It serves as my own reminder and as a lesson for future reference.
Dear diary…In 2007 I set up a small illustration venture producing postcards and greetings cards depicting my town. Being keen and green I was naturally eager to get these illustrated products on sale in as many shops, libraries, museums and similar locations as possible.
My prospecting of potential outlets led to me striking up a good working relationship with the local borough council museum. While working a few part time jobs in addition to the business experiment, the free time was used in volunteering at the museum (good for the C.V. and an ideal way to network). This was the route I took in establishing a mutual agreement for the display and sale of my work. Critically, several important factors were left out of my decision making.
