A short blog about my move to a Dallas Office

When I began my business I had a small team of employees but who knew that we would be the size we are today. Every successful business has a strong and happy workforce behind it.


When a business is successful it expands and our small one room office just wasnt suitable anymore, so we had to move.


Finding the perfect office which was suitable for your business but yet big enough for your workforce proved to be a problematic task. But thankfully we had help from the team behind Dominuscommercial.com.


Location,Location,Location is always very important. Our business needed to be located within the city centre for many reasons such as transport links and other facilities such a post offices and banks. It will be easier for your employees to travel into work as well as potential clients and customers. Of course, every office wants a nice location within a building that isn't falling apart and within a safe neighbourhood.


I always made sure that my employees were involved in the process of relocating. We would have meetings about potential locations and they would give me advice on where to look. Its always best to take into account the needs of your staff such as is there ramp access in the new building as well as safe security systems. I also gave them as much notice as possible about the move leaving them to prepare and get ready without rushing and panicking.


My biggest tip for anyone moving office would be to make sure you set out a relocation strategy. Make sure you have a removal team ready, as well as temporary storage (if needed), as well as seeking advice from your internet and broadband supplier. The sooner everything is prepared and ready the quicker your employees can settle in and start work, a break in business will result in a loss of money.


Always get professional advice especially when leasing a new office building. Lawyers can help with the procedure and proved to be very successful with our move. However Dominus Commercial proved to be considerably helpful, finding numerous suitable locations and even luxury office suites in dallas. Dominus even helped with the moving process!


Once you have found the perfect office location which is suitable for the nature of your business, as well as all of your employees and equipment, you can then begin to move in. I used a checklist which prevented me from forgetting anything too vital. If you have a a team of happy staff they are more willing to help with the relocation!


Now that the business is all set up and working within our new office, we have become accustomed to our new office. A good office improves staff spirit and creates a happy work atmosphere.

How I Prepared for my Fishing Trip this Week to the Sea and the

I went on my first fishing trip at the age of eight, and loved it, I have enjoyed it ever since, playing an important role in my life.


My dad was a keen angler, as was my grandfather and when I was young we all used to go out to the ocean on my grandfathers boat, much of my childhood was spent there.


Although now I am older and with a career and other responsibilities, I haven't been able to fish as often as I would like to. This weekend however I am spending two full days ocean fishing, first time I've been away from the city in nearly a year.


Many anglers in the country, tend to favour river fishing or freshwater fishing as its sometimes called. I enjoy this too although ocean fishing for me is more exciting. With saltwater fishing you never know what kind of fish you are going to catch, there are so many varieties of fish in the ocean as well as many different sizes. Fishing in a river or pond, you normally know the species of fish that you are likely to catch.


For most of my childhood I lived by the sea which is probably why I never got to fish often on rivers and lakes, as the ocean was on my doorstep. When fishing in the ocean it was either from a jetty or my grandfathers small boat. To hire a boat is quite easy or you can go on a specially designed fishing trip, where the boat is included, which is what I'm doing this week - I am not excited for the sea sickness however.


Sea fishing does however does need a lot more equipment. The current of the sea is a lot stronger to that of a river or lake, so more hardwearing and heavier tackle is needed. The fish can also be a lot bigger too and you won't be able to reel them in with a weak rod, it could break! I have brought new fishing rods especially and a waterproof mac of course, I also have a wide selection of bait that a Norweigan fisherman would be proud about.


Buying all the equipment for my weekend away wasn't as expensive as I primarily thought and to continue the hobby I think I will find it very affordable. I did however, treat myself to a brand new reel, the Accurate Reel BX2-600, it has enough intensity to subdue a blue shark! On the topic of fishing hooks, I always buy a double eagle treble hook, it has always been trustworthy.


Packing my tackle box with my new equipment for the weekend ahead got me quite excited, why have I waited this long to go fishing? I think when I return I will start fishing in nearby streams and lakes, occasionally venturing to the sea when I have a spare weekend. Fishing in the fresh air might have its advantages and clear my head after a tiring week in the office.


With my equipment packed and ready the only thing left for me to do is travel to the sea. I will be sure to update you all when I get back about the amount of fish I caught- or not!

Certain things to remember before booking the next all inclusive

Booking an excursion can be something which can unnerve you, which is why it is a good idea to check a lot of the obvious stuff before your journey.

It is an important point as you want to ensure you have a great break; as for some people, it is their only holiday trip of the calendar year.

