Hometask Plays Its Role As A Responsible And Environmentally-Conscious Company By Turning Unnecessary Paper Into Currency For Charities.
HomeTask recently hosted Shred Day as its participation in Burien’s Annual Sweep Day. The event attracted numerous people who came forward to show their support and offer their services in this good cause and fun activity. HomeTask held this event to create awareness about the amount of paper that is wasted and how this waste can be used to help people out from all walks of life.
HomeTask is a unique and innovative company that helps keep properties running smoothly by providing the necessary repairs, improvements, and maintenance that homeowners may not find time to execute. It believes in delivering an unsurpassed level of service to customers throughout the country and that too at an affordable price. Its vast network of service providers ensures that there is no job left unattended to when it comes to the day to day running of residential or commercial properties.
This annual clean sweep was perfectly aligned with the company's long term goals because it believes in utilizing given resources in the best manner and deriving the most benefit from them. The owner of HomeTask, Jerrod Sessler, said, “HomeTask is well known for its social responsibility and the unique way in which we do business. Shred Day is one of the many important and practical things we do to show just how committed we are to the improvement of our surroundings”.
The event, which took place last Saturday between 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., attracted a large crowd. Dozens of volunteers showed up the morning of the weekend to do some serious shredding. The recommended contribution for shredding was $10 for the first box, and $5 for each additional box. This is quite reasonable compared to common shredding donations which are usually in the vicinity of $35 per box.
“The lower donation requirement reflects our ability to think out of the box to make a difference in a smart way,” HomeTask’s spokesperson commented. Pointing around to the people eagerly shredding away, he added, “You can see how it works. People want to do good things. They want to do great things; they just need a little help along the way. And HomeTask is in the business of making things easier for people.”
Considering the success of HomeTask’s Shred Day, this statement comes across as genuine and appreciated by all. The proceeds from the event go to local non-profits, some of which attended Shred Day.
From financial papers to confidential papers, people shredded a lot of paper. In addition to the heartfelt gratitude of the various local charities and non-profits, Shred Day’s volunteers were rewarded for their endeavors with breakfast, lunch and a chance to win prizes.
HomeTask’s Shred Day was part of Burien’s Clean Sweep which was presented by the city of Burien as well as the Discover Burien Association, and chiefly sponsored by Waste Management. Clean Sweep, which gathered over 8 tons of garbage last year, was attended by around 400 people. Shred Day was the perfect complement to an exceptional event and a great reflection on HomeTask’s ethical principles, innovative culture, and practical efforts to give back.

Freggies’ Fantastic Fresh Fruits & Veggies Delivery Service Proves that Health and Convenience Can Go Together
When it comes to making organic fruits and vegetables easily available, Freggies steals the show. And it has been doing so since it opened its doors. The family-owned and operated business is not only a blessing for people looking for organic produce, but an inspiration for everyone.
An economical supply of top quality, fresh, and organic fruits and veggies has traditionally been thought too good to be true. Freggies proves otherwise. Their superb selection of Seattle’s best fresh organic produce is a dream come true for countless health-conscious customers who flock to Freggies for premium quality organic fruits & vegetables, at wholesale prices.
A Freggies spokesperson recently stated proudly “We’re the best because we’ve been there. When Jerrod [Freggies founder] decided to create Freggies, he didn’t just do it because he thought it was a great business idea. He states, "Everything we do at Freggies is rooted in our commitment to bring the best of affordable health to our customers through farm fresh, organic fruits and vegetables." After being healed without conventional medical treatment, Jerrod was healed of a serious cancer diagnosis. Jerrod believes that people can eat their way to health and he wants to make it as easy as possible for everyone to do that.
What Freggies has been doing is definitely something to be proud of. It is not designed with financial success in mind. Of course it must have a balanced budget but the brand equity is vested more in healthy people. Because of this unique value proposition, Freggies is a great service to the community. People really need what Freggies provides. “For a fair, very reasonably price, customers can get the best fresh organic fruits and vegetables in the country,” the spokesperson added.
Freggies offers a wide variety of farm fresh organic fruits and vegetables. The innovative Seattle company sees to it that its customers don’t have to sacrifice taste for quality.
