September 2011 – What to do

In the comfort of my home at approximately 3:00 a.m., on 31 August 2011, I federally incorporated K9xMedia Corp (Oh how I love the internet).  Okay, maybe it wasn’t the most comfortable as I was working on an old office chair and table as our belongings had still not arrived from the Cayman Islands.  Nevertheless, it was an exciting time and felt good to finally have the corporation formed.  Of course, that was the easy part…the next part was to have it registered in Manitoba to do business (which I had to do in person) and decide exactly what K9xMedia Corp. would be doing.  My original idea was for the corporation to focus on building mobile apps.  But having researched and considered the matter, it became apparent that it would be beneficial if the corporation was diversified (translation…it could take quite a while to make money developing apps).  Therefore, we decided to create two divisions:

1. K9xTranslations – Which would be headed up by my wife, Brigitte, and would specialize in German to English translations for the legal and financial industry; and

2. Richard Hamilton Photography – For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed photography and saw this as an opportunity to monetize my hobby and turn it into a business.

Effective 30 September 2011, K9xMedia Corp. and its divisions were registered to operate in Manitoba. We also decided that the app development would take a back seat until the other divisions were up and running.

On the personal side, in September our belongings arrived safe and sound from the Cayman Islands.  If you are moving from the Cayman Islands, I would highly recommend Miracle Brokers.  They were by far the best moving company I have dealt with in a very long time.  Everyone was extremely professional and they wrapped and packed all of our belongings with the greatest of care.

Further to my last post, we purchased a house, built in 2010, with a walk-out basement situated on a retention pond in Winnipeg.  Since the original owners did not develop the backyard, we planned to do so shortly after we moved in.  Therefore, in September I designed a plan and began overseeing a number of great contractors who built a raised deck, stone patio, landscaping (including an in-ground sprinkler system) and black chain-link fencing.  The yard work was completed in October and turned out beautifully. We recommend the following companies:

Until next time, take care,