So there are some thoughts to consider when planning a holiday, with regards from allinclusive.co.uk:

This probably seems like a no-brainer but destination is everything. Depending on what you want a tourist hotspot can seal or ruin your holiday. For instance, if you like to chill at a beach then going to Prague is not in your interests. Likewise, if you are interested in partying all night long then there are destinations more suited to you than Doha. Throughout it all, the important thing is to link the resort which best suits your interests, if you don't like it then you will dislike your holiday. It is therefore a very good idea to do some research about where you want to go and see what is available before you take your holiday.

As soon as you know where you are going, you may want to look at planning trips which may be beneficial to you for the experience you will gain from it. For example, you wouldn't want to go to Peru and not make any time to see Machu Picchu or you would not visit Australia and pass up the chance to see Ayer's Rock. In fact, a lot of holidays overseas allow you the opportunity to see a once in a life time tourist hotspot. Consequently, you should work out what you want to do on your holiday in advance; as you will be spending quite a lot of money on the holiday.

You have to weigh up the advantages of which holiday maker to choose. You have to ensure the travel agent you use listens to want you want and supports you in picking a holiday which is best for you. You do not want to see a travel agent who is solely intent on trying to offer you a holiday you do not want. There is no benefit in having a travel agency try to make your choice for you when it not only has limited choice but also has a bad reputation. These are good reasons to do some research before making your decision to use a particular travel agent.

You need to pick a hotel that you will feel comfortable with and that will meet your needs. For instance you might want a budget hotel as you will only use the hotel to sleep in as during the day you are visiting different sites where you are based. On the other hand, you may find that you want to make the most of your hotel and will therefore want an all inclusive package with free food, accommodation and beverages. If this type of hotel sounds ideal then look through some of the inclusive holiday destinations listed on allinclusive.co.uk.

It may sound straight forward but what you take can make or break your holiday. This is because if you don't pack appropriate attire then you will not be happy during the entire journey. Consider the effects on you if you were to pack a hat and scarf for a trip to the Seychelles or worse than that you only packed a t-shirt and shorts for a Russian winter. Although what you read previously was a slight exaggeration, it is vital that you take time to research your journey so as to find out what type of weather you are likely to encounter. It is better to be cautious and research as much as you can before you head off on your holiday.

Once you have read this article you should have more idea from the information offered that will be very helpful if you look to plan your next trip.

A Blog About How I Discovered the Perfect Flooring For My Brand

A few weeks ago I went to pick out some flooring, as I am in the middle of decorating my new house, which I only moved into three months ago.


I have been trying to avoid this stage for weeks now, but as a result of all the decorating in the bedroom, the dusty and paint stained carpet, just had to go.


So finally it was time to visit the flooring showroom to discover what type of floor was available to me, I did hope to quickly find the right flooring for my bedroom, something that looked classic and had a vintage feel, without being too expensive.


Whilst at the showroom, I was shown an array of different samples from laminate flooring all the way to tile flooring and carpets, The sales representative was extremely helpful and very cheerful considering it was a Monday. He was attentive as I told him my concerns about wooden flooring. My main worry was that it wouldn't look genuine, many wooden floors these days remind me of a show home and don't feel very homelike.


After hours of searching I came to a flooring I liked, it was pine laminate flooring. To me it looked like it could've been from an old house, discovered underneath an antique carpet. The pine was dark brown with an aged feel. I thought it would be perfect for my room. The sales rep told me this was one of the most popular styles The sales representative told me this was one of the most popular styles with many customers using it in their bedrooms and living rooms.


I also asked if it would be an issue because I have a dog and supposedly a wooden floor would make my life a lot easier, as it is easier to maintain. Stains can obviously be cleaned up easier and dust can be swept up much easier. The people at the showroom just advised me to keep my dogs nails trimmed so no scratches were made to my flooring. I even got to take a sample home and after days of thinking I decided to take the plunge and get a wooden floor in my bedroom.


Many people I know already have wooden flooring, but there are countless varieties. From traditional wood like Pine and Ash all the way to lacquered wood and bamboo, all that look great and can add such a twist to any room. Whilst I was there I also had a sneak peak at the tiling and laminates and I have already found the perfect floor for my kitchen!!


It has been two weeks now since a Hardwood floors dallas specialist installed wooden flooring and my bedroom already looks much more spacious. Not only does it look stylish but it adds a finishing touch to the bedroom that I have worked away on for the past few weeks. It is easier to clean and it is a lot warmer than I predicted it would be, but just to make sure I added a vintage rug and a few more soft furnishings. My dog loved it too, although seeing him walk on it for the first time was a bit like Bambi on ice.


My wooden floor has made my house look very fashionable and there are styles and colours to suit every taste. Whether you would like it to look vintage or contemporary, there is a hardwood flooring for everyone.
