anonymous asked:

is there a way to sell my art without showing my name during things like payments to me? I mean. my legal name is my dead name and it really makes me uncomfortable if ppl see it and also there's the issue of my privacy. I'd like to only display the name I go by but idek if that's possible ;( ik it wouldn't be as professional/reliable right?

don’t worry! unless the name you’re going by isnt something like xX_RainbowDinosaurz_Xx or something then i dont think going by a different name is unprofessional. lots of artists go by a different name from their birthname (like me!)

and as for payments, i know Stripe doesn’t require a legal name, since they dont require any papers apart from card details. the bank i use is WellsFargo, and while they ask for a name when making transfers to someone, they ask you to put a “display name”, which may differ from your legal name, therefore the reciever will see your display name only. hope that helps!

Reverse Mortgage Market Giants Exit the Game

I wanted to pass on this link for homeowners looking into “reverse mortgages”. If you want help investigating other available options, I would be happy to assist you.

Reverse mortgages are typically sold to people over age 62 who want to access the equity in their homes for personal expenses. But unlike home equity loans, they don’t have to be repaid until the homeowner sells the property or passes away.  Check out the link for more information on what Bank of America and Wells Fargo are doing.


As we bid adieu to January 2014, so must we bid adieu to this month’s featured Wells Fargo Wagon Wagonmate, Snowy McHorseDrawn. We knew Snowy was a find when we first saw her working on her father’s trail in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Immediately, we knew we had our January wagon and that she’d bring an irresistible crispness to our inaugural shoot. And those wheels! When it came to the logistics of the shoot, we went through a great many ideas until we settled on a theme. At first we were like, maybe we should do a fun one where she’s being drawn by monkeys? But in the end, it was agreed that monkeys aren’t usually associated with winter and we wanted to honor Snowy’s heritage as being a descendant of Scotland’s McHorseDrawn clan. And when Snowy said she was a big fan of pine? Well, the rest is history. For Snowy’s co-star, we turned to Burt Schlessing, a veteran wagon driver trained on the streets of Bombay, where wagon driving was famously born. Burt brought a sensual, glassy grip to the reins that perfectly offset Snowy’s pouty bad girl look and feel. The two got along swimmingly both on and off camera and were frequently seen canoodling betwixt pines betwixt takes. Some chemistry just can’t be faked! Asked if she planned on keeping in touch with Burt after the shoot, Snowy responded, “wrrrrhhhhhttttttrrtthhhllll.” So you heard it here first!
