Getting up there

My current total is $805, slowly I am getting there. I have been so focused on getting my book done, I haven’t really been doing much else to make money. I have also been helping my friend set up her own business.

I did do some market research and redid my business pricelist. As soon as my book is finished I will be focussing more on my own business.

I am booked in for an opal show on Nov 25th. It only takes a couple of hours and I usually make $100. It is my sister in laws business, not mine, thus I do not receive any profits, just a wage. It is a lot of fun.

I am getting more bookings for my hair and beauty again as more people find out I am doing it. I have also donated 2 gift certificates for an auction fundraiser night, so hopefully something will come of that.

The photographer for my book is coming on Thursday. She is really good. I have known her for some time. She is based in Canberra and specialises more in children. She is a natural light photographer and I love her work. I’ll post her site later.

So this week has been productive. My list for the coming week is...
1.) Get the photo’s done
2.) Finalise the layout for my book
3.) Go to the auction and let people know who I am etc...
4.) Find 5 other businesses to go in the business expo and find out when the venue I would like to use is free.
5.) Get started on my websites – 1 for my book and the other for an idea I am just about bursting at the seams to do!
