I would go to free events to display my work. It was a great opportunity but wasn’t very fruitful. It seems like an obvious thing to do because it’s FREE, right?
But there’s a huge time cost:
– day to prep and pack,
– day spent traveling to, from and at the event,
– half a day to recover, unload and restock.
So the events ends up costing me more than I made.
Just because something’s free it can still cost you something!
