My first online business was quite the learning experience. I started the business to sell hats that I created. I even offered customers the ability to order custom made hats. I wasn’t getting enough customers to cover the cost of having the business. The initial experience left me a little distraught. I thought my business would fail and I would be left with nothing but debt and embarrassment. A friend suggested that I look into hiring an SEO firm to give myself more customers. That’s when I found Algorhythm SEO from a quick web search, a company that would help me turn the tide.
Hiring an SEO company was the best idea my friend ever had. The company knew just what to do to get more attention to my business. They used keywords and links to get my website on the front page of search engine results. Continue reading Hats off to SEO Companies
Everything fell into place after my husband and I visited www.douglaskerbs.com while researching ways to move our Denver area home. We had spent a lot of time talking with various people in the real estate industry about our home and our plans to sell it. We also discussed the price we wanted for our home. We both agree that we are asking a lot of money, but we think it’s worth the price and besides we are selling our memories as well as the house. None of the people we talked to thought the price was reasonable.
Not only did they not think it was reasonable, several flat out said it was too much and that we would have to come down a lot for them to even consider taking our property on. We didn’t like their tone or their insinuations that we were trying to overcharge. We sat down and went over our home’s selling points and again agreed that we should likely get what we wanted from it. The location is excellent, it’s a beautiful home well cared for by the both of us, and it’s in a high end area where houses sell like hot cakes.
So when we stumbled over Doug Kerbs. he seemed to fit exactly what we were looking for in a realtor. He’s known for selling any type of property, and more importantly he gets the deal done at the asking price or even above asking price. When we sat down with him we were impressed with his demeanor and seriousness. Never once did he question what we wanted, and he practically guaranteed he would come through for us. Not only did he deliver, he got the deal done in a week. I think it was the second couple who looked at the house who paid us what we wanted!
One of the things that used to bother me were my silver fillings. I didn’t have the best oral hygiene when I was a kid, and I had several cavities as a result. When I used to smile, if it was really wide like when I laugh, those silver fillings were so obvious. My family loves to videotape family get togethers, so I had seen plenty of my laugh to hate it. I decided that I was going to consult with a cosmetic dentist in Denver to see if there was anything that could be done about it. Continue reading I Had My Silver Fillings Replaced
I am not the type of person to let someone else take advantage of me. The first time my husband hit me was also the last time he hit me. I refused to be a victim, and I started the process to move out and start a new life. I didn’t even want to be in the same state as him, so I looked for the best apartments in Kingsport Tennessee online. My best friend moved there when she got a new job, and she told me that I would have no problem getting a good job there too.
She let me stay with her until my interview, since I started to apply for jobs right away. I had an interview in just a few days, and a week later was my first day on the job. I loved it, and I knew that I had to get my own apartment to feel better about everything that had gone on. Continue reading I Have a New Life Now
That of course seems like two things which are mutually exclusive, but my coach thinks that I shall have to do it. Of course he is in a pretty tough position when you look at it clearly. We had a decent football season this year, but it was not really satisfactory and at the end we had a bunch of important players graduate. Some of them will play in college next year. I am going to be something much more important next year, if you click here for website then you can see the place that I am thinking about going to if it does not cost that much money to go there. Continue reading How Do You Get Bigger and Quicker?
I grew up in a really small town. There was one traffic light. Then, when I got married, we lived in a trailer park. It was quiet and nobody really interacted with or bothered anyone else other than to make small talk. A few years later we looked for Las Vegas Nevada apartments to be closer to where we worked. We wanted a nice place that had all the amenities we would want in a home if we were rich. We looked for things such as a big swimming pool, fitness center and more. We found a place that even has a movie theater.
The move was easy as we had professionals move our stuff. They even helped with unpacking. Settling in was not a problem. Continue reading We Finally Made the Move to an Apartment in Las Vegas
I looked for apartments in Las Vegas, specifically North Las Vegas, after our daughter was diagnosed with a serious illness that required many, many trips to the hospital. Since the hospital she needed to go to is located in that area of the city, we thought it was time to get out of our parents’ basement and find a place to live. We needed a nice apartment complex in a safe area and one that offered lots of amenities. Since we knew we would be going to the hospital several times a week for treatments, we didn’t want to spend all our spare time driving around the city to get stuff done.
