Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!
Keep track of your costs when creating a new act.
I know it’s tedious, but record at least your cash outlay, like for costume supplies and studio rental. You should also track your time. It has value too.How long did you spend sewing, rehearsing, editing your music, &c. With this information, you’ll have a good idea of what your act is worth. You can then figure out how much you’ll need to charge and how many time you’ll need to perform the act to start making a profit on it.
