Tuesday, the smartest financial move

      We had 15 show up for the workshop and I had 11 registered, so this is great!  We are still behind in the books but we are getting closer to catching up!  We have a couple of new beginners and one shows real promise. I am meeting a photographer this morning to take new head shots of daughter and myself.  We never have anything decent for people or press.  Why?  Because I just don't care!  But we are doing the choreography for a big University summer theater show and the are insisting on high resolution head shots.  I don't know how they will air brush the bassett hound circles out from under my eyes!  I will make this photo last for years.  When I am 90 I will whip out this shot!

Out My Window:  Beautiful, warm, it got to 77 yesterday, but still rained a little.  You should see how big the chickens are!  They are starting to get the fluff around their legs, so cute.

     I received 6 phone calls yesterday morning when I was at the studio.  All were from shop customers.  I told them I was teaching until 1 p.m. and they could meet me at 1:30 or later.  They all did.  I took in over $150.00 worth of work yesterday and I was gone for over 1/2 the day.  Porting the home phone to a cell phone although a big pain in the butt was the smartest financial decision I have made in a long time.  My business had increased 30%.  Now the problem is who is going to do the work.  I was so wiped out yesterday I came home and vegged like a slug.  I was afraid to go strictly to a cell phone, it was scary and hard for me.  But I did it and I am glad!  I don't miss clients.

     Have you ever done anything like this and really seen results?  Have you ever dreaded something and then forced yourself to do it and it worked out well in your finances?  Who would have thought?  It is amazing.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. Sounds like a beautiful day! I hope the head shots come out great :)

  2. OK... questions: what was the workshop about? and what is it you do out in your studio? And you are also a choreographer? Holy cow - enquiring minds want to know, namely ME!

  3. I wish you were closer to me, my son is working for the cities theatre camp this summer and they are looking for someone for the costumes.

    I know going to just a cell was scary, we got rid of our land line a few weeks ago.

    Sounds like you are doing wonderful
