Our hotel thrived while the one next door failed. Both of us owned the same type of structure that was around the same age and in the same condition. Both of us had friendly staff and charged about the same prices. My competitor went under while my wife and I managed to build a nice business with our hotel. So much that we bought our competitor’s building. I chalk it up to paying attention to details that includes things such as keeping preventative maintenance contracts in NYC.
An example of why I think the attention to detail and preventative maintenance contracts helps is when a couple came across the street with their bags and asked for a room. They had just left the other hotel. They said their room stunk, and they asked if ours did. We let them “smell” their room first. They were pleased and finished their stay with us. (more…)

I have heard the term “newbie” in reference to people who are new to something and mostly stumbling around trying to figure out how to do things. That term fit me perfectly when I first started up my brand new company. I felt so sure of myself wanting to be my own boss. But after hiring my first employee, she wondered why I didn’t hand her a paystub after I direct deposited her payment in her account. So, I went looking for a paystub generator to see if they even existed. Sure enough, they do. I got lucky!
Even though my employee knows that I am new to the business world and I am still learning so much, I really do not like feeling so naive around her. I always felt like I was stumbling around for the right answers for her and for myself in general. She’s a super nice person, but because I am the boss, I felt like I should start sounding more like one. (more…)

I have been thinking about how safe it is to get pesticide sprayed in a house. My wife and I were looking for a house in a good part of the city. Of course when you find a house you like you have a home inspector look at it. The one we hired said that we needed to get someone who does termite control in New York city and have them spray the place, because he said the area has termites. I am not sure how he knew that or how much you need to worry about it if the house down the street has had termites. In fact since we have two very young children we are more concerned about the effect that the stuff that they use will have on them. (more…)

I use the Internet every day, but I would not say that I am an expert by any means. I use it for my email, to read the news, and to visit an occasional website now and again. I am fascinated by it, but I have no idea how it even works, to be honest. I am grateful for it though, and for companies like www.multifamilytraffic.com that make my job a lot easier. My family owns several apartment complexes, and we all have our jobs to do to make sure they earn each of us a decent income.
My job is to basically oversee everyone else and to coordinate things if something happens. I don’t mind this at all, because it means I get to delegate the things I don’t understand, like online marketing. (more…)

Finding the right web and application developer for your business is like wading through a sea of options. It’s as if everyone has become a developer over night but do you know what makes a good developer? Perspective. Perspective in how to present your application or website. The perspective in how to implement it. The perspective of communication. All of these things come together for the end user. How they engage with your application or website and what they take from it is why I chose https://www.massiveinfinity.com for all of my development needs. Based in Singapore where the mobile market has long been an industry power house, they have an understanding of what the end user expects from an application.
As an end user and a small business owner, my personal gripe is the multitude of Android forks that are making their way into the market. (more…)

For most of my life I have dreamed of living by the sea. It has always seemed an idyllic and romantic place to me. I think part of the allure has to do with the fact I grew up fairly far away from the ocean, and did not get to visit it very much. But I also fell in love with it at an early age, and always relished any opportunity to visit. Now I am in a position to look at seaside residences to purchase, and it is a very exciting moment, because when it comes to purchasing a place to live, I am not sure that there is much in the world that would make me happier than to be able to buy a place to live that is located by the ocean.
So that is what I intend to do and I am intent on finding as many listings as I can and searching through them for places that meet my expectations and what I have in mind when it comes to a place that I might purchase. Of course, even though I am very excited about potentially living by the sea in the near future, I need to be careful when it comes to making a decision, and I need to make sure that my enthusiasm does not lead me to making a hasty decision on the matter.
Luckily, it usually takes weeks, if not months to close on a house, and so I would most likely have plenty of time to think the decision over and make sure that I am doing the right thing. I am thinking that I am going to purchase a condo, because there are a lot of aspects of living in a condo that I think would be nice for me.

The first year of owning my own business has been quite the learning period for me. I did some research beforehand about how to run a business, but I still found myself a little unprepared. I had to learn how to branch out more to get more people interested in my business, and found that email marketing was a great idea. Using a list of the top 10 email marketing software, I used a program to help me use my email address to advertise to potential and current customers and get more revenue.
The key to successfully using email to market to other people is to make things straight to the point. There is an old acronym that says to keep things simple. You have to get your point across or people won’t bother to listen to what you have to say. Within the first few seconds of opening an email, a person will decide if they want to delete it or keep it. (more…)

