You look around at all the conveniences we enjoy these days and it’s hard to imagine where all the time goes. A lot of people keep food journals and things like that so I decided, just as an experiment, to keep a time journal.
We’ve had a few old warehouses near the city my grandfather built in the 50’s and they’ve provided the family with a modest income for a long time. The decision was made to try and make more of the space but it’s not something we normally have anything to do with. All the people we spoke to encouraged us to get great plans and to hire a really capable and professional commercial construction company.
I am a man who likes to keep their cards close. I work in a very competitive industry and every person who works for me is held to a high degree of loyalty and confidentiality. It is for this reason that I always tread with caution when I approach external parties to assist us in business. Continue reading
We’ve just changed accountants for the first time in a long time. An accountant is kind of like a doctor in that after a while you feel like they know you and your business so well, your history – starting all over seems like a big deal. The truth was, our old accountant had been getting sloppy and we weren’t the priority for him that we expected to be.
All around Sydney flowers are handed out on Birthdays and Valentine’s Day, but do you ever buy someone a bunch of flowers just because? This is the best type of gift to give and the best to receive.
Have you heard the term OH&S being thrown around the workplace and wondered what on earth was being spoken about? I’ll tell you because if you are a worker in any capacity you need to know. OH&S stands for occupational health & safety and encompasses the work safety and work practice procedures and regulations across all of Victoria.
I am a bit of a collector of vintage items and antique objects, I like to keep them and watch them increase in value over time. I have always found that the best way to hold on to my second hand salvations is keep in them in storage where they can remain safe and out of the way.
My only problem in the past was having to travel far to put my items under lock and key but that was before I discovered the convenient self storage St Kilda side, right around the corner from my home.
It has made my life so much easier, after a bargain hunt I usually have to waste my weekend driving to and from my storage and unit and now I just stop by my self storage St Kilda space on my way home. If you want easier and closer access to your belongings this is where I found it http://www.discountcityselfstorage.com.au/.
Every year around this time we start getting new bikes coming into the shop without always the space to put them. We have big sales and try to move all the old stock but it’s obviously pretty essential to have somewhere safe and secure to store bikes off site. Some people are lucky and have a massive warehouse but we’re pretty tight on space which is just the price you pay for being a small operation in the inner city. Some of our bikes retail at over 10k so it’s fair to say we need to feel comfortable about where we store them.
Guardian Storage have been great over the last few years for storage in Melbourne. They give us the confidence to leave a stack of bikes there for as long as we need to and know that everything will always be exactly how we left it. The peace of mind is indispensible.
