Help me Do Cool Sh*t!


So I read a book in March.

Yep.

That’s how the story begins….or rather, I searched amazon for a book under the category Starting a Business for Dummies.

I’ve gone back and forth in my head for years and years about being a creative business owner.  But what kind?  But would I be good at it?  But I don’t know anything about businessy stuff!  Do people even buy art anymore? But would anyone even want what I want to offer?  Is this stupid?  Am I crazy? 

Yes.  Crazy.

The book that caught  my eye while scrolling down the results….in big bold letters DO COOL SH*T.  Huh, that sounds like what I want to do.  Let’s investigate further.

I read the rest of the title.  Do Cool Sh*t: Quit your Day Job, Start your Own Business, and Live Happily Ever After by Miki Agrawal. 

Why, that sounds interesting and right to the point…all the while thinking (oh my goodness, I would vomit if I quit my job and there’s no way I can truly be a business owner and have any sort of happy freedom).

At any rate, I ordered the book, read it in two days, became slightly obsessed with it, read everything on their website, and learned about a Do Cool Sh*t Bootcamp in New York where they teach tangible business skills to the flighty minds of the creative dreamer!  Wow!  I scribbled all my ideas down, tried to organize them and rewrite them to sound enticing…and I applied.  I applied thinking about the other thousands of people that have read the book and were applying…and I just kept it in the back of my mind.  I also put the dates of the bootcamp in my calendar to keep the positive vibes open.

And I was accepted!  What????

 

That video took me over 4 hours to make….yeah.  But you can help send me to learn all this cool shit!  Follow this link to my crowdfunding site!!

Thank you followers!  You’re spectacular!

Post mother’s day…

There is something great about not feeling guilty when you leave all the dishes from lunch on the table and excuse yourself to go lay down and take a nap…

It’s great to sleep in…even if you’re awake for the last hour of ‘sleeping.’

There is something fantastic about having a few drinks with another mother that rarely gets solo time…

Something insanely great about handmade presents of adoration brought to you at the crack of dawn…

It’s great being a mom.

It’s great being able to let go of a little guilt and to know they will all let you sleep peacefully for a day…a day at least.

I know I’m going to treat my mom to a fancy night out…because she deserves it.  She also deserves to not be taken out on mother’s day because neither she nor I like a crowd.  Only a fool would go to brunch at noon on mother’s day.