When I first bought my phone, it had excellent coverage. I could be anywhere in my house and not worry about a signal. In fact, the only time I could not get a signal was when I visited my grandparents, which was only every few weeks. When I moved though, I had lousy reception at my new house. I had to go outside to use my phone, and I knew that I needed to change carriers. The only problem was, my phone was locked! I went online to do a search for carrier unlock, because I knew it would be easier and cheaper for me to get my phone unlocked than it would to buy a new phone through a new carrier.
I just wanted to switch carriers, not phones, and I had no idea why I would have to buy a brand new phone to have a new carrier rather than just use the perfectly good phone that I already had. Since that had no logic to it, I just went online, knowing that I would be able to find someone or something that would be able to help me get my phone unlocked.
What I found was a reputable company that has been doing this for a while now. They had excellent reviews, and their prices were extremely reasonable. By using their services and having them unlock my phone, I was able to switch to a new carrier without having to dish out a lot of money for a new phone. It was easy, and I am really happy that I can now make phone calls from anywhere in my house. I like the new carrier that I have, and I really like that I am using my old phone. Needless to say, I’m very thankful to the company that unlocked my phone!

I do not have very much free time in life. This is because I really try to focus on my life and what needs to be done to get ahead in life. I like to pay attention to what my loved ones are doing, though. They mean everything to me. For example, recently, friends were joking around about who will marry Elsy and after realizing she didn’t look to happy about the joking, that her relationship life was something of great importance to her. She had recently had a string of bad relationships and felt that, at her age, she should have been further along to finding a soulmate. I decided to make a concerted effort to help her meet some great guys who I personally know. I make it a point to make time for people who mean a lot to me.
Earlier on in my career, I was so focused on it that I missed a lot of things that were going on with my family and friends. (more…)

I am trying to find some information for pricing on Passaic county electricians because I am going to need to hire one in the near future, to check out a couple of concerns I have with the wiring in my house. I am not sure if they are isolated issues, or somehow connected. But I guess that I will not know until an electrician comes over to my house to check out the issues.
The first issue is the most baffling to me, and that is the fact that we have recessed lighting in the living room of our house, which does not always work. Well, what seems to happen is that sometimes they will be on, and all of the suddenly the lights will shut off. (more…)

An electrical fire caused part of my roof to be burned. I was lucky that the fire didn’t spread any further than it did, or I might have been homeless, or much worse. When I noticed the fire, I called the fire department, and they rushed over to my home. They attached their hose to a nearby fire hydrant and sprayed until the fire was out. While looking a the charred remains, I thought about who would be able to do roof installation in Brooklyn NY for me. I made a note of all of the roofing companies in the area.
Taking in to account certain factors, like price, quality, and customer feedback, I picked the company that I thought was the best. (more…)

It is pretty difficult to see how you could break into online music sales, but this guy I know keeps talking about it. He is looking at other markets which are not being served. He is talking about the sort of site like Baixar musica which operates in South Asia and sells music to that audience. Of course that is the big market that he thinks is not being served by iTunes and the other music download sites. I am not really sure that it makes sense, but of course I am sort of curious how he intends to do it or if he has thought about the language problems that this involves. In fact there are at least two dozen major languages in India and hundreds of dialects which are spoken locally there. (more…)

I have not thought of myself at any point in life as someone who must only be with one person of the opposite sex. I have been, however, someone who always felt most comfortable with making friends with people who are a couple. This means, a man and a woman who are a couple. And this grew until I realized that I would most like to be part of a relationship with the same said people. So, I put out my feelers and began looking online for other women seeking couples to be part of a healthy relationship with. It was not hard to find people that fit that requirement at all.
It is the Internet that has helped people who are a little bit different to find thousands of other people just like them. People do not always talk out loud about who they would like to date, but online, people feel more comfortable in doing so. That is how I found so many other people online who feel comfortable talking about their private lives on a variety of different forums. (more…)

I needed to order some plastic USB flash drives, so I asked my assistant to look in the local office supplies store’s catalog to get a price on them. I wanted to order several dozen because we were going to start a big project, and I wanted to load documents onto each one so my employees would have easy access to them, no matter where they are. When my assistant asked me if she could order them elsewhere, I gave her the go ahead. I honestly did not care where they came from. I just wanted to have them in time for the presentation meeting that was scheduled for two weeks out.
I did know that she likes unique USB drives, but I am glad that it is something that interests her. (more…)

When my sister was involved in a pretty bad car accident, she was lucky to have even survived it. She was in the hospital for a week and had two different surgeries followed by two weeks in a physical rehab center. I knew that she was not going to have the stamina or energy to take care of her apartment, which is why I went online to look up residential cleaning services. She is a pretty neat person, but that didn’t mean that her kitchen and bathroom could go weeks at a time without a cleaning, along with the other rooms.
Her doctor had told us that she would make a full recovery, but she hadn’t even started her outpatient rehab yet. She had extremely limited mobility, so she wasn’t going to be dusting or running the vacuum anytime soon. (more…)
