This week's latest adventure:
Good going Jeremy! There's so much interest in this kind of living these days.
Hey Guys! I get to read the posts but don't have a lot of time totype any updates. I have enjoyed reading what you two are up to. Sam, you're doing a lot of the things that I would like to do. My first project is to finish a three article series on the benefits of natural living that I will post on my facbook page and send to magazines. I have also started talks with a major farm store chain about doing workshops for beginning chicken owners in the spring. There's not going to be much with that until January though. I've had a few meetings with school principals and zoo personnel about doing some workshops there also. I feel like the only thing holding me back is my daily job that I hope to be able to leave soon and do this full time! Please keep up the posts!
Oh, I see. That way you're building is a little at a time, and one thing builds up toward another. That sounds like a good way to progress without burning yourself out.
Let us know how the speaking gig go. Looks like you have good timing to work on it all winter getting it ready for the spring.
Are we the only two on the forum anymore?
I announced yesterday on my blog "Our Edible Suburb" that I'm going to write a series of articles over the winter for beginner and wannabe gardeners/homesteaders. I'm really looking fwd to it. From those posts will come a book and then a course. I'm going to try and get a few free speaking gigs at garden centers and churches in mid March to promote gardening and the book.
Oh, busy! Importing fishing product from China, shooting video, sellign on Ebay and Amazon. Busy!
Damon, How in the world are you? What's up with you these days?
Sweat! That sounds like a plan. It's amazing how we can take our experience and knowledge and turn it into a profitable thing.
Added two new worm beds to the two I already have. This vermicomposting thing WORKS. I'll probably add two or three more within the month so that by early Spring, I can get out an ebook, and sell starter kits or a short course.
I'm currently working on some small e-books and free video content for YouTube, as a way to build a mailing list. My first 'real' product for this niche will be an online 'Gardening and Homesteading' course. I don't have a name yet. I plant to have the course live by late February, when people are thinking about gardening again. The e-books will come out as they are completed.
