Transitioning From Hobby To Business

כ״א בחשון תשע"א
Phasma Priscus 23

Well, I did it! Yay! I really want to make this go while I have the opportunity. This is my chance to do it. Oh Goddess, make it happen!

I've started the transition of my witchcrafting from hobby to home-based business! I just got through filing an application with the state of Illinois to register WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu as a business and to get a business tax ID number. This year I've had enough sales to make it worthwhile to at least try to grow WITCHCRAFTS into a full fledged business.

I am so excited, but a little bit intimidated about trying to figure out all that is legally required of a business. So, I bought "Home-Based Business For Dummies." I need to get it figured out by April 15th for sure. I need a bookkeeping system too. Right now, all my receipts and records are in a big box under my desk. That is not going to work at all if my sales really start taking off. I've got to get this organized or I may go insane.

I think I also may have to register WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah LLeucu (my "Doing Business As" name) with the County Clerk too, so that is next on my 'to do' list. Then, I'm going to create a business logo, and as soon as I get the money, I'm going to Trademark my business name. I wonder how much it costs to do that? Anyone out there know?

The Experiment

י׳ בחשון תשע"א
Phasma Priscus 12

I had a rather unusual dream last night.

In the dream, I was not in my physical body even though I was in a type of astral dream body that had a form similar to my physical body. I knew I was not in my physical body, which was laying like an empty avatar in front of me.

I was 'making repairs' to my physical body - specifically, I was painting a coat of clear polish onto the skin of the tops of both my shoeless and sockless feet. Looking for cuts or abrasions or other imperfections to fix, I saw none. The only thing I needed to do, I did - which was to put on the clear polish.

Finished with the polishing, I had a curious idea. I wanted to see if the astral body I was in could feel it (in my astral body's big toe) if I (with my astral body fingers) pinched the big toe of my physical body. I wondered. I decided to experiment and put the idea to the test.

With the right hand of my astral body I pinched the left big toe of my physical body. Nope - my astral body's big toe didn't feel the pinch.

That question answered, I took off flying through the place I was in - because, even as my physical body lay grounded, in my astral body I can fly! - weeeee!
