Question by susie girl: How much does it cost to start up a small business at home?
Hi, I’m from Australia.
I’m thinking I would like to start a small home florist business, on the internet.
I would do mainly silk flowers. But I’m not sure where to start, the big question going around in my head is how much will it all cost to start a home business? Has any one got a rough idea how much it would cost? Thanks
Answer by Julie Hodges
You may get a few ideas – You don’t need to spend a fortune on a website to begin with. Actually I seriously encourage you not to do so.
This is an article I wrote a while ago about the cheapest option to get started online.
I know it isn’t easy to get started online – My work involves writing about safe versus unsafe products for our homes. Not much money in writing I can assure you.
I also have the opportunity of helping teach mums in OZ get a home business up and running. We don’t deal with silk flowers though – our work involves eco friendly home products. I love what I do but I know the challenge associated with the entire process of giving a home business a go.
I hope the link above is a help to you – Keep start up costs to a minimum as ideas change rather quickly. I wasted a bit of cash when I first got started so I hope you don’t have to!
The courses, the experience and training along with a few mistakes have provided a much deeper understanding of the challenges etc.
Good luck with your silk flowers.

Question by Maggie: In 2010, how much money should I take to Germany for a 2 week vacation.?
My husband and I are planning to go on a vacation from Canada to Hamburg and will be staying with our friends who are local Germans. How much money should we take along with us in order to get a few souvenirs and also be able to take our hosts out for a few meals? sightseeing? etc.
Answer by April S
Completely depends on your lifestyle and taste. I think since you’re staying with friends and you didn’t say if you’re in a city or the country, plan for about $ 100 a day. Most likely, you’ll spend less on some days and more on others but since you’ll be eating breakfast at home, that will save you some money. If you’re big drinkers, maybe $ 150 per day will be best. As a side note, you can take your ATM card or credit card to pay for a lot of things so you won’t have to have cash. Look at the back of your ATM card and take note of what networks your bank is connected to…then google the major German banks and see who’s local ATMs are a part of that network too. You can use the local ATM’s when you need cash and the fees are compatible and sometimes less than what you would pay at a Bureau de Change.

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
“The Pipes of Christmas” will celebrate its fifteenth season with performances in New York City on Saturday, December 14 at the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, located at 921 Madison Avenue (at 73rd Street) with performances at 2 and 7PM. The concert moves across the Hudson River on Sunday, December 15 to Central Presbyterian Church located at 70 Maple Street in Summit, NJ for a 2PM performance.
For those weary of the ceaseless stream of secular holiday music from department stores to TV, the “Pipes of Christmas” offers a spiritual and traditional take on the season that connects concertgoers to the holiday in a fresh, meaningful way. The show features tunes such as “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Joy to the World,” and “Amazing Grace,” all performed live on pipes and drums, harp and fiddle, and organ and brass. Not only does the performance define Christmas cheer, but also it inspires those of Celtic descent to retrace and reconnect to their ancestry.
The concert presents the music of Christmas accompanied by readings taken from the Celtic literature of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Featured performers include James Robinson from the film ?Braveheart,? New England fiddle champion Paul Woodiel, ?Riverdance? uilleann piper and flutist Christopher Layer, Gaelic Mod champion harpist Jennifer Port of Golspie, Scotland, and the Pipe Major Kevin Ray Blandford Memorial Pipe Band from Redlands, CA.
The concert will also feature the world premier of “Lullaby for a Prince,” specially commissioned to mark the birth of HRH Prince George of Cambridge. The piece is written by Scottish composer Steve Gibb of Inverness, Scotland. Concert-goers will recall Gibb?s beautiful tune, ?Balmoral Snow,? which had its World Premiere at the 2012 concerts to mark HM Queen Elizabeth?s Diamond Jubilee. There will also be a new work featured by a music student of Edinburgh Napier University as part of the university?s Alexander McCall Smith Prize for Composition contest.
Honorary Chairs for the 2013 concerts are acclaimed Scottish writer Alexander McCall Smith author of the highly successful ?No. 1 Ladies? Detective Agency? series and Mark Standish, Co-Group Head, Capital Markets and Investor & Treasury Services, Royal Bank of Canada.
Proceeds from the concert support an extensive music scholarship program which includes annual gifts to the National Piping Centre and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (both located in Glasgow,) the Gaelic College of Nova Scotia and Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas. The Clan Currie Society, producers of the concert, also sponsor the US National Scottish Harp Championship, the Children?s Literature Prize at the Royal National Mod in Scotland and an annual academic research prize at Sabhal MRead More

