cleaning person came in case I had to supervise them. Continue reading

I Decided to Get a House Cleaner

My husband has a great job, and he has always encouraged me to use my time doing what I love. At first, it was raising our children, but they all live on their own now. I then started volunteering at the church and just took care of our home. My husband’s job requires that we host dinner parties every now and again, so I take a lot of pride in our home. My husband has been wanting me to get regular cleaning services in Singapore, but I have always resisted in the past. Lately though, I thought that maybe it is a good idea after all.

My volunteer work with the church is taking up more of my time, and I don’t want to stop doing it just so I can get my house ready for a dinner party. While I do love hosting those, they are a lot of work. Continue reading

No More Worries About Youtube Video Take Downs

Thanks to telecharger mp3 files, I no longer worry about losing my favorite youtube videos. Anyone who uses youtube as much as I do understands what I’m talking about. You find a perfect audio and video track on youtube, save it to your favorites, and then kick back to enjoy multiple replays only to sign in one day to discover a deleted video. This often happens because of copyright issues. They recording company doesn’t want you listening to the track or album for free so they issue a take down notice and it’s gone forever. It’s so frustrating to have this happen.

Even worse is when they’re very persistent about it. I’ve favorited some of the same tracks so many times and they always disappear within days. It’s a real drag to have to keep finding the same track only for it to disappear. I got sick of wasting my time and wondered if there might be a way to download the track. Continue reading

Sometimes I Need My Husband to Remind Me of the Best Things

My husband sat me down one day and told me that moping and staying only in our apartment each day was not going to help me to get to know our new city. He surprised me, but I knew that he was right. I needed to start doing something each day. Next, it was my turn to surprise him when I announced that I was leaving to go get a Holland Village pedicure just hours after he had a talk with me. Up until that point, I never left our apartment unless he was with me. I felt so shy in a new country, but I knew that I needed to learn how to get around on my own. I had no trouble getting to the nail salon by myself, and it really helped my confidence.

We had been living in our new place for two months, and I was not happy about being in a new country at first. I am not someone who has high self-esteem and a great sense of confidence. Continue reading

Getting Facts is Much Better Than Just Getting Spin when It Comes to Political News

I was getting a lot of my daily political news from one online source. I noticed a trend of them always being negative about even the most positive things our new president is doing. I did not appreciate that as I thought about the other side of that coin. If the other candidate would have won, would they make light of mistakes? I decided it was time to get more fact than spin, so I started looking at articles at a Trump News feed website. It might sound funny, but it is all Trump all the time. Maybe that should be their slogan.

Anyway, the website will list articles from different sources that are talking about the same news topics concerning our president. Continue reading

Flyers Are Still a Great Way to Drum Up Business

Featured

I wanted to promote my new business using standard printed media. I did not have a big social media presence, so print media made more sense to get the word out. I have always been pleased with the results a printed ad can bring all the way back to when I used to advertise that I would do outdoor lawn chores from sweeping to cutting grass when I was a teenager. Back then my ads were printed at home or on a photocopy machine. Now I use a company that does flyer printing in Singapore to make me full color print ads. Continue reading

Our Custom Master Bath is Absolutely Amazing

Featured

We were making a completely custom shower in our home in the master bath. We use an adjacent bedroom as an office, and the walk-in closet was not needed in there. So, we used the space for the closet to extend the master bath to twice its size. We hired a company that does custom mirrors in Somerset County NJ to come in and put a mirror over our long granite sink counter with the two big surface-mount sink bowls. They also designed and installed the glass enclosure for our giant shower.

There is enough room in the shower for the whole family to fit at one time. There is a big rainfall showerhead, along with a shower wand and a waterfall showerhead too. Continue reading

Getting a New Roof for Your Home

Many homeowners get excited about the idea of home improvements, but so often this really refers to projects where you get to change the design and look of the interior of the home. Although different than updating your kitchen or bath or installing new hardwood floors, attending to the exterior of your home, getting a new roof or new siding is just as important if not more so. When considering roof installation in Brooklyn NY, the best approach is to contact a local roofing company or contractor to come out to your home and get a quote for the work. Continue reading

Strata, or Landed, Buildings in Singapore Remind Me of Our Townhouses on Steroids!

