Attending to the business side of owning your own business. It's the pits. I've never been good with numbers. I'm great at algebra, but only because it involves letters. Math just isn't my thing.

I'm debating on whether to enter this photo contest in Casper, Wyo. or not. I've never entered my images in a contest, but think it would be a good move. If I get the weekend off I'll be able to network a little. I have until tomorrow night to decide. Any advice?
