Many would vote Tunku Abdul Rahman as Malaysia’s most beloved prime minister because of his endearing ways. His wit, sharpness of mind, empathy and compassion for the common people were legendary.
Here’s one thing I know. If you’re going to run a Fund A Need auction, don’t assume that because you’ve observed it a couple times at other galas, you understand the mechanics of it. To do so would be like saying that you — as a guest at a wedding — understand what the bride is thinking.
If you want to give people the impression that you have a successful business you are going to have to make some adjustments. It is difficult to make a sale if someone thinks you are a broken down loser trying to play businessman. You must show them that you are serious and that you have something they need. In business, impression is everything.
There are times, tipping the case over, tapping it softly, and watching a few tic tacs fall out, that I envision myself pouring the breath mint contents directly into my mouth. With a pithy shake of the head, I reassure myself that I’m stronger than those twinges of tic tac temptation threatening to yank me over the threshold, back into the brutally mintish abyss.
I was evicted from a mall on a Sunday nine years ago. My intention was to buy a pair of gym shoes and leave to go to my school library. An unfortunate event venue vienna resulted in a plan change. I lost my wallet and the ninety dollars that were in it as a result of the wallet slipping out of my shallow back pocket while I rode the bus to the mall. I decided to spend the whole day at the mall because I did not want to walk the long distance to school before walking all the way home. I was evicted for a day because I spent too much time in the restroom and too much time in the food court without eating. If you must spend hours at a mall, you should browse the mall or use most of the time to do something constructive such as reading or studying at the mall’s bus stop shelter.
Food is another important party matter. Find out what the individual likes to eat and look around for a caterer or restaurant that serves it at a good price and is good quality. Consider foods like sushi, pizza, their favorite dish, finger sandwiches, and snack food. Do not forget the cake; shop around for a good deal on the cake so you do not spend too much.
THE key to successful investing is a broad-based portfolio. Don’t speculate. Don’t try to time the market. Stay invested even when things look bleak. If you miss those rare days when the market rises 300-to-500 points, your portfolio won’t grow at historical compounded rates. NO ONE can time the stock market.
