what's next

It seems as I get further into the business side of things, the more I find I need to know and do, and the more risky it all feels.

Find an accountant

Because I know nothing about the difference between LLC and Sole Proprietors or the tax implications of setting up a small business.

Book some art fairs

Deadlines for these are often months in advance. Eek.

Talk to local shops

It'd be great to have my work in local shops, not just for the publicity and sales, but also for the feedback on pricing and craftsmanship

Meet other potters

I need advice, and where better to seek it than from those who have gone before me!

Track my time

Pricing pieces is pretty mystical when it's not accompanied by detailed tracking of the time that goes into making each piece. More to come on my strategy for this.
