A PDF Invoice Has Many Advantages

For a lot of folks, especially those who own a small business, invoicing is always one of the most tedious and time-consuming tasks. Despite PCs and other electronic gadgets today being found in practically every modern office, a lot of small business owners are still wasting a lot of time with the old-fashioned way of invoicing.

Manually typing down invoice data to transfer it into your accounting system, for instance, isn’t just time-consuming but can also be a very error prone process. Before you know it, someone’s handwriting or a small typo could result in a problem with some serious negative consequences.

Moreover, those who are still doing their invoices the old-fashioned way will in all likelihood also mailed them out by using normal postal mail. In a time where people use emails and instant messaging, arguably an extremely ineffective thing to do.

With PDF invoices, or sometimes called electronic invoicing, all these disadvantages can be addressed.

Let’s start with the fact that a PDF invoice doesn’t require any type of paperwork any longer since both sides were the receiver a defender of invoices can create and send invoices electronically on the Internet. You won’t need to waste hours of typing down information from a paper, because the invoice will immediately be registered your computer system without you having to do anything for it.

In the same way you can also create your invoices on your computer or mobile device. Essentially this means that you wouldn’t even require a physical office any longer because you can do all your invoices from your smart phone, no matter where you are.

Last but not least, PDF invoices don’t require any time from sending them until they are being received. The entire process takes only a minute or two. This means there is no long wait involved and bills can be received and paid instantly.

So if you own a small business and want to know how to save on time, you should definitely give PDF invoices a try!

Moving Tips To Reduce Stress When You Move

Posted by admin on Nov 13, 2015 in Tips

Lifehacker in this very helpful Guide For Moving To A New Place says that “moving sucks” but I want to entirely disagree!

moving-tipsFor me, moving is almost always a very positive thing.

There is nothing more exciting than moving into a new home and then to decide about where to put your furniture, exploring your new neighborhoods or constantly being reminded that your new place is so much better and nicer than the one you had previously.

Moving really only “sucks” if you do it ill-prepared.

Even if you do the majority of moving work yourself, if you take your time and spread it out or invite some friends it can actually be an entertaining and exciting thing to do and of course it will be much less work than doing everything on your own.

My friend Jeff from Removals Bristol gave me the tip to always ask the removal firms what type of packages they offer.

He said “Ask the movers ahead whether they have an “all-in-one” package which normally includes the packing, packing materials and the actual transport and how much it will be if you do the packaging instead. Know that if you do the packing you have to add the costs for materials such as cardboard boxes and wrapping paper! Then, sit down and calculate how much you would save if you pack yourself as compared to if the firm does all this for you.”

The reason Jeff gave me this tip is that the price differences there can be significant. So if you research a bunch of movers several weeks ahead of your move it can be a very good idea!

Last but not least, never let a move stress you out. The better you plan and the more time you take for the move, the higher the chances everything will go smoothly!

Have You Ever Seen the Singing Waiters?

Posted by admin on May 20, 2015 in Entertainment, Tips

Chances are, if you have been to a wedding reception in the last few years you might have seen some of those guys who do what’s known as “surprise entertainment”. The Singing Waiters are probably the most known ones, at least here in the United Kingdom.

“Surprise entertainment” normally means that performers such as musicians or dancers would appear at a party unannounced,  most of the time they are actually dressed as waiters and no one knows that they are present. So every time when they start their show this is always big fun and a huge surprise for all the guests. (Obviously no one expects the waiters to start singing and dancing… and quite exceptionally I’d like to add!!)

This is actually where The Singing Waiters are different compared to some other surprise entertainers. The singing waiters all come from renowned music schools in the UK – this means world-class entertainment!

Yes, the singing waiters can perform the latest hits but they can also sing classical operah pieces! It really depends on the setting of your reception and whether you would like it classy or just for fun. Because they are trained and are  professional singers and dancers, the singing waiters are especially high demand for events such as for corporate entertainment or when folks are looking for something really special for a wedding or party.

The other thing the singing waiters can do is flash mobs. Flash mobs are also surprise entertainment but they are often done in public, a lot of times actually with many performers! Flash mobs are great for if you really want to draw attention and look for some cool way to do PR, say for your company or organisation. There are also great if you want to really surprise someone at a place where they don’t expect that all – that’s why flash mobs are the best thing for occasions like wedding proposals!

So are so, whether it’s for a wedding or a proposal, the singing waiters will make such an event unforgettable for anyone. I can recommend that you contact them early if you want them because they might be booked out otherwise.

Feng Shui Tips For Boats, Ships & Yachts

Posted by admin on Jul 30, 2014 in Tips

fengshui-coinsThe Form School is a well known school of Feng Shui. This philosophy deals with the energy in a space and how it can be improved by intentional selection and assignment of furniture.

The Form School works not only for homes but can also be applied when it comes to the design for boats and yachts.

Over at The Huffington Post I found some good Feng Shui tips for Yachts and Boats.

There you can learn anything about good Feng Shui for your boat, from proper door alignment to balancing the abundance of water energy that you will find on any boat.

You can also learn about how to design and re-design your boat with suitable accessories. Often, it’s only small things you have to do to balance the energies in your yacht such as placing Chinese coins at spiral cases or spicing things up by placing fresh, red flowers.
