My only true plan was to start the business and getting started … Continue reading Posting on Social Media is Not a Marketing Plan.

That’s my superpower, I never give up! In my youth, I was forced to grow up because real life events occurred that shattered the fantasy land that youth requires.

That said, when you desire a personalized experience in this life, not one copy and pasted from societal norms and … Continue reading Custom Orders Take Longer

We tend to lean towards what’s familiar. We like familiar smells, familiar tasks, familiar jobs and yes, we also like familiar people. Sometimes out of a fear of starting over, we will double-back to people we left alone for a reason, a damn good one – typically. Why?

Every other day I see a thread on Twitter about disappearing for three or six months to watch how your life changes. I thought it was mostly bullshit but au contraire. I wonder if you are supposed to announce your disappearance or discuss it in anyway. Does that go against the rules? Does that defeat the purpose? In my opinion, it doesn’t.