In addition to the condos they have inside large skyscrapers in Singapore, you can find Strata or Landed buildings available too. These are kind of reminiscent of town homes we would have here, but they are on a much grander scale as far as amenities and designs are concerned. You can see some of them at www.thenewlaunchcollections.com. One example I have in mind is the Whitley Residences. The water feature on this property actually flows from a high point. You can swim in it.

Singapore is tropical, and you are not going to find many places to live that do not offer elaborate swimming pools. The Whitley Residences have a giant swimming area on one side that flows around the building. Some of the residential units have private decks that connect right up against the pool. Some even have private garden areas. Continue reading

Moving into a Luxury Penthouse Apartment in Singapore

There are a lot of projects being designed in Singapore for residential and mixed-use purposes. The island is always building and being more grand with each project. We looked at several places to live inland. We wanted to move right away, but we could not get over our desire to move to a place next to the water. We both wanted a balcony facing the ocean. That was our dream. Then we saw the architectural plans for the Seaside Residences in Singapore. We had to decide whether we wanted to move now or wait and get a Penthouse at the new residential places available in Singapore.

Since we were committing to such a luxury place, we decided to wait until this project was finished in order to move. Continue reading

My Sales Strategies Are Better Than Ever

I don’t care how good you are at with something, because there is always room for improvement. I have been in sales for nearly six years, and I make a really good living from it. My employer does not offer a lot of sales training because he expects all of us to be at the top of our games at all times. I understand that from one perspective, but it is also unrealistic without consultative selling training, at least that is my experience with it. Even though I am always in the top tier for sales, I knew that I could always get improve my strategy and gain even more sales because of it.

That is why I wanted to find a training program that did not take long but was extremely effective. I found just that when I did a search for consultative selling training. The course I took was a three day training program, and I learned even more than I expected from it. I already knew how to deal with resistant customers, but this program taught me how to handle them in a different way that results in more sales. I learned much more than that too.

I learned different things about every aspect of sales, from the opening line to the closing statements. A good bit I already knew, because you don’t get in the top tier of sales without knowing a thing or two. However, I learned so many valuable tips from this three day training course that I am now at the top of the top tier of sales. To be in the top 2 percent in such a large company means that I am definitely heading in the right direction. I was even approached the other day to share some of my sales strategies with others who are not excelling nearly as well as I am!

Looking for Weight Loss Product Reviews Online

When searching for a new weight loss plan, it can be difficult to know where to go online to find the best information. In particular, I wanted to find out more about Isagenix reviews to learn if this product would work for me. I found this one website that had a lot of great information, so I decided to study it and learn more about the product. I trusted this website because it had feedback from a lot of people who were just like me. I think that a lot of people want to lose a little weight just to feel healthier and look better. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to lose a few pounds in order to improve your health. You just have to be really mindful about having realistic expectations. It’s also wise to consult with a physician before making any extreme health changes.

The reviews I read were very favorable, and they taught me a lot about using meal replacement shakes. I used these type of shakes years ago, but a lot has changed since then. Continue reading

Started to Furnish My New Place

Of course I had furniture when I was in college, but it was literally not worth the trouble to bring it with me when I rented a little house from my cousin’s aunt. She is moving to Myrtle Beach, but does not want to get rid of her house yet. I would really like to save up the money for a down payment, because it makes a lot of sense to build equity in a house. At the moment I am looking at a buyers guide for leather furniture and trying to figure out how to properly get a good deal on the furniture I need. It is obvious that you are not getting a great deal if you buy stuff that turns into trash within a couple of years. You want to get stuff that your kids would be able to take off to college or to their first place. That is when you get a good deal on furniture, when it lasts more than one generation. Continue reading

