Support Indie Businesses this Christmas!

Support Indie Businesses this Christmas!

Since I'm celebrating creativity today as part of my Annual campaign and Christmas is coming up I thought it might be nice to introduce you to some of my subscribers who also run creative businesses. It turns out that the Procrastination Paper readers are a very creative bunch, so it's a pleasure to introduce you to some of my subscribers and their businesses...

Don't forget if you're a fellow subscriber you can enter the secret password in the Time Wasters' Break Room to find discounts from some of these indie businesses - more coming soon!
