Good day lumber jocks. Last week I talked about having patience and it does pay off by having patience. Since I decided not to be concered about how much work I have I have got another order and maybe a couple of more. Other than that it has been slow which is alright because my next couple of weeks will be busy. I have decided to in owning a business you can’t try to please everyone either. If they don’t want to pay the price that your selling your things for then so be it. You find out fast that you can’t just sell it to them for a price they can pay. Because in the long run you lose money on it and you don’t make anything. Unless you don’t want to make anything on it which in my case I do. So I have dicided to just give the customer the price I sell them for and if they want to pay it then thats good but if they don’t then move on to the next person that wants one. Because if one person doesn’t want to buy one then the next person might. So I guess i’m saying don’t be concerned if someone doesn’t want to buy your product. Thats about it until next week you guys have a nice day. Until next week.

I agree about not lowering your prices to the point of losing money- just to make a sale. Sometimes you need to do that initially- just to get a few pieces “out there” but if I am going to give my work away I would rather give it to my mother or brother or sister for a Christmas present. :) During the slow times just keep buidling some things that are general enough to appeal to a buyer down the road.

What you said rivergirl is right on. I did sell a few products a little cheaper just so I can get my name out there now I am at the point now where I sell them so I can make something. Thanks for the advice about building things during the slow times.
