What type of site is this?
It is somewhat eclectic, but I have recently made a few changes. The main focus is somewhat split. One part is all about financial tips to help others save money and help supplement income. The other part of my site showcases a lot of my old pictures.
For a brief while, I was heavily involved in the local metal community. That’s where the name LadySkullshine originated from in 2011. I used to do a lot of photography and promotion. This expanded to other genres and businesses too.
Besides all of this, I also write about family, life’s shenanigans, mental battles, disabilities, and more.

What financial experience do you have?
I’m not an expert, and I’m far from rich. I’ve held several financial positions in the past, such as sales management, financial analysis, and so on. I have handled large VIP accounts in more than one of the companies that I worked for. I also know what it’s like to massively struggle financially, for a good portion of my life. I finally decided to actually take control and fix this. Now, I save money in every part of my family’s budget possible, AND increase our income. I just use so many simple ways that anyone can do.
Does anything here cost money to do?
I provide free information to help anyone that I can. I just ask that my referral links are used so that either of us can receive an incentive of some sort.
I use free apps and websites to accomplish what I talk about here on my site. Rebates may be an exception. I pay money up front to purchase the items on Amazon or WalMart, then receive up to 100% cash back. I also mention an ink subscription service that costs money, but you can save quite a bit in the long run. I haven’t paid for ink in years!
What is your affiliation with the companies that you refer?
I have no direct affiliation. I’ve personally had experiences with the companies that I provide referral links for. Sometimes there is just a bonus perk for me, but a lot of times when my referrals are used, we both benefit. Companies will often pay extra points or even money. Thank you! I really appreciate it.
In the case of the bands and businesses that are on my site, I have worked with them or taken photos at some point. I’m friends with quite a few of them, on many different levels. Their presence on my site is just to showcase my previous work. It does not indicate that I agree with their personal views or beliefs that may be offensive or unfavorable by others.
What if I experience issues with the companies that you refer?
Always, reach out to them immediately. I can only vouch for my own experiences. With that said, depending on what it is, I might be able to help. It could very easily just be a user error or misunderstanding. I’d also like to know if I have incorrect info on my site.
Do you still provide services, such as photography and promoting?
I do, to an extent. I no longer do any photoshoots as the photographer, or model. But I will always share what I have done in the past, as well as who I’ve worked with. While it was only a brief time, I’m very proud of what I’ve done in those few years. My main focus has shifted to financial related topics, but I still try to do what I can to help promote others.
Why did you stop your photography and promotional services?
It was a personal and business choice. I offered these services briefly for a few years. I just really wanted to help out the local bands and businesses in my area, so the majority of my time and work was volunteered. I was in between jobs at the time. When I started working again, I had to cut back until I eventually stopped.
Why did you keep your site after all these years?
At first, it was to continue to house my work and the bands and businesses that I had worked with. I’ve gone back and forth with not updating at all, moving a few things around, considered changing the name, closing it altogether. Recently, I started reconstructing my site yet again. It’s focus is now split between financial information and the old LadySkullshine Entertainment content that has been moved to the About Me and LadySkullshine Era pages.
Why do your posts seem all over the place in content?
Because my mind is always racing all over the place. I have ADHD and OCD, among other things. I tend to get heavily involved multiple projects, and get distracted easily. It’s a constant struggle. I also move things around from time to time. If I get out of hand, or move something you liked, let me know.
