I blogged a couple of months back about my application submittal for a micro-business grant from the National Association of the Self Employed (NASE.org). I received notice yesterday that they were overwhelmed by the number of responses for people requesting the grants (never a good sign), and they have reviewed my application, found it complete, but have elected not to reward me any of the grant money.
It was funny, I was sitting on the couch at lunch time looking at the Grizzly 2007 catalog reading through the specs again on the tool I was going to buy, when my wife carried the mail in and handed me the envelope. After reading the letter, I said, “well, guess there is no sense reading the catalog any more, I better get back to work.”
maybe next time,
