One of the Best Birthday Presents

I had a birthday party in Las Vegas, and as a gift, my friends put their money together to get one of those Las Vegas escorts. I consider it to be one of the best birthday presents that I have ever received. I was a bit nervous when I had to meet her, but the escort was really nice and made sure that our meeting wasn’t awkward at all. My friends told me that I would have a fun time with her, and they were right. I’m amazed that I never really thought about getting an escort before, because they sure know how to have fun.

The escort and I went to a club and did a lot of dancing and downed some shots. She had a lot of energy and dancing with her was the most dancing that I’ve ever done. Our hearts were racing all night, and by the time we were done, we had worked up quite an appetite. We went to a restaurant to have some dinner and talk. She was pretty funny and would tell some jokes that made me laugh for minutes. (more…)

The Boss is Going Through Wedding Blues

My boss was getting married to her boyfriend and I told her about some wedding invitations that I got from https://www.brideandgroomdirect.co.uk/wedding-invitations. I told her about these for two good reasons. I wanted my boss to have some good invitations for her wedding, especially since she would probably only get to have one set. I also wanted to get into the good graces of my boss in the hopes that it would lead to me getting a promotion in the future. I know that getting a promotion from something as simple as an invitation is a bit of a long shot, but people have gotten promotions for things far less than that, so it was worth a shot.

As my boss continued to plan her wedding, it seemed like she got a little meaner around the office. It was like all of the planning was getting to her, causing her to build up stress that was affecting the rest of us. I know how that feels, especially since it happened with my wife and I. Going through all of the wedding motions didn’t help us at all, and once it was finally over, we were glad that we wouldn’t be going through it again, at least until we decided to do something crazy for our 50th wedding anniversary.

Once my boss had her wedding and she came back to work after the honeymoon, she was her old self again. She gave me a hand written thank you letter and a fruit basked for helping her with the invitations, and told me that she’s had her eye on me for a while, and thinks that I have quite a future at the company. If that isn’t a sign that a promotion is in the cards, then I don’t know what else would be one.

Winding Up Petition – Consequences For Your Business

Winding up petitions are being increasingly used as an aid to business debt collection because of the serious consequences for a company if they are ignored. If you receive a winding up petition it is vital to act quickly or risk losing your business.

The Winding up process is used to force the closure of a business where there is outstanding unpaid debt. The creditor must first issue a statutory demand for the payment of their debt. Where this is not resolved within 21 days, a petition for the winding up or closure of the business can be issued.

When a winding up petition is granted by the court, the company in question will be liquidated. The directors of the company can of course challenge the petition. However, once a winding petition is issued, there will be serious consequences for the business even if the debt owed is subsequently paid or successfully challenged.

Bank account frozen

Seven days after a winding up petition is issued, notice of this will be publicised in the London Gazette. Almost without exception the banks will pick up on this and freeze the bank account of the company. This means that cash cannot be paid into the account and payments cannot be made.

In addition to its bank accounts being frozen, the company is legally prevented from selling any assets or property. As such it is extremely difficult for the company to continue to trade.

If your company receives a winding up petition, there are certain actions that you can take:

Validation Order

It may be possible to unfreeze the company bank account to make specific payments, for example staff wages. However, this can only be achieved with the specific agreement of the court. If the court agrees that the transaction can take place, it will issue a validation order to this effect. The cost of applying for a validation order will have to be borne by the company directors.

Company Rescue

The implementation of a company rescue solution such as company voluntary arrangement or administration will automatically stop all current court action being taken against a company. As such a winding up petition would automatically be overturned.

If your business is in receipt of a winding up petition, the business rescue solution you will normally consider is a company voluntary arrangement. This solution will enable the directors to retain control of the management of the business unlike administration where the directors will lose control.

Unfortunately, the option of pre-pack administration or phoenixing is not available as this requires the sale of company assets and this transaction cannot be undertaken once a winding up petition has been issued without a validation order from the court.

Given the serious implications of receiving a winding up petition, the best thing is to avoid this situation all together. However, if one of your creditors issues your company with a statutory demand or you are actually in receipt of a winding up petition, it is very important that you take specialist advice as soon as possible.

There are actions you can take to prevent your business being wound up. However, these options will diminish unless you act quickly.

The Benefits of Newsprint Ad Buying

In the digital age, a lot of people feel like print advertising is out. The reality, however, is that there has never been a better time to capitalize on print marketing because so few businesses are actually doing it today. Initially, brick-and-mortar businesses were being told that they need digital marketing and an online presence. That has been the mantra for the past few years. What a lot of people don’t mention, though, is how online companies or non-traditional businesses can benefit from print advertising.

Newsprint ad buying will help you find the best newspaper real estate to advertise your company. Of course, you don’t have to have an ad team in-house to take care of this. By working with a media buying agency, you can get all the ad space you need with less effort. These agencies are professionals and they know how to find the best deals on the best spaces, including with newsprint ad buying. When you choose this type of marketing, you are reaching out to people in a totally different way.

Print advertising has many benefits. People who might otherwise ignore online advertisements are often stopped by print ads that catch their attention. People who still read the newspaper or magazines regularly are much more likely to see your ads if you have them in print. You’ll get more exposure and access to a different audience that you might not find online. It’s all about increasing your reach, and that’s exactly what newsprint ads will do.

It’s not that you can’t benefit from online advertising. It’s just that you need more than that if you want a successful ad campaign strategy. TV, newsprint, and radio ads are still popular and a lot of businesses don’t realize the potential of offline advertising. You should take the time to talk to a media buying agency about newsprint ad buying and see what it can do for you.

One of the biggest benefits of newsprint ad buying is that in the digital age when people are more focused on the internet, ads are cheaper than ever before.
