Hand painted scarves nearly always come from a solopreneur’s workshop, and ohmygoodness are they ever beautiful! I love scarves of all colors, and I keep them forever. I have an apricot color silk scarf that I got in Paris over 40 years ago, and a pink flowered scarf that matched my pink suit from 30 years ago, and several that I got in art fairs and museum shops. I have several dozen very beautiful scarves, and I still buy more! It is one of my true weaknesses. There are simply so many kinds to choose from: silk, of course,...Read More
Manga books are those glorious semi-cartoon images, with stories created for both children and adults, and they are often the work of solopreneurs! The market is immense! The growth chart for sales of manga books is waaaay off the charts. Don’t believe me? Just take a peek at Amazon and search for “manga”. When I did it just now, I got over 130,000 results in books alone, not even counting Kindle editions. That’s a lot of titles. That means that a lot of people are interested in this kind of book. And take a look at the list along...Read More
Online training is really a growth niche. Whether you focus on long distance runners or aerobics, if you haven’t got an online presence you are missing out on a lot. A few years ago I am not sure I would have recommended online training so highly. I, for one, just perform better when I’ve got a real coach cheering me on. But then Nordic Trac (R) took on the task of the recorded trainer, and the whole training business has gotten a real boost. There is no reason in the world why your training business cannot do the same....Read More
I do love begonias … the colors … the shapes … the varieties … the small ones … the tall ones. And an online begonia business can be yours, easier than you think. When I moved to Oregon I thought I would have to give up my cherished begonia patch. The blooms bloomed easily in California, but alas, Oregon got cold and begonias are a fair weather flower. Or so I thought. It turns out that begonias can grow almost anywhere. You just have to know how to do it, and in some climes you may need to bring...Read More
An online clock maker has a real challenge: how do you take that iconic circle and create something that is truly wonderful? I know this is an issue because I’ve tried a number of time to find really interesting clocks, and it has been a challenge. Even finding an image for this post was challenging. But that wonderful cat chasing the gold fish is exactly what a creative clock maker is looking for: a creative almost-circle. Look around you right now. How many creative clocks do you see? How many creative almost-circles do you see? mmmmm. Probably not very...Read More
I love polka dots, especially the ones that scamper all over. I love everything about polka dots. They come in every color, every size, every style … something to suit just about everyone. In college I once took a waitress job just because their uniforms were polka dots. OK, that’s not the greatest reason to take a job, but the polka dots made me happy … and that’s a very good reason to take a job. Just now my favorite piece of clothing is a yellow and white polka dot jacket, or maybe the mint green polka dot scarf,...Read More
It donna matter if you are inclined to an Irish music blog, or a Swedish music blog, or a traditional Renaissance music blog. If you like music, and you know a thing or two about it, then here’s your pot o’ gold, just waitin’ for you! There’s just no denying that everyone wants to know where they are from, and once they’ve discovered the Irish in their ancestry, it’s off to learn all about Irish music and Irish culture and Irish costumes. “Everything Irish” is a pretty big topic, so I’ve narrowed it down to “Irish music”, but you...Read More
And, YES! you should earn bundles of money. You know your stuff. You’ve been around a while. Being a professional online mentor is a natural for you. How much can you earn? Well, one woman I know charges $30,000 per year per client. For that fee they get prompt personal access to her advice every single day of the year. If that sounds annoying to you, just image how much money she is making with only ten clients, and this woman is not the most expensive mentor in the market. And that, too, is the biggest drawback, i.e., the...Read More
What a delight these antique children’s books are! When I researched this topic, I kept getting the feeling, “My goodness, I owned these books!” In truth, I did own many of them. My greatest treat, along with my doll collection, was a new book. That is, in fact, the first thing to know about antique children’s books. “Antique” means 19th and 20th centuries, not the 16th century. Creating books for children, especially books with pictures, was late in the printing process. The second important thing to keep in mind is that most of these books were loved dearly, and...Read More
Go ahead … just try to choose one exquisite perfume bottle for your blog image. It can’t be done. There are thousands and thousands of totally amazing perfume bottles to choose from. My Aunt Francy had a boudoir table filled with glorious perfume bottles, each hand crafted and each containing a different fragrance. I remember as a child sneaking into her bedroom just to get a peek at the treasures she kept there. They were so glorious — butterflies, exotic flowers, dancing ladies, swirling designs, and some that look like cloud puffs. And once in a while Aunt Francy...Read More
