Highway Code for pedestrians #2

Highway Code

Highway Code for pedestrians recommends to consider safe crossing the road. It is extremely critical to teach children to cross the road safely. Don't forget that children always learn from their parents behavior!

It is recommendable first find a safe place to cross and where there is space to reach the pavement on the other side. Bear in mind that it is safer to cross using a subway, a footbridge, an island, a zebra, pelican, toucan or puffin crossing, or where there is a crossing point controlled by a police officer, a school crossing patrol or a traffic warden. If this is not possible choose a place where you can see clearly in all directions. Try to avoid crossing between parked cars, on a blind bend, or close to the brow of a hill. Move to a space where drivers and riders can see you clearly. Do not cross the road diagonally.

Don't forget to stop just before you get to the kerb, where you can see if anything is coming. Observe distance to the traffic but make sure you can still see approaching vehicles. Use you ears, sometimes you hear traffic before you see it. Don't hurry - your life is more important than to be somewhere in time! Even if you have to catch airplane to Philippines! Don't cross the road until there is a safe gap in the traffic and you are certain that there is plenty of time. Bear in mind even if traffic is a long way off, it may be approaching very quickly. While you cross the road keep looking and listening for traffic while you cross. It helps you to notice traffic you haven't seen before or which has appeared suddenly. Don't forget about cyclists and motorcyclists changing lanes of traffic.

How I atomized invoicing on my enterprise

30 Oct 2010

Every year the number of enterprises that issue electronic invoices increases. I have been running my company for 2 years. Everything connected with invoicing I did manually by myself. When my suppliers forced me to receive electronic invoices, I didn’t mind. I realised that it is fast and convenient to receive invoices by e-mail. I have started to think of changing my way of invoicing too.

I have heard about billing software that is used for invoicing customers. I have found some programs in the internet. But it was difficult to sort out which of these programs is suitable for my business needs. Fortunately most of billing software providers offer to try free demo versions of program. This helped me to choose one invoicing program called Invoiceor (www.invoiceor.com) which was easy to work with. After the end of demo version I have bought a membership.

I warned all my customers about issuing electronic invoices in advance. For those who still wanted to receive paper invoices I made extra charge. Almost all customers agreed with electronic bill receiving. I noticed that invoicing with Invoiceor takes me less time. I can invoice customers even from home, because my billing program is online.

All data about my products and customers is saved into invoicing program. So creating an invoice means choosing a customer and an item from the list, setting due date and invoice is ready to be sent. When you get to know with the program, you can create an invoice in 1 minute time. I find billing software wonderful and very helpful assistant of my business.

Changing my way of invoicing

8 Aug 2010

One day I realized that economic circumstances became very bad for a business. I was very upset, but decided not to give up, because I put my whole soul and much effort into my business. I don’t even talk about money investments, which I am doing constantly. I started thinking of cutting down expenses. The only problem I was faced with was detecting costs that I can cut down. I tried to communicate with my friends, who also manage some business. Mostly all of them reduced the number of stuff. I couldn’t do the same, because there were only two people employed in my small enterprise. I tried to surf the Internet and found one interesting solution.

The solution is concerning invoicing. Exactly it is introducing invoicing software into my business. First I couldn’t get how I can save money while I waste it on buying invoicing software. Right, first I needed to spend money on the invoicing software. It should help me to save money in long-term. And it did.

I will tell you in details about everything what I gained from improving invoicing. My usual way of creating invoices was MS Word. Yes, it took me some time to make every invoice look nice, but I was pretty satisfied. Then I printed invoice, put it into an envelope and delivered to the post office. After I bought invoicing program, everything have completely changed. My new invoicing scenario was following: I created an invoice using templates provided by the software and then I sent invoice right from the program to the client by an email. The process became much easier, faster and more pleasant. I reached my main goal – to save money. See for yourself, I don’t use any paper and post service for invoicing. I don’t spend that much printer ink than I used to. And finally, I spend less time on sending invoices, which let me spend more time on my business developing.

I came to a conclusion that not always you have to stop doing something to reduce costs and improve business. Sometimes you need just change the way how you do things, even if it takes some money investment at the beginning.
