Started From The Bottom: Are You Ready To Take Your Career Into Your Own Hands?

For a lot of people, there is no greater fantasy than that of being able to walk out of their nine-to-five office job for good, telling their boss where to stick it on the way out. Of course, for most people, it remains just that, a fantasy. However, more and more over the last several years, people are beginning to put that kind of thing into practice. Walking out of their jobs working for other people and taking their careers into their own hands. The primary driving force behind this is the internet. Working online allows people to set up their own businesses where they have total control over the way that they work. Of course, that doesn’t mean that any of this is easy. In fact, there are a lot of challenges that you will face starting from the bottom. With that in mind, here are just some of the challenges you will face taking your career into your own hands.

Getting noticed

When you start your own business, unless you’re incredibly lucky, you’re going to be the very smallest fish in a very large pond. This means that getting noticed is not only your number one priority but also your biggest obstacle. You need to do what you can to make your business stand out. This means you need to focus on everything from your web design to the way that you interact with customers on social media to the branding of your business as a whole. Customers should be able to look at your business and know right away what it is that you have to offer them. Life on the internet moves fast, and you need to make an impression as quickly as possible.

Managing yourself

One of the biggest challenges of working for yourself comes on the back of one of the best things about it. When you work for yourself, there’s no one around to tell you what to do, no manager breathing down your neck all day. Now, working from your bed in your pajamas might be fun for the first week or so, but after a while, you will need to start to manage yourself and your time more carefully. Otherwise, you’re going to end up exhausting yourself, and the work that you do will suffer for it. Even when you’re working from home, keeping office hours is a good idea.

Working with others

One of the biggest draws of running your own business is the fact that you have total control of it. However, that doesn’t mean that you can do everything by yourself. In fact, it’s incredibly important that you’re able to reach out to others. There will always be aspects of your business that you need to outsource, and if you can’t work well with others, you’re going to make life incredibly difficult for yourself.

Please don’t think that any of this is some kind of attempt to dissuade you from setting up your own business, far from it. In fact, the more businesses that there are competing out there, the higher quality products for everyone. You simply need to be aware of just how much of a challenge it can be before you start. Otherwise, you’re in for a pretty nasty shock.

Why You Need A Bathroom Remodel

Homeowners and home improvement works go hand in hand. From a new kitchen fitting to a change of decor, there are plenty of options to give your home the extra style and glam you need. However, not all improvement works reflect on your interior style. Some renovation projects are necessary and the natural consequences of your situation. Bathroom renovation, as it is often the case, don’t occur for stylish reasons but in fact for practical matters.  Indeed, as the bathroom is one of the first room to show signs of tear and wear in your home, it’s a room that has to evolve regularly to reflect the current needs of your family.

What’s in your ideal bathroom?

Your plumbing system is old

At the best of time, your bathroom gets used three times a day by everyone in your family. More often than not, people use the bathroom an average 6 to 8 times a day. Ultimately, your fittings go through a lot of pressure as you let the water run, flush down or even empty the bathtub precisely why you should make sure that old fittings are replaced at the first sign of leaks, using either manufacturer parts or a 1-to-1 replacement from Custom Fittings Ltd. Leaking and damaged fittings are the first cause of water infiltration in your walls and floors.   

You’ve outgrown your bathroom

Nothing is as fun as a family bathroom, especially when you first decide to decorate the room for your young children. Except that within a few years’ time, the Disney princesses on the wall might have lost their appeal, and your kids now need more storage room for their bathroom kits. If you’ve first renovated the bathroom with young children in the home, it’s time to consider a remodeling project when you live with teenagers. Additionally, if you’re welcoming a new family member, you might want to consider adding more storage facilities for all.

You need to make it more accessible

Everyone gets old, and gradually the body can lose some of its flexibility and mobility. As a result, if you live with elderly people, you will have to consider remodeling your bathroom to address mobility issues. There’s no point to let your parents struggle to get in the bathtub or even off the toilet when you can improve the design to take their problems into account. A bathtub with an entry door might be a practical solution when your parents can’t climb into the tub anymore. Or for additional safety, you can add an alarm cord so that they can raise your attention if they need support.  

You want to add value to your home

If you’re looking to sell your home, a bathroom remodel can significantly improve your chances of attracting buyers and receiving advantageous offers. A freshly fitted bathroom can make your entire home appear modern and appealing, as most buyers look for signs of wear in the bathroom area before making an offer. You don’t need to break the bank on the remodeling project. Buyers prefer a bathroom with a walk-in shower over a tub, making it easy to stick to your budget.

Ultimately, your bathroom has to be practical for your family. Whether you are looking for modern and watertight plumbing system or a child-friendly design, most homeowners consider the needs of their family over their interior decor.
