Finishing Up Another 18 Hour Shift

It’s 5am, and I’m just now calling it quits after 18 arduous hours of working. But, at least I’m going to meet my deadline -which was thought nearly impossible by those that contracted me. 🙂 In fact, I have some time to spare after this weekend’s progress, so -barring nothing major goes awry- I may […]

Meeting My Deadline

Well, I’m about to put in another 10 hours or so and will probably be working a long day tomorrow -even though it’s New Year’s Eve. I have a Jan 1st deadline on my short-term project and it’s good money. So, I gotta take what I can get right now. More importantly, this project is […]

Thanks, Dan from TX!

Well, I am working again through the weekend. I have a Jan 1st deadline to meet for a short-term contact I landed. So, I was just going through a mountain of emails related to this project and *ding-ding* I got one from paypal. 🙂 I want to send out a great BIG thank you to […]

Getting Ahead …Just a Little

Well, I’ve almost finished up a nice little contract and I have another one signed and waiting on me. So, that’s good. I calculated expenses and have enough to make payments for January (in a couple of days) and also for February. So, now, I’m in a position to take any excess and invest it. […]

Harassing Phone Calls and Privacy Issues

I didn’t think to write about this in my last post about “Making Late Payments“, but my car dealership has so thoughtfully reminded me. Many times, bill collectors and big-time dealers have a crummy setup for harassing people once they are in the system for being overdue. Case in point: I worked out a deal […]

Making Late Payments

You know, I’ve noticed that almost every time you speak with someone who cuts you a little slack on something, it back-fires. At least that seems to be the truth when it comes to making late payments or payment arrangements. Today, I’m talking about “Stretching out your car payments” and how I spoke with someone […]

Looking Up (a bit)

Well, I pulled another 13+ hour day today. At least I’m now finally finished with all of my own projects AND I’m even finished with all of my joint ventures. So, now I’m able to focus only on projects that PAY. So, that’s good. And what’s even better is that I made a $1,000 sale […]

Bottomed Out?

I don’t want to speak too soon, but I may have “bottomed out” again. Last week was a terrible week for me financially but some things started to work out with my online businesses. So, I’m a little more hopeful this week -especially since a client did send in partial payment (few hundred dollars) and […]

Getting the run-around

I’m used to getting the run-around. That’s for sure. So, I’m not surprised that my insurance claim representative called me just now -45 mins prior to our meeting- to cancel. She said she had a meeting she had to make and now we have to try to meet later on today or meet after the […]
