Sooooo, I attended Comfest this weekend - and to be quite honest, I was quite disappointed yet again. This is only the 2nd show that I have done to date - and the first one I sold nothing. This one was a tad better - but for 2 days that I attended this show I still made less than $50 - which was a huge disappointment for me. The event was well attended - but sales were slow - all the way around. But most of the other vendors still did much better than I did (thankfully for them).
I know the economy is slow right now. But I am really discouraged right now and I am trying to figure out how not to be so down on myself. I can't help but wonder if this business venture of mine is worth the time and effort that goes into it. It also makes me wonder whether anyone really likes my jewelery - or if they are just being nice to me. A vast majority of my sales are to my friends and family - and so it is now making me second guess myself.
So - now the question is this: How do I get around this slump? And how do I start to feel better about my jewelery? Is it worth the time and effort? What can I do to make things better? Is my jewelery worth it?
Any feedback would be nice....thanks for letting me vent...
