To expense or not to expense?

17 Jun

I’ve come to a crossroads where I’d like to buy a new laptop to create my albums instead of asking my husband to lug his home from the office. At the same time, I’d like to upgrade my wonderful text-capable cell phone to a BlackBerry so that I can tweet more often and on the go among other things. The later, however can wait until I’ve gotten a few more things going.

I’m really weighing this one out. Do I work with what I have, which isn’t really getting me too far too quickly mostly because I don’t feel comfortable using someone else’s computer? Or do I bite the bullet and buy my own before I have sought out any clients? I need to get a sample album done at the very least.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to ever have to weigh this sort of first time business expense. I just feel that if I’m ever to really get this party started I need to rock out with my own gear and hit the ground running with what I have set out to do.

Big box store here I come! It’s time to take this gig seriously and price out some new hardware. Investment first, return second!
