Frustrations

Time Warner Strikes Again!

Time Warner Strikes Again!

Time Warner Cable strikes again… Or in the same sense of the moniker “Orange is the New Black,” TWC is the new AT&T. To be completely fair, the actual striking part, as in the lightning strike can not properly be blamed on Time Warner Cable. The aftermath of that and what has me irked all over at them again, however, can be laid squarely at their door.

Time Warner Cable

Time Warner Cable is on my list, yet again. You would think that I would learn, but no, I can’t seem to get that down. What has my most recent ire raised in the TWC’s direction? Several things, so why don’t you pull up a chair and read for a bit…

Hitting a Bird

Hitting a Bird

Make Once, Sell Many

Make Once, Sell Many

I had an epiphany just a little while ago about what I have been doing wrong on all the little side business ventures I have gotten myself involved with over the years, with the exception of my farming adventures. I tend to get focused on production types of items, that require a good deal of input, usually my time, to complete the item. And in the end, I have just that, one item that is good to be sold. What most business ventures need to be truly successful though is a product, good, or service that you make once and sell it many times.
