Hello, Hello, Hello!

So, Welcome to Blogging My Own Business. I am an avid chick lit reader ( seriously I devour 1-3 books a week when things are slow at home). Not as much lately because #1 it's baseball season for my son and #2 I am in the throws of opening my own business all whilst raising my gorgeous children and holding down a glamorous full time television job, NOT! Okay, the Television job part is true but the "glamorous", not so much.

This Blog will be dedicated to my passion, my love, my obsession really, with any and all "underdog comes out on top" books and movies. Especially ones where the heroine is starting her own business, a la ME!

I will review and share my thoughts and opinions on these types of books and movies as well as some on fabulous physical and emotional transformations. I am what my mom lovingly refers to as "pleasantly plump" and what I refer to as, bigger than I should be! (I'm working on it - geesh! LOL) And so when I read about some woman that was mistreated or slighted because of her weight, whether she loses weight or just learns to love herself, I get very excited :) And when a woman gets through all the obstacles that I am now coming to realize are very frustrating, and overcomes them to not only start, but become a success in her own business, well, I jump for joy!

Unfortunately there aren't as many of these books and movies as I would like to see (and read). So I decided to stop complaining and do something about it. Hence my new business, Boutique Publications, we will be be going live soon, I hope. I will post a link eventually and if you or anyone you know is a writer, they can click on and submit any fiction and non-fiction they believe will fit our criteria (the list of what we are looking for will be on our submissions page). More details at a later date.

I will be posting again soon and hope to hear from you, leave me a comment on any books or movies you think I should review. Or on your own pursuit of a small or home based business.

Ciao my bellas...

Here Ye Here Ye!

I have changed my business focus which actually suits my blogs name to a tee. I will be building a business around myself, literally. I am shifting away from trying to start my ebook publishing business with other peoples work and instead I will be writing and publishing my own ebooks on sites like Amazon and Barnes and Nobles etc. While I've been published on Yahoo's Associated Content, I am a newbie through and through when it comes to the new frontier of ebooks. I am so scared I wanna pee my pants, but I am going for it anyway!
