Janel Posted February 18, 2009 Author Report Share Posted February 18, 2009 Well said Mark! There is much of what you say that is also my experience. No one needs what I do, and what I have been doing has a very tiny slice of a collectors market, and I work on a speculative approach, not by taking orders. It has worked so far, well sort of, until the last years. Had I done the sort of business plan you have done, I would not have produced the work of the past 15 years. If I were to have hired the sales persons, photographers, publicists and accountant the work would likely have had to be different to be able to sell more readily and pay their fees. There has never been a starting point for that approach, so it has been a solo flight. It must be that an enduring faith or belief that with effort things will work out somehow, and a love for the work, that keeps it all going. Yes, doubt can wreck havoc with forward motion. So, on with the explorations, and when a recovery occurs, we will still be growing, ready with new work. Thanks for contributing. Janel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
