I own a rather large store here in Singapore. I did not listen to my business associates when they said that the online marketplace would make my company obsolete sooner rather than later. Sure, prices are more competitive online, but I also knew that brick and mortar stores could stay relevant under the right circumstances. One of the things that I did when I first opened the doors a couple of years ago was talk with a mobile app developer in Singapore. I knew that I needed to offer some unique shopping experiences if I was going to be able to keep my doors open.
One of the things that I wanted to do was have a personal shopper assistance app that people could have with them as they went through the store. If they needed a price on a product, I wanted them to be able to just scan the bar code with their phone. If they needed the location of a department or even a specific item, I wanted them to be able to find it with the online map of the store that is in the app. Continue reading Rewarding My Customers for Their Loyalty
I was just on my way to work and I stopped at this great little diner on the way and got a biscuit and a cup of black coffee. It was a little early and I was not really happy that I had to go in to work in the dark. I had just gotten the car straightened out when I saw the car, it was driving erratically and I think the driver was asleep. I did my best to get on the shoulder, but he hit me really good. If you go to this website then you can see that the dentist I had to go see is going to be really experienced in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Continue reading This Guy Hit My Car This Morning
I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. I really enjoyed everything about it, other than the harsh winters. When my folks moved south after retirement, I knew it was time for me to think about the same. I just did not have it in me to endure another winter if I didn’t have to. I put in my application at several schools in the south, and I was really happy to get hired on at the Simpsonville high school. My next move was to look at luxury apartments in Simpsonville SC before even moving there.
It just took one look at the Arbors at Fairview apartment complex to know that is where I wanted to be. Continue reading I Never Want to Move Again
I have lived in apartments all my life. When I was born, it was just my me and my mom in a small one bedroom apartment. When I went off to college, I had off campus housing at discounted student housing apartments. When I graduated from college, I moved in with a couple of buddies into a three bedroom apartment. Now, I live on my own in a really nice two bedroom apartment. I didn’t even consider looking at houses when I did my initial search for apartments in North Dallas. Apartment living is all I have ever known, and I am just fine with it. Continue reading The Nicest Apartment I’ve Ever Lived in
It’s fascinating to watch an entire industry undergo a rapid series of changes as it seeks to cope with the presence of a competitor that nobody could have predicted the success of. Uber, Lyft and those ride sharing services sharing similar methods of reaching their customers have forced their way into the transportation market riding the wave of apps that the average, every day individual uses as easily as they make a phone call. This has left the Taxi companies and even the limousine industry (companies like http://www.starnightlimousine.ca) scrambling to protect their precious niche. Limousines have fared far better than the Taxi industry thanks to the model of their own business. The Medallion system used by local governments to enforce the number of Taxis on the road is one that has long created a false scarcity and value that was far more inflated than it should have ever been allowed to become.
It’s that regulatory Medallion system that has currently held back the industry from remaining competitive against these new cars on the road whose drivers have the flexibility and freedom of being independent contractors for their chosen companies. Continue reading Preserving the Transportation Market Share
The hunt for a new apartment can be a stressful task if you’re on a limited time table. This is especially true for those who have to seek out of town for a new place to live. There’s so much to know about an area before you decide on an apartment; the crime rate, how many grocery stores there are, hospitals, medical practices and so on. I count myself lucky on being able to experience Murano as my choice in home living. I’m incredibly picky when it comes to my apartments. Apartment living means learning to live with neighbors that are more closely packed than you’re going to find when living in a home. Upscale apartments are often more insulated against noise than most but these apartments, if they’re not modern, are over priced. What we expect out of our upscale apartments has radically changed in the last ten years with more automation being desired from utilities.
For most, this is not a concern. Continue reading Learning How to Live in a Community
When my husband and I realized that I needed to find a job so that I could help get us through a rough patch with bills, I told him that I would get a job with one of those companies that offer cleaning services in Singapore because, as a housewife, I know how to clean well! However, the company that hired me showed me that, no matter how much I think I may know about cleaning, they do have a bit of training that you must go through as a new hire so that you can represent the company in the way that the company wants it done. It makes the customers happy.
I worked for a few different cleaning companies back in the 1980s. I didn’t even have to go through a job interview to be hired by any of them. Continue reading I Enjoy Working for a Company That Values Their Employees and Their Customers
I have watched my kids overcome a lot in their lives. They love to challenge themselves when it comes to just about anything. They don’t want to take the easy way because they find it is too boring. Instead, they would rather work hard and feel the satisfaction that can only come from that. When my daughter had some struggles with her physics class, I waited to see what she would do. She considered her options, and she finally told me that the only way she could see this working was if she enrolled into a JC physics tuition program.
