My Book has been delivered



How sweet it is. My first self published book is finally here. What an adventure it has been so far and I'm only getting started. Now I have to market and sell this book which is a whole new learning curve for me to deal with. I posted a commercial for it on You Tube [LINK] if you want to see what the book is all about.

Another good thing happened. A lot of work came in this month, which was a huge relief. I had my worst year ever last year and I know that I'm not alone. It was a hard year for every industry.

Thanks everyone. Right now I am trying to find an accountant so I can incorporate my new company. Yuck, legal paperwork crap. This is all new to me so it's a fun learning process. I already have one school booked for early next fall.

Pat on the back Steve! The book looks great.

There are companies that you can go through to incorporate your company that don't cost very much (you don't really need a lawyer or accountant to do that part). I did a lot of it myself for my LLC. There are often many classes you can take for free (at your local library) that will teach you how to do a lot of it yourself. At least in NY. Good luck with it.
