This is going to be quick update.
Every dollar earned digitally is now being deposited in a business bank account at Sunrise Banks.
DreamFreely.Org is up and running; with products to sell: websites, and apparel, and virtual conferences ... I'm thinking.
PLEASE, check out the website and lmk what you think; it's TwinCities Startup Week this week, and I'm using this to network – any suggestions ?
I also got CultureClap.com back up and running; with a list of all of the projects currently in open-rotation ... The mark of a true web-developer ... they make all of their personal sites using WordPress because it's just simply easier ! jaja
As well as another product called Ex0-CTO; where I help those as a non-equity-holding technical co-founder for 12 months.
ALSO – I'm so excited about this — idioke.com is back up and running.
Total update ~ just tongue-twisters now.
And each one has about seven languages that it is translated into automatically; as I wrote a script to access the Deepl API; though may run to the Google API as well, for languages Deepl doesn't service.
I've also started a new project called FUCK VANITY.
This is was an idea that serves two-purposes.
1) I built a drop-shipping apparel company using WordPress, WooCommerce, Printful and Stripe.
2) The current line serves as a base for generating income and funding genderqueer clothing, and designers.
While I also started making branded clothing for DreamFreely; which I'm likely going to start wearing more myself. FuckVanity remains a fun experiment, and an idea that I would like to keep around.
Over the past few days I've been helping a friend make a short-film that will premier at the end of the month at a small theater in South Minneapolis.
This work has put me in contact with a few other opportunities to apply for grants.
Two specific projects are being pursued.
1) A rebirth of the Street Teachers series; though this time we'll be featuring international artists with Minnesota connections.
2) A free digital-art gallery accessed via the WiFi points of local businesses.

I am a finalist for a web developer position that would be wonderful.
I'll hear back in a few weeks they said.
Oh, I also connected with an organization called NextStage; and they are going to help me with marketing; I've got 15 to book with a marketing advisor for all things DreamFreely, though I'd like to focus on the WordPress Bootcamp I've recently designed.
The plus being that I know the advisor, as they are the one who introduced me to the organization in the first place!!
So I'm gonna keep on trying ~~
dealing with lots of emotional stuff ... one breath at a time
Oh, and I'm recording music with Cello; the acoustic stuff, we've got some solid takes!
Thank you all for your presence in this world, and my life.
