My biggest challenge this week and all the upcoming month is no work coming in. After spending many days to learn about adwords I'm going to try and start a campaign tomorrow.

Wranglers. I had to deal with wranglers all week. Today's customer... If I'd known he was going to create so much drama even when he gave me the go ahead with an upfront price.

And a job for a woman next week. I'm going to call her back tomorrow to cancel. I can feel she's going to cause me trouble about the amount. When they don't understand the rate on the phone even if you explain it 3 different ways and I bet she thinks I'm doing the job for the price lower than my one hour minimum rate.