My husband did some searching online to see if we could find an affordable place. We’re young and a lot of places just aren’t affordable even though my parents offered to help us out. Continue reading The Location is Perfect for Us
My friend and I decided to get an apartment together for at least a few years so we could each put a huge dent in our student aid loans. We have opposite shifts and days off, so we knew that we would rarely be at the apartment at the same time, which we both knew would keep us friends since both of us have strong personalities. We each started looking at two bedroom apartments for North Charleston. One of the requirements was that we needed two bathrooms, because there was no way I was sharing a bathroom with a guy friend and he felt the same way about sharing a bathroom with a girl.
We found the perfect apartment at Edgewater Plantation. When he showed me the floor plan for it, I knew that it was the one, even without going there in person yet to see it with my own eyes. He said he felt the same way. When you first walk in, there is a coat closet and small foyer. Continue reading The Perfect Living Arrangements for Us
I have always liked the advantages of living in an apartment. You do not have to replace shingles or cut grass. If you live up north, you don’t even have to shovel any snow. No worries about that down here in Atlanta, but you get the point. I know there is no equity earned, but there is no risk of problems putting you underwater for a mortgage either. I have lived in apartments since I went to college, and now I went to visit site properties for a new place. To me, this is the biggest benefit of apartment living. If you get weary of your old place, just move when your lease is up.
I had grown weary with my old place, and I wanted to move to a bigger space. I wanted to have an office at home, and a two bedroom place would let me be able to telecommute three days per week at my job. Continue reading Why Renovate a House when You Can Just Lease an Apartment and Move when You Want Something Different?
I started looking at apartments near Towson not that long ago. I don’t have to move there for another month, but I did not want to wait until the last minute to start looking for a new apartment. I had no idea if it would take me a day or three months to find a place that I liked well enough to make my new home, at least for the next year or so. I decided the best way to do this was just start looking at the different websites for the various apartment complexes in the area, and then decide which ones had openings and then apply.
It did not take me long to know that I wanted to live at Rodgers Forge in Towson, mainly because of how nice the floor plans are for the different apartments. Continue reading An Apartment is Waiting for Me
When I visited Singapore, I saw interesting things. Most people were bilingual. English was a common language there. I was kind of surprised, especially since most of the people I interacted with were Chinese. One of the coolest things I saw there was the building I was staying in. The company I was contracting work for owns a condo in one of the new building projects that is a mixed-use building. There are plenty of examples at Thenewlaunchcollections.com. The one I was staying at with my family for three months had water separating the building from the outside world. You stepped over little footbridges to get from the sidewalk to the building. Continue reading Singapore’s Fascinating Mixed-Use Building Projects
I was thinking of getting a new website for awhile, but I did not know if it was worth it. My thinking had been simply that I wanted the page to look better. I didn’t really think of my customers. But I was looking at massiveinfinity.com and really liked some of the examples that they have on their page of work that they have done for clients. I was impressed enough to contact them. That’s when I learned that it is very important that customers see a great page that draws them in. Customers need to see that your online presence matches the type of high quality service that you give them in person. If your page doesn’t look good online, that can really turn off potential customers. That really resonated with me because it made perfect sense.
After that phone call, I took a good look at my page. There were so many things wrong with it. I knew that I could fix some basic things, but who has the time to deal with that type of stuff when you’re busy putting out so many other types of fires with your business? I don’t. But I knew that I needed to take the time to at least look the page over well and think about some things that I would like a professional to handle for me. That didn’t take to long. When I was done, I called the company back and told them that I was ready to hand everything over to them to start working on something new for me.
My new website is fantastic. I feel proud of it. I have now put my URL on all my business cards that I hand out. I have noticed that I’ve gotten a really nice traffic boost since the new web page has gone up. I have even had new customers tell me they found my business after being pointed to the new page.
My wife first brought up Seaside Residences in Singapore after hearing about the apartment complex from a friend who moved there due to problems with her current accommodations. What interested my wife about this place is that they have an extensive number of floor plans, many of which are three bedroom apartments with lots of living space. She was interested because we’ve lived here for a number of years, but we live in a small apartment that isn’t amenable for raising a family. This is important because we’ve decided to start having kids and we knew we needed to upgrade to a bigger place.
