Our new business licence for the District of Saanich arrived in the mail today!
Great news, We have now posted an ad in the Monday Magazine classifieds section! We will be running our ad in there for the next six months and see if that can drum up the extra business we need to keep us moving through the fall and winter!
Today our new/old truck is getting some work done by a fabulous diesel mechanic by the name of Jerome. Amazing guy, who makes biodiesel and volunteers around the community. I am lucky to know someone of his caliber who can help me get things in order with the truck, for an affordable price! The ole girl needs a new thermostat, and filters, but aside from that she seems to be running smooth for a nearly twenty year old work vehicle!
I have sorted out the problem with Virgin Mobile! They have given me a $50 credit to my account, and a brand new phone! It pays to be assertive when it comes to these sorts of things!!
This first month of the new business has been amazing! I have set up a facebook page, several online classifieds ads, a Google Places page, and soon will have advertising in the local free newspaper!
There have been a few hiccups along the way, which is to be expected. So far, all client comments about our performance have been excellent! I hope soon I will start seeing clients comments here, so I can create a better business model.
Thanks to all who have helped me get here!
