Welcome to This Awful/Awesome Life! My name is Frances Joyce. I am the publisher and editor of this magazine. We'll be exploring different topics each month to inform, entertain and inspire you. Meet new authors, sharpen your brain and pick up a few tips on life, love, entertaining and business. Enjoy and please share!

Building a Team

Partners Wanted

The challenge with publishing This Awful-Awesome Life is how do I realize my dream without making it all about me? How many hats should I wear?

Will readers get sick of what I have to say or the topics I choose for the magazine?

The best way I know to make sure this never happens is to keep other people involved.

Are you the missing piece to the puzzle?

Are you the missing piece to the puzzle?

I’m not asking for a monetary investment. Your time is valuable. I want writers, photographers, a graphic designer, and a sales manager who are willing to invest their time and talents to create a successful publication in exchange for exposure and a share in our profits.


I need people who are looking for an audience for their work and a platform for their ideas.

I can’t promise you fame and riches for your efforts, but I can offer you the opportunity to be a part of something with unlimited potential.

This publication can be viewed by anyone with a computer. I need your help to make sure people want to read it and people want to advertise in it.

Talented partners + interesting content + inspired design = loyal readers + sponsors = critical and monetary success
