Work, Fun and Fitness

I don’t know about you, but for me it is very important that I can de-stress and relax, especially after a long and stressful week.  Just sitting back and watching TV on the other hand is not my idea of how I can get back some of the energy I feel I lost. I am one of those guys who needs to do something, like walking or pursuing a hobby that can me help relax.

This is when I got interested to check into fitness studios and how they can help me with “actively” relaxing. Fortunately, some of the gyms here in East London offer courses like Yoga, martial arts or Pilates. Yoga isn’t really “my thang” and neither is Pilates, so I signed up for a Judo class at a gym here in Hackney.

I have to say that it wasn’t exactly easy to find a good gym in Hackney where they also had Judo classes, it took me a while until I found a gym I liked here in my area.

How about you? What do you do when you want to de-stress and want to keep your mind of things in your free time? Do you like to simply relax or are you like me and want something more exciting?

How Export Software Helped Me With My Business

Life can sometimes get quite hectic and stressful if you’re a business owner. I know because I experienced this first hand! My business started out as a small one but I quickly found myself overwhelmed once I got more orders than I was able to satisfy in a reasonable time.

small-business-export-softwareAs you can imagine, for a retail or online business owner, nothing is more important than being able to fulfill your customer’s requests and orders as fast possible.

Any delay, any hold-up can quickly bite you in the behind and seriously damage your business’ reputation: Of course, if customers won’t get their merchandise reasonably fast they will simple go to the competition instead rather than putting up with delays!

This is especially a problem when you deal with international customers since no-one like to wait, no matter whether they’re half a world away!

I was fortunate enough that Jerry told me about how export software helped him with his sports merchandise business. He showed me the numbers and most importantly how the software also helped him to dramatically cut shipping costs. (If you know about international shipping you will understand!). So I got myself the same export software package as Jerry used and can’t be happier. I could finally fulfill my orders a lot quicker – delays and hold-ups, especially at customs due to missing papers and documents are now a thing of the past too!

If you have a business where you deal with shipping, especially internationally, I highly recommend that you look into export software. It can be a life-saver no matter how big your company is. The benefits can be dramatic especially if your company is  small!