I had the same thought, so I asked her which one she wanted to join. Continue reading My Daughter Needed Physics Tutoring
My husband gets me really frustrated when he doesn’t feel well because he doesn’t have a high pain tolerance. He had a bad back for over a year, yet he had not done anything about getting help in all that time. He kept putting it off, so I began looking at for a chiropractor in Camas WA to find a good one. My plan was to make an appointment for him and then tell him that I needed him to go for my sanity. It made no sense at all to me to sit around in pain and do nothing about it. Everyone deserves to be pain-free, and I also know that getting rid of pain can make you much happier.
I like men who are strong-minded. Continue reading My Husband Followed Through with What I Had Planned for Him
Having just started a new job in New York, my youngest brother met up with a few of his college friends to celebrate his first official job. Unfortunately, what started out as an evening of fun quickly turned into a quest to find a dwi lawyer in Albany NY.
My brother, did not drive that evening, instead trusting in a friend to be his group’s designated driver. Unfortunately, the designated driver was using the restroom when the owner of the tavern they had stopped at said his car needed to be moved as it was parked in a spot designated for another business in the strip mall type building where the tavern was located. My brother, without thinking, grabbed up his friend’s car keys and went to the parking lot to move the vehicle. He had to physically leave the parking lot and for a length of maybe 50 feet, was on the street where a police officer immediately saw him get in a car from the tavern, and pulled him over, supposedly because he had not been wearing his seat belt. Continue reading Evening of Celebration Turns into Need for a DWI Lawyer
I have a very stressful job. I know most people don’t like these kinds of work places, but I absolutely love what I do. There are times when I want to throw my computer out the window, but there are more times when I want to high five everyone around me for the great job they are doing. I could tell that the stress was affecting me in some ways though, and I decided to go see a chiropractor in Campbell CA to see if there was anything that could be done about it.
I had a lot of pain in my shoulders and across my upper back, and I thought that this might be because I sat at a desk for so many hours throughout the day as well as the stress that I was feeling. I had no idea that a chiropractor could make me feel so good, because had I known that, I would have went to one years before I finally did. Continue reading A Chiropractor Educated Me on My Poor Choices
I was just having a great day out riding with some of my friends at first. I do not have any horses of my own, but one of my friends knows a guy who has a big farm with about thirty or so horses, most of them are quarter horses and these are a real blast to ride, especially if they know how to barrel race. Of course I ended up seeing a Mesa chiropractor because the horse was a lot better at that than I turned out to be. If you have ever seen this done, then you would realize that the horse really has to cut the time around the barrels as much as possible and a quarter horse is really great at this. They sometimes knock the barrel over and a lot of the time it is wobbling around after the fact. You get penalized for knocking it over, but just running into it is fine. Continue reading Hurt My Back Riding Quarterhorses
When looking for apartments in Charlotte NC 28217, I paid the most attention to the location of the complex. Since I’m a transplant from upstate New York, I spent a lot of time studying the city and making sure that I would pick a place that is near many restaurants, shopping areas, and other places for fun and entertainment. I’ve known other people who moved to the South and they didn’t do their homework, which resulted in them living out in the sticks and far away from the city center. I made sure that wouldn’t happen to me.
It’s probably due to the fact that I lived in a teeming urban area in upstate New York for most of my life. Continue reading The Location is the Best in the City
When I decided to move because I was just not happy with where I was, it was actually a pretty big decision for me. I hate change so much that I tend to stick with things even if I am not completely happy. For me to make such a big change in my life meant that I was extremely unhappy, which I was. I was tired of living in an apartment where there was no central air, where the pipes creaked all day, and so much more. I searched online for modern apartments for Lewisville because I was not going to move from one bad place into another.
I wanted to make sure that the apartments that I had looked at were new and modern, and that they were not something similar to what I had been enduring for the last several years. Continue reading Everything is in Great Shape Here
I did not have my mind set on moving to Florida at all. I was actually content where I was up north, but an opportunity came open and I knew that I had to take advantage of it. Sometimes, these opportunities come along several times, and other times it is a once in a lifetime shot. This was the latter, and I wasn’t about to miss out on it after giving it a lot of thought. Even though my job was going to take me to Tampa, I decided to look at apartments for rent in Temple Terrace.
The difference between Tampa and Temple Terrace is night and day. Tampa has over a quarter million people living there, while Temple Terrace is much smaller at not even 10 percent of that. Continue reading I Was Not Looking to Move
When my boyfriend was given the opportunity of a lifetime, it meant we had to decide a lot of things together faster than we could have imagined. We both lived in Florida at the time, but this opportunity was only possible if he moved to San Antonio. We both knew he had to take this position, but we also knew that it meant we were going to have a long distance relationship. That is why when he looked at apartments for rent in San Antonio, he wanted me to help him.