Kids and Keeping Fish Tanks

I remember my first fish tank. It was a five gallon aquarium that had a bright metal frame all around the edges. Now they come with plastic around the top and bottom. I enjoyed that little tank a whole lot. I liked the neon tetras and how they appeared to glow in the light. I added different things such as a bubbler to make a wall of bubbles. I’m thinking about it because of a click here link I followed to learn about Betta fish. In my old five gallon tank I think I had a treasure chest in there that use to have its lid open and close with air bubbles coming from the pump. It is easy to get too much in a five gallon tank. I remember my Betta fish I had too. I have had more than one. I knew them as Siamese fighting fish. You could get them to get aggressive by just holding a mirror up to a bowl they are in. Continue reading

It’s Not Enough to Just Post Pretty Pictures

It has always seemed to me that most people are more social than I am. I am very uncomfortable with being the center of attention, and it shows. So, when I learned that I needed to get my business on social media, I was not really thrilled with that at first. My account was boring, and that was because of my fears. But I put that aside and posted better things. Still, my account looked so quiet. I needed it to look like it was more popular, so I figured out how to buy real Facebook fans to make that happen.

I was just looking for tips on how any business owner can be more interesting with what they choose to put online. It was then that I learned that I needed to post better photos. You need to pay attention to everything from how you use light so that people can see well, make sure that everything looks clear without any blur, and you need to frame things well. These are things that I had not been paying attention to at first, and I did not realize how important they are.

Even if you do get better with the things you post, you are competing with many other companies out there. It can be a little hard to be found online when you are just one in a million and not a well-known name brand. So, in order to get people to see that you are not someone to ignore, getting another company to add a nice number of fan followers to your account really helps out. I spent about six months with very few followers. My posts brought in a small rate of new people, but using the company that added new followers helped even more. I really needed that.

The Water Would Not Go Down the Drain

When I took a long bath the other night, I was not expecting it to end the way it did. I had gotten out and let the water out, but it was not going down the drain. I took the plunger to see if I could get it to go down, but that didn’t work either. I knew that I needed a professional’s help, so I contacted a company that does drain cleaning in Bronx NY. Since this was obviously a drain issue, I figured that it would be best to just bring in a company that would be able to take care of the problem at the source.

I was pleased when they told me they could come out that same evening. Continue reading

Battle of the Big Bird

Featured

I generally like birds because they’re nice to look at and don’t really bother anyone. Hearing the birds singing in the morning is quite enjoyable. It’s almost like nature own little alarm clock. Recently I had a little incident that challenged my thinking about birds. A bird set up a nest in a tree that sits on my front porch. Whenever I would try to leave through the front door, the bird would caw at me and would occasionally attack me. Things got so bad that I had to call in bird control in NJ to get rid of the bird.

I was able to handle having the bird on my front porch for a while. I went out the garage door instead of the front door, even though it was more inconvenient for me at times. Once I forgot about the bird being there and tried to go out of the front door. The bird flew from the tree and onto my head and started pecking at me. Continue reading

Best Shows from Japanese Drama Genre

I have been dying to find something new to watch for the last few weeks. I started watching this Jdrama series for the second time over, and even though it is a really good show, I am kind of getting tired of re-watching it. I have a problem with watching shows for a second time, even if I really liked them the first time around. I guess it is just not as much fun, and that is especially the case for a show that is in the drama genre.

With a drama, so much hinges on plot twists and the like, that if you know what is going to happen, then it is almost like it is not worth watching. At least, that is how I feel about it. Continue reading

Watch Korean Drama Online for No Cost

I am getting pulled away from my computer again, which is pretty annoying, because I just sat down and got comfortable. I was watching a show that I recently found. It is a show on this site where I watch Korean drama shows. I have been getting really into them recently, and I know that might sound a bit weird to a lot of people. But it turns out that they are really good.

