Makers are not business-minded

Thought I'd write about a struggle I have constantly. I want to be business like and respected for my sharp business brain. But it doesn't happen.

I think we creatives use one side of the brain to the (almost) total exclusion of the other and when we have to think about money, and getting the best deal it just doesn't happen.
I can only be friendly and nice with the shops I deal with. I would never be hard nosed and demanding. I always think I could do better and could have argued for a better deal.
But if I was that hard nosed business woman I wouldn't have produced the designs to sell in the first place.
