If you've kept up with me at all in my ALMOST 3 yrs of SL, you know that every year I hold a huuuge Mardi Gras party! This year is NO different! This year's theme is Studio 54! I doooo sooo love the Disco! I'm busy making some hot platform shoes and getting the party area all set up. Here's the ad for the party..
So you got that right? Feb 24th, between 8 and 12 SLT. I've already got some GREAT gifts to give out. Since Secluded Cove Boardwalk is helping me host, some of the GREAT vendors there are donating gifts for the prize ball! WOOT! If this is anything like last year's party, or my Talk Like A Pirate Day party, the sim is be FULL!
If you know anyone who is a kick ass Disco DJ, send them to ME! I pay well, allow them a tip jar and I'm willing to give references afterward. Must have own stream! If I wasn't hosting the party and had my own stream, I'd DJ it myself, but.. I get so worn out hosting these parties.
Ok.. next topic! I've been running this shoe business in SL for almost 3 years now. I often get asked, how do I start my own business? #1 I tell them.. figure WHY you are starting a business.. if you are doing it because you want money.. you're SOL.. but if you are doing it because you love what you do.. you'll do good. I also found this site that I found REALLY interesting and helpful. So if you are looking about starting a business... read that! It's well written, easy to understand and really insiteful. Alaska Metropolitan also has a great blog post about business in SL. And another one about how to make ad textures. I love Alaska.. she's a great person, great designer and she almost always laughs at my pathetic attempts at jokes. She's also a vendor at Secluded Cove Boardwalk which you should be too! Since the big Mardi Gras party is coming up soon! You wanna be a part of the party? With soo many people coming to the mall, you'd better have your stuff up before they come. :}
