My first proper biz'ness!

After many frustrating months dealing with slow solicitors, slow and lying fundis and doing mileage across the UK, my baby's finally here.
Today was the first day of business, was slow but had lots of people coming in to check it out. This morning when I opened the door, tears ran down my cheeks, tears of joy and pain coz my body hurts like mad.
I painted most of it myself but I had wonderful friends coming in. I pray that the monies will start coming in coz boy is my account in the red!
Thanks you guys for encouraging me all thru, especially during painting (that reminds me I owe bloggers my pictures)

Mental make plans to kuja to this village, will let you know about the 'the day'.

Pray for me!

Awesome, Congratulations girl! You sure deserve it after all the painting and the works.
You go girl! do your best and all will work out. When u work for yourself it can't get better since u r there, get to know what's needed and what's not selling and stuff. You jus seem to pick all good business traits with time and in no time u r doing fab!

All the very best from me. Now & always!
I'll be saying a prayer for u!

Using Fiction to Sell Fiction
For adult children, few situations can be as tricky and emotionally fraught as watching parents age and lose the ability to manage their own affairs, especially when it comes to money.
