The $0-$10K/Day Case Study: Day 184

Back in action baby. Yesterday was a tough day. Hell, I talked about how I burst into tears just sitting on my couch from everything going on. I’m back in action now. Yesterday was labor day, but now it’s time to get back to work. It’s time for me to start pitching as many projects

It’s been a few days. I’m sorry about that; my objective is to update this website every day. There are two big things going on that are top of mind for us this weekend: a place for us, and a job for me. I’ll try to describe them both in good detail to explain how

Day 176

The $0-$10K/Day Case Study: Day 176
