What’s this all about?

I love to write and I love to “talk shop,” so this blog and newsletter scratches both of those itches.  Mostly it’s a compilation of all of my small business hindsight, so you can learn from my mistakes, blunders and missteps.

I keep the lights on here with affiliate links.  This means that sometimes when you buy something using a link on this site, I’ll get a small commission at no cost to you.  This way, I can keep writing without charging subscribers.

Of course, I only recommend stuff that I love myself.

If you have ideas for this blog or newsletter, email me at paige@paigespage.NET.

IMPORTANT:  It’s Paigespage.NET (not .com!).  The “.com” address was too darn expensive.