Our other option was to move into her parents’ place. Continue reading Needing More Room for Starting a Family
I needed to cut my household expenditures, which was what led me to investigating electric companies in Philadelphia, due to my wife losing her position at the company where she worked for many years. Since she’s a few years away from retirement, it’s going to be impossible for her to find a comparable job with a similar salary. We needed to save money quickly even though her severance package would keep us afloat for the next several months. We cut the cord on cable television, dropped our newspaper subscription, and sold one of our cars, but I knew we could do more.
A friend suggested going online to investigate switching power companies. He did something similar a year or so ago and couldn’t believe how much he saved on his monthly bill. Continue reading Very Affordable Power Rates in Philly
My brother-in-law is an electrician. All day long he gets small scraps of copper wire from working. I asked him if it would be a problem to just throw it in a box. I told him I would empty it every day since he lives right next door to us. Instead of a box, he uses a 5-gallon bucket. He said he has to clean up the scraps anyway, so it is easy. I asked him to do this because the price of copper per pound is usually quite high. However, you get more money for clean copper than you do for wire that has the insulation on it.
That is why I sit at home when we are watching TV or just lounging about and strip the insulation off of the wire scraps. I then roll up the bare copper and put it in a plastic barrel I have in the garage. When the barrel was full, I had 800 pounds of copper. Continue reading You Do Not Have to Do Scrapping on a Large Scale to Make Some Decent Money
Of course me and everyone else here were a lot more concerned about how this effected us, but it looks a lot like we are going to just end up answering to a different guy, or perhaps his daughter if I read things right. A Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer and a bunch of accountants spent the other day going through everything in the building, they had me there to help them and I had to give up a Saturday of college football and basketball. At any rate they were obviously trying to figure out what the place was worth, but after a bit I sort of wondered if there was some sort of under the table deal going on. Continue reading It Looks Like My Boss is Going Under
My mom had lived on her own for nearly ten years before she fell and hurt her hip and leg. While she can still get around now that has went through months of therapy, she told me she was no longer able to live on her own. She was talking about living in an assisted living apartment, but we both knew she would not be happy in one of them. Before telling her anything, I did a search for two bedroom apartments for rent in Rio Rancho NM. I was only living in a one bedroom apartment, so there was just no room for her to live with me.
However, I knew that if I moved into a larger apartment, then we would both be able to share it. My mom and I are more like friends than mom and daughter, because it has just been the two of us for so long. Continue reading Mom and I Are Living Together Again
When you begin looking for a new job whether you are just completing your degree or have years of work experience and are interested in a new position, it can sometimes be difficult to get noticed by hiring managers. If you have sent out your resume several times and haven’t heard back, it is something a product of your resume, not your work experience or education that is keeping you from moving forward with recruiters. It’s one of the reasons many people hire an executive resume writer to create, update, or revise their resume. Many standards in the industry have changed and it causes resumes that used to be acceptable to be looked over far too often.
Many say that when a recruiter looks at your resume, you only have a few seconds to make a good first impression. Thinking about this, many people realize that their resume does not stand out in a way that makes it really pop on the page and present the recruiter with obvious ways to catch their attention. This is where an executive resume writer comes in. Continue reading Hiring a Professional Resume Writer
For as long as I’ve been alive, I’ve seen money making plans come and go. Some of them seem like they may actually work, but I never wanted to be the one who would test them out firsthand. After that one man decided to scam all of those elderly people and take all of their money, I became even more cautious about trying things like that. Then one day, I heard about a new plan that was getting a lot of attention. I wasn’t sure if it was worth trying, so I looked for Wealthy Affiliate complaints from people who had actually used it.
I couldn’t find any complaints about the plan, which seemed odd to me. No matter how good something is, there is usually at least one thing to find wrong about it, or someone who won’t like a particular thing. This made me a little suspicious, and at the same time made me curious. Continue reading Taking a Chance on a Financial Plan
I’ve worked really hard to get to a place in life where I can put the money that I’ve earned to work for me. For a lot of years, I simply socked away as much money as I could. I knew that I needed a way to invest in something to bring in more steady income, so I bought an old apartment building. Before I could rent out units, I needed some work done first. The big surprise was that I learned I would need to have some asbestos removal done right away.
I hired a team of contractors who were doing a great job working on the old building for me. At some point, they pointed out that there had been a lot of water damage. I learned that the past owner was really bad about getting things repaired quickly, and it caused a lot of damage to the ceilings. That is one of my pet peeves about people, when they don’t stay on top of things so that problems don’t grow worse. Continue reading My Problem Was Solved Extremely Quickly
