I thought you planted grapes, harvested them, made the wine, bottled it, and a truck backed up to your loading dock to deliver the wine to eagerly waiting customers. I thought, in short, that after making the wine your work was done. You might want to pour yourself a glass and sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Wrong! wrong, wrong , wrong! It is at this point that your troubles begin. You have to stir up interest in the bloody wine and persuade customers to actually buy the stuff. That's the hard part.
I find the same problems in the art business. I have exhibited in juried shows and actually have won prizes and received accolades from those who should know.
I still find myself with quite a bit of inventory. My walls are full. My children and friends already have some of my artwork. A couple of people have actually bought paintings almost by happenstance
So now what?
