As a mom I am always trying to think up ways to earn extra money. Since every job I had working for an employer has failed miserably and often resulted in threats of a lawsuit (from them, not me :)I often try to think of ideas that I can do on my own. My favorite part was coming up with names for my 'companies' and yes, I write this in plural since there have been many. Now, don't be a hater and scam my business names here because you never know, I may decide to revive them one day. In other words, never. By the way, all of these business attempts completely tanked. Do not try these at home. 1) "Pillow Talk" - This was my name I gave my custom (and I use the word 'custom' extremely lightly) pillow making business. Because if you like lumpy pillows made from from 'salvaged' fabric then I'm your gal. 2) "Sign Language" - I was (and still am, my backyard looks like a flippin' scrabble game gone to hell) a lover of words painted on signs. The more rustic, the better. Why not earn a little cash with my stenciling prowess? 3) "Cakewalk" - For my cake baking business named after my fondness for childhood cakewalks. That business went down the drain shortly after a bride's top tier of her wedding cake blew to shit. In my defense, the wedding was outside, in August, with a serious hot wind. You can't argue with nature, bridezilla. 4) "From Our Table To Yours" - No, I wasn't trying to sell my dinner leftovers. Instead it was a personal homemade dinner delivery business. All was going pretty well until one of our clients decided to solicit my business partner with something other than potatoes au gratin. 5) "HerbiWhores" - C'Mon is that cute or what? What could be better than growing a bunch of herbs and selling them at the farmers market as fresh cut bouquets? We even had a little teaser idea, "Buy our herbs, get a free hoe." The market wasn't exactly thrilled with our choice of word play.
