remember, the 50 mile circle in my statements
is a `starting point`.
never the end all, do all.
many do not understand that.
i like my dad's analogy.
the front hook on our screen door was his `first line of defense`.
it takes many forms of sales to make a living.
on today's market you have to sell to friends and neighbors.
sell from your home.
sell in shops or wholesale, and of course use your computer
and the internet. i try and stay out of stores, but i sure
do art exhibits in galleries when called on to do it.
the biggest issue of all is getting your name value to the public.
and, without question...gather names into a data\base. every name
you can get.
so. i have argued that national contests and high priced
shows that you have a small chance of getting in...are a poor
way to do it.
you may have greater success at a local garden show.
a story in a local magazine or paper will get you many more
customers than a story in the `new york times`.
