What You Need To Consider When Hiring A Housekeeper

The first thing you need to think about when you are hiring a maid for your home is your own expectations for the maid’s duties. You should compile a list of what exactly it is that you expect from the maid, as well as sorting the list by task priority. You also need to think about WHY you want domestic help in your home. Doing this will allow you to compare your list to the list of services offered by the different agencies in your area and weeding out the ones that don’t fit the bill of what you expect. If you are choosing among different maids from the same agency, show your list to the agency manager and let them make a few suggestions for you so that the choosing will go a lot easier for you.

Double and Triple Check Credentials

If you are already looking at a particular Filipino maid agency you really need to double check their credentials to make sure that they are legitimate. The last thing you need is to be stuck with an agency that is trying to cheat you out of money in the form of fees and extra wages. A good way to make sure that you are with an agency that is actually good at what they do is to ask for referrals from your friends and your family. It is actually very easy to start a maid agency. There is not much work involved, so there are a lot of these agencies all over the country. Make sure you pick one or two that are respected, have a reputation in the community for good services, and are popular enough to be the first pick for a lot of people.

What Nationality Should You Get?

The nationality of the maid at the Filipino maid agency might vary from maid to maid. You can’t expect them to all be of the same race, religion and from the same country. You are now going to be presented with a whole new dilemma. What nationality should you get? It’s like the agency is a mall and you have to select one store out of ten. Think about their interests, religious beliefs, morals and compare them to yours.

This is more important when the housemaid is going to be living with you. It is best not to have someone whose beliefs clash with yours. The last thing you want is to have your organs harvested at 2 a.m. for the nightly prayers to the Dark Lord Cthulhu.

Things To Consider When Opening A Pub

Opening a business in the food and beverages industry is a very complicated thing. There are so many things to consider and many things to sort out before you start a business. Opening a pub is also not a walk in the park. There are many things to consider before starting a pub. If you are considering to open a pub here are few important things to consider.
Do you have knowledge of running a pub?
Doing any type of a business requires a certain amount of knowledge and experience. Without it the business is going to fail. Most of us think we can start the business and then learn how to do it eventually. But the problem here is that you need to run the business properly to earn money and make profit. When running a pub there are many things to learn. First is to do a business plan. You need to decide what type of a bar and pub you want to run. A vintage style or a modern rooftop bar. Whatever you decide, you need to know the basic concepts of running a pub. The types of alcohol, the amounts, how to mix them etc. Although you can get a bartender you need to have the knowledge as well.

Do you have enough money to start a pub?
This is the million dollar question when starting any business. Starting a bar is more expensive than starting any other food and beverage business. Mostly because you need to get liquor license, you need to keep a stock of alcohol and the venue. You cannot start a pub just anywhere. You cannot do a home based pub. You need to select a suitable venue where it will be profitable. A rooftop bar in Singapore of a night club or a business area would cost money and it will not be easy to maintain as well. Or if you get a space near a busy office area so that people can come after work it will be expensive too. You need to research the venues and the rent for the venues and then start thinking of how to raise funds to achieve that.
Do you have the license to run a pub?
When you are thinking of starting a pub and bar. You need to get the liquor license. This will take a while because the authorities have to check out the area that you intend to open the pub and if the pub will disturb the neighbors. You are not allowed to open pubs in residential areas as it may be very disturbing during the night.
