Danny, as much as I would love to, I will probably not be able to attend the TMJ convention. (it's not in my budget at this time).
But someday I hope to make it to that side of the world :)

thanks, I like it alot. If it is your dream, and you can afford to do it, do it. I couldn't really afford it when I started it, but I had always wanted to give it a try. I figured, why not. If it didn't work I could just go back to having a regular job again. What did I have to lose. If I didn't try it, I would have always wondered if I could have made it.
Luckily, my husband has been very supportive of everything I've done, and every time things get tight and I want to quit, he talks me out of it. There are lots of times I want to just pack it in and forget about it. We'd probably be better off without the shop (we'd have more money that's for sure). But I really like what I'm doing, and my husband REALLY doesn't want the balloons back in the house, so I'll keep it until I'm totally done with balloons (which isn't likely to happen for a long, long time) lol.

Hello Tonya,

Nice to hear you get lots of work through word of mouth & giving out business cards ;) What do you do if you have finished an event and somebody asks you for a business card & a balloon?

Well, that depends. Usually when I close a line or event, that's that. I will give out my cards, but if I've already told everyone no more, that wouldn't be fair to them.
I have once or twice broken that rule, but not in front of the other kids. I once had a lady wanting a balloon for her "special needs" child after I closed a line. I explained to her that I couldn't make it in front of everyone since I've already told them no, but if she wanted to follow me out to my car, I would make her child a balloon there. I try not to do that often though, or I'd have TONS of people follow me out to my car...lol.
