So it's been a while since I've written anything really susbstantial, but I do have an excuse! You may remember back in April I was applying for the Ontario Self-Employment Benefits Program, which is a government funded program to help people become self employed, through financial assistance and business training.

Good news! I was accepted and it's been a crazy couple of weeks. I actually missed the whole first week of seminars (I was having a grand ole time in Niagara Falls with my family - a related post to follow shortly!) so I've been catching up on them in addition to the regularly scheduled courses this past week. After being home with my daughter for the last 16.5 months, being in class all day is a bit of an adjustment!

The courses are great - marketing, taxation, business plan, time management, financial templates, etc. to name a few. While the material is a little dry in some cases, the information is invaluable for a new entrepreneur! What a great opportunity!

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know where I've been hiding the last few weeks, and I'll try to update more regularly!

Thanks for your patience!


  1. It's so great that you were accepted into the program :-) You're going to learn a lot of useful stuff. That's my very technical term, "stuff" ;-) Congrats!!

    Looking forward to hearing about your trip to Niagara Falls :-)


  2. Happy to hear you were accepted Sarah. GOOD LUCK in your courses. -Brenda-