Even though we were not living together at the time nor had we ever talked marriage, we both knew in our hearts that was the next step. That is why he wanted me to help him pick out the apartment that would be our first home together. We knew that we still would not live in it together until we were husband and wife, which is why we had the quickest engagement period ever. Continue reading Married and Moving into Our First Apartment
I looked at the website for the Overton Rise apartment complex and was just amazed at all that is offered there. I took a quick glance at the pictures, mainly because I wanted to get a feel for the place before I started looking at the rest of the information about these luxury apartments on the site. I really enjoyed the visual tour, but I wanted to see just what makes the actual apartments so special. The pictures did show a lot of the details that are included, but I wanted to see what the pictures weren’t including, since there were just a handful of them for the actual apartments.
Some of the details that could be seen but not completely understood until reading further include the fact that there are ten foot ceilings in these apartments and eight foot doors. Continue reading The Apartment Features Are Plentiful
I had my heart set on living in a particular area long before I ended up living there. I wanted to look for apartments in 30318 because I knew that it was a safe area and there are a lot of things to do there. And one of the reasons that I paid attention to where I wanted to live before actually making the move is because it is always a good idea to have goals. When you can see your goals that you have set for yourself, it helps you to stay focused. If you don’t organize and do things ahead of time, you may find yourself in a position that you’re not happy with.
I was not always so goal-oriented. My mom is the one who helped me with that. I have ADD, and it has affected many areas of my life. Teachers kept saying that they thought I had a learning disability of some sort. Continue reading I Owe Everything to My Mom’s Love and Care
In fact it is not precisely my place, but instead myself and two guys from work signed a lease on a three bedroom unit before they finished the construction. The place is on Cobb Galleria, not far from the new SunTrust Park where the Braves play. Of course it is within walking distance of my office. If you look at the website you can see that it is a really nice place and there is a nice fitness center that is a big draw for me. I need to get in better shape, since I am something like ten or fifteen pounds heavier than what I should be. Continue reading I Am Ready to Move in My New Place
I used to know what it took to make a great website about 20 years ago. I loved doing all the coding for the actual design because it wasn’t that hard. But the Internet and people have changed for the better, just like anything else does over time. I’d heard about Algorhytm from a business associate because that’s who she used for her own website. I trust her judgment, so I decided to use the same company myself. They taught me a lot, and it was a pleasure to see what a difference their work made for my business. I have to focus on doing what I need to for my company and using someone else’s services to do things I can’t focus on myself really does help out a lot.
Twenty years ago, someone told me that it’s easy to make websites, so I learned how to make one. Back then, there really weren’t any companies around who could do it for you. So, I made a clumsy-looking page and put it online. Continue reading I Make Sure to Use Other People’s Services to Keep My Business Running
I used to love to go visit my aunt and uncle in N.C. during spring break in when I was in grade school and high school. My parents took me and my brother’s there each year. Never did I think that I would one day find myself looking through apartments in South End Charlotte NC to live there myself until this last year. My aunt and uncle don’t live here anymore, but they were thrilled when they found out I was coming here to attend the university here. I told them that I expected them to come to visit me at least once in awhile since I will be on my own. They agreed!
My family is incredibly close. I knew that I needed to live on my own for school. I’m too close to my brothers and sisters and everything that goes on with them takes up far too much time. They are younger than I am, so I worry about them often. I knew that distance would help me focus on school work. Continue reading I’m Excited About Living on My Own for the First Time
I have been sneezing a lot today, which is really stupidly painful. It is hard to describe how painful it is, in all honesty. That might sound surprising to most people. But I was involved in a fairly serious car accident not all that long ago, and I am still on the road to recovery. To try to speed up my recovery I would like to try to visit a car accident chiropractor in chandler az in the near future. I think that it is very important that I am able to visit a chiropractor that specializes in treating people who have been injured in car accidents, as opposed to just going to see any chiropractor out there.
I just think that having a lot of experience with the type of injuries that are typical of car accidents would be a very positive thing in trying to treat my injuries. My main injury is to my lower back, but I also suffered from some whiplash which caused soft tissue damage in my neck. The lower back injury was much more severe from a lot of perspectives, given that it included a couple of my vertebrae being broken. It could have been worse, that is for sure. The doctor said that if the accident had just been a little bit different in how it played out, then it is likely that I would have been paralyzed for the rest of my life.
From the waste down that is. I should have mentioned that. Anyway, I got off lucky I guess, and I can walk currently, but not very well. I want to try to speed up my recovery if that is at all possible. But I have come to accept that this might not be an easy path to really feel normal again.
