Renovations are stressful on relationships

The other day I was reading an article on the new york times that claimed that home renovations can be very stressful to relationships, they provided some tips on how to handle stressful situations like a big kitchen renovation or anything else that can cause a married couple to disagree on something.

For the most part I have learned that in relationships the most important aspect is communication, without communication you don’t have a stable relationship.

Communication is the life and blood of any relationship, sitting down to plan and discuss what to expect from a home renovation or anything that requires a commitment from both is important. As a photographer it’s easy to see that I have dealt with a lot of different couples and I have also seem couples that only lasts 3-6 months because they were never in stressful situations and can’t handle them together. I guess the lesson here is before saying YES and spending thousands in a wedding then be sure you are marrying the right person and you also have a clear understanding of your partners emotions.

Just wanted to share some of my thoughts 😉

Don’t fall for internet marketers scammers.

Quick post today, I was looking for a web designer to help me change some stuff on my site to make it look responsive and make my portfolio look better on mobile devices and I was referred a guy who did a limo rental cape coral site for a friend of mine. I’m just telling you this to be aware not everyone out there has good intentions when it comes to this industry that is internet marketing & services.

He said he was from diseno web miami a small company in Florida who helped small businesses with design and marketing services.

So basically what I decided to pay the guy 50% of the fee in order to get started, I was told the job would be done in a matter of 2 weeks and funny how after a week I didn’t hear back from the guy. About a month later the guy shows up and says he had some personal issues and didn’t have time to contact me and let me know. He offered to basically resume the work and I said I would give him a second chance. But, a few days later he asked for the other 50% of the fee without finishing the job and when I refused he said I was taking advantage of him. I learned a few days ago he never really work in the company he claimed to work for.

I guess the lesson here is be sure to always check for references and don’t simply hire someone without doing some research and learning if the person is truly who they say they are.
