Yolanda D’Orazio,  founder and volunteer coordinator of the Don Of All Trades Building Trees of Hope Program hosted a small Women Lunch  in aid of Herizon House Women’s Shelter-a not-for-profit, charitable organization that provides a place of safety where women and children will feel accepted, supported and empowered as they move towards living their lives free of violence in Durham Region.

This was a perfect opportunity for Women in Business to get together, have fun, connect, share, show support and enjoy good food and conversation while making a contribution to our Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope program benefiting Herizon House.

Front Walkway Rebuild

slabs 12

 

Previously this week I had a client hire our services to redo a slab front walkway. My client decided to incorporate some of the original slabs along with the new. Items on the list to purchase in order to complete this project just to name a few was screening product, new slabs to replace broke ones. Gaiters edge, and landscaping spikes.

 

I basically tore out everything and started from scratch. My client was addressing major water damage issues. We corrected the problem by putting 1/4 inch slope going away from the house with the screening and the new slabs.

 

Using gaiter edging, will keep all slabs in place even after the frost gets to it. New grading should correct the water situation. Doesn’t look like a big job, bit don’t kid yourself!!!  30 feet of new walkway is more time consuming work that you may think.  Don’t forget the front steps were moved and replaced back due to the fact they were sinking.  All in all, the front walkway looks so much better, is safer and adds more curb appeal.

I have included some of the before and after photos.

Networking- Do They Really Generate Leads For Your Business?

Networking.  Do they really generate any profits or leads for your business? Or is it just another excuse to socialize?

For my business, I believe Networking is an important tool  to create  professional relationships with other “like-minded” individuals within my community. Do they general leads? In the short-term, I believe networking will not give you quick results but in the long run with persistence, they can make you profit.
