We are working on getting our ads up this week. It was an interesting beginning because I was not sure what was truly wanted and I am horrible at communicating sometimes. This is one of those weeks. But I have awesome classmates and thankfully because of them I did the assignments well and figured out and learned a bit better of ad words through google ads. I am getting my website ready to launch and sell and that is exciting.
It has been a slow week on the school front and that is good, everywhere else, is crazy busy and I am sick and struggling to decide when I can go get a bum shot to make me feel better. I just want to sleep, but there are classes and school meetings and assemblies and board meeting, doctor appointments and practices, scouts and young women and church. So I pick myself up, grab a box of tissue, say apologies occasionally, have Rob make cereal and sandwiches this week. I think tonight is take out pizza. Sometimes we just hang in there and that is ok.

It has been an interesting week. We are getting there. Things are going great. I don't think I'm struggling with the work but with the everything else
. Life is getting in the way of school or is it that school is getting in the way of life. My B is going through stuff and we haven't told her. School and callings are busy and I just want to be done with school.
But this always happens mid through a semester for me. So last week I started my online business. I'm not ready to share that, yet and this week we are working with Adwords and working through keyword planner portion and there is so much and it is a bit over whelming to understand and I want to understand. It is important that I know it. One of my other class is talking about integrity and honesty and really I love these subjects and the material to read this week is gospel inspired for business. I don't know any other school that does this. It means so much to me.
In adwords we are learning what good and bad words and how they can help or hurt us. I found out that there is a show on HBO called Vinyl. That could hurt me, that is a bad keyword. But I found many good words also.
A couple of quotes I wish to end with came from one of my other class readings. "Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living and truth loving." (" Honesty-A Mora Compass", Ensign, Nov 1996, pg 41)
In "The Choice", President Packard says, "Be good!" (Oct. 1980 General Conference)
And in "Making a Living and a Life", Elder Lynn G. Robbins, talks about grading of businesses, teachers, lives and what that entails. An A business has loyalty to God and fellow me and money second and so on, what a good read.
All in all keep your head up and press forward, look to Heavenly Father for guidance in all things and don't forget to look back to see how far you've come.

Freaking me out. My head is spinning and I think I am getting a migraine headache. I just wanted to do a little online crafting business. Make enough money now to take a nice vacation once in a while. But, crazy, I need a business license, a EIN number and possibly a seller permit and county licenses. Freaking out right now...maybe I bit off too much but than that means I don't get to do any of it and this is why I am in business school, to help myself and my family, in the future. I think it really comes down to not wanting to make a mistake. I don't want to get it wrong and I don't want to get into trouble if I do get it wrong.
