  • How a Real Estate Marketing Professional Helped Me Achieve My Dreams

    I am a single mother to three beautiful children. My eldest, Elna, is an eight-year-old bubbly child. She loves to sing and dance and imitate me while dressing up. My second is Marcus. He is five. He loves doodling in our apartment’s wall and making weird noises. My youngest is three. She is Catelyn. I named her because of my love for the HBO series Game of Thrones. Catelyn is one of the characters in the hit series, she is the mother of the Starks children of Winterfell.
    You see, I love talking about my kids. There are times when my friends and I have coffee and I will just tell them about my kids and their latest mishaps. I love telling people who I love my kids. One day, I bumped into a stranger. At first I though she’s quite familiar. Then it hit me. She was actually a former officemate in my first job after college. I worked as an executive assistant to our boss while she was a neophyte account manager. Her name is Sharon. I invited her to come with me in the nearest coffee shop. As usual, I told her about my career path after I quit my job. After an hour long talk, we had this conversation about my failed relationship and how I dream of having my own house for my children. Right now, I am working as a manager in a retail store and the pay is quite well for my children. I found out she is currently working as a real estate marketing officer in a well-known real estate company.


    I told her that we are living in a tiny apartment, a one-drive away from my office. I have to send my kids to school two hours before so we will not all be late. As for Catelyn and Marcus, I drop them off in the nearby day care center. I fetch them right after work.
    Sharon told me I can scrap all these struggles. She offered me a real estate property just near the retail store where I work. After much pondering about her proposal, I said yes to her offer and I never looked back.
    I also transferred Elna in an exclusive school just near our store and Marcus and Catelyn are both enjoying their time in a center two blocks away. The house we know own is something we can call our home. It has a spacious kitchen (where I usually bake and make pastas) and living room where my kids can play around all they want. They too have rooms together and there is one for our house maid. We also have a nice playground and I set up a small inflatable pool for them. I also allotted a small room which shall serve as my future workstation when I decide to be a work-at-home mom. Being a manager, I get to supervise them without going their physically. I decided I will just schedule twice a week visits and all the supervision can be done at home.
    Indeed, I never regretted it. It saved me time plus I have more time for my kids.

  • Studying Marketing and Public Relations

    I graduated with a Mass Communications degree last year. Right now, I am planning to have further studies in digital communication as we all know everything is going digital already.

    Take for example magazines and newspapers which has already decreased their number of print publications so they can make way for the digital world. There are also some services which can now be done through websites or apps, which for me are way lot easier, more convenient, and even cost effective.

    For my masters degree, I am thinking of taking a course that is related to marketing and public relations n the digital world. I know, this shall involve media production, online magazine publishing and reporting, and even app development and app marketing and public relations.

    According to an article I read and from the advise of a known Vancouver realtor, marketing and public  relations are two different types. Sometimes, I mistook them as one which is not true. For marketing, it means that you are selling the product directly to your customers through a series of nicely executed strategies and programs.

    It involves the direct customers and clients who are interested in the service or product. As for public relations, it involves forming nice camaraderie and rapport with stakeholders and media people.

    These are the things I am mostly interested too since I graduated because I have been immersed to business industries  so I am more than excited to learn more when I get back to school!

  • A Watch for My Husband

    So, it was just my husband’s birthday. I always think that his birthday is going to be so easy, when it comes to planning and shopping, but then I end up being so surprised by how difficult and stressful it is. I guess when you really love someone and really care about them and really want their special day to be as special as it can be, it’s bound to be quite stressful. Or maybe I’m just the kind of person to get stressed out of those things. Anyway, every year I always buy him something like a barbecue, cooler, some kind of tent or camping chair, or something that I can find for him online. The only problem with this is the fact that I don’t know anything about these products, so I depend on the reviews of others.

    This time around, I found him an incredible cooler by browsing around on the website Survival Cooking, which was amazing in its balance reviews that were actually incredibly well-written, if you asked me, they are the probably the best written reviews that I have ever seen on the internet, and I’ve read a lot of reviews for a lot of things, so kudos to the writers on that website. Like, seriously, these are seriously well written reviews. I was also considering getting him a wristwatch, because he doesn’t have anything nice, but at the end of the day I know that it is me that once and have a nice wrist watch, and it is him that wants an amazing supply of Great Outdoor Gear. Maybe for Christmas I’ll buy him the nice watch I had my eye on while searching for the best watches under 500, but I will have you know that he was extremely excited to get his brand new cooler. So, that’s where I’m at with all of this, is that I’m very pleased that his birthday ended up being such a success for me and my gift buying, and that my man is so happy.

  • Unu Motors And Its Wonders

    Who else loves electric scooters? Well, I have been a lover of scooters since was in my teenage years. My uncle gave my first scooter at the age of 18 as a gift for my birthday. Since then, I never left my scooter. There was a time I rode mine when I was about to attend a party. While many drove in their cars, there I was, feeling chic and carefree my scooter.

    I got my second scooter when I was working. My job as an artist has required going from one place to another and it I know it will be a hassle for me if I buy a car. Though I must admit having a car will let me bring my things with me. That is why I mostly rely on ride sharing apps or ride apps in the metro. But that’s another story.

    But there was a time I felt that I needed to change or replace my scooter. That was the time I was introduced to using electric scooters. Unu Motors, the company which may be the leading in providing electric scooters or what they call as the elektrische scooter, has given me all that I need. Unu Motors boasts of its electric scooters that are eco-friendly it does not create sounds on the road, it is not fuelled by gas, it has a portable battery, and has even a system where the energy can be saved when braking, thus saving more battery. And you know what? When you charge an Unu Motor it can last about three days of city driving. Now that’s what we call effortless driving.
