Small Business in Mind

I love living here in Bukidnon; the fresh air, the nice scenery of the mountains, plus the clan is here too. It may be a small town; no malls or gigantic building just like in an urban area, but we can get what we need here because of the small businesses around.

We have a wet and dry market, pharmacy, a grocery store, bakeshop, and even a hardware store; where you can buy these ball joints that you will need for your project.

I’ve been also thinking of putting up my own business here. Would a spa be nice in our town? How about a pet shop? Well, whatever business it would be, I’m sure people around here will patronize it.

Shopping for Fire Extinguishers

Every January, business owners in here and I guess in most places in the Philippines will be very busy renewing their business permits. One of the requirements is the signature of the Municipal Fire Marshall.

Of course the Fire Marshall will not just sign your papers, they will check your building and all the necessary requirements including the right pieces of fire extinguishers and fire exits that are needed. Some big building are required to put a fire hose. And because I own a little business, I needed to have fire extinguishers and I have been shopping in some stores in the city. It is quite hard to compare prices because we only have one store in the City. My uncle is looking for fire hoses for his 5 story building and I told him that he can check out that fire hose from RawhideFirehose.com  before buying from other stores.

Moreover, if you have Fire Extinguishers, you need to shake it once in awhile because if you will not shake it there is a tendency that the chemical inside it will not be as effective as it is when it was bought.

Tips on buying a Home

There are so many tips and tricks in buying a home or selling them. I have not tried buying my own home but I have helped some people who are close to me, chose their home from among the many choices we had in our life right now. I have a friend who needed a rest house somewhere in the province and I was able to ask some of my colleagues if they got one for her. Luckily, there are so many choices. One choice was a rest house which is far from the noises of the streets and yet it is accessible by cars. Another one is a home near the town but still there are no neighbouring houses which can distract my friend during their vacation.

How you choose your house depends on your needs. There are people who want their houses to be near their office or work place as to avoid getting late to work. There are also people who want to have peace during night time that is why they want to avoid living near the national road or highways because it can disrupt their sleeping time. There are so many available choices nowadays and you can even check out Kansas City homes for sale if you are living near this area. Your choice for a home might be on the homes listed for sale.

The best thing to remember I think when you are planning to buy your own home is that you should make a list of what you really want in your home and where does it need to be for you to be comfortable in your way of life.
