The Holiday Rush Will Be Starting Soon!


Last night I participated in a "Webinar" held by Tim Adam, from Handmadeology Pro. There was Tim, in a little box up in the left hand corner, as live as live can be!  To the right of him was a much larger box where he displayed his power point images and used his curser to point out aspects of what he was talking about.  The discussion topic was, The Holiday Rush, Setting Goals.  It coincided with the release of his Holiday Rush Goal Setting Spreadsheet.  (designed by Jason.)

Most of what he talked about had been covered in the blog posts and videos that he had already released concerning the spreadsheet.  But it was good to have him go over it in real time and expalin how it works.  (One small caveat;  If you're using a MAC, some things on the spreadsheet will look different and none of the links will appear.  Tim and Jason say they'll try to figure something out.)

But the real gems, as far as I'm concerned came in the Q and A afterwards.  There were not a whole lot of people signed on so the questions came from just a few of us.  They were wonderfully pointed questions, some of which demanded pin point answers.  Others were questions of opinion which Tim was glad was offer.

His partner, Jason, also chimed in with technical help and useful suggestions as well.

As a first time webinar it had it's bumpy moments, but all in all I think it was successful and I look forward to attending the other two in the series.

As a test for his blog, Handmadeology Pro, I think it was a tight little demo well worth the subscription price of $10.00 a month.

The thing about Tim Adam is that he's just so gall darned cute!  And he really seems to have a passion for helping others achieve their dreams as entrepreneurial artisans.  His sincerity shines out.

He's one of the "Good Ones"!

This sounds interesting. I've seen Tim around Etsy, and he seems to have so much useful information, and is willing to share it.

Judy, stay safe during the hurricane. Have you been evacuated? I think you must be right in Irene's path. Hopefully she will be somewhat weakened when she reaches N.J.?
