Benefits of a Business Plan

I ventured in a retail business before and the experiences that I had are very relevant in this post.I can well relate on what happened in my commercial undertaking that risked a loss and promised a profit. During the start of the business I encountered hardships while making adjustments on whatever plans concerning the business. I would say that the business was full of ups and downs. You had to deal with different kinds of customers,suppliers and service providers. In the business you were also responsible for the business permit and tax requirements. Everything was inter-related as the business grew for years. Making a business plan really helped a lot in setting out the future strategy and financial development of the business covering a period of several years. It is a comprehensive assessment of the sales,profit,monthly expenses, fix assets, personnel salaries, licensing/taxes and other related subjects. It helped a lot especially in making decisions on every matter that concerned the business. From the plan you would know which side of the business needs improvement and which one makes a big mark. It is also a great aid in deciding whether to continue or make an end with the business. The business plan would surely save you as a proprietor from the financial heartaches and burdens of shelling out cash capital without the return on your sweated investment. It pays to have a business plan if you want to start,grow or end your business.

Blog Advertising

I had been fascinated of doing blogs for almost six months now and I do enjoy the passion of being creative on whatever topic that comes to mind. Many people are making it for personal or business purposes. Others may do it to inform and update about the latest news and current events. Online interaction is part of our lifestyle at this present time and I would consider that it is wise to It is a powerful tool of communication where there is a direct interaction with the prospective clients. With just a simple search criteria on the internet, valuable market for products and services can explore what you are offering and they can access the details of it in fast and easy way. A good post about a certain product through would certainly earn more reviews and rewards. There are millions of people making access daily on the internet for any particular subject or topic and the market if you advertise on blogs is worldwide. If I have something unique product to sell, I would prefer advertising it through blogs because there are many viewers and readers who would be of interest to the product you are offering. Thanks for this great opportunity of online advertising. Your style really works!

Working Overtime and Liking It

It is already Saturday and I should take my break after a strenuous tasks from Monday to Friday. I have no choice but to render an overtime work today because there are important transactions that should be encoded to the online system for the deadline this coming Monday. Part of the job being in the revenue office, a never ending transactions of the people in every walk of life. Anyway, I am still grateful and enjoyed the benefit it brings and hopeful that someday great opportunities will come along way. I feel tired today but still smiling..:D

Crazy ,Funny Email for the Weekend

I got this forwarded email and would like to share it here just for fun. This is from a doctor considered to be a medical wizard and his practice has no room for new patients. Have fun this weekend! :D

I love this Doctor

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise.
Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer;
that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster.
Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn.
And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient
mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken.
Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable).
And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all.. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine,
that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more
of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one.
If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!! ..... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil.
In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger.
You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans ! Another vegetable!!!
It's the best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:

'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention
of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways -
Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and
screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride'


For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health..
It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1.. The Japanese eat very little fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.


Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Abnormal Weather Condition

The state of the weather here in the city is very unusual these days. It is no longer the typical summer then comes the rainy season. It was hot sunny yesterday morning then in the afternoon heavy rain fell at 2:00pm. It stopped at 4:00pm then came a heavy rainfall again at night. Unpredictable and abnormal weather :( I am just thankful to have a good health state or else I will be susceptible to cough or flu. I think the climate change reflects the abnormal variations in the world today and there are many factors that attribute the present weather condition.

The Idols are Here

I am a fan of the American Idol last season finalists David Cook and David Archuleta. They are here in the Philippines to perform a concert tomorrow and been the entertainment headlines in television for the past days. How I wish I could watch their live performances. I never missed watching their episodes last season and both of them were fantastic singers. But I am head over heels for David Cook. :D :D.. He is just so talented and really used his potentials in singing that brought him to stardom. Aside from this he is a hard-to-get, good-looking guy (gwapo). Since I have office work and I cannot see Cook's live show guesting on TV today, I requested my bro to record it for me. I am excited to write this blog post about him as one of his avid fan. Good Luck in your Philippine concert.

Scenic Sunday---Lonesome Hut

Scenic Sunday

It was rainy in most days of the week and while on my way home, I took a picture of this hut left on the side of the road. This might be an abandoned small shelter for dwelling but it looked like not destroyed even if it was left behind. A lonesome hut that stands against the test of the rain and sun. It wont get lonesome just for today because the hut is the star of my scenic Sunday. :)

SkyWatch on Friday

This is an aerial shot of Davao City taken by my sis during her flight just recently. A great view of the city from 20,000+ elevation. The quarry site, highways and rivers look like veins as seen from top. Sky watching on board a plane is a wonderful chance to see the beauty of nature and its landscapes.

Watery Wednesday

I am blessed with the abundant supply of water at home. So i took a picture of this faucet in the lavatory sink to be part of my watery Wednesday blog. The continued sustenance of water in my daily living is a proof of the unending prosperity in whatever challenges i am doing in life. It is also a reminder to value and conserve water as a fluid necessary to sustain our lives. P.S. ..when i took this picture, i already paid my water bill due for this month. :)

Perfume and Me

Image is everything and I always like to smell good. Wearing perfume creates that special confidence on myself and affects my mood and character in many different ways. My favorite perfume now is the Green Tea Scent Spray Eau Parfumee Vaporisateur by Elizabeth Arden that I got online . This is an all around perfume for me because I can wear it for any occasion. The smell of the green tea creates a calming and soothing feeling. It has a light fresh fragrance that is perfect for my daily activity. It can even lasts day long with just a single spray and that makes it budget friendly.
