How I Roll…

Have you ever wondered. Just what it is that

sets a business apart from its competitors?

 

I know I have. And quite often too. As the number of postings here can testify.

All the posts on this page. Give you a sideways view at how I view my competition. And some of the thought processes behind how I strive to be different with my business. And all while being as entertaining and educational as possible. ( I hope ).

I suppose, in a nutshell… It’s just… How I Roll 🙂

Updates do date include:

  • Moon Walking…  Did you know that it is commonly perceived…   That Neil Armstrong’s first words on the moon surface were…   “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”?   Well I’m sorry dear readers because what he actually said was this…   “Wild thing, you make my heart sing, you make everything — groovy”
  • Positioning…  From where I live, to get to a place in New South Wales called Newcastle, you have to travel along the Pacific Highway between Sydney and Brisbane. A hell of a road with nothing to do. So I got me to thinking about the positioning of my business. There are no right and wrong answers with positioning….
  • Billable Hours…  Buckle your seat belts people, because in a few short paragraphs… I’m going to teach you a thing or two about running a handyman business. So sit down, shut up, and enjoy the experience of this 4am, Red Bull induced, self hatred fuelled, writing extravaganza… And learn all about my Billable Hours…
  • Sound Advice…  Have you ever thought how important music is to you? Stop telling lies now, of course you haven’t. Most people don’t think about it at all. Until it’s too late and they’re on the BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’ program. And Natasha Kaplinski is sitting there asking “How important is music to you?
  • Hangover trouble…  As many of my regular 6 or 7 readers may already know…   I often turn to the Ancient Greeks and their old mythology for my writing inspiration…   And today is to be no different.As I sit here with a thundery grey numbness rushing round my aching brain. Yes we are talking hangover city…
  • Legalspeak…  In this modern day and age… The one and only firmly fixed guarantee in life. Is that ‘experts’ can truly get right up your nose. And now, thanks to modern technology. They can also get right into your ears (anagram of arse, a well known cavity from which most ‘experts’ often speak). I am talking here about the olde worlde (late 60’s) of high fidelity stereo (hi-fi)…
  • Hold the Press!! …  Sundays… So the billboards and TV adverts would have us believe… Just wouldn’t be Sundays without our Sunday newspapers. Recently, in a typically less than daring experiment. Mainly brought on by a recent cost cutting exercise at a highly secret address in deepest darkest Queensland. I and my four other researchers (1 female & 3 cats) spent two consecutive Sundays without reading any Sunday newspapers of any description…
  • Remember Me…  While sitting on my throne… In the undisturbed sanctuary of our bathroom the other night. Because they can and very often do. Another new train of thought railroaded its way through my ever so, over-active mind… “How do you get to be memorable then?”, it pondered. “What elusive combination of words, a catchphrase or tagline if you will. Would one need to use to concoct something so instantly memorable that I would immediately come to mind.
  • Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na… Batman! …  Batman was a 1960’s American live action television series. It was roughly based on the DC comic book character of the same name. It starred two crime-fighting heroes (Batman and his sidekick, Robin) who defended an unruly place… Gotham City. I guess that’s why Batman is a Super-Hero. And I’m just a striving to be, ‘Super Handyman’.
  • The Emporer’s New Clothes…  Dear Psychiatrist… Your name cropped up in the casualty department of our local hospital the other day. I was in there unblocking a clogged up washbowl, And I remembered that I hadn’t heard from you since my last letter. So I thought I would drop you another little note. About my clothes believe it or not…
  • Noah’s Lark… This is the story of one of history’s very special men… And an almighty cock-up of almost biblical proportion. But stick with it, there are always lessons to be learned. Like spending time with your customers; getting to know them and what they want. It works for me and it works for my customers too…
  • A Prediction for the Future…  I have to predict that this blog. Is set to be the most popular work of fact and sometimes fiction. Since the very first invention of the printed word. It’s going to be declared as the undisputed, very best thing since sliced bread and readers of this blog will rocket ahead of all predicted prediction forecasts…
  • Shiny Tools…  As nice as they may look all racked out along a garage wall in their pristine, shiny and sharp condition. Beware the guy with his shiny tools. They are by no means any guarantee for a quality job. Whenever you have a project you are compelled to trust to others. Please take the time to look out for the guys like me. Guys with a set of tools that show a great deal of wear and tear…
  • Feeling Listless  Dear psychiatrist, I am sorry to be a bother to you. I assume that things have been getting a bit hectic for you down at the old infirmary. Which is, I suppose, why you still haven’t had time to reply to my last letter. Anyway, I wonder if I might just pick your brains – only a little bit – about a very simple point. I’d be glad of even a yes or no answer if you can manage it. All I want to know is: Is it abnormal to make lists?
  • Localad Services – What’s in a name?   At Localad Services, I can probably be blamed for many things in this life. But my name (Andy Robinson) isn’t ever going to be one of them. Oooooh no, not my name!! Never. And unlike Localad Services, that’s because at the time I wasn’t around to choose it. That was my parent’s fault (so don’t you come running to me about it). And yet, at the same time, after living with it for nearly far too many decades to mention, I have by now, gotten rather used to it. I’m quite happy with it in fact. But this is where the real problem lies…
