During His Navy Years

My husband was in the navy.  He said one of the things that a lot of military units do is make coins with the unit logo and motto, some are simply metal coins and sometimes they will be in the units “colors.”  He was telling me of an army tradition where if you have a unit coin and are ask to produce it if you are in a bar, you will have to produce it or buy a round of drinks.  This kind of makes the coin challenge coins.  When he was working with army units, he would always make sure he had that unit’s coin with him (if one had been presented to him).  Now we are looking to display the various coins he obtained in his navy years.  They are very nice and my daughters keep on asking to have their own.

Much More Preferable

Just about everybody I know has a business card. I have seen a wide variety of designs and some I really like and some a just simple. I have even been in restaurants where they have business card drawing to win a free lunch. Even some of my friends who are not currently working have a business card. I was thinking of designing one of my own to pass out to friends and acquaintances. I have looked around and found a source for cheap business cards printing. I know my husband could have used this when he was an office manager. Having a professionally business card is much more preferable than having one made on a laser or ink jet printer. What do you think?

For Business Operations

My sister and her husband have a small printing business that they run. They really could use a better way to track orders and their clients. The main focus of their business is for creating hard copy business forms, such as receipts and invoice forms. They have been doing this for a few years and business has been steady but I believe a workflow dashboard would really help them with their business operations. The better you are able to track orders and customers, the better you are able to meet their needs. Instead of doing things on a simple spreadsheet, I think they would be better served by using tools that meet their business needs.

If I Would Open A Restaurant

Our neighbor used to have a small cafeteria nearby but they stopped the operation because the concentrated of the restaurant that her daughter put up. It is a corporation so they had a high hope to succeed but later I heard that the restaurant went down and they decided to shut it down. I was surprised because when I talked to the neighbor before, they are positively looking forward for the success of the business, they were even so eager and so excited with the whole plan but the restaurant unexpectedly made some lose and so the head stated it for bankruptcy.

I also want to have my own restaurant, but maybe first thing I would do is to promote it before it opens. I will hire somebody to do a flyer printing for me; I wanted to have the coolest layout so the customers would be curious what we can offer. I can suggest but of course I would leave it to the designer, besides they are the expert when it comes to imagining and creating the best graphics ever, and I am sure they could come out a flyer that would stand out among others. So that would be it and during the launching, we could offer free rice for the 10 customers who will order our special recipe.

I guess our neighbor and her daughter were lacking promotions when they open their restaurant and so since it started with very low income, it went through and through that later they were not able to cope up anymore.
