So I started working on my end of quarter paperwork today. I’ve been avoiding doing it for a couple of weeks because I feared the numbers. Over the past quarter I had several big road trips (two comic shows, a noise festival, & a couple shows down in Myrtle Beach) that weren’t too financially lucrative. So in the end Silber is in the red for the year so far. We’ll see what happens. I’m hoping for a decent royalty check for the song placements on MTV to come through & get things back to even for the year.
Meanwhile, I’m still trying to figure things out about the “Silber Hiatus”. I’m still trying to make things not be all consuming. To be mellower about it all & not just spend the whole day thinking about Silber. Essentially, to relax & just do things I want to do, but it seems like every day something comes up that I need to deal with. Paperwork or filling orders or whatever. But I guess 20 hours a week is a lot better than the 100 I was putting in a month or two ago & to be honest there doesn’t seem to be a significant decrease in sales or interest in things. We’ll see what I can figure out over the next couple of weeks.
On the button sales at the live events, I am going to try to go to the craft store & see if I can rig up some earring stuff to sell the buttons as jewelry. We’ll see if it makes a difference in sales.
In good news, the yeast took in my new batch of mead. So I guess I need to go ahead & get the last bit of honey turning into alcohol.