Actress Debrianna Mansini Slated to Play Georgia O’keeffe in a Special Public Performance at Georgia O’Keeffe Museum
Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
On the heels of a successful six week New Mexico run of David Lindsay-Abaire’sTony Award winning play “Good People” in the lead role of “Margie”, actress Debrianna Mansini is set to play Georgia O’Keeffe in a special performance staged reading at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Directed by Kent Kirkpatrick with actor Liam Lockhart playing Alfred Stieglitz, this special public event is a limited run, set for only three performances in December.
The famed letters were exchanged between the pair between 1915 and 1946, totaling nearly 25,000 pieces of paper, some letters up to forty pages in length. The letters give deep insight into their relationship, their art and the world in which they lived. The reading will be a selection from this massive collection of paper. “The correspondence between O’Keeffe and Stieglitz offers an intimate glimpse of their relationship,” said Jackie M, Georgia O?Keeffe Museum director of education and public programs. “The letters were written during the years O’Keeffe created the works in the exhibition ‘Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George,’ currently on display at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.”
Actress Debrianna Mansini is excited to have the opportunity to breathe life into the letters. “Georgia was such an important part of the art world and New Mexico. She was an independent force, a woman to be reckoned with~ unusual to say the least. Her personal adherence to her art is an inspiration.” Mansini will be directed by Kent Kirkpatrick, a teacher at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) when he is not directing and producing his own work. Actor Liam Lockhart, two time Emmy nominee for sound mixing, will play the role of Stieglitz. Lockhart is also a teacher at SFUAD as well as the Santa Fe Community College film school.
This selection of letters, edited by Sarah Greenougher, senior curator of photography at the National Gallery of Art and editor of My Faraway One: Selected Letters of Georgia O?Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz, Vol. 1 will be performed at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe on December 5th and 28th at 6 pm and December 8th at Los Poblanos Cultural Center in Albuquerque at 4pm.
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is dedicated to the works of O’Keeffe, American Modernism, her legacy and life. It is the only Museum in the world dedicated to an internationally known female artist. The Museum posts this about O’Keeffe “One of the most significant artists of the 20th century, Georgia O?Keeffe (1887-1986) was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called ?the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.? She was a leading member of the Stieglitz Circle artists, headed by Alfred Stieglitz, America?s first advocate of modern art in America. These avant-garde artists began to flourish in New York in the 1910s. O?Keeffe?s images?instantly recognizable as her own ?include abstractions, large-scale depictions of flowers, leaves, rocks, shells, bones and other natural forms, New York cityscapes and paintings of the unusual shapes and colors of architectural and landscape forms of northern New Mexico.”
Debrianna Mansini, who will read the words of O”Keeffe, says it is quite a departure from her latest role of ‘Margie’ in Good People, running through Nov. 24th at the Vortex Theater in Albuquerque. “Margie is a Southie, a member of poor working class. Art is the furthest thing from her world of trying to survive a teenage pregnancy that gave rise to a severely disabled child. It will be a stretch in another direction – like a 180- for me as an actor. I am so pleased to have the opportunity.”
The Georgia O?Keeffe Museum is located at 217 Johnson Street in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The Los Poblanos Cultural Center is located at 4803 Rio Grande Boulevard NW, Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Tickets for the event are $ 25. Members and Business Partners, $ 20
