I’m going to do one of two things: crush a dream, or inspire you.
One of my friends said that there’s three kinds of jobs: the job you want, the job you’re qualified for, and the job you get. These are not the same job. Chances are, you’re not going to get any sort of money or compensation by doing anything yoyo related. 's just the way it is.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Profit margins on strings are low. CNC tools are balls expensive. Material for prototyping? Expect your first projects to cost an arm and a leg… Let’s not even get into finding clients for commissioned work.
But if you REALLY want to make any kind of money past pocket change in this niche field, you’ve gotta be creative. You need to find a hole and fill it better than anyone else. Most importantly, you have to want it. It will not be easy, and you’ll want to throw it away more times than you’ll care to recall, but if you REALLY want to make it work, you’ll stick with it. That’s where you’ll find your success.
