| | Re: Doing "goodies" for friends
Aw! I hate this happened to you!
I have a friend who I made some bows for over the last few years. This was when I was trying to get my name out there and was still working on forming the bows correctly. So, I gave her some for free. But, I ended up feeling used because when I started selling them and others were paying for them, she still expected them for free! Yikes! So I finally (after continuing this trend for a while) had to break down and charge her. It was hard because she is my friend...but I reached a point where I was out too much money and needed to make a profit! I was worried she would be mad at me....but I realized if she was a good friend she would understand! It was a tricky situation but thankfully it has worked out okay so far!
