Money Fail: I Forgot to Cancel an Automatic Subscription

Written by , Posted in Life, Money & Finances

Failure isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes making a mistake can be a blessing in disguise, as it is with this money fail.A few days ago, I logged into my online banking to check my balance. I login every day to account for my transactions and categorize them so my budget reports aren’t such a bear to put together at the end of every month.

Most of the time there aren’t any surprises in my account. I have a pretty good idea of what’s going in and coming out on a day-to-day basis. But last week there was a transaction I didn’t recognize for $15.76.

While that’s not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, I just couldn’t figure out what it was for and it was bugging me. Then I saw an email from EHarmony.

You see, back in January 2016 I decided I was ready to start dating again. Since there are very few prospects (AKA none) in my rural area of Kansas, I signed up for online dating. EHarmony was having a sale, so I pre-paid for several months to get the sale pricing. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice that my account was set up on an automatic subscription.

Oops!

Protecting Your Pet from Unreasonable Landlords

Written by , Posted in Life

petsA loving pet owner may face difficulties in renting an affordable apartment because of a strict no-pet obligation from the owner. However hard you may try to convince the importance of your pet in your family, often people just do not want to see reason. In such circumstances, you would need something more than mere logical skills to suffice legal protection for the pet. The law recognizes the validity of therapeutic companionship provided by animals. All you need to do is obtain an ESA certificate. Certifying your dog or cat as an emotional support animal effectively obliges the insensitive landlord to accept the animal in his premises. Follow the simple procedure of applying for the license from an authorized online service.

8 Great Gifts for Solopreneurs Who Work From Home

Written by , Posted in Business, Life

If you are Christmas shopping for solopreneurs who work from home, here are 8 great gift ideas that will make you their favorite person of the year.Christmas is coming! If you haven’t already started your gift shopping, now is the time.

I’ve heard in the past from friends and family that I’m a hard person to shop for. Personally, I don’t see it. I have a very easy time shopping for me. 😉

Some of my friends have also said that now that I’m a solopreneur and I work from home, they are even more puzzled about what to get me.

That one makes more sense because I definitely agree that I’m harder to shop for now than I used to be.

In the past people would be pretty safe by giving me a scarf, a piece of “costume” jewelry, or a gift certificate for some of these things. But now that I’m under no real pressure to even change out of my pajamas most days, and rarely wear accessories when I do get dressed, it could be a real struggle to find a great gift for me for Christmas.

But, that’s not the entire point of this post. I think it’s actually quite hard to shop for a lot of solopreneurs who work from home. Unless you really know what these solopreneurs do for work and what they might want or need this holiday season, you might find yourself hurriedly shopping at the last-minute and still ending up with a gift you aren’t confident about.

Luckily, I’ve got your back! 🙂

If you are shopping for me, or another solopreneur who works from home, here are 8 great gift ideas that will make you our favorite person of the year.
