Thanks to Ruth Graham at The Grindstone for interviewing me about all the things that weren’t in my business plan when I started designing jewelry! As you’ll see, I’m as plain-spoken as always — another taste of what you’ll get in The Bitchtastic Guide to Business™ that I’m writing. Check out the story here.

    Thank you so much for this interview Wendy, it so relate to me. I´ve just switched career from teaching to full-time blogging and it´s quite tough. Not that I´ve much choice though, moving to Germany with a different educational system that doesn´t accept my qualifications is mainly the reason of my switching career. But I also love being a full-time online entrepreneur so I was initially excited. And you´re right! That saying that you don´t work a day if you love what you do, it´s so not true. I work whole day whole night without a clear pay check at the end of the month. It takes a lot of perseverance to endure the initial stage of switching career and standing on your own, to the point that I became depress. But none of these would even be possible if I don´t have a husband who feeds me while my one year worth of savings already ran out.

    Thank you for being such an inspiration.

    P.S. Would love to join your list of fave bloggers. Pls check out my blogazine and if you like, let´s exchange links. :)

    Nice! that was such a great and honest interview! Yes, nothing is easy … definitely not having your own business. My parents did it and it’s more work than the average person thinks. Good to see you’re came out on top though.
