I need to get back right on track.
In a few months, I will mark my second year here in Dubai. As I assess my stay here, I noticed that I have been a bit lenient with myself and not totally concentrating on what my goal is.
The goal: SAVE MONEY AND COME HOME
That was the plan and I did not follow it. Well, I sort of and then when I saw a very beautiful blouse at Mango, I snatched it and immediately headed to the counter… though on the way there, I saw a beautiful skirt (which I only wore once from the time I bought it) and snatched it too.
Now, I’ve snatched two pairs of shoes, a couple of books from Magrudy’s and secondhand bookshops, a couple of blouses and a lot, i repeat, A LOT of dvds…
As we check on our ‘poor savings’, Rob got frantic and suggest we stop buying. I gave him a sort of ‘boohoo’ look and he rephrased himself and suggest we lessen our shopping spree.
I did feel bad because it’s our money and we should enjoy it but rob said that we need to look further – the future. We should invest so that if in case we get tired of working here, we have a fall back. Good idea.
Our dilemma now is what kind of business sells these days? Should we risk on ‘what’s hot’ now? or should it be more on the stable side? Currently, I am searching for business tips, all the how-tos and you shoulds… I just hope that we can invest our hard earned money well.
So… the reason for this post is … (drum roll please) *ahem* *ahem* GUYS! can you help or maybe suggest what we can do or invest on? Some friends said, franchising is good because you need not go through the hassle of acquiring a license, this and that because everything will be provided by the supplier. On your part, you only need to provide manpower so they can train them and be of service for the upcoming business. However, on the other hand, it’s also okay to be able to brainstorm and ‘be original’. Though in franchising, you will not have net losses because they study the location, people, etc strategically.
So guys? what do you think?
P.S. About the anniversary happening, will post – one picture next time(I can’t remember if there was a pic taken because our camera betrayed us when I was suppose to take our pic, it ran out of battery so what I will do is I will just post pics from my birthday lunch weeeheee..). By the way, Rob liked the gift and was so surprised! As for moi gift, he gave me FLOWERS!!! Sweet! Love him!
