Celebrating Each Milestone with Rewards

I own a small company that employees around 60 people at any given time. The majority of my workers are full time and permanent, but we do have interns and temp workers as well. While I do appreciate all that my full time permanent workers do, I also appreciate my interns and temp workers just as much. Not long ago, I was looking online at a corporate gift company in Singapore, trying to find some ideas on some neat gift items for everyone because of a goal that we reached together.

It was not a major goal that was going to put us on the international map, but it was a goal that was going to help us continue to grow. I wanted us to celebrate the small milestones as well, because we are going to see a lot more of those than the bigger ones. It is because of those small milestones that the big ones are even possible, and I just wanted to reward everyone for a job well done. I looked around the site, trying to find something that I thought everyone would like. I decided to get a few different things since the prices are so low.

The first thing I got was tee shirts that they can wear any day of the week. I am not big on a strict dress code, and I knew that the majority of them would like this. I also got them some neat things for their desks since the majority of them work at one nearly their entire work day. I was able to order four different items, and the price was quite reasonable for what I ordered. I had one of the floor managers help me pass them out, then we all had a pizza party for lunch that day. Yes, celebrating these small milestones will definitely help us reach our bigger goals.

Finding an Apartment for My Brother

My brother moved in with us. He is a nice guy, but he is too laid back about staying at places. He does not think that he might be messing up another family’s routine. My wife and I both love him, but he has quirks that neither one if us have. The kids treat him like he is one of their peers. They do not mind having him around. Our goal was to get him out on the weekend looking at apartments in Alamo Heights area.

He had the money to move. He just did not have the motivation. He would give us money for staying at our place. We did not want it, but he would leave it around. I found rent money in my sock drawer. I asked him why he was in my sock drawer. He told me to leave me rent money to find since I was not accepting it when he tried to give it to us. He did not think anything about going into the drawers in our bedroom to leave the money. He would not ever bother anything, it was just weird. Yes, my wife and I are a little stuffy when it comes to that stuff, but he is very open about it. He once told me I could borrow a pair of underwear from him when most of mine were in the dryer and I had to leave for a business trip. Nice he offered but weird.

We found him one of the nicer apartments in Alamo Heights area. It has a fitness center and a pool for his workouts. He likes to stay in shape. Plus, he could finally adopt a dog. We are not into pets, but my brother has been talking about adopting a dog from a shelter for two years now. He has been with us for about six months. It was time for him to move, and he said he really liked the apartment. It has a fireplace, a nice kitchen, hardwood floors and big closets to store all his junk. He will be very happy.

To Buy a House or Rent?

These days that question is being answered by more and more Americans easily and the choice has been to rent. Most would have you believe it is because of the recession, mortgage lenders or the housing bust but in reality there has been a shift in attitudes away from home ownership to easier apartment living. No matter what city you live in all you have to do is open a paper or search thin internet be overwhelmed by ad copy such as apartments for rent in Denver CO because there has been a quiet building boom but houses weren’t being built, apartment communities were.

Where there was a glut of apartments in the late 90’s/early 2000’s now it’s getting harder to find apartments so many new communities are being built. The older styled box apartment communities are also seeing a rejuvenation to be brought up to today’s ideal standards Americans are looking for. Apartment communities aren’t just a temporary place to live while saving for a house anymore they have become a lifestyle for many Americans and for good reason. Whereas before these apartment communities only offered 4 wall a launderette and a pool now they offer a true experience with restaurants, shopping and essential services right outside your front door.

Owning your own home is nice but it also comes with a huge responsibility and that property value can drop at any time and you could be stuck holding the bag on a mortgage that is worth more than the property. Add in maintenance, insurance and day to day expenses and you can start to see why apartment living is doing much more than making a comeback, it’s becoming the new normal. Apartment communities are offering much more bang for the buck these days and they know they have to because there is so much competition and this makes it an ideal situation for the renter.

Top Prices for Scrap Iron

I am trying to clean up my dad’s house and his yard and stuff, but I am going to have a lot of work ahead of me to make it look nice. My dad passed away recently and so we are trying to get his property into a condition where we will be able to sell it. Right now I am checking out scrap iron per pound prices to see how much we could sell a few thousand pounds of scrap iron for. I am sure that it isn ot worth all that much, because I do not think it is very valuable. But at the same time, it might at least be worth our time during this cleaning project.

My father pretty much has his own junk yard in the back yard of his house. It is kind of embarrassing. I mean I know he was keeping a lot of these things for various reasons, but I don’t think that it was necessary for him to collect as much junk as he did. It is certainly going to be a lot of work to get rid of all of this stuff, but I think that it will be worth it, when everything is said and done.

Anyway, I want to finish up with this whole project as fast as I can because working on it is causing me to think about my dad too much and that is making me kind of sad. I did not think that I would have such emotional issues while doing this, but I guess I underestimated the strength of the emotions at play here. It is oing to be harder to move on from this loss than I thought, but I know that I can do it with enough time and all of that.
