I’m hearing some good stuff here, mainly backing up what I’ve suspected as I’ve been working to get my own woodworking business off the ground.
-Build yourself a niche and steer way clear of the commodities trap.
-Build things you like to build, and build them on spec rather than custom orders; put together a distinct product line.
-Market the !$@& out of your stuff!

These are all really good things for me to hear people with more experience agree on. Any other lessons you’ve picked up that would be really useful to a beginner?
