Don't Give Up Your Day Job Just Yet
As I work hard trying to finish up my latest wholesale order it occurred to me that having your own business does not always mean you are better off than the 9 to 5 jobs. Sure you set your own hours but most of the time it ends up being 70 to 80 hours a week. So, why be self employed?
I am sure several of you do not rely on your craft to pay your bills. I on the other hand do. This is my life. Yes, I get by and the bills are paid but it isn't easy. There are days when I end up working 18 to 20 hours and some weeks there are several of those days.
This week I will be writing about some of the things you should plan for if you decide to take your hobby to the business world. I would like to know how many of you are actually full time with your craft. I don't mean as a second income I mean as your main income. Leave a comment or send me an email to let me know. Perhaps together we can all grow our business or hobby a bit more by sharing our experiences.
As always feel free to leave a comment or question here or in email to MarketMyShop@gmail.com And by the way, there are several questions recently asked. I am working on articles to answer those questions so don't think I have forgotten about you!
