Today I'm feeling Entrepreneurial. Looking at my stacks of recycling waiting to be turned into beads, or junk journals, I find myself wishing I could just quit my job and work at my crafts full time.
Either that, or start my own business.
Somethings I think that I'd rather put in 12 hour days running my own business than 8 hour days making someone else richer.
Aside of daydreaming that I make it rich off of my art and crafts I've had a couple of differtent business ideas.
One is I would like to rent (or buy) a building, divide it into stalls and rent it out to people. Like an every day flea market, or craft show, or whatever people wanted to sell. They would pay a rent for the space and I'd take a small % of their profit. They would be in charge of stocking their booth, but they wouldn't have to MAN it, we would sell their items for them. Sort of like a consignment shop and flea market combined. That would also give me a place to sell MY crafts!
Another idea is to host kids craft birthday parties. The place I work for charges $50 to rent a room and the parents have to do EVERYTHING other than clean up afterwards. I thought it would be awesome to charge more, but do most of the things for the parents. Decorations and cake/ice cream and including the craft in the fee instead of charging extra for it.
I've had other ideas too. But can't act on any of them.
Since I have a family to think of I can't take out a loan, quit my job and hope for the best. I have to stay where I am to assure we keep a roof over our heads.
So, I can have my Entrepreneurial Daydreams, but I'll always have to work for "The Man."
