Word of the Week – Preparation


This whole week has been taken up with preparation. With the continuing saga of if/when we will start up our business dominating our every waking moment I have decided to start preparing myself for it now.

It has been three years since we left our business in England, since then and the Air Conditioning industry has moved on significantly.  I have also discovered this week that the industry here in Canada has a whole different terminology to what I am used to plus the fact that much of the tax system is different too, boy do I have some catching up to do!

So this week started with the first in a series of courses I am doing to get myself up to speed and many hours, often long into the night, spent building our company website.  In fact I have rarely been further than arms length from my laptop all week!

What is unfortunate is that when Hubbie comes home from work to see what I have done on the website more often than not he is pointing out words or phrases I have used that are different here and “don’t make sense”.  It’s rather frustrating to say the least and it can feel like one step forward and two steps back at times.  Regardless, it’s feels nice to be busy again and comforting to know that if/when we do take the plunge I’ll be ready for it.

    Ah, terminology, and units of measurement! It’s so interesting to find that you worked in air con 🙂 Good luck with it all, sounds like you’re doing the right thing in getting prepared. #WotW
