Welcome to Friday everyone – the day that for some of us is the beginning of a few marvelous days of focusing on building things just for ourselves and our families. Weekends are not just for watching football and binge drinking, nope. They are a great time to pre-record content for your content business, get that quail system set up, or finish installing your new bathroom sink. They are when we tend to have more time for friends and recreation, unless we have built our lives differently.

Today, I was supposed to do a short show – a thought of the walk. And this week, I prerecorded an interview with Tim Cook. And I looked at what y’all are talking about on Mewe and on Telegram and I realized that you need to hear this interview NOW, not a week from now. So we will have a nice chat with Tim, from the people’s republik of Canada, about lessons learned from starting both his content creation business and his handyman one.

March 6, Saturday, at 2pm CT!

Hosted by Nicole Sauce.

We can go six months without resupply at the Holler Homestead. A year if we “do without” some of our luxury items. This has eased the pressure on my shopping budget, saved me TONS of time at the grocery store and helped me build self care into my day-to-day routine.

This webinar covers the evolution from daily grocery shopping to a pantry that empowers me, pantry management best practices and more!
