Business Musings: A Really Big Deal

Today was the day that it hit me, not the scope of the disaster we’re all living through, but the emotions of it. I am just deeply tired and it’s an emotional tired. I’m going through, dealing with the uncertainty, and helping others through it as well, but this is a really big deal for all of us, even if we don’t have a sick […]

Business Musings: The Waiting Game Part Two (A Process Blog)

One of our jobs as small business owners is to predict the future. (And writers, you are small business owners, whether you like that characterization or not.) We have to do forecasting, weeks, months and even years out. The good news is that anyone who manages a household has a handle on how to do some of this. You know what your paycheck is, what […]

Good thing that did auto-post, because I never did get around to updating anything in February. I’m writing all of this on the last day of the month and the first few […]
