I have a tip for you… Don’t make string…
A few years ago I made the mistake. I decided that I was going to be the King of all Stringmakers.
I totally geared up to make tons of string. I got everything I needed and got ready to Rock.
The very next morning I got right into the middle of the string making program!
Using the fastest methods known to man at the time; 11 days later I had completed my first string!
I put the String on eBay on a 10 day auction. That resulted in 20 total bids. And the string sold for 20 cents!
My total investment in material sadly was 40 cents. And to make sure I got good first feedback; I sent the string in a flat rate box insured for value; so the shipping ended up costing me $17.25.
Evaluating my cost/revenue stream; I realized that my Business adventure was a Total failure and made the critical decision to cut my losses and fold the Business.
It was a crushing blow to humanity and me… And sent me almost to the edge of Bankruptcy court.
I did survive the ordeal and now just buy my string from YYE.
I’ll never forget those days, though.
It was the best 12 inch long yoyo string I have ever seen.
