    Thank you, FFA, and this entrepreneur is still trying, after 40 years, to establish her tiny business to something resembling a secure footing. Starting... and not giving up. Not every enterprise finds success just by being, no matter how wonderful its stuff. It's a classic case of the starving artist. The real skill is in the selling, not in the making. My ad has run in the Gulch for years, with a single sale at the beginning. The cost of the ad I write off as a donation to help promote Objectivism--thinkers who have no interest in my thinking games. At least I can bask in the warmth of your praise for small business. Nice to see. www.gamepuzzles.com

    "A stranger had settled in the town and had an idea. It reduced the cost of material and allowed the wages to be raised, improved the manufacture and allowed the goods to be sold cheap while tripling them the profit. Before Father Madeleine came everything was languishing, and now all led the healthy life of work. A powerful circulation warmed and penetrated everything; stagnation and wretchedness were unknown." Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (edited slightly)

    I have started from scratch a number of businesses, including my latest venture of 13 years. We survived the pandemic=excused government attacks, and are doing better than ever for the last 4 months. The secret is quick response and pivoting to change in the face of obstacles.
