Run my own store?

So I’ve started another Plan B strategy.  This time I hope it lasts (and works!)  The good thing is that I have been buying the product for over 2 years now and continue to like the products.  So now it’s building up a business and get to the stage where I can possibly apply to have my own store.  The business plan use to be very difficult to understand but apparently it will become easier after 1 August 2011.  I joined last Monday and will be going back to the Hurstville store to get more advice from Diana how to run the business and generate some business.

Apparently if I build the business well, I can apply to open my own store which in itself will build volume and revenue.  Maybe in about 12 months time when things stabilise I may be in that position.  The other good thing is that the business is about to go to China  and Colombia and Brazil.  It’s already in the US and UK and I think in Canada too. 

I’ll be selling some of my initial purchases on ebay.com.au as that’s how I got introduced to their products in the first place when I bought a water filter – as it was one of the best options to remove fluoride from drinking water*.

The business sells a range of products from cleaning products, food, cosmetics, undergarments (!), kitchen gadgets and pseudo (?) health benefit products (I’ll probably review a few of these as I have my doubts but then have seen some good results from various special bracelet type things which have helped arthritis). 

Some of the products I have been (repeat) buying are the water filter, the 3 in 1 coffee, the chilli shrimp paste and some of the cleaning products.

* if you want to know why I don’t want my drinking water with any fluoride or you want to read more about the debate here’s a link to wikipedia about the controversy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_fluoridation_controversy

**  I just read the T&Cs from the company and have removed reference to the company name at this stage.

Fitness Passport membership locations on a map

My Fitness Passport membership is now live!  Woohoo!  So I get access to a heap of gyms and pools and classes.  For someone who isn't interested in a gym membership I'm not quite sure why I have joined!!  Peer pressure. I'm very fortunate that I have the opportunity to join this type of membership as then I can go just about anywhere in NSW.  The membership site gives you a list of them but I had no idea how close they would be to either work or home so I copied and pasted the details into a Google Sheet and then put them in a Google Map.  I thought it may be useful for others too. You can access the map by this link too:  ​ https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=10hH5PtKlBzeEzV6AoLev4vxqNoDxzR6y&hl=en&usp=sharing

Magic Mirror - IKEA frame hack

Somehow I stumbled on the Magic Mirror project and of course I wanted to build it.  Forget that I was in the middle of another mirror project (still not finished) but this one is now built! Here is the finished product (still a bit messy as I put a small console type table under the mirror):  The console table was added... as I needed to hide the power point from my dogs who like munching on power cables if too accessible.  Before I mounted it on the wall I had it propped up on a dining room chair...  There are plenty of resources on how to get the magic mirror tech side of things done.  The key resource is the Magic Mirror site: https://magicmirror.builders/   I've also used Google a lot and Jayen helped me a lot too on various bits and pieces.   The main thing that is different is the way I put the frame/mirror component together.  Here are the high level details (oxymoron?): 1. bought mirror tint from Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/50x100cm-W

Trip to Kenta

Had lunch with Nikki at Kenta on Thursday 29 Dec 2005. Food was OK, but definitely cheap! Good value. I had the sashimi lunch set which included sashimi, salmon salad, rice and miso soup. Was very full! Meal was approx $10 - $11... here's a pic of what I ate. Nikki had the teriaki chicken and calamari rings meal. That looked good too. And someone at a table next to us had a soft shell crab tempura set. Oooh if only I spotted that :)
