Lessons to learn
It's been a satisfying week. I worked the day job all week, took today off, finished 3 new pieces (before & after pics to come)....and discovered that I don't know how to market myself.
For instance, while I feel as though I'm developing an eye for yard sale and flea market items, and can turn the things I find into something appealing, why did I think that a crappy, ugly little sign two streets away from my house would entice people to come and look at my wares??
I find this surprising, since my day job is sales & marketing. Apparently I separated my two lives with way to large a divider. I do know how to sell. I know how to market. However I apparently struggle with selling and marketing myself.
I need to think about this and figure out how to transfer the skills from my day job to my non-day job. Advice welcome!!
