  • Turning on the Cash Faucet

    Posted on March 22, 2010 by Frances Schagen in Do It, Know Where You Are Going.

    In our pixelated workshop we learned that money is a representation of value.  Money, in and of itself, does not give you anything.  You can trade it for things you want. Getting more money is only one way of getting things.  Other ways are: Not needing them Trading Making or doing it yourself Not Needing […]

  • Aside – Books and the way they colour your day

    Posted on March 22, 2010 by Frances Schagen in Aside.

    I’m reading a novel, April Witch, by Swedish author, Majgull Axelsson.  It is a beautifully written, dark and awful story of mothers who hurt their daughters and what happens to those daughters when they grow up.

  • Aside – Hearing the Writer’s Voice

    Posted on March 18, 2010 by Frances Schagen in Aside.

    I keep coming up with interesting thoughts (at least to me) that don’t really fit with the month’s theme, so I decided to just post them anyway and call them Asides. I was reading Daniel Pink’s Drive when I came across a side-bar quote by Stefan Sagmeister.  As I was reading it, I could hear […]

  • Cash Flow – a Pixelated Workshop

    Posted on March 4, 2010 by Frances Schagen in Do It.

    What is Cash Flow? Cash Flow is the movement of cash in your business.  It is not your income and expenses; although it is related.  The difference is that your profit and loss is a measure of money you made and the related expenses.  Your cash flow projects when you will receive that money and […]

  • Me and Time

    Posted on March 3, 2010 by Frances Schagen in Know Where You Are Going.

    Time has always been an issue with me. I don’t feel the passage of time.  I didn’t know that for a long time, because of course, I can’t see what I don’t have. On the other hand, I can park my car in a strange city, walk to a building, go up the elevator, snake […]
