I have three large paintings up this week, for about the next 5 days. This is the one chance you get to have these for about 75% off the gallery list. If they don't sell here now then I will have them in the gallery at Gallery 9 in Port Townsend if you would like to come on down and see them in person!

Talk to me, what's interesting about the piece? What do you like? Dislike? Not understand? Seriously, questions are more than welcome. Folks try to say that perspective on abstracts is objective...I beg to differ, it is quite subjective.

So feel comfortable asking about it...I really want to encourage it. :-)

Hey Folks! This is the very latest in my Impressions Series of Abstract Paintings. Titled "Morning Calls" it really has to do with the very beginnings of the sun coming up, and the beginning sounds of the singing birds here in the Pacific Northwest Rain Forests. Deep, lush and absolutely beautiful. Abstract Expressionism, northwest style! Click on the image to view more on the piece and information on the starting bid at eBay, and thanks!

Hey everyone. Im Nikki, the so-called "maintainer" of this community. I havent updated in ages but I've seen a few people making posts and I felt the need to say something. Anything. So here I am. Im going thru a transition period so my net access isnt secure and I havent unpacked my computer so I wont really be able to do anything of any importance until then.

Its not, I promise ;)

correlation between our personal happiness and business success (crossposted) 
03:19pm 18/10/2006
Hi all

I am conducting a research project for university studying the correlation between ones personal growth (ie- their pursuit for happiness) and growth in their business. And how adverse situations in your life can affect such pursuits.

I am looking for a broad range of people to answer a quick questionnaire, everyone from university/college students, business managers and leaders, entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners and basically anyone interested in business.

The questions are under the cut, and I would be ever so grateful if you could take 5 or so minutes of your time to do the questionnaire so that we can gain some insight on the correlation between personal happiness and business aspirations. Really….it’s interesting stuff.

Once the research is done I’m happy to send it around to anyone who is interested in the findings.

Thanks heaps,

enter the questionnaireCollapse )

interested in starting our own restaurant 
02:17am 04/07/2006
  Name: Shawn and Lauren Decker
Age: mid-late 20s.
Location: Lafayette, Indiana
Standpoint: We both love to cook, and recently have engaged in some wishful thinking of starting our own delivery/carryout restaurant featuring cafe-like items. We have a sample menu that consists of soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts, sides, and smoothie type beverages. We haven't done much research into what startup actually entails. That's why we're posting here: to see if anyone has very very basic guidelines as to what we need to do or get information about before we start.
Hustle: We're going for either a trendy theme or "cheap but good", "gourmet cheap". There are a couple of trendy places in town which are really expensive, but they are successful.
Knowledge: I'm afraid we can't offer much now. Once we get going, we may be able to post some marketing and promotion experiences.
Goals: In 5-10 years we'd like to have a couple of restaurants that are doing well!

Thank you all for your input in advance.

inspirational book...

  hey! I am new to this forum and I am currently a student at NYU. I recently read a book that is quite inspiring for those who want to succeed in the business world. It was called Make it Happen by Kevin Liles, who went from the streets of Baltimore to intern and eventually president at Def Jam. Pretty awesome, anyone else read it?
