My Sisterwife's Closet

Recommended Posts

Running a business is hard work and internet businesses are even harder. it's a baby that is cemented to a sidewalk or a virtual sidewalk. Most small business fail in the first few years. the reasons often are poor business sense, lack of funding, personal use of business funds, poor inventory control, poor credit management, competition, and on and on. you have to turn a profit within a few years or else the IRS will call it a hobby.

Which is why I really don't understand why they went this route. I guess the fact that they're more public figures now makes it harder for them to get "regular jobs", but seriously they just do not have the drive to keep up a business like this. In the past season or so it has become so apparent to me that these people just assume everything is going to fall in their laps. They feel so entitled to their McMansions even though they clearly don't have money management skills or any sort of work ethic. They even have trouble getting out of the door on time and somehow blame that on somebody else.

Ugh, I was never a fan of the Browns, but this just grinds my gears. haha

Based on the facebook page, I'm willing to believe that IF they'd work hard, they could make this succeed. At least while their show is on. I don't like their stuff at all and I find it overpriced, but the people on their page go nuts over it.

I think Janelle would be happier if she had a job away from the family. She talked about how much she loved her old job it also gave her an identity outside of the family.

Yes, Janelle would be happier with an outside job again, IMO. The rest of the family would probably be better off too. I mean, at this point, their money is coming from TLC and this business, correct? I can't imagine that MSWC is bringing in much money :?

I totally agree. They're stuff is just plain fugly, cheap, you can't tell what the design is even supposed to be.

They should have gone with a better jeweler, and just let Robyn have input, not do the actual design. My high school age son can design a better website than that ......schtuff. Some of them have business experience, and need to lead this thing. The others need to do a little grunt work daily. It isn't difficult to answer questions posted on your website, and with 5 fully grown adults, and a couple of the older kids rotating 1 hour a day they could do it and not be overworked, giving them time for other projects. Janelle does indeed need a job outside the home, not only for her sanity, but to dig them out of this money pit. Running a business isn't really difficult, and no, they aren't "new" at it. Shudder to think what the tax mess of all this is. Hopefully Janelle is on top of it, as she is the only one with the brains. But Robyn won't listen to her, and she'll just whisper in Kody's ear on her night to get whatever she wants

Janelle needs a job outside the home so she can have a nest egg incase she decides to leave the family after her kids are all grown up.

I remember that when they first mention SW closet on thecshow, the site was not even up and running and took several weeks. That just show you how hard they work...

They should really check out Sister Wives Blog. There's a poster on there named Twisted Sister Wife and that chick has a REAL online store at cafepress and all her profits go to help women escape abusive situations. She comes up with oodles of cute ideas and products that the Brown ladies should be able to draw some inspiration from if they could think outside the box and not take their iconic selves so seriously. They could make serious bank if they would just have a sense of humor about themselves.

I have only watched the first season (all that's available on Netflix streaming), but didn't Meri work at one point, but was fired when it came out that she was a polygamist? Kody creeps me out! I've always thought Christine was childish - wanting to be the "last wife". I don't think she likes Robyn much. (At least that's the vibe I got from her when I watched season 1).

That "Super Woman" Pendant is UGLY, and at $93.50 WAY overpriced! I agree with the posters that said that they could really make some decent money with this website if they planned a bit better, and lowered their prices!

I have to admit Sisterwives is a guilty pleasure of mine!

Exactly; this group does not appear to work hard ever!

      Thought it was time to change my avatar to a guinea pig who was actually mine!! This is Fudge, the first piggie I ever had, and sadly the first one to die. She was very "talkative" and I haven't had one as talkative since.

      I start my new part time job today in a non profit company. 
      Not nervous because it's part time. 
      I am so glad I am no longer with the professor. 
      I just want to be a ray of light and service

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      I'm hooked on Duolingo. It's more helpful than I initially thought.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.

      Ch. 3 Sneak Attack
      While in bed, two ants appear on my arm. Instead of approaching this logically, I spray the ant spray straight behind my nightstand.
      Unventilated.
      Immediately. Don't do that.
