Downy Anti-Bac with the Power of Safeguard Review

I’ve been seeing a lot of working moms and their kids doing house chores together. It’s nice to see that moms are giving it their all in learning how to cook, bake, wash laundry by hand and ironing clothes. One of the things that I have realized during these trying times is that knowing the basics and going back to the basics is something that we should do occasionally.

Normal Scenario in our house!

Speaking of “the basics”, in our household, one of the products that we can’t live without is Downy Anti-bac. I discovered Downy Anti-bac through browsing through Lazada. I was having a hard time keeping our clothes smelling fresh and clean during this enhanced community quarantine. My husband would wear a shirt and would complain about his clothes smelling weird (na amoy kulob).  This smell, people say, is because the clothes didn’t get to dry out properly. It’s so hard living inside a condo unit where I don’t have the necessary space to hang and dry all of our clothes. But I just found out that the main cause really of our clothes stinking is that there are what you can call odor-causing germs. 

I tried Downy Anti-bac for our first huge basked of clothes during quarantine. I wanted to see if this Downy Anti-bac with the power of Safeguard for maximum germ protection could really help us. 

So why this variant? It protects your clothes from germ growth that causes that weird and funky smell. All you need to do is pour Downy during the last rinse water or into the washing machine dispenser. Just use one cap for one full load, so this my bottle of Downy actually goes a long way. One cap is for 52L water level and do not pour downy directly into the clothes. 

I’ve never used a FabCon or a fabric conditioner before Downy. I easily get allergic rhinitis to scents, but for some reason, I don’t have the same experience with this product.

My super active child! haha!

I think Down Anti-bac with the Power of Safeguard for maximum Germ Protection will be a staple at home. Our clothes smell great even after I work out, Zeeka jumps around and EJ sits and works in an un-airconditioned room. We still smell fresh and clean at the end of the day. So what i’ve realized is that it’s not the sweat causing it but the odor-causing germs.

So for moms who are still having doubts if they should buy this FabCon, Downy Anti-bac  with the Power of Safeguard really eliminates these odor-causing germs. It’s worth every centavo since you don’t have to wash clothes again and again. 

Staying safe and protecting everyone in the family should be our main priority! Dapat lamar kayo protektado! Stay safe!

Going Global as a Small Business

One of the end-game goals of most entrepreneurs is to reach a point where they’re recognized internationally. Thanks to the internet, it’s surprisingly easy for your product to reach different cultures, countries and languages. However, this alone isn’t enough to consider yourself as a global business. Unfortunately, small companies have a much harder time breaking into international markets because they don’t have the right connections, staff or knowledge required to make it overseas. While this can be something you slowly work on over a long period of time, there’s no doubt that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication.

However, there are a couple of strategies that you can employ today that will not only increase the number of international opportunities available to you but could help you enter foreign markets on a much lower budget.

Consider which countries you want to appeal to

While it’s possible to appeal to the world as a whole with your product, we highly suggest that you pinpoint your focus on a particular region of the world or country. Some products do much better on a global stage because it’s something that everyone can use, such as a smartphone. However, even such a widely-used tech product can have smaller markets and demands in certain areas. For instance, wealthy areas of the world love big-name brands such as Apple and Samsung. However, areas with dense populations and lower income might prefer budget smartphones with a heavy emphasis on value.

As a result, you need to consider which countries your products appeal to. This can be difficult to identify with minimal research. This is why it’s important to do some preliminary research on potentially viable markets before you decide to invest in your growth in another country’s markets.

Do your research as early as possible

Once you have identified those opportunities, it’s time to start doing research. Everything from financial options to production and even cultural differences needs to be considered when performing research. The idea here is that you’re looking for any risks or challenges involved in breaking into a new market.

On the financial side of things, it’s worth establishing flexible options so that you can easily pivot your business when you want to capitalize on overseas opportunities. For example, having a way to send money to Pakistan could be helpful if you wanted to set up a means of production in South Asia. Similarly, having support for local payment methods and not just cards and PayPal. In the context of Pakistan, this could mean local options such as EasyPaisa and payOrder. Doing this type of research will greatly improve your chances of breaking into an international market simply because you’ll be more relatable.

Establish a small team of experts

If you want to go global as a small business, you’ll need to organize a team of experts that can smooth out the process. This can include translators, local influencers and even support staff that can speak the language. With this small team of specialists, you’ll have a much easier time communicating with an overseas audience and also appealing to them through changes in your branding and products. It can be difficult to find the right people for the job. Networking is your best friend here and doing your research on local influencers to work with can make a huge difference in your success rates.

One of the essential skills of becoming an entrepreneur is being able to lead a team. Even if it’s a relatively small but diverse group of specialists, having a team that is focused on international growth will make a huge difference in the long run. Not only will you be able to communicate with overseas customers, but you’ll also be able to change your branding or products and services to fit a different market. You should never underestimate the cultural differences in overseas markets and how they can affect both the products you create and your marketing materials. By respecting these cultural differences, you’ll have a much easier time growing your business in a completely different environment.

