    Ah, sorry to hear about the eczema! I had that as a young boy, what a pain. That sounds like quite the eventful day! Interesting how you travel a little to find an ideal reading spot.

    Online bakery, eh? Those food restrictions are ridiculous. Maybe you'd be better off going local? Urban farming and sewing... you were certainly right about random businesses. Still, sounds like you're giving it your all and I wish you the best with your ventures. So what's the law on marijuana there?
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Thanks Mantis! Well for marijuana for medical use with a med card we can grow our own but for certain cities, they may have deliver services blocked but legal to use. As for manufacturing, it's up to the city to approve it too I think and there are new permits for recreational use and farming/producing with marijuana effective 2018. I would probably need 1000USD to file for the manufacturing permit, then extra for getting a commercial kitchen, city license + inspection, then insurance. Right now it's just in the dream stage till I get the funds, haha.

    Hellos. So today I didn't feel productive lol. Yeah, I've been unemployed since forever last year when I got sick but at least I'm not depressed. (Gotta find a way to keep that up for winter to prevent winter blues and other happenings. Maybe buy some weatherproof clothes to run in the rain). Living with family, I don't feel as independent and I would like my own place someday but I don't want to live alone . Too lonely. Maybe if I bought a house someday, to house some homeless people, couchsurfers, and international students to keep it lively.

    Today I..
    -Read at the cemetery again
    -neighborhood run/walk
    -Applied to KFC online (yesterday was mcdonald's)
    -lounged around the house
    -checked to see if the flax and chia are sprouting and water them a little
    -got some tools at the 99cents store to fix the laser printer
    -got some spray on-sunblock and some mushrooms at Grocery Outlet. Gonna try to induce mycelium production to experiment with growing mushrooms. Need to call local coffee shops to see if they have free uses coffee grinds available
    -watched episode 12 of outlaw star while working out with squats and some chest/arms. Luckily Aisha didn't get blown up by the macdougall brothers while scouting on that asteroid.

    Maybe tomorrow I can put more energy towards cleaning/organizing, baking trial bread/cake for the bakery. (Apple cinnamon with chocolate filling in the middle and maybe gluten free bread?).

    I'm hungry with the calorie restriction :'(. Maybe I'll just eat more salad. XD

    Well, for 4th of July..

    -graveyard reading
    -morning jog
    -applied to mountain mikes for pizza delivery
    -ate at Olive Garden with mom and went shopping around
    -tried to fix the laser printer but failed so, I'll save up someday for a new drum I guess
    -outlaw star episode 14 and light exercise was good to get out the frustration. I wonder where that cactus alien came from. Anyway, I wish I was asleep though. But, I'm trying to make more routines in life and ending the day with tv and exercise seems fulfilling

    "I gotta leave things in God's hands. What a hand job!" Gene
    Lolol.
    Well, towards the end of the box set. It's been going good. Gonna have my own solo enterprise too; like starwind & hawking.

    Through the wind blazing fast,
    Don't know how long I can last.
    Where will I end up next,
    Not wanting to bluff too hard the next bet.
    Forcing the way forward to bring the new me,
    Off to to bring new sights to see.

    -got new apps to run the online bakery
    -finalized the first product
    -relaxed for like two minutes in the car by the river

    Hoping to launch the service Thursday through Sunday but, yelp and google business aren't letting me add the business to the directories without verifying the address by postcard. Thing is, it's where I live until I make money and get an office. The local virtual office is out of budget so, I found out you can hide the address after verifying. I just want my hours to be available for orders. Gotta figure out an appointment system for customized orders. Pricing is a challenge too.

    Those "next time" sequences are legendary. Damn, your bakery plans are making me a little hungry. It's a shame you wouldn't be able to deliver internationally, eh? I wish I knew more about this kind of thing. I have a friend who makes her own pet accessories and sends them across the country. She became quite successful, actually. What kind of web software are you using to sell the products? Maybe she used Wix, can't remember...

    Hiya!
    Well, there are quite a few online shopping sites. In these parts, the big ecommerce builders I know of are Shopify and squarespace which use also contract with the payment swiper company Stripe. You can find various articles comparing the two in a search. I think the premade templates for squarespace as a website are just prettier for branding. Both automatically format the websites for mobile viewing.

    In relation to delivery or storefront payment, the various payment swipers that aren't a part of those sides that you can just take orders for delivery are squareup (also known as square), PayPal, and others. You can also contract directly with the company Stripe which takes a lot of global payments but I think their business model is to provide payments services for online ecommerce suites, so there are various pricing structures.

    My goal is to actually just build up the brand and contract products and services like every other big brand does xD. Just package it up all nice and provide good service and a curated selection. Would be nice to just focus on making the brand pretty, customer retention and on R&D. It would be cool to be international. Maybe in a year LOL. I want my footprint everywhere. Gives me an excuse to travel for the excuse of quality control.

    I didn't know that it can take some time for ads to get approved. YouTube was rather quick. Facebook is stuck in pending after a couple of days. Groupon called this morning but I left a message later in the afternoon but they didn't answer. Guess I'll call again tomorrow and just check out my account right now. -.-; at least my YouTube vid is getting views. (Groupon makes takes a giant cut. Best as a way to advertise. Maybe I can get some Yelp reviews). Yesterday was like 35 views and today is 50. Not bad for an average daily budget of a $1.

    In other news I have a meat packing job. I feel gross everyday. When I eat meat I think about work. Just need to save money to try out this one franchise. I'm a little hesitant because I've never actually gone this far in starting my own businesses, where I've launched it enough for a digital presence and have the legal paperwork done.

    Waiting for some physical ads to come in the mail. But I feel sad that there are no customers yet. I wish I had more dough to expand my digital marketing campaign but I guess I gotta do what I can without getting burnt out. Gotta cast some magic on this. Paguasanfa paguasanfa. (How is it spelled)?

    I need more magic to happen. I dislike how things take longer and cost more than originally planned. XD.
