Are You Entrepreneurial But Have Limited Funds?

the weather's been fine but how about your work-days? Been a drag? Been a grind? Been stressful? How about your financial outlook for the next few years- see any chance for improvement or change? Or are you a stay-at-home mom looking for income while you raise your children in the home?

the weather's been fine but how about your work-days? Been a drag? Been a grind? Been stressful? How about your financial outlook for the next few years- see any chance for improvement or change? Or are you a stay-at-home mom looking for income while you raise your children in the home?
Come spend an hour with me at the local library to learn about how you can take control of your future with a successful team who will teach you how you can build your own business on the side as you continue with your day job (for now)- but eventually be able to quit and be the entrepreneur that you've always wanted to be but didn't have the funds to do it.
You can start part-time and have fun with us as you learn all skills you need.
In the meantime, think about some of your present challenges you'd like to change...write them down (too much stress, too many hours, not enough pay, not enough energy and good health for your retirement years!) You may come up with alot of them. We'll prioritize them and work on 'em together.

Hi Neighbors and friends! As everyone knows we have had our ups and downs with our new market but we seem to be keeping afloat with a very strong committed group and our wonderful repeat customers. As the season moves forward we will be adding more vendors starting this Sunday with a great organic farm BIG HEAD FARM. We are so excited to have them. So those of you that have been disappointed because of our lack of fruits and veggies, herbs and flowers...no more! They will also have maple syrup and farm made lotions etc. so please come out and meet them. There will be a lot of specials this week including fresh organic poultry from Tom Arnold farms. We are counting on our community for support so we can come back again next year with even more to offer. So thanks and see you all tomorrow!

Bungalow chimney advice/recommendation

Hello Belmont-Cragin neighbors!

My husband and I bought our bungalow back in January and at the time we noticed the chimney, which is painted, looked as if it was peeling or flaking. Our home inspector said it was probably due to the house needing a new roof and chimney flashings. We had the roof and flashings replaced in April and the roofer said he thinks the chimney looks the way it does because of moisture pushing through the bricks from the inside as the boiler and got water heater vent through it.

2 questions:
Has anyone had this happen in their home, especially if you love in a bungalow?

Can anyone recommend a chimney expert/repair guy?

Thanks!

  • hkl Belmont-Cragin homeowner

    Will do Lujan.

  • Thank you, hkl. Be careful with whatever company you go with. Even being on Angie's List doesn't mean as much as people think.

    I am in 60639 and I am pretty sure you have them too since a good friend of mine lives by Addison and Central Ave(60641 pretty sure) and has reported to me about problems. They don't come out during the day. More when it gets dark and one has to be quick in seeing them since they move so fast, almost like seeing a running shadow. A friend of mine in Lakeview has holes in her garage from the rats. That probably means they have taken the garage as their home away from home. That happened to me. Five years I couldn't use my garage.

New neighbor

Just moved to the neighborhood back in February. Not too pleased. Too difficult to find parking and neighbors obviously double parked. Shooting noises at night and the people from the building right in front look "shady"... I hope it gets better, my lease ends by May of next year but, I hate moving! I have a special baby and too many changes aren't good for the baby. We need to be as stable as possible. I am looking forward to buy my own place again. I really hope the neighborhood gets better.

  • Deb R 60641 resident 40 + yrs.

    I'm sorry you feel that way, it's never fun living where you're not happy. But there is light at the end of the tunnel come May. The fact that you're renting and didn't buy was a terrific move on your part. Good luck to you and your family.

  • Mayra, are you getting Early Intervention services for your "special baby"? Probably re, just making sure.