Going global as a small business can be surprisingly challenging, especially if you’re working with a relatively small team or have a limited budget to spend on overseas expansion. However, with the right approach and a team to support you, we believe that it’s one of the most attainable goals for a confident entrepreneur. If you’re looking for something challenging to push your business to its limits, then attempting to break onto an international stage may be enticing thanks to the rewards it can offer.

Making Life in Lockdown as Productive as Possible

Lockdown is a new way of life we’re all having to grow used to. Across the world, people from almost all countries are being encouraged to stay home, only leaving when absolutely necessary, such as to buy food or to pick up medication or seek medical help. Many of us are struggling to feel productive during this time. Not only are we not used to being in the house all day every day and may feel like there’s nothing to do, but we may also be feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed, which can easily lead to procrastination or listlessness. So, to help you keep your chin up and get things done, even under these odd circumstances, here are a few tips and tricks that can help to keep you as productive as possible!

Working from Home

Some people have been forced out of work by coronavirus, as they’re unable to work on a remote basis. But if you can work remotely, you’re in luck! You can still generate an income and get by more easily. However, working from home is very different to working from an office. You’re going to have to make sure you’re productive of your own accord, as you’re not going to have a manager watching over your shoulder during your working hours. Take a little time to read up tips to work from home. It’s also a good idea to try to maintain as much of a routine around work as possible. Still get up early, shower and eat breakfast before sitting down to work for the day. Make sure you still take sufficient breaks. Make sure you still finish at your usual time. If you find that you’re struggling, or can think of anything that will help you to be more productive, reach out to your manager or boss and make some suggestions!

Hobbies

Now is a great time to pick up some new hobbies. They can simply be fun. They can teach you a skill. They could prove to be something you continue even once the lockdown restrictions have been lifted. No matter what your personal interests, there’s bound to be something that suits you down to a tee! Some popular options include baking, learning a new language, reading, writing, painting, arts and crafts, jigsaw puzzles, learning to play an instrument and much more. So, give a few different things a try until you find something that you can really focus on!

Communication

The current time could be a chance to work on the relationships in your life. Reach out to friends you haven’t spoken to in a long time. Talk to family members who you don’t usually get the time to catch up with as regularly as you’d like to. There are plenty of ways to do this from home. Most people are now enjoying video call apps, like Zoom and Houseparty!

You don’t have to complete any gargantuan feats during lockdown. But this can prove to be a productive time if you handle and face things the right way and with a positive can-do attitude!

If you’re an entrepreneur looking to improve your skills, you have definitely come to the right place. Whether you’re new to business or you’ve been running yours for years, improving on your skills is an essential part of being a business owner. Whilst it may be overwhelming to choose at first, there are lots of skills you can be working on that will help benefit your business in the long run. From web design to customer service, the more you’re doing to help the growth of your business the better. With that in mind, here are 7 essential skills for entrepreneurs to learn: 

Web Design And Development

When it comes to running your own business, ensuring you’re able to operate online is essential. Whether this is through social media channels or your business’ website, more and more people are looking to purchase products online. 

If you already have a website, learning web design skills will allow you to make improtant updates and changes to your site without having to rely on others. If you don’t have a website, learning web design and development skills will give you the opportunity to create one. For a guide to setting up your own business website, you can visit this site here. 

Branding & Marketing

Branding and marketing are essential when it comes to running any business so if you’re looking a skill that you’re definitely going to use during your time as an entrepreneur, this is the one. Whether you’re learning how to create branding guidelines or you’re discovering all of the ways in which you can market your business to your target audience, the more you know in these two areas the better. Luckily, there are lots of branding and marketing courses available for you to do. 

Social Media Management

Social media is another vital part of any business and if you’re looking to grow your brand online, the more social media skills you have the better. This could mean taking an in-depth look at a particular platform or learning how each of them can help you in different ways. In most cases, each social media platform will serve a different purpose for you and as a result, it’s important for you to learn where to position yourself.

Customer Service

Customer service is essential to every business owner, so if you have the opportunity to improve your skills you definitely should consider it.

Financial Management 

Another great skill to have as a business owner is financial management, as this will ensure you’re able to keep on top of your own finances. Although you may want to hire an accountant for the more difficult aspects of running your own business, learning how to keep track of your money each month is important. If you want to take a more in-depth course, that may be an option further down the line. 

Public Relations

If you’re looking to increase the reach of your business but you don’t know where to begin, improving your skills in public relations can help. From learning how to approach media professionals to delving into the world of PR disasters, having these skills will certainly help you in the future. 

If you’re looking to start featuring your business in the news, this is the best place to start. 

Photography 

Finally, improving your skills in photography is a great way to ensure you’re able to take great product photos. Although you may want to hire a photographer for your professional website photos, being able to take high-quality photos that can be used on social media will give you the opportunity to post much more frequently. If you don’t have a camera, you may also want to consider a course in mobile photography. 

Although there are lots of skills you should be learning as a business owner, it doesn’t mean you have to learn them right away. These are all things you will slowly pick up as your business grows.
