My life is both wonderful and horrible at the same time. I am in the most significant love affair of my life — that’s great. But my business is in a mess. I haven’t had any sales in months and I am almost out of money. I haven’t touched my retirement savings, but I may have to before things are stable again.

I got my merchant account approved last week [for Document Automation Systems LLC]. This means I will be able to accept credit cards for online software purchases. I have one woman who appears ready to buy my $50 Web Word Wizard [software] component. She wants to use it to do mailing labels from SQL Server data.
