I’ve been much more consistent advertising my business on Craiglist and it is paying off. I’m getting pretty busy! I actually am going to have to do better record keeping now so I don’t forget to make sure people pay me! I usually remember or they do…but it’s getting harder!
I have a short term goal money-wise that I should be able to reach this month. Then I will make a new goal. The hardest part is scheduling.
In theory, I might need a partner in a few weeks. It would all be very casual…no paperwork. I will look for a responsible college kid I believe. It seems like it may be hard to find a responsible person. There is also a pretty small profit on what I do….so not sure how I will make any money off the situation. I guess I will just charge more. Unless I can make a few bucks off of it, there’s no point in retaining the business. I’ll just charge more for new clients. I’m probably charging too little at this point, out of desperation but when I get busy I won’t be desperate anymore so I can charge more. If someone doesn’t like the price, they can move on.
I guess this is business 101. I know how to run a business but I don’t always run it like I should due to a lack of confidence, I guess.
