Especially since it’s my very first week of the challenge. That’s important because selling on Amazon is sort of like a snowball effect.…

Nothing like that first sale feeling!

The interesting…

Shopping trip #1: Results

Just got back from my very first shopping trip.  It was nothing to jump for joy about. Mostly because I didn’t buy anything with big returns.  Just $5 here and $8 there, but you know what?  It’s better than $0.  So I’ll take it. Sometimes I like trips like these because they make you realize…
