    Look on the bright side you could be like me and work outside in the heat, cold, sun and rain laying waterline, storm drain and sewer pipe and be broke! We go through help like a kid goes through skittles. Nice looking studio you have there. All those racks waiting to be mounted just assures you do quality work and your customers know it.

    I just retired from taxidermy this year at 59 years old. I ran my business with profit as the number one priority. A lot of people on here will never be able to retire due mainly to poor business skills.

    If you're that far behind with the season looming near, and broke, you're doing it wrong.

    You can NOT spend taxidermy deposits on personal expenses. They must be used only to pay for overhead, supplies, etc. You must put them in a separate account. You must raise your prices even if you lose some clients over it.
