Bakflip: A Good Partner In Business

During the year 2009, my brother and I have started to conceptualize on putting up a resale business (delivery) of school and office supplies. And as we have already had a good number of prospective clients, it seems that we will be in for a good run.

The thoughts and the ideas are sometimes easy to come by. However, the hard part comes with the actual setting up of the business, including the equipments that we need to purchase.

One good example is the plan to buy a delivery service vehicle. I wanted us to buy a delivery truck, but my brother is encouraging me that a pick up truck is much better. He advised me that we really don't need a big truck just at the moment since we are just starting out with the business. But then, purchasing a pick up truck would mean that we still have to modify it by purchasing a durable tonneau cover. Tonneaou covers are more popularly known as truck bed or pickup bed covers.

Tonneau covers are extremely useful on our planned business because we are delivering goods that require extra care from rain, dust, etc. We have asked some friends, and they recommend a Bakflip pickup cover. Sure enough, when I tried browsing in the internet, I read that there are a lot of good, positive comments about bakflip covers.

Well, there are still a lot more to do and prepare for our business. It is our hope that everything will work out just fine for it.

Going Organic

Going organic is definitely the "in" thing these days, as people are starting to become more health-conscious with what they do, what they wear, and what they eat.

This is actually due to the fact that people are concerned with the many new diseases and ailments caused about by the chemicals that are unconciously being taken into our bodies along with our food.

How does this happen? Well, due to advanced science and technology, researchers and scientiests are finding ways to speed up the growth process of our farm animals. This involves giving them chemicals and other artificial nutrients. With this, when the meat are converted for our food consumption, there are big chances that we also intake the chemicals into our body system.

As a result, negative reactions happen inside our bodies, and may cause development of disease and sickness.

But the good thing is, as I have mentioned on my first line, people are becoming more health-conscious and are now choosing organic vegetables, organic fruits, and organic meats for their food choices. This way, there little chances that harmful chemicals are being taken into their body systems.

For example, there are now certain farms that grow animals (like beef, cattle and poultry) the "organic" way. This means that they are providing natural lifestyles or habitat to the animals, and that they allow them to grow in using the natural life cycles. This ensures that the final consumers who buy the meat products are safe from unconsciously taking artificial chemicals and substances in their bodies.

It is about time that all of us consider going organic in our own lifestyles. This is good for the environment; and this is definitely good for all of us.

Are You Insured Yet?

One of the best things that you can get when you are regularly employed with a good company is that the company gives you better benefits than when you are just a casual or contractual employee.

In our company for instance, we started to receive clothing allowance, rice allowance last year. These are in addition to the basic 13th month pay that we regularly receive yearly as mandated by law.

This year, talks have it that our company might provide Life Insurance benefit to all regular employees who have been with the company for at least 5 years. This is actually a very good benefit considering that some of sectors in our company are having a bit of high risk jobs because they are working outside of the office in the streets most of the time. In the unlikely event that something happens to an employee, the Life Insurance will be there to ensure that the surviving immediate family gets some financial aid and benefits.

Employees do have high hopes that the company will push this thru, especially now that the Administration Group and the Human Resource Group who are in-charge of this issue are now starting to ask for Life Insurance Quotes from different insurance companies. We all hope that before the end of the year, this plan will finally materialize.

A co-employee who used to work in Australia even commented that in there, their company even gives Funeral Insurance to all regular employees. I haven't yet heard of any local company here in our country, but if ours will offer one, then that will surely give all of us a great boost!

After all, we, the employees, are the lifeblood of the business.
