Job + Dreams = Potential Reality

Friday nights…and who hasn’t watched an episode of Shark Tank and felt the adrenaline and thoughts rush through their minds, “Why, I can do something like THIS!”.

Sheer excitement, right ?!!

Or, perhaps you want to be a professional blogger,  an opera singer, an actor…

Reality typically hits hard on Monday mornings when you find yourself schlepping to work all the while trying to calculate how many pieces of your furniture you would need to sell to buy a one-way ticket to Tahiti.  Sigh….

Luckily, articles like these help put things in perspective!!  Hope this helps !

Have a great day!

2014 in review – THANK YOU!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Thank you to all of my readers!

This was a most exciting report to read, (aren’t stats always more fun to read than calculate!? Ha!).

Anyway,  I just want to say THANK YOU.  I appreciate you stopping by this site, whether to read just one post or all of of them…..

The most thrilling statistic in this report, which was so surprising,  (and deeply humbling!)) was the fact that you, (my readers!) hail from 84 different countries and yet, somehow, found and clicked on martinisandbonbons.com to read a post!! WOW!!!  I’ve gone global!!!!  That put the perfect finish to 2014!

From NYC –  I wish you all a HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR wherever you may be!

Yours truly,
