small biz on slate
american express is sponsoring a blog on slate.com for the next few months where a few small business owners have been invited to blog about their experiences running their own company (it's a joint venture produced by newsweek and the washington post). i was one of the business owners they invited, so for the next few weeks i'll be blogging in the "biz box" section about what it's like to be a young woman running her own business (often by the seat of my pants). it's a welcome change for me to get to talk about something other than design so if you're thinking of starting your own business (or just want to read some good small biz gossip) click here to read the site. i'll be updating it on monday with a post on how being a young woman in business has been an interesting challenge. also, feel free to laugh at my cartoon rendering. i don't think it looks anything like me but at least they didn't make me look like a troll.
[in case you're wondering: i'm not being paid for posting, i don't receive any sweet american express discounts (or a card) and i'm not being asked or paid to promote them in any way]
[ps: congrats to imelda for being a finalist in the inhabit pillow contest!]
