Black and white photo of colored pencils with one pencil tip colored hot vivid pinkThis past week was a busy one for me…and since it included over 900 miles of driving, I was grateful that the tasks in Week 7 of the Empire Building Kit were lighter than usual.

Mostly, this week’s focus was thinking (in part) …

  • about the pros and cons of running an anonymous business (not for me)
  • about how to gauge the size of your small business market
  • about the perils of “free” money


  • about how big your blog readership should be before you attempt a launch of a new product

Suffice to say that these are not NEW thoughts for me, but ones that are helpful to reconsider all the same.  I’m constantly trying to think outside the box; sometimes my husband reminds me that its possible to think


With that in mind, I’m looking forward to a week of less sitting and more action.   If you are curious about how to build your own empire, pop on over to Chris Guillebeau’s Art of Nonconformity blog, or link through the Empire Building Kit button on my blog sidebar to read all about it.

And remember…

Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.
