Dear Vivienne,

Yes, you're very right. The woman that stiffed me on the money also lowballed me on the price. I think that should have been my first clue.

I have read that book. It was very interesting; in fact, it was all I could talk about for a few weeks. Really makes you think twice about the whole minimum wage thing. It made me feel lucky that I was able to work as a waitress and make good money; on the other hand, I hustled.

This cleaning thing sort of fell into my lap, but I am trying to also use it to learn as much of the pitfalls and problems of owning my own business as possible.

Thanks again. I appreciate all the replies I've received.
