No matter how small the business may be, it is very important to have an insurance business may seem to slow or maybe at its peak and may even reach a certain point of almost giving up, but a business insurance will secure its existence. If a calamity strikes and business is hit, the insurance will definitely cover the amount of goods. As a business owner, I would really want to have my small business insured. It is a worthwhile investment and that would also make my clients feel more secure that the goods I am selling are for real and not just any joke at all.
I am not sure if I already mentioned it here. I started an online business less than a month ago. My sister is into online selling since late last year. I and Ace are usually in tow when she and BIL buy her stocks. From our frequent trips to the surplus warehouse, hubby accumulated almost a hundred diecast miniature toy cars.
I got more than a couple of Pyrex bowls, more than a dozen My Little Pony, and a lot more…for our personal “consumption”. Then suddenly one day I woke up to the thought of starting my own online store. I brought out my ponies, took a photo of it and posted it in Instagram with the caption “They need a new home! Take all for Php1,500.”
An online friend said she’ll get it so I already have a sure buyer!haha. With the price I am offering, it’s really a steal! These My Little Pony costs around 300-500 each in the stores. Then two more friends are interested so I thought “why not go online selling then?” I was thinking about the whole day and woke up determined that I wanted to try this venture. Dear sister is supportive and doesn’t take my interest with online selling a threat to her business. The husband is even more supportive. So instead of putting my money to stock investment, I got some packed toys during our visit to the warehouse and got this battalion of authentic TY Beanie Baby.
A couple of days after uploading to my online store account in Facebook, a friend bought ALL for a steal. I am still learning the trade and don’t know how to reasonably price my merchandise so I have to ask my sister ALL-THE-TIME.
The other night, I had my 4th upload and it was a success! I am so delighted that people I don’t really know find their way to Cutesy Patootie – my online store, and end up buying some stuff. I am so grateful!
Now I am juggling between an online worker, a blogger, an online seller, and a wife! My store is still small though and inventory is still manageable. But I am hoping mine and my sister’s business will grow bigger. By then we would probably need a software that hubby mentioned to be using when he was still working with a pharmaceutical distributor like dallas quickbooks for inventory and financial help. Heard from a friend in San Antonio about san antonio quickbook that she got for her online venture too. I am not really familiar with it but hubby is. So might as well ask him to walk me through quickbooks for our small business.
Need to hurry, by the way. If you haven’t dropped by our store yet, please click on the link above.
Technology is constantly in the process of improving upon and replacing itself. Nowhere is this made clearer than in faxing technology.
First commercially introduced in Paris in the year 1865, the "Telefax" has been used in society ever since. The first satellite photo was sent over fax in the 1960s, and by 1970s companies were using fax machines worldwide. These fax machines were bulky and requires the use of a telephone line, paper, cartridges, and other consumables. In short, fax machines were clunky, hungry beasts.

With the birth of the Internet, fax technology underwent a renovation. Now, faxes can be sent over the Internet with nothing more than a computer or even a Smartphone.
How to Fax Documents Online
Scan the document into your computer, or take a picture of it with your Smartphone.
Use one of the many online fax services available. These services convert the document into TIFF or JPEG format.
The document–now an image–is sent off into cyberspace on its journey to the recipient.
The recipient receives the emailed fax and reads your message. If they decide to print it off, they can, or simply view it as a digital image. If it is a document they need to sign and return, such as a contract, they can have it printed, signed, and returned. They’ll simply repeat the process: scan, convert, and send.
Savings for the Company
There are many benefits to using online fax services. For one, the fax machines of yesteryears are no longer needed. This means that businesses who made the smart move of using Internet faxing save themselves money on fax machines, ink, paper, telephone bills, and installation and maintenance fees.
Online fax services are priced reasonably, usually only few dollars per month. If you sign up for one of the online fax services that charges for additional faxes over the monthly limit, the price is just pennies.
