"I wasn't even annoyed at the people driving ten miles an hour through the rainy streets. I was too busy celebrating and marveling at enough rain rushing down Wyoming to clean out the wheel wells!"

10 Lessons I've Learned About Starting A Business

Posted on January 19, 2010 at 9:53pm 4 Comments

In September, 2009, I decided to truly commit to the idea of creating an iPhone App City Guide development company. After untold hours of work setting up the business and developing our first iPhone app, I am finally "a business owner". I did not go to college to learn how to become a business woman (although I've played a reporter who wrote about them).… Continue

Waiting on Apple

Oh, the Club says I get a lot more than just fresh… Continue

Posted on February 16, 2009 at 9:00am 5 Comments

When I told my mom that I wanted a job, she never laughed at me and told me what a silly idea it was for an eight-year-old girl. Instead, she opened the world of newspapers to me by suggesting that I sell Grit Magazine door to door in our small neighborhood on the corner of Menaul and Eubank, which was then on the outskirts of Albuquerque. The newspaper was an important part of our family - almost as important as the Bible, but not quite. Actually,… Continue
