Soo, last year I created a magazine. I decided against a podcast, or a live Youtube stream. Mainly because I don’t have the actual tech-savvyness to conquer that.

SIX WHOLE YEARS! We now need TWO hands when telling people our age! This is crazy! It’s been six years since I received that official LLC letter (the one with my business name FINALLY spelled correctly – because yes I had to file it twice). What is an LLC? Welp, to save you from all […]
