On Going Broke

Blog day 6: Total spent on travel for the balloon twister convention: $1,227.82. Yikes. Can I pay that plus the puppet van payment plus... a third of each gig fee goes to taxes. Maybe I should charge more.

Normally my prices are higher than those of other local balloon twisters. But when a client books a magic show, I offer balloons for less than barely-skilled basic balloon twisters charge. If I keep dropping a thousand dollars on conventions I may have to up my prices.
