StartupStella - is she fiction or is she entrepreneurial fact?! Welcome to the wry world of Stella, a home-based hoot who graces the pages of StartupNation with her rants, observations and twisted advice, reflecting the realities of what life is really like as a home-based entrepreneur.
Here are some fun snapshots of my life.
While most of you are thinking about your goals for the upcoming year, I am going through emails and semi-anonymous notes from friends and family members that offer suggestions of what I should do in 2008.
Here, apparently, is my list of restitutions for 2008:
- Do not refer to hours or aimless web surfing as “entrepreneurial and small business research.”
I’d appreciate you not telling the mailman to “wear a girdle” when he complains about the weight of packages delivered to the house.
(This is a toss up. Could be my husband, or the mailman. Maybe both. Men are such schemers.)
Do not continually use your blog as a forum to make fun of men.
(My bet is on the Sloan brothers for this one.)
Quit calling former boss’s work number and laughing hysterically on voice mail.(Well, everyone else thinks the boss is a joke.)
The iMac is not a Barbie computer!
(Eww. Must’ve touched a nerve with Satan, my web developer.)
You can not trademark the term, “jerkwad”; nor can you patent a boot as a, “jerk removal method and system.”
(Hmmm… Maybe the folks at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Organization???)
It seems like I have my hands full in 2008!
Have a great new year!
