Great Job for Someone in College

Getting a job as a part time helper in Singapore did a lot for me personally. I’d been taking some classes at college during the summer, but still needed to come up with a plan to make some money in the time I wasn’t in class or studying. If I didn’t save up something during the summer months, I’d be in big trouble during the regular school year as I wouldn’t have extra funds for anything and I carry a heavy enough load of classes that working at all is impossible. Still, I didn’t want to over do it with working.

A friend suggested I come work with her at a cleaning company. She said they loved to hire college students and other people who needed very flexible schedules. She said the pay is good and that the other employees are awesome. She even said she’d try to pull some strings to get me assigned to her work crew so we could have fun cleaning up bars and office buildings together. That sounded great except the part about cleaning up stuff. Continue reading

Learning to Save Money a Dollar at a Time

I was thinking how the money was being spent at our house. It is the same way it is spent at your house-one dollar at a time. First, let’s consider your mindset about money. Would you pick up a penny you saw on the sidewalk? I would. Money is money. People talk about nickel and diming done by stores trying to squeeze money out of you. We do it to ourselves. We waste money a little bit at a time. Yes, about a dollar at a time. Adding it all up got me to first go to a website looking to save money on our electric bill. That was the first step.

The monthly savings was not enough to call it a fortune, but the yearly savings was a considerable sum. Then I tried to get a better rate on all of our utilities and insurances. We were only locked into our health insurance for a year. Oh, and we had the TV and cell phone contracts that were up in three months and six months. Definitely renegotiating when they are up. Continue reading

Moving for Health Reasons Became a Priority

After living in Arizona for so long, I felt that I needed to move because I had so many problems with allergies there. It really affected my life on an ongoing basis. I was tired of not feeling good, so I began researching places that don’t really have plants and other things that affect people like me. After choosing a new state, I looked thoroughly at apartments in Shawnee Kansas to move into. I had heard great things about the state, and I felt that the city that I would be moving to would be comfortable for me. I had actually been there a couple of times in the past for business, so I knew what to expect.

Something about sneezing and a running nose always made me feel like such a wimp when I was in school. Kids would often tease me. No matter where I went in Arizona, I ran into things that brought on my allergies. I thought that I was destined to go through life that way until I took a couple of vacations outside of the state and noticed that I could breathe easier and never sneezed. My vacations were wonderful, but it was sad to learn that the place that I lived was too much for me. But I knew that moving is not always easy, so I stayed put for as long as I could.

My family is still back home, and they have promised to visit me often. I know that I can text, email and call them whenever I want to. My parents have even said that, after they visit me, they may even want to move to where I will be moving to. We are so close, that I don’t think we can be away from one another for very long. I would love it if they moved to my new state.

Locating Potential Marijuana Dispensary Real Estate in California

I went to visit a friend who owns a marijuana dispensary in San Diego. Like most who do not live in one of the marijuana-friendly states, I found I had many misconceptions about the business and that just finding marijuana dispensary real estate in California was a big challenge that involved a lot of research and knowledge of laws and community-specific regulations.

My friend had been in the medicinal marijuana business for a number of years and his dispensary offered delivery to patients as well. He was looking at expanding his business to have another brick and mortar dispensary and was also interested in opening a grow farm with both indoor and outdoor space to grow marijuana plants. This required numerous meetings with county government, applications for permits and a lot of time spent attending local government meetings.

I quickly learned that opening a dispensary or farming marijuana wasn’t quite as simple as picking an empty store and setting up shop or finding a parcel of land and planting some seeds, While considered legal to use for medicinal, as well as for recreational purposes, marijuana is still highly regulated in California with each county, city and community having specific laws regarding locations for both dispensaries and growing facilities. While properties were abundant, finding one that fit within the very specific limits was challenging. I could completely understand why this process was so time-consuming and frustrating after several days of driving around and checking out properties proved fruitless.

While I had thoughts of moving to California to get into the business myself, I had a very different vision of what being in the marijuana business would entail. It is truly a business like any other and filled with far more regulatory demands that must be met and maintained to enjoy any success.

You Just Can’t Beat Professional Carpet Cleaning

Winter is interesting, to say the least. I don’t mind the kids tracking in fresh snow, but when the thaw begins and it mixes with mud, all it makes is a mess everywhere. Even though we take our shoes off at the door, it seems that dirt, mud, grit and everything else gets ground into our carpet. We do not make guests take off their shoes, and that is probably a big source of the dirt. It’s not a big deal as we get great longevity out of our carpeted floor surfaces because we hire a professional carpet cleaning service to do the job on a regular basis. Continue reading

Commercial Preventative Maintenance Contractor Pricing

My business has a fairly large complex of buildings that our operations are located in, and when you have several buildings, there is a lot of upkeep that needs to be done in order to make sure that everything stays in good shape and good working order. A lot of problems can rise up pretty fast from neglect, and I have seen that happen to other companies, so I want to make sure it doesn’t happen with mine. I am trying to find the cost of electrician in preventative maintenance contracts in NYC as I would like to hire a company to do routine maintenance on all of the buildings, in order to make sure that bigger problems do not happen at some point down the line.

I had employed a few people for maintenance previously, and for a long time I thought that they were doing a good job. Continue reading

A Bump in the Road to Health

Sometimes in life we all hit a road block when trying to achieve our goals. We just don’t know what to do and get to the point of giving up. I was at that point with my own goal of weight loss. I would make a resolution at the beginning of each year to lose weight, and each time I would fail. This year I was close to giving up, when I found the answer in a food delivery company. I read a series of Bistro MD reviews on weight loss food delivery plans, and realized that I had found a way out of my block.

The main interruption in my weight loss attempts was always my lack of self control when it came to food. I would start off eating healthy foods, then I would have just a little bit of something unhealthy as a cheat snack. Continue reading

Free Power Every Single Saturday

There are a lot of different companies that provide energy to Texans. CPL Retail Energy is just one of many that provides to not only homes but also businesses. I wanted to find out more about them after finding out so many friends and family members use their service as well. I found a site that had all kinds of information about CPL and other retail and residential energy providers. I was able to click here on several spots of the site to find out all the information I needed on this company, and it convinced me that I needed to change as well.

I had no problems with the company that I was with, but I also did not have a lot of praise for them either. They basically provided me with the power that I needed for my home, and I paid them for it. Continue reading

We Need More Nationalized Energy

Knowing that the source of my energy comes from a local company here in Texas is a reassuring feeling. When I was living in Kentucky I discovered that one of the two companies to serve the Bluegrass State was actually a business owned by another, larger energy company with foreign ties. I may be old fashioned in believing this but I feel that the energy industry should be nothing but locally or nationally owned and that foreign investors can not have America’s or its people best interests in mind. I still firmly believe that all energy companies should be nationalized.

On the other hand it’s important that we continue to make progress in the industry sector. Already we’re beginning to see what our reliance on fossil fuels might be costing us both domestically and globally. Continue reading
