Step #1- Take a perfectly good vase form and pull a lip on it. It is now a jug! Charge 1/3 less for it.
Step#2- Decide to put a lid on it! It is now a coffee pot. Charge even less maybe half price.
Now, wasn't that easy! I've been doing it for years.
You see there is much more money to be made in the living room than the kitchen. A coffee pot is destined to live in the kitchen and the vase to live in splendor filled with beautiful flowers in the living room or the center of the table. Yes, the vase will live center stage while the coffee pot is destined to be the work horse.
So if I'm so smart why do I continue to make jugs and coffee pots out of a perfectly good vase? I set out to make a vase and then sit back and look at it and say to myself "That would make a really nice jug!!! I think I suffer from a fear of financial success.
