I would go so far as to say that you need an interest that goed far beyond turning.

@Jennifer: where do you feel you experiment more, with woodturning or with marketing?

Hi Jurriaan,

What do you mean by experiment?

If you feel you have some free time to spend, are you likely to go in the shed and experiment with pepper mills or try fully turned salt scoops, or are you likely to create a video for the website, or better integrate it with facebook or anything like that?

If I had to choose, I'd rather turn a new item than do something marketing related. However, when I do have free time, I spend it reorganizing my shop to be more efficient or cleaning. I also spend a lot of time managing my wood inventory.

There is so much more to turning for a living than actual turning. I wish I had a partner who was interested in helping me. I envy people who have spouses that help them run their business.
