Kathy starts really learning and buys a portable scope

March 2020 Launch

Kathy starts her own business and now upgraded her portable scope to a 14” base with everything. Good space to engrave take video or pics and can be used to take better GTG shots. Mind you this is Pocket change but you can see the difference in my ability to take pictures now and the scope is awesome

And now the Reveal

    I think the quarter would be @Ricko @RickO1 @Insider2 approved. Blast white in focus and I’m just getting the hang of her. She needs a name.

    For all of you great people who have brought me along the way from knowing nothing, to now owning my own small virtual business, I thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. No short cuts on the learning of coins but a lot of help on this BST. You all gave to me something. While I was out and down just a few months ago I realized I can do it my way!!! So to all the friends and foes Thank you with all my Love and respect. So for the Newbies here is the baby original macro scope that Kathy used I can now chuckle I have strong mind and hands.

    I hot glued a lenses from GOODWILL and MADE a cheap dollar store phone holder and even posted it to the boards. about my invention


    Now it’s time to chuckle. On a serious note over the past few months I Educated myself ( WIP) and with Corona Virus the stars aligned. I have all the Tech support all the access and all the will to Succeed. You can do it too. Stay strong Time to upgrade. Education or just smarter buying strategies. It took me 9 days to get my business up and running. If you want any mentoring DM me. Only serious DM please I booked up for next few weeks but I will read and respond.

    Stay safe

    Kathy

    That must be great for coin examination and looking at details. Fun!

    As for the images...well they're obviously not that great. But that's not really the point, right?
