Running an online business is a like cranking out a tune on the jack-in-the box game your cousin had when you were little. It looks like fun, it sounds like fun!
And then out pops this huge surprise that excites, causes an adrenaline rush & makes you laugh out-loud (after you finish crying the first time). And entices you to do it all over again.
This segment of blog posts is all about running an online business. I love reading your comments, emails & feedback. Please keep them coming!

One of the things that makes me a bit crazy about running an online business is that I have zero idea what peoples faces look like when they land on my website. It’s NOTHING like being in a room with real live people & read their body language. There are some cool tools out there that help, but most of them are way out of my league, money wise (thousands of dollars a year). But … Continue reading
