This is the last Friday in Match and PFS hopes it has seen you in a good stead. We welcome you to the end of another week, and whatever challenges you faced this past week, that you have learned important lessons and come out with more resilience.

month-end-reflection
Today we say goodbye to March for this year.

It is usually around this time, that it is always encouraged that we pause for a moment to reflect. Reflecting on your entire month, takes less of the details of everyday, but the key highlights of your month:

1. Did you achieve any set goals?

2. Did anything happen this month that will affect the goals you have set/ planned to set for April? If so, how will you facilitate the change?

3.What did you learn in March?

4. What do you want to learn and achieve in April.

This is PFS’ way of encouraging you to do that major reflection over the weekend.

We are at the end of our ‘DREAM’ series in us daring our customers, to do good.

By now you should have a clear idea of what dreams you have for your life and how they shape your decisions, choices and future. We encourage you, to keep these dreams close and always in your consciousness;  this prevents any likelihood of you losing your sense of direction often.

Our final Dream quote comes from Oprah Winfrey; “the biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” In April, we will introduce “Aspire” – to be ambitious and to be of value. We look forward!!!

And let us not ignore that it is Friday and Boys & Girls Champs is in full swing. PFS supports all teams and encourage good sportsmanship.

 

Happy Business Wednesday!!!

PFS welcomes you to another mid-week, the final mid-week March 2017 will see. Come Friday, we should be reflecting on our month and what to work on next. If the saying goes, ‘time waits on no man, then we should not waste any time’.

To kick start our business corner, we give some advice for the start-up thinkers:

Considering Starting Your Own Business-

We share with you one of the popular myths, that you ‘just need’ to price yourself lower than any competition you may have to win. In debunking this myth, you must realise, there is no ‘one’ formula to win and you need to have from the very beginning; a clear definition of what ‘winning means to you’. Remember, an entrepreneur/ any start-up should do best to solve problem, not just to make money.

Entrepreneurial Advice
And this one is for our Micro and Small business operators:

Josh London tells us: “Be the best at what matters most.” Whatever it is that matters most to you, become the expert on it. If solving socio-economic problems matter to you, then become the expert on solving the problems of each of your customers. 

Many small business operators have still not fully come to grasp realistically, how new taxes will impact them. Regardless of your service or status, keeping abreast with current information and always thinking how to not only stay afloat, but do so meaningfully, means that using information available to you to make practical decisions and choices, becomes important. 

With that PFS sends you off to a productive mid week!!! See you on Friday!!!

Happy Monday!!!!

today-is-the-only-day-you-will-never-see-tomorrow
It’s the final Monday in March and we hope the nearing month end finds you in a good place.

We hope your week is off to the right start, if it has not been, the sun is still shining brightly, perfect opportunity to give your day a turn around for the better. We send you into the week with our inspirational quote from Aesop, “no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

Productivity Increase
Our team Productivity tip for the week is:

Collaborating!!! Why does overall performance of a business rely on cohesive teams? Think of the wealth of ideas that you can get from collaborating on an idea with your teammates…. Cue, if you feel stuck on an idea or completing a task, ask one of your teammates; you would be amazed at the ideas you can get by striking  up a conversation.

We send you off into an inspired week. Have a productive week family!!!

 

How are you enjoying your Friday???

happy-friday

Despite a week filled with mixed feelings of elation/ not-so-much, for the most part, we have all made it; all who are with us and in this we must give thanks.What is it about a Friday that brightens the mood???

As a part of citizenship is honouring tax obligations, you have until tomorrow to file income tax returns. Attention all companies, self employed persons and others, TAJ will be open tomorrow at select locations to facilitate such filings. In this case, it is better late than later than tomorrow; as you will then start to incur penalty charges. Avoid the extra costs.

Thanks to Digicel Foundation and Itelbpo Smart Solutions, for adding merry to the lives of wards of the state at the Blossom Gardens Child Care Facility. Remember that ‘play’ is an integral part of children’s development. The gesture is much applauded.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” On account of Eleanor Roosevelt with such a genius quote, have a dreamy weekend!!!

 

 

 

Happy Business Wednesday!!!

Wednesday is rumoured to be the last day you have a chance of making your business productive. The saying goes, if it is not achieved by Wednesday… chances are it is next week??? We know for our customers, productivity is everyday and we have been proving this rumour wrong!!! Let’s start taking care of business!!!

Entrepreneurial Advice

This week we give some our attention to our entrepreneurs, who niche in the industry is mostly small, but the economy would be incomplete without them. Does the new tax package have you quaking in your boots ??? (well the taxes that have not yet been implemented that is). Our tip comes from Ezra Firestone and could not be more relevant: “face the inevitable with joy. Things are  going to happen; be happy about them.Only you get to decide how you’re going to judge what happens to you. Also, specialize: be good at one thing and be known for one thing.” It’s almost as though Ezra could have seen into the future. How about the part where she said, ‘be happy’?

Considering Starting Your Own Business-

Our advice in the start-up corner is geared towards the innovators themselves and not so much the market or the business. It is simple: “if your motivation to start a business is just making rather than solving a problem; it is highly likely you are setting yourself up for a failure.” You are better off when you focus on solving problems, and money becomes a byproduct of your venture’s success. (adopted)

Food for the Soul
As citizens we enter a new era of financial management and though we are not directly charged with making decisions that affect the country; we are certainly directly charged with making decisions that affect our homes and families. Be smart and be prepared. Pray for our leaders while you are at it. Have a blessed Wednesday family!!!

 

Have a Bountiful Monday!!!!

today-is-the-only-day-you-will-never-see-tomorrow

Welcome to another week PFS family!!! We hope that you rested much over the weekend and are ready to take on all the tasks of this week. What do we mean by a bountiful week, though? We mean we hope you reap rewards for your hard work in large quantities. That you are showered with encouragement and A feeling of belonging, from those who matter to you most.

inspiration-for-the-week
And our contribution to your weekly inspiration comes from:

Franklin D. Roosevelt, having the saying, “Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”

Productivity Increase

Inspiration, happiness, creativity etc, all effect the outcome of team efforts. Today’s productivity tip is: “create/ensure there is a system of accountability; where each team member has a specific task or responsibility” This encourages each individual to put more effort into their tasks, as they know they are responsible for the quality outcome.

Despite the economic uncertainty that may be plaguing some of our minds, let us focus more on the positives and take a ‘can-do’ attitude. Doing your best this week and trying to improve in some way from last week: you can do it!!!! 

Our Future Deserves to Dream…..

happy-friday
It is Friday!!! Most customers who are parents are going about their work and chores, with half of them inside the exam room with their children…. Are you one???
GSAT 2017
Yes it day 2 of this (labeled by some as arduous) exam that children take, performing their utmost best to go to the school of their choice. PFS sends out our prayers and best wishes to the children who are being tested, and their anxious parents. We want to encourage that regardless the results, that parents continue to provide endless support and love to their children.

pfs-dares-you-to-1

Dear Children: ‘you are the future of our country and you have a right to dream and dream big!!! The future, which will be your time, can be anything you dream it to be. Let all that you learn, take turn in shaping each of you into responsible and patriotic citizens that are committed to their country. How you see the world, children, does not always have to be forever, and we hope that you use the knowledge that those before have left for you and learn from their lessons. It seems a big task for your small shoulders; and though it should stay in your mind and help in shaping some decisions as you mature ; we also concede that you are on a journey and we wish you well on it. You got this kids!!!!’

With that said, PFS sends you off into a day of productivity and a weekend of rest and reprieve for all. Have a great weekend family!!!
