Last March was my best ever. This year, my March stunk to high heaven, and I am worried about the effect this will have on my summer. Under the new system I will officially be "inactive" in May though I won't lose career sales unless June (Sell-a-thon) stinks too. I have some GREAT things planned but they are all in the fall ... a craft fair, a downtown festival and a booking that has historically been the biggest ever, etc. Last year I was only working 4 days a week ... now I have my 5th day back plus a LOT of demands on my time. I frequently work days that are 12 days long and have had weeks where I work 7 days straight. At the end of them, all I can do is collapse and sleep. When I do find the energy to make calls or send e-mails, nobody is home and the response is dismal. Other than snagging every fair and flea market I can find, what are some SURE FIRE ways to stave off becoming inactive?
