It is not the greatest job in the world, in essence I am just a drone working at something that is called a fulfillment center. This is how it works, when you order something on the internet the order does not always go to the place where you bought it from. That is something that requires an infrastructure and it requires payroll. You need people and you need a system, for example one of our clients makes stuff like natural deodorant in Canada along with some other organic products like sunscreen. It is not a big company and it would be expensive for them to dedicate the money and resources to pack up and ship out their products. Of course the fact that they are in Canada is a complicating factor as well. At any rate they find it both cheaper and less irksome to pay this company to do that stuff. In fact you could literally run a web page that sells things, while doing almost none of the work on your own. It is foolish to handle the credit card processing on your own, you do not want to be liable for the private information involved.
At any rate this is not a good job in any way. The really annoying thing is the part where they make you go through security every time you go in or out of the place. This is not on the clock it would seem and every one of us is very unhappy about this. Over the course of the week it probably adds up to around four or five hours, which would be a bit of money if you were being paid. Of course if I were going to steal something from the place I would just ship it out in one of the boxes.
There are three different ways a person can set up a business here in Singapore. The first is as a private limited company, the second is as a limited liability partnership, and the third is a a sole owner of the business. I knew that I needed to learn all about company incorporation in Singapore and determine which of the three that I wanted to have for my own company. That meant going online and finding a company that helps other companies get set up, so I would know exactly which route was better for me.
The first thing I did was learn about the three different incorporation types. I knew immediately that I did not want the limited liability partnership, because that was not retaining complete control. I knew that it would be riskier for myself, but I just did not want to have any partners, even if I had the majority of control. I wanted all of it, so I moved on to the private limited company. While this was better, it was still not what I wanted, which is why I settled on the sole proprietorship. This was not only the riskiest but also the simplest to set up.
The next thing I did was look at the different packages that this company has for starting companies. There is a lot of paperwork involved, and I knew that I needed this help. I was happy when I saw that I would just need the Quickstart package, which was the least expensive one for me. I would get the help that I needed with the initial setup, including having my company name reserved, the fee paid, my profile and constitution for my company done, and more. I am glad I did such careful research, because I got the best company to do this for me at a very reasonable rate.
It’s getting to be summertime again soon and that means trips to the pool for myself and my daughter. I already started looking for laser hair removal in Singapore because the bathing suits are getting pretty ridiculous. While I’m no prude and not tied to the idea of going to the pool dressed in a one piece, or some sort of bathing dress women used to wear back in the 1920s for that matter, I still want myself and my daughter to look good. Unfortunately both of us have been cursed with an abundance of unsightly body hair thanks to bad genes.
There’s nothing worse than going out in the sun in a bathing suit with unsightly hair. It’s horrifying actually. I don’t like seeing it on other people so of course both myself and my daughter plan to do something about it. I looked around online for a solution and noticed pretty quickly that the old waxing method seems to have given way to using a laser process to get rid of unseemly hair. This process sounded like a great idea as the wax method really is unpleasant and causes a lot of pain. I used to dread going in for one of those treatments.
So we found a place that does this stuff and made appointments. I have to say technology is wonderful. I didn’t feel any pain at all. My daughter said she felt some quick twinges but that they weren’t painful in the least. I can also say this treatment seems to do a better job. There are no red marks at all after having it done. We’re now both ready to hit the pool and enjoy the sun. I’m not looking for a skimpier swimsuit, but I’m not dreading at all wearing the one that I picked out!
I do business in Singapore and eventually decided to employ the services of foto88 corporate gifts as I felt I wasn’t promoting my business properly. You can do business anywhere in the world, and many things can be different, but in the end you still need to get the word out about your company. You can advertise through the media, of course, but that can be expensive and time consuming and it doesn’t always work especially if you’re operating in a foreign country and don’t understand the culture as well as you should. I chose a more traditional route.
What I chose to do is use gifts. We’ve all seen them in America and other places. It’s where you get pens with your company’s name on them, or stuffed animals, or binders, or coolers. There are many trinkets and items you can buy with your company’s name and/or logo on them that helps promote your business to other companies and consumers. The company I went with offers a huge assortment of items you can give away, and it’s not an expensive process at all. I went with some pens, of course, but also some clothing and memory sticks.
I give them away to anyone who comes in to do business with me, and I also leave them around the city so people can grab them for free. It’s always fun to see someone in the street wearing a hat with your logo on it. You would think people would be used to getting this stuff and not think much about it, but you’re wrong. I always get a smile when I give someone one of these items. People like to get free stuff even if they don’t seem to have a use for it. I’ve noticed sales going up since I’ve started using these items.
