Business Review: Turntable Kitchen

I like to review websites, blogs, and other things here on Rawr Academy because I enjoy showing my appreciation for the effort and creativity others put into their work. I know our little shop can get there one day with a little bit of effort and creativity of its own. Most of my reviews are…

Pushing Myself to do More For Family & Business

Hello my little baby, I’m writing this from bed on my cellphone because I’m too tired to walk to the living room and grab my iPad or laptop. But I promised your Dad I would blog because I’m already behind 2-3 posts. I haven’t been able to sleep well. I don’t want to blame you,…

Be Curious to Learn More Today

I was a very independent child. Both my parents were over-their-heads busy working minimum wage jobs. And my brother was 7 years older than me. I was definitely not cool enough to play with him. I don’t remember a lot of playtime together with my parents. They drove me to piano, painting, Vietnamese, and swimming…

Blog Review: Mama and Baby Love

Since last week, I’ve decided to do a regular Reviews series that will help me navigate the do’s and don’t’s of a successful small business online. We have a shop. We have items listed in the shop. Now what? That’s what I will be exploring with my blog. And the best way to learn is…

The Art of Giving Up and Starting Over

Hello my baby, For the past week, I’ve been trying to wake up earlier to blog daily. So far, so good. One of the reasons I’m trying to be more productive is because I don’t want to pass on my bad traits onto you. I tend to be inconsistent in my efforts and I tend…

English Muffin Taco Recipe

Introduction Since the beginning of my relationship with Greg, I have chronicled all of our recipes in a little notebook. Each recipe comes with a story of the making and little anecdotes of our day-to-day life. One day, we’ll have enough to print out own little recipe book to share with friends and family. So…

Shop Updates: One Month Later

We opened our etsy shop RawrAcademy on March 5. After a month, we still haven’t gotten any sales. However, we have managed to list over 35 items. So we’re getting there, I can feel it. Greg has been working hard at the SEO aspect of things, as well as the social media connectivity. After asking…

Do What You Love When You’re Ready, Sort of

When my boyfriend and I decided to have a baby, it was easy. We definitely knew we wanted kids together and we just decided to start a family sooner than later. That’s a bit unconventional for most people, but waiting a few months or a few years would not have changed our decision to have…

Blog Review: Happy Little Bento

Before I even decided I wanted to take this blog to the next level, I have been a big blog reader. It truly fascinates me to see so many people wanting to write, finding time to do it, actually doing it, and then building an audience with it. Not to mention those who actually make…

Swinging Moods: Bad for Business?

Hello my little avocado, How are you my little one? Wish you could be with us right now. Picture me at the couch watching TV, your dog sister Myla curled up next to me, and your Dad working at the computer. It’s a pretty happy scene, non? We skipped out on a Tycho concert at…

Work That Makes You Proud

Hello my little baby, I felt you move the other day. It was beautiful. We created you! You’re moving! You can hear me! You even went to your first concert (RAC is amazing!) Nothing about your development fails to delight me. You keep growing, my little orange, okay? I’m so proud of you. I carry…
