I finally got a chair for my room.  I had picked up a desk off the side of the road a few weeks ago but didn’t have a chair.  Today I got a chair.  Now I can sit and type.

Lately I’ve been working on an advertisement to put on Facebook for my business and a landing page.  A landing page is a special website you send people to in order to try to sell them something.(services or products).  It needs to look very professional or people won’t trust you.

It is taking me a long time to finish this up.  It’s harder than you might think. Most businesses hire someone.  Well, I did get someone to make me a photo for the ad.  I gave them the idea and they made it look good.  It was really cheap.  Worth every penny.  Probably took him 10 minutes.  Win win.

I’m a little nervous about putting the ad up.  I’m not really ready.  I’m actually quite busy for August, part of Sept and part of Oct.  So I’m just trying to fill in the empty spots.  I’m afraid I will have more phone calls than I want to deal with if I run an ad.  I might even have to hire someone.  This means, I need to get my business license, now that I have an address.  I’m going legit….very soon!

It’s nice having a place to live.  I can grow my business.  I can sit in my room with my door open, catching a breeze.  It IS a little hot in my room because it’s upstairs.  I have my own AC unit but I don’t run it.  I’m afraid of running up the electric bill.  I’m thinking maybe I need to get over this.  At a certain point, I just need to turn on the AC.  Maybe when it’s 85 degrees.  What do you guys and gals think is reasonable?

I don’t really mind paying rent.  It’s what people do.  And for whatever reason, I’ve picked up 4 new clients since I moved in to my room.  They are all really good, generous clients too.  Is it true that when you let go, the universe starts giving you stuff?  Or is it just a coincidence?  Either way, it makes rent easier!

Thanks for reading!  Don’t forget to answer my question about the AC okay?

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    Run the ac for your comfort. Meaning, if your uncomfortable trying to sleep, run it. 85 seems like a good indicator especially if it’s humid. We live in the south, the humid south. So happy for you on your new place!

    I live in a small 1-bedroom apartment with a window A/C provided by the landlord. Because I have very small resources, I didn’t get a fan until yesterday, but it’s earning its keep already. In a single room, you might not need one, but you might and it saves real money versus running an air conditioner. I don’t need to know the temperature outside when I use the A/C. I know what’s comfortable. I dress for the season and use heat or A/C stay within a “comfort zone” rather than try to reach a specific temperature.

      I believe that’s very wise way of thinking, I myself have air-conditioning to be used in extreme heat conditions, but 98 % of the time I get by using a medium size fan; of course is MUCH economical to run the fan than running the huge contraption called A / C.

        A ‘ Wind Tunnel ‘ fan can be acquired for U$ 29.50 at Wally-World, it’s very likely you could save that much on the first month after giving a ‘ vacation ‘ to your A / C, this things consume lots of energy, thus lots of $$$$$$.

    I don’t use AC, M. Just a fan; as it get hotter, I turn the fan from low to medium to high.

    I work during the hot part of the day, so da boss pays the AC bill. Just take a shower and sit in front of a fan for awhile. Works just as well, and you’ll get used to the heat also.

    Yes Maureen, so long as you allow the Universe the space it needs to work through you, i find that it will provide for you in times of greater need. It never hurts to ask the Universe for specific things….mainfestation. That is part of my daily mantra!
