Advett.com – The True Success Story


Advett.com – The True Success Story

As our slogan runs: Local Ads for Local People
There are few incidents in real life that succeed in converting themselves to the stuff that success stories are made of. Advett.com has just a similar beginning. Would you too desire to be just as successful in whatever business you are doing? Why not follow our example. Let me tell you where it all began.
Advett is an epithet conjured up by one of us for “Advert”. Before it all began, I was sitting in a pub with a Scottish friend who came up with the name. So, kindly don’t be too surprised if it sounds a bit Scottish.
Co-founders of this UKclassifieds business are three young enterprising gentlemen; one each from Yorkshire, Scotland and Morocco. A strange blend you may no doubt call, but after having ceaselessly struggled with never-ending job hunts and redundancies, I suppose a certain sort of camaraderie is bound to spontaneously, develop. Other than that, we had also known each other for quite a long time.
Consequently, it was unanimously decided that we needed to seek our fortunes all by ourselves. Having same doubts, as everyone else would have entertained prior to venturing into business; our first steps were logically not only conscious but extremely cautious. To be on the safer side, each one of us continued to hold onto his existing day job: the Yorkshire as an IT administrator, the Scotsman as a barman, and the Moroccan as an accounts assistant. The marvelous magic of Internet is that it allows you to do such a thing, with no inhibitions whatsoever.
All three of us, having made several vain attempts at holding onto jobs on a permanent basis, finally ended up doing short contracts with various local firms. On account of recession and a consistently declining economy, we were force to frequently jump from one contract to the next. Obviously, there’s a limit to a man’s patience. Being fed up with switching jobs, and constantly losing colleagues every time we were just beginning to know them, drove the final nail into the coffin.
The decision to boldly set out on the adventure of starting our own enterprise was hardly as difficult or as troublesome as one would normally expect such a decision to be. Perhaps, it was the easiest part of starting our new business. However, the question that almost instantly popped up before us was: what should this business actually be? As a result, we unwittingly made a few futile blunders that were unsurprisingly predestined to fail anyway. So, each single time, we simply fell short; mostly even before making the very first moves.
Then one cool evening, sitting peacefully over a drink at our local pub, an idea ingeniously befell us. We daringly ventured to discuss our dreams. While doing so, one of us suddenly mentioned that one of his greatest ambitions and unfulfilled dreams had been starting up an online website for local classifieds, where locals could conveniently meet and exchange unused items that they no longer required. For him; it had always been a fairytale-style dream that visualised coming up with a format that would effectively bring British folks together under one roof, so to say.
This was very much like the re-creation of a bygone single community concept. As anticipated, taking a start was comparable to paddling upstream without a rudder. As you would expect, we were all overjoyed with enthusiasm and full of fresh ideas but actually clueless as to where a beginning could be made to put all these wonderful ideas together. Yet, with sheer hard work and selfless perseverance, Advett stands there today for the world to see – like a dream come true!

These 10 Uses for Organic Argan Oil


These 10 Uses for Organic Argan Oil are based on centuries of Moroccan tradition, and let’s be honest – have you ever seen a Moroccan woman with anything but flawless, ageless skin?
In the past few years, Argan Oil’s popularity has surged dramatically and unless you’ve been living in a beauty-deprived cave, you’ve no doubt heard of the magic potion known as Argan Oil.

  1. Facial and Body Moisturizer: Massage into your face, neck and anywhere else that needs moisturizer morning and night. Don’t forget your elbows, knees and other areas that tend to get dry.
  2. Nails: Massage argan oil into your cuticles, nails, hand and feet next time you give yourself or get a manicure and pedicure.  Tip* Apply argan oil to your hands and feet and cover with socks and sleep with them…your hands and feet will be soft and hydrated in the morning.
  3. Split Ends: Massage argan oil into the ends of your hair to prevent split ends.
  4. Scalp Rescue: Keep your scalp moisturized and healthy by rubbing argan oil on it prior to taking a shower, let sit 15-20 minutes.
  5. Lips: Use argan oil instead of a lip balm. Use it alone or, for additional moisture and a creamy texture, mix 2 parts beeswax or mango butter with 4 parts argan oil, melt over a double boiler, stir and pour the mixture into your favourite jar.
  6. Luminizer: After applying your makeup, take a very small amount of argan oil and spread it in both hands and gently dab your cheekbones to give your complexion an extra healthy, dewy glow.
  7. Hair Smoothing Serum: Argan oil is both a finishing and styling product for hair, straight, curly, and everything in between.  Apply a small amount after washing hair and then to tame frizz while styling.
  8. Bye Bye Blemishes: Make your own blemish treatment, blending one part argan oil, one part tea tree oil and one part lavender essential oil. All can be found at any specialty vitamin store or grocery store, or online at mountainroseherbs.com.
  9. Scrub: Make your own sugar scrub: mix raw cane sugar, honey and argan oil. Rub gently unto the skin until the sugar dissolves. Rinse well.
Eat it: Your skin is a direct reflection of what you are eating. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more delicious edible oil than this one, with a distinctive, unique nutty flavour and ridiculous amounts of vitamin E, antioxidants and amino acids.
