Hello! I’m so happy you are here! I’m Cassandra Gemel, a curious soul who wants to bring about many innovations in construction and manufacturing. As a businesswoman and blogger, I try to stay ahead of business trends as I understand it’s crucial to my line of work.
I have a master’s degree in business, and I have worked as a contractor for over a decade in Texas. With time, I became increasingly interested in various aspects of construction, manufacturing, and innovative business development. Today, I’m a co-owner of a reputed construction company and a business development consultant.
My Black Diamonds is my humble attempt to provide you with industry insights to guide and help you achieve success. It is my intention, through this blog, to bring you quality information about the various trends and technologies I work with. In addition, I will also bring you info on new equipment and products that various companies are introducing to the market.
It is common for businesses to fail because they ignore key market trends. It is possible for a business to properly adjust to trends if it identifies them early enough. So, in order to stay relevant in the marketplace, you need to be aware of the current trends, regardless of how established your business is. Keep up-to-date with new trends and technologies with My Black Diamonds, and figure out how to adapt quickly to ensure business success.
It is hard to pin down a timeline – until a project has been bid on, budgeted, planned, and is ready for final approval, it is only then that work can begin. Even so, it typically takes 6-9 months to complete a mid-size project consisting of 1500-2800 square feet. An expansive renovation or new construction project involving 3,000-5,000 square feet and incorporating high-end details may take 9-12 months to complete.
The operator’s manual should be closely read when making maintenance decisions regarding heavy equipment. It may be beneficial to keep a chart for each machine so you can see when these intervals fall and plan accordingly. Furthermore, you should regularly inspect your parts and evaluate their performance. A machine should be serviced if you notice a part or function is not working properly.
You should start a business you a passionate about and that you can financially support. Ideally, it should also be able to grow into something significant within a reasonable period, and should add meaning to the users’ lives.
To develop your product or service, market it, make financial projections, and come up with a business plan. You should then consult with trusted financial and business advisors. Make sure your business plan is concise. Keep in mind that there is a high probability that you will eventually deviate from your plans.
As with buying an apartment or villa, you will be able to get a home loan for constructing a house. Depending upon what stage you’re at, you can apply for a home loan with any leading bank. Either before you purchase the property or after you purchase a plot in your name.
It is possible to get a complete home loan, which provides a plot purchase loan as well as a construction loan, or an independent construction loan, which is considered to be a home loan and is tax deductible.
It would be my pleasure to connect with you if you’re interested in knowing more about my work and how I manage blogging and running a business.
