Handling Hard Core Sales Pitches
- Created on 09 September 2013
We’re dipping our toe in the kiddie modeling pond; just to check out the landscape of possibilities. After a complete stranger yelled from a passing car, “Your son is sooooooo handsome”, I’ve decided to let my guard down and give kiddie pictures a try. In my mind, this is just another experience. Worse case, no one calls and we have a few more photos for the album. Best case, we book a few gigs, pad his college savings fund, and create a new memories to cherish. This is me, trying to tamp down expectations.
Off to the first “modeling agency” we went.

I mentioned to a close pal that I’m considering renting a yacht to hold a floating festival in a combined celebration for the two milestones. The response was a somewhat snarky and equally surprising, “How much will all that cost? Okay … Debt Free Diva”.

As we enjoy summer and look for ways to enhance the summer days with affordable travel options, let’s also consider doable ways to create memorable, vacation traditions.
