It is official. I’ve decided to kick-off 2018 with a side hustle experiment.  When the idea first came to me a few months ago, my initial thought was “hmmm, I like this, but it should probably wait.  Maybe I’ll tackle it sometime next year…summer 2018 might be ideal.” It almost found it’s way onto the list of “someday” projects.  But …
