Reading about these attempts, successes and gutsy failures leaves me curious about the rest of you. Any new askers coming out of the woodwork? Any old hands want to share their latest victory? Anyone had trouble with a negotiation or want advice from the community?
Nothing brings me more pleasure in this project than knowing other people out there -- anonymous readers who have lives, backgrounds, preferences, pets, favorite pairs of boots, good and bad hair days, ambitions and concerns -- are identifying opportunities, zooming in on what they need and desire, considering asking, and actually doing it.
You inspire me!!!