The reason that I am getting pulled away from my chair is that I need to help to set up a pull. Continue reading

Taking Care of Gram at Home

When my grandmother was diagnosed with dementia, it broke both of our hears. We knew that it was probably going to happen as she was getting more forgetful. We recognized the signs from other family members who have gone through the same process, but there was a positive in that as well. Since we could see the signs, we decided to take as much control as we could in her care. She practically raised me, so I wanted to make sure she was as happy as possible. We looked into dementia care in Queens to see if there was a specific course of action that is better than others that are also available.

What we found was a blessing. We were actually looking at places where she would go, but we found a home agency group that sends people to her instead of making her go to them. Being able to stay in her own home for as long as possible means everything to both of us. Continue reading

A Great Car Seat for Our Baby

When I found out that my wife and I were going to have a baby, I made a checklist of the things that we had to take care of before he was born. We wanted to make a really awesome nursery for him, plus we wanted to make sure that he had the safest things. That is why I started looking at the best car seats I could buy right after we purchased all of the baby furniture. I knew from that experience that not all things are made equal, and some are just simply better than the others.

I knew that we would have the baby in the car a good bit because my parents live about 20 minutes away. Continue reading

The Perfect Birthday Party Celebration

I wanted to have a really nice birthday celebration for my wife of three years. I knew she was not one for surprises, but that didn’t mean I still couldn’t throw her a great birthday bash with those who are closest to her. After compiling the list of those people, it had nearly 30 names on it. Since everyone on the list is an adult and they all enjoy a drink now and again as well, I looked at wine parties in NJ. I had never been to one before, but I had heard some great things about one that my cousin had gone to not that long ago.

She told me that the room that the party was held in was very large and comfortable, and they were allowed to bring in their own decorations and food. The main thing that the winery provides, other than a large comfortable room for the party, is the ability to take part in the wine making process. I had to tell her about this in advance because we had to go eight weeks before her actual party to get everything started. Continue reading

Just Take That First Step

Sometimes things aren’t right in our heads and we need to go to someone to get them sorted out. This is a pretty depressing thing to think about but it happens to the best of us. I know that when it happened to me I looked into Charlotte counseling right away. I was in the area and I finally decided not to put it off any longer. That was probably the best decision that I have ever made. I am happy to report that I am doing well and full of life again. If you or someone you know is at risk of putting themselves in harms way or putting someone else in harms way you should look into counseling for them. It is kind of cliche and a lot of people look down on therapists but in my experiences, they really do a wonderful job and are there for the patients that need them the most. Continue reading

There Was Just Something About It

Apartments get a bad rap, when in reality they aren’t that bad. They offer a nice solution to people that just can not afforda house at the moment. I know for sure that I would have been homeless at one point if apartments did not exist. There is no way that I could afford a house at the time and I was actually jobless, so I pretty much needed to find and apartment that I could afford to live in until I found a new job. I was browsing, looking for one and I saw a banner, “click here” it said. So I did and it took me to a website for Heronwalk Apartments. I had never heard of this place, but I was pretty desperate so I checked it out. Continue reading

Feel Feminine and Confident Today

The breast actives review was a huge thing for me when I found your website. Sometimes I know it is hard to really just see a product online and want to trust it enough to purchase for yourself, because let’s face can you really trust the reviews and comments you read online. Well, I am here to tell you when it comes to naturally enhancing your breasts you can count on this product to do it naturally. Natural breast enhancement sounds like one of those things that you read in a science book and think, if that only worked then I would buy it and live happily ever after.

But this is not something that is written in a fairy tale book, this is reality. I know women are conditioned to believe the only way you can enhance your breasts is through surgery, but that is definitely not the case with me. Continue reading

A Car Rental Versus a Cab

I have never traveled for business before, so I was excited to take my first trip for the company that I work for. Not only was it my first trip, but it was also the first time I would be in Malaysia. I have heard a lot of things about it, but actually being there to see and experience it in person was exciting. I knew that I would want to explore the area during my downtime, and thankfully I would have several days to do that. I was able to find Big Thumb in KL, which is a car rental company.

