42 is The Answer

Answer_to_Life.jpg

I'm 42 today!

And I'm really excited about it. Remember how scared I was of turning 40? I agonized about it for weeks. I'm radically more excited about turning 42, and am looking forward to this whole year.

I woke up yesterday with an idea of how I want to commemorate it, and this is either going to be awesome or really stupid*:

Ask me any question and for $42 I'll answer it.

I know a lot of you have one nagging question that's preventing you from moving forward somehow, and you're stuck on answering it yourself. It's not a big process question that's worth a $250 Flash Consult, but I could answer it for you in ten minutes and you'd be able to move ahead. Anything from "how do I do this?" to confirmation that you're on the right track with something about your kid or career or a friendship, to helping clarify some value, to figuring out why you're upset about something you can't put your finger on and how to move past that. (I can also answer factual questions, or tell you where to start if I don't know the answer.) 

All my usual Flash Consult disclaimers appl: I'm not a doctor, lawyer, or therapist, and nothing I say is professional or licensed advice. Any action you take based on anything I tell you is your own responsibility. I won't tell anyone you worked with me (but there's no legal protection if anything legal happens). I only need as many details as are important to the question, so you don't have to tell me your name, location, etc. if it doesn't matter.

I don't know anything about cars, technology, or potty training, so don't ask me about those things. I reserve the right to reject a question I can't answer or that's too big for this format (and I'll return your money, obvs, if I can't answer it).

I'm accepting $42 questions now through Sunday night (March 1) at midnight. How quickly I answer depends on how many I have in the queue. I'll send you the answer by email, unless you'd rather have a video answer. If you have more than one $42 question, send me $42 more than once and I'll answer them in the order I receive them.

To ask a $42 question:

PayPal $42 to magdamedia @ gmail.com and in the Message to Sender tell me the question and the email address I should send the answer to. (If it's a gift, tell me that and the email address of the person who has the question and I'll email them to get the question.)

OR

Send me a Square Cash transfer of $42 to magda @ flashcons.com and in the message area tell me the question and the email address I should send the answer to. (If it's a gift, tell me that and the email address of the person who has the question and I'll email them to get the question.)

 

So far this $42 question project has been fun and a little bit surprising. We'll see what happens as the day rolls on and more people decide to hand me their question to deal with!

 

* I'm leaning toward awesome. I told the people on my email list about this yesterday, and the first few questions I got in were asking "How do I do this?" on a variety of topics, and I LOVE that kind of question. So I think this is going to continue being fun.
