This Recruitment Agency Gives Us the Best Workers

My husband and I started our company nearly eight years ago. We are very successful, and there is a reason for that. We know what we are good at, and we stick to it. There are a lot of things in our business that we rely on others to do, because we know that they are better at it than we are. One of those things is hiring when we need an executive level position filled. We looked into senior marketing recruiters four years ago when we decided to hire a marketing director, and we knew then that we would always go that route when we needed to hire at that level.

For entry level positions, we just rely on our HR department. Continue reading

We Made an App Just for Seniors

The marketing department approached me asking if development of an app would work with our demographic of mostly senior customers. I told them that a few years ago it would have been pointless to try and interest our customers in using an app on their phones. However, even the technology averse seniors are now much more comfortable with using smartphones thanks to the prevalence of social media apps. We probably could benefit by introducing an app for our customers, so I got with a contact I have at to see what all would be involved in developing something useful our customers would like to use.

Making a popular app is all about finding something you can do or provide that other methods do poorly at or are more cumbersome to use. Almost everyone who owns a smartphone or tablet has at least one of the devices close by at all times. Continue reading

Helping People to Understand Dementia is Our Number One Goal

It can be really tough to get the word out about what you do these days. For 15 to 20 years, websites reigned supreme about helping people to learn about what you do. But the online world is a bit more interactive now, and people do not want to spend a lot of time searching out lone sites to check out. Many people want to join a small number of social media sites and simply scroll down a page to see interesting content. My agency employed the help of Big 3 Media to create a video that would go viral so that more people would learn about what we do.

Dementia is something that not a lot of people have understood even today. Continue reading

Working on My Anniversary Plans

My wife and I have been married for nearly five years now. We got married right after she and I graduated from McGill in 2011. Of course I have not always done a great job at celebrating our anniversary, but up until now it is not as big of a deal. Of course the big numbers are the ones you need to pay attention to. I was weighing the options, like for instance do you want to splurge on a car limo service or figure out a way around it. The advantages are obvious, you definitely do not want to celebrate your anniversary by getting arrested and thrown in the city jail for driving under the influence. Continue reading

Looking at Buying a House

I have been looking at buying a house for a good while, but up until recently it has not been that likely a prospect simply because I had to save up a lot more money than I had. I got the rest of my money in a rather random way. I was staying at one of the casinos near Niagara Falls on business and someone gave me some casino chips. I got in a poker game and won a great deal of money, simply because the other players were inebriated. I need to find extermination in Montreal near west island if I buy this house that I looked at today. Continue reading

Long-distance Relationships Are Far Easy to Carry out Now

I love my computer and Internet service. I honestly don’t know what I would do without it. With my MSN Hotmail sign in that I have had for about 10 years, I can quick access to information from family and friends every single day of the year, no matter whether it’s 3AM in the morning or a holiday. I remember it was not like that when I was a kid, and it was frustrating.

There used to be a guy that I was in love with during the early eighties. We lived in different states, and as young people, calling one another long distance was not a possibility. We just could not afford it. No one had cell phones. Fifteen minutes on the phone with someone in another state cost so much, and that just wasn’t a logical thing to do when you had to pay for rent, food, transportation, clothing, etc. So, we did the best we could to stay in touch with the help of letters.
