I said it would be game-changing #Business development#money November 5 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatariel My latest project, Offbeat Vendors officially launched today … impeccably timed with a front page story on CNN.com. The timing was a total random coincidence, but pretty fucking awesome. Thus far, Vendors is proving to be the game-changer I'd hoped. Five days into November 2010, gross revenue has already exceeded the entire month of January 2010. In other game-changing news, we finally signed on the refi we've been working on for … oh, four months? Our mortgage costs are going down over $500/mo which is awesome. And now I need a bath and to go to bed at like 8pm tonight. I'm fucking exhausted from all this whore-braining. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Pain in the arse, but worth it. Offbeat vendors–under way for a while, glad to see it kick off–wow on the stats. CNN link doesn't work, by the way. ZN is conquering cold.

Also, having recently moved for a $550/month rent reduction, I can assure you that any hassles of getting there will be completely erased the first time you write that lower mortgage check. I still get a bit giddy about it every month — it feels like I'm getting away with something. 0 agree Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply No-drama comment policy Part of what makes the Offbeat Empire different is our commitment to civil, constructive commenting.
