Modern Vs Traditional - Which One Wins In The World Of Business?

One of the biggest challenges that many business owners face these days is whether to go down the traditional or modern route for doing business. These two different options are available in different areas of business, from creating advertising campaigns to organizing the day to day running of the company. So, which is really better? Here are some of the things you need to consider before you decide.


Advertising


Traditional advertising consisted of sending out thousands of flyers to people in your company’s local area and paying for advertising space in newspapers and magazines. However, the advertising scene has recently been revolutionized thanks to the dawn of social media. These days, there are lots of chances to get your business’s name out there to a wide audience without even paying a penny. You just need to make sure that you are on top of your social media game and producing tweets and posts that people want to share. Thanks to social media, modern forms of advertising are definitely more valuable than the traditional methods in today’s society!

Finance


Finance is another area in which traditional and modern methods are going up against each other. Previously, entrepreneurs hired accountants to make sure that their books and accounts were up to scratch. The accountant also filed the company’s taxes each year. However, thanks to the development of a lot of new financial software, more and more business leaders are now able to do this themselves. These online programs make it incredibly easy to file taxes, order business checks, and set up a payroll. In fact, it’s so convenient, you could become your own accountant! However, some entrepreneurs still prefer to liaise with an accountant so that they are 100% sure all their calculations are correct! Plus, an accountant knows all the tax loopholes that you might not be aware of!


Recruiting


Just a few years ago, companies had to place job adverts in local newspapers and hoped that job seekers saw them. However, this has completely changed over the past few years thanks to the Internet. These days, there are many websites dedicated to job postings. All you need to do is sign up, place your advert, and you can guarantee that hundreds of people will see it. Professional social media websites, like LinkedIn, are also a great way to connect directly with job seekers and freelancers whose skills you might want in your business.

Project Management


Organization has never been more easier now that we have tech on our side. Gone are the days of keeping notes and diaries in paper form - now you can organize these on your computer or tablet device! There are now many different project management and organizational apps that you can download to help you stay on top of all your work. And you will never miss a meeting or important appointment again!

Even though it may look like modern methods win traditional ones, it is important you research fully the ones that are best for you. But this is all down to your type of company!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
