Konversion and Turbo Theme on Shopify

I am considering of paying RM 500 to scale up my Shopify shop using paid theme like Konversion or Turbo which is double the price at $350. ZelloShop.com is very well developed, has a hundred products and makes USD 100,000 per month revenue with USD 50,000 profit. I might just follow the excellent business model shared by 2 male business partners with 2 Virtual Assistants helping them for RM 4,000 in total. My Shopify shop is already 4 months in operation but still hardly any sales. Hence, I need a mentor to guide me to scale up my business to even greater heights. As you know, most of the succcessful Shopify owners are men, very few ladies are in this business, unless they sell maternity stuffs.

Digital Marketing

I just came back from Kuala Lumpur with a stopover in Ipoh last night. It was a bit tiring and I slept early to work today, a weekend. This morning, I was browsing the internet, when I came across king kong digital marketing, where you can click on the link to find out more information.

As we all know, digital marketing is the lifeblood of your online business or website to grow and prosper. As a rule of thumb, we should allocate 1/3 for building a website, 1/3 of our money for marketing or advertisements and final 1/3 for maintenance.

I am blessed to be able to work from a home office with the benefits of an SME company with EPF and SOCSO, medical benefits, etc. But lots of traveling is required and it can get lethargic at times. In the meantime, you can check out the link above and read more information on digital marketing.

10 Powerful Habits of the Ultra Successful

Above is an infographic that is self explanatory. One of the habits is networking with people smarter than you or successful ones. Birds of a feather flock together. Another is to diet and exercise like playing futsal, soccer, sports, tennis, swimming, golfing or cycling. I should also add, that one needs to have a hobby too like playing the guitar, organ, piano, flute, etc. Others include blogging, writing articles, or even moonlighting part-time by being a freelancer and bid for jobs. Craigslist.org is a good place to look for free jobs online and you don’t have to pay anything, unlike Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, even though these sites will always have constant jobs offers.

Tomorrow, on a short notice, I shall be going down to Kuala Lumpur with my married business partner due to issues in a condominium, visit other places and then head to Ipoh on Friday. We just put our pet Pomeranian puppy in a pet hotel for 3 days or so. The 2 white Holland Lop rabbits will be taken care of by the workers in another place. Such is my life of travelling and working. Sometimes, I wish to have a family of my own and not travel so much with someone special.

Welcome Year of the Dog in 2018

Welcome to the year of the Dog in 2018. Each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year cycle. 2018 is an Earth Dog Year.

Five Types of Dog; Which One Are You?

In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. For example, a Wood Dog comes once in a 60-year cycle.

Dawn of a New Year – 2018

2017 is coming to an end by the stroke of midnight tonight. It will be the dawn of a new year in 2018 with the zodiac sign of the Dog. Goodbye cockeral. It is my zodiac sign and I shall be 48 soon. I hope 2018 will bring better and more opportunities for me like social life, travels, and work. I just came back from New Zealand having been to Christchurch, Auckland and Dunedin. Also went to see the Hobbit holes and a man-made erected tree at New Zealand where the movie, ‘Lord of the Rings’ was shot.

I saw glow worms in dark caves with stalagtites and stalagmites sitting on a boat. Bought many fridge magnets for souvenirs, 3 pieces of alpaca fur and gifting one to my parents with free chocolates from Cadbury factory that will soon close down and the sky tower.

I still haven’t fully unpacked yet and need to claim insurance for crushed Santa Barbara luggage bag upon arrival in Singapore and it was plastic wrapped to Christchurch. Thank goodness, all my things were intact. I had to pay additional NZ170 for a bigger luggage to contain all my things at the airport.

Anyway, Happy New Year 2018 to everyone!

Going Down South Tomorrow

Tomorrow, I shall be going down south to KL with my colleague early in the morning. We will return by Wednesday. I have already been booked for an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) on Thursday at 9:30am at a local hospital for tendonitis and frozen shoulder. The medication and doctor’s consultation of $50 cost a total of $98.05. This is just the beginning and many more visits and thank goodness, I am covered by Prudential insurance and SOCCO. The maximum one can claim from Prudential is $3,000. MRI is about $800 in another hospital that I had gone for the same condition 3 years ago. My colleague will also visit his varsity mates who will gather there for a reunion at a local club in KL.

Meanwhile, Leia, my Pomeranian puppy was sent to pet boarding yesterday while the 4 Holland Lop rabbits were sent to pet boarding during dinner time. This frees us of our time taking care of furry kids!
