Most Americans have a hobby which borders on art. Whether it’s singing,dancing, writing and performing poetry or even burping. Some people actually try to make a living from these hobbies; and run into a huge problem. What price do you put on your art? If you write songs iTunes would have you believe your work is only worth 99¢ ($1.29 if you’re Justin Beiber.) If you are a painter maybe you think your work is priceless like Michelangelo but comes out looking more like this.
whatever the case it may be hard for you to ascribe a price to something you have worked so hard to accomplish. I have always been a fan of art setting it’s own price. By finding out how much others are willing to pay for certain items you set reasonable third party expectations. Also you avoid the awkward moment of realizing that your art is not what you thought it was worth by someone refusing to pay such a price.
