Taking Business classes in some sense lets me know beforehand that my Business idea will likely not provide a livable amount of income.
I haven’t been working too much on my jewelry. The most I’ve done within the last week is logging, labeling, and storing a bunch of beads that arrived two weeks ago. Part of this had to do with quarantining incoming mail; part of it had to do with not being too hot on actually goingContinue reading “Routine Log #3: Various notes over the last week”
Given permission to imagine what career I would want out of anything in the world, if I were guaranteed the possibility of capability and eventual success, I find myself gravitating toward languages and books — again.
Over the last 11 years…I feel like I’ve been through a lot where it comes to seeing and acknowledging economic philosophies. This largely relates to aging and having to acknowledge the economic system in my area, in order to further my own independence. That is: over the past 11 years, I’ve been transitioning from beingContinue reading “Diversity of Motives”
It’s nice to be able to type, taking needed time out so I can compose what I actually want to say. I’ve been working on Pages recently, more than Posts (that is, the site rather than the blog). I am also encountering the need for Developmental Editing — I’m doing it on my own rightContinue reading “Unseen works”

I have been doing (more) research on the difference between a hobby and a business, over the last couple of days. Right now, in the eyes of the U.S. Government, I am surely a hobbyist, though this could develop into being a business, in the future. Note: none of this is intended as legal advice,Continue reading “Hobby vs Business, part two”
During the last 48 hours — or, starting in the middle of the night two nights ago, I’ve been driven to reassess my business model…considering becoming a hobbyist who incidentally sells, rather than a microbusiness. I really am not sure about this, as it seems I can only earn $400 before I need to payContinue reading “Hobby or Business?”
Yeah. That’s what it feels like. Switching chairs, and switching modes: between writer and designer. There is a small area we’ve allocated to be my beadwork, “studio.” In essence it is the corner of the room, albeit a corner of the room with excellent lighting. What would make me feel better? A white sheet orContinue reading “Switching chairs”
