As I stated in the other forum, spammers are winning here.

Yet I will keep posting until there is a solution.

And today my question for everyone is: those of you who work solo, how do you prevent yourself from going bonkers?

I thought you were going to say "Bankrupt"  - another topic for self employed.  Today medical coverage informed me that my premium will increase by over $ 500.00 but the deductible will stay level at  $14,000 - ain't this a load of crap -

The 4 walls of my shop really close in on me. Facebook upholstery groups, and other forums like this one help me keep my sanity.

I have a commercial store front, but in this kind of business, that only equates to a couple of customers a day.

My daughter works nearby, so she bums a free lunch off me every day. Otherwise I might go bonkers myself.

Yes four walls and solitude can cause claustrophobia. For me opening the garage door invites the occasional neighbor to stop by. Many neighborhood children are very curious as to what is going on inside my shop. But best of all is the neighbors dog who stops by every day to munch on a few biscuits.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Indeed, bankrupt is another topic.
Tonight I attended a local designer's meeting. The competition among furniture companies is fierce. It did not make me feel much better about re-upholstery. I suppose some custom work, here and there.
These designers are raking in huge amountso of money.
