I am in the beginning stages of setting up my NPO. I am really excited about the idea and I think it would allow me to start to get over any stage freight. I think it will be good to learn with kids and then eventually be able to ease into speaking in front of adults. 

I have sent off an email about a website from an incredible company.  The best thing about it is that I would be doing all the work, and they would only be hosting it. I think its an attractive offer, and it will be for a great cause - kids. 

I have to look again at the library for books about starting an NPO. I wonder why I wasn't able to find any the other day. Maybe its a rare thing.

Green Wedding Idea

Green wedding products in Canada is really needed. A website for this is really needed. 

Also what is needed is a quality printer of Green Albums and Books, for the US and Canada

My problem today is where to get things printed and made. I have ideas for products, but I have to figure out if it is realistic to design this sort of thing. If the production costs are beyond me then it isn't something I should be thinking about at the moment. 

I am trying to invent a new identity/brand for myself. I realize that I am not special, I do not offer a product that is new or different. Sure every artist is different but what I do is basically the same. It is all about how I present myself. Perceived value is where its at.

I am 23. 
I have about $30 000 in student loans. I take photos for a living and at the moment make about $23 000/ year, mostly in the summer months. 

This year I will be traveling a lot to foreign countries to take photos in hopes of making that my full time profession. 

I am not single. I am not married. I live and have spent the last 4 years with someone very special. 

My living expenses are about $1300/month, and my student loan payment is about $300/month. 

I currently have around $2000 in the bank but I am approaching my low season and am not making as regular of income. 


I have a few goals for this blog. One of them is to get writing again, I don't do it as often as I should. Second, it is a place to organize my thoughts, and keep track of what I am thinking. 

I also want to have a record of what I have done with this business, and businesses I start and have plans to start. Ideally this is for a book later in life, of do's and do not's and how and why I did what I did. 

It is also a chance for me to be open and honest with my state of affairs and financials. While I will not always give details of the projects that I am doing or real names in an attempt to preserve some anonymity I will be honest. This project is for myself, but if others enjoy reading it then good on them, I am happy.