From their well-designed website that makes shopping a breeze to their top quality fruits & veggies, Freggies has a range of qualities that make it the top choice for organic produce. It’s ever-expanding delivery areas now include Auburn, Ballard, Bellevue, Burien, Bothell, Covington, Des Moines, Fall City, Federal Way, Fife, Issaquah, Kent, Kirkland, Lynnwood, Mercer Island, Medina, North Bend, North Tacoma, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, Seatac, Shoreline, Snoqualmie, Tacoma, and West Seattle. Freggies intends to expand into other US markets as well.
People can order either “U-Pick” or “FregPick” boxes from the Freggies website. With U-Pick, customers can create their own customized box of healthy fruits and veggies for delivery. FregPick and Mini FregPick boxes come with 50-60 servings and 25-35 servings respectively. It’s simple, healthy and convenient. Freggies services can also be accessed through the HomeTask website.
With yet another great initiative to help the community, HomeTask organizes "Burien Bites" on June 2nd, the second annual event allows people the opportunity to visit multiple restaurants for a bite to benefit local charities.
When you put on an event, set up a meeting, or even just give a presentation, you want to look sharp and professional. At HomeTask, we’re gearing up for a big convention – inviting franchise partners from across the nation to come to our headquarters for a weekend in Seattle. We’ve identified four things you should be thinking about in the planning stage to make sure you represent yourself well.
1. Delegate responsibility. If there’s any amount of work, you’re going to want to share it. For a convention, there’s a huge amount of work – venue, A/V, speakers, food, lodging, transportation – the amount of work can be overwhelming. If you try to do everything yourself, you’re going to either fail or go into the event burned out & unprepared to handle anything.
2. Delegate each task to one person. Work as a team, but make sure each person on the team knows what they’re responsible for without question. If you assign teams, make sure the leader knows that he/she is responsible for getting the job done. When you delegate to two people, it creates confusion that often leads to the job remaining untouched.
3. Triple check your A/V. A/V (audio/visual) makes your presentation pop. A good powerpoint can add emphasis to your points, audio can help you reach a wider audience and keep their attention, and you can record the whole thing for internet view later. Have you ever sat around for five minutes while somebody tried to get their computer working? I have, and it’s not pretty. Make sure you can run the tech in your sleep. Need a powerpoint? Make sure you know your computer’s screen sharing functions. Running audio? Make sure you have extra batteries for the wireless microphone. Double check everything and have backup plans. Speaking of plans…
4. Plan, plan, plan. What are you doing when your presenter is backstage throwing up? What do you do when the facilities manager no shows? Make sure that you plan everything you can plan, because something unexpected will go happen. I’ve worked in productions enough to know that. If you plan everything you can think of, then the weekend will run smoothly and you’ll be able to handle any last minute inconveniences. If your plan is to make it up as you go along, you’re going to have a bad time.
Whether it’s the current job market, appeal of owning a business, or just the need to try something new, people are turning to franchising for both employment and investment. With major names such as Subway, McDonalds, and 7-11, franchising accounts for 8% of all non-farm jobs and 880.9 billion dollars of yearly output. Virtually any business model can be franchised, with franchises ranging from restaurants to hotels to convenience stores to hair cuts.
There are two basic parties in franchising – the franchisor and the franchisee. The franchisor owns a brand, and charges the franchisee a certain amount of money to use his brand. The franchisee has to pay a fee and follow the business model/rules of the brand, while the franchisor has to manage the franchisee and ensure he is following company policy and well representing the brand. This relationship is the base of franchising – it allows someone to start a business with an established brand, business model, and product. Starting a franchise is almost always less risky than a simple startup, but there are pros and cons to both.
When you open a franchise, you get an established product. You don’t have to worry about an employee training curriculum, a brand name, a business model, or a coverage area – you get all of that already done for you. You also get experience with your franchisor, who will be somebody you can turn to for advice along the whole way. On the other hand, franchising can be expensive, depending on what you open. Startup fees range from several thousand to several million dollars, largely depending on whether or not you need a real estate lease. You also lose some freedom in opening a franchise – you’re required to follow the franchisor’s rules about ownership and operations, and you’re required to pay royalties to the owners.
All in all, you should be prepared to weigh the pros and cons of opening a franchise – as you should with any business decision. Keep reading here, and do your research. Franchising with the right company can be a valuable investment, but the wrong company can sabotage the whole process.
