Book Score and Business Stuff...

I went to Business Victoria this afternoon to find out about the Venture Program. Briefly, it includes close to 75 hours of training workshops (including business development, marketing, research, bookkeeping & more), text & materials, 6 hours of business counselling, newsletter, use of their library, listing in their directory and more. They have a free info session on the 15th, and that's where I'm going to start. It's a two hour "Smart Start: Business Start-Up Essentials". Sounds like a good idea. I was thoroughly intimidated by just walking in the door. Wait 'til I tell them I want to start an alternative menstrual product business! Ah, well. I have to start somewhere. And one of the workshops is how to do presentations - something I desperately need!

After that, I hit the used bookstores looking for menstrual books and found lots in almost new and new condition. Here's what I found:

The New Menopausal Years: The Wise Woman Way by Weed
Red Flower: Rethinking Menstruation by Taylor
The Wise Wound: Menstruation and Everywoman by Shuttle & Redgrove
No More Periods? by Rako
Vinnie's Cramp Kicking Remedies and Other Clever Cures for PMS, Bloating and More! by Brand

Some fabulous finds to add to my collection. I also ordered these from Amazon.com today:

105 Ways to Celebrate Menstruation by McBride
Capitalizing on the Curse: The Business of Menstruation by Kissling

Can't wait until they get here. They've been on my wishlist for a long time! I absolutely adore books, and when my website is up, I'll post my own reviews.

Goodnight, Moon.
