The Most Beautiful Video Proposal

When my son proposed to his girlfriend, it was the most creative proposal I had ever seen. He told me he got the idea from social media, as he had seen a video of someone from a different country propose in the same manner. He really liked it, and he decided that he was going to surprise his girlfriend in the same way. He had to first find a Singapore video production company that would be able to create the perfect video for him. He works in a cinema and got special permission from his boss to show the video on one of the screens before the main film started.

The company he hired to create the perfect video for him did just that. Continue reading “The Most Beautiful Video Proposal”

Products Can Be Made of Hundreds of Parts and Any One of Them Can Become a Problem

It takes thousands of hours to develop a product. You can have technicians on your team that are the best at what they do, and you can still end up with one annoying under-performing design on one part that can ruin a product. We have a reputation in our product industry of providing top quality products. However, a single rubber seal on the window of one product was leaking. We contacted a company that does epdm sponge rubber bulb trim seals to look a the design and make improvements. Not only that, the company knew what global manufacturers to use to make the new seal.

Consumers of the products we make do not know what goes into making them. And, I suppose, they should not have to. They are just paying for a product that works. We analyzed the chemical composition of the failed seals with samples that are intact. Continue reading “Products Can Be Made of Hundreds of Parts and Any One of Them Can Become a Problem”

The Oasis of Cooling off

I own a shop that sells smoothies to everyone in the community. I started the business 5 years ago to a slow start, but now everyone comes to me for a cool drink, even in the winter. Summer is almost here, and I may need to get repairs to my HVAC in NYC because the air conditioner has been acting strange. The customers will come to me when they want to escape the heat, and I can’t have them sweating and their drinks melting while they are trying to cool down. The customers might look for somewhere else to cool off.

I have some new flavors that I want to try out on the customers this summer. Most people are used to the standard fruits in their smoothies, like strawberries, bananas, oranges, pineapples, and occasionally blueberries. Continue reading “The Oasis of Cooling off”

Chagoury is the Real Deal

I’m an expat, British by birth, who lives in Nigeria. I met Ronald chagoury many years ago and my initial impression of him has stood the test of time. He is a great guy who is spending his life trying to improve the lives of all Nigerians. It is more than I can say for many people who visit this beautiful country and then proceed to take something out of it without giving back. That is not Ronald Chagoury.

When I first came to this city, I wasn’t that impressed with it. This was a time when Nigeria was having a lot of economic problems and you could see it everywhere you looked. The city needed a serious makeover. Enter Ronald and his real estate acumen. The guy knows how to get things done, and done quickly. He is a human dynamo. He has been involved in so many big deals in this country. Continue reading “Chagoury is the Real Deal”

Started to Work on Our App

We have just started work on an app development project, although obviously we are not going to be able to do the job in house. Instead we are looking for someone who can collaborate with us closely. The first people we talked to about the job was an app developer in Singapore, but that just did not seem practical. Of course you can go on various video chat apps and talk to the guy face to face, but we really did not see that this was going to work. We are looking for something that works in a very specific way and has a direct link with our clients, who are contractors. Continue reading “Started to Work on Our App”

More People Can Make Great Websites Now Than Ever Before

I used to be called upon by people wanting an inexpensive website. I would help them get started and show them how to continue on their own. I discovered that most people were not interested in educating themselves on what they needed to know to manage their websites. They wanted one, they wanted it cheap, and they wanted someone to take care of the whole thing for them. Well, you cannot have all that and have it be inexpensive. For those who really did want a website they could manage content on, I liked it when cPanel server management was more widely available. To just point and click your way through tasks that used to require knowledge of Linux command line codes is a whole lot easier.

I still have some people that want me to do everything from build the site to creating content. I cannot do that cheaply. Continue reading “More People Can Make Great Websites Now Than Ever Before”