I went back and forth on that at first. Continue reading

A New Way to Look at Problems

Winter is here. It might not officially be Winter yet but to me, for all intents and purposes, it has finally come. I’m going to admit something to you dear reader that I have not admitted to anyone else; I am sick and tired of being tired of Winter. Really, it’s a useless season that does nothing but bring misery and headache to everyone who has to live in the general vicinity of cold weather, snow, ice and all the other nonsense that accompanies seasonal change. Yes, I did call heating repair in Morris County NJ. Thanks for asking, dear reader. Continue reading

Do Any of These Supplements Work

I have decided that I need to undertake a few self improvement projects. For one thing I would like to quit smoking, but of course I would prefer to do it without gaining a lot of weight. I am probably about fifteen or twenty pounds heavier than I should be if you look at one of those BMI (Body Mass Index) charts. I have been looking in to how to accomplish both things and reading stuff like Garcinia cambogia reviews to try to figure out if there is any supplement or pill I can take that is going to help me out with the losing of the weight. Of course it is probably not so easy to do either of these things and doing both of them will be even more difficult, but it is something where I have a plan to do one in the name of the other.

Get the Loan when You Need It

It is great to know that it is possible to check out the licensed moneylender here without any hassle. There are many people in Singapore that have fallen upon hard times. There are many unexpected costs that may come up in a persons life for which they do not have sufficient funds. If a person is hospitalized long-term, if a person loses their job, or if a person cannot pay for their financial expenses, there may come a time in their life for which they may need a little bit of help. There are very few financial institutions in Singapore that help people to get loans in such cases, but if a person is looking for a loan this is the place to go. It is good to know that there is a website that a person can go to in order to be able to gain more information about how to get a personal financial loan.

Apart from needing a loan for personal issues, there are many people that may be in need of a loan for business. Continue reading

Doing Some Work in Las Vegas

I have been busy today trying to solve some problem with the pop-up stand at the convention center. There is some little piece of it that is missing and the thing is not really all that safe to use without it. At least I am not thinking that I want to be standing next to it for hours and hours with this piece on it. The thing is there to brace it and secure the two parts of it together. Without it they stand up and would be fine if no one ever jostled up against them, but if you happened to lean against the thing it would probably fall over. I am sure it would if you have more than one person there they could easily put enough pressure on it to make it fold up just like a house of cards. Continue reading

Looking at a Little House in Brooklyn

Looking at a little house in Brooklyn, but it is not as though it is the sort of place that is free of problems. It is the sort of place that I can afford, which means that it has some real problems. The big one is the roof, and it is a matter of whether or not I have to replace it immediately or if it can wait a bit. I talked to a couple of guys who do roof repair in Brooklyn NY and they were both telling me that it was going to have to be done quickly, which was what I suspected. However I explained it to them pretty simply. Continue reading

Getting Help for Seniors in Long Island

It is not uncommon for people to be stubborn about getting help, as it often feels like losing independence and becoming reliant on others. The bottom line, however, is that sometimes it is absolutely necessary to get a little assistance. This is especially true later in life, as seniors often see deterioration in health which can impact everything from cooking meals to getting in bed. Whether a senior is stuck in a wheel chair or simply slowing down, in-home services can make the difference between misery and joy. Senior home care in Long Island is growing in popularity because of this, as everyone wants to make sure that their parents and others are able to live comfortably.

More often than not, family is involved in situations like these. Continue reading

Finding Success Beyond American Shores

After checking out some of the Highline Residences in Tiong Bahru, it was a no brainer to make the decision that I had been putting off for several months now; move to Singapore. Since graduating college I had been feeling this desire to move. Not just move to a new apartment or into a home, not a move that would take me to another city or state. Nope, I’ve been possessed with this desire to see the world in a way that is beyond just my computer. That’s not even living or experience the world as much as I could be!

I chose Singapore for a number of reasons; the economy is one of the very best in the world right now with a lot of freedom for domestic and foreign investors to capitalize on. The people here are generally well educated, skilled and eager for work while the government takes care of its citizens in ways that approve of. Continue reading
