Hi Wendy! How are you?

What I have learned is to watch your spending. Meaning do not over spend in the beginning. I made that mistake and it is so easy. Also stay organized. Good luck!

Hey Carol! Long time no see! I'm doing great and hope you are too. :)


That's an excellent tip. I was very guilty of that any time I tried to sell anything. I hope you're doing better with that!

I definitely hear that one, Margaret!! The same thing goes for us homeschoolers. Just because we're home, doesn't mean we're available 24/7!!

Nothing to add but my agreement with everyone else. Set hours, money, and taking time off. Oh, I did think thing of something--not to sell myself short but to ask for a reasonable wage/price that reflects my skills and experience.
