Interview with Kelli Roberts

Bill and I had the pleasure of interviewing Kelli Roberts yesterday. Kelli started out on her journal business two years ago and has built up a solid business publishing low content books. She earns about $6000 a month just on the publishing side of her business....

Puppies are cute for one reason only …

Puppies are cute for one reason only. And that is so that you don’t kill them within the first two weeks. Now before you all gasp with horror and outrage, hear me out. For the past eight years we have been living in a complex that did not allow dogs. I have had a dog...

What’s with the sense of entitlement?

I joined Etsy recently as a seller. I was looking for a platform that would enable me to create digital art and supplies as a creative outlet, apart from my normal business enterprises. I spent a lot of time in the forums reading and getting to know how...

Julie & Julia

I love watching movies. Almost as much as reading books. Movies allow me to escape and lose myself in a world that does not resemble my own. My favourites are those that are mythical and magical. Those that free me from the stress of daily life and allow me to...

The circle contracts

This year has been a year of loss. My circle of friends and family has shrunk significantly. Not through death though. Some of the shrinkage has been a deliberate choice. Some have been coming for a long time. And for some, there is no explanation. Losing people in...

Frankly my dear …

It takes us a lifetime to get over ourselves. All my life I have been the ’emotional’ one. The person that wears their heart on their sleeve. The first one to extend the olive branch. The first one to say ‘I love you’.  I am often dismissed and...
