First of all ... that chart is fantastic! I have a business from home under the Michigan Cottage Law ... and although many think that would make things much cheaper, it doesn't!. Julia, I absolutely agree with what you wrote. My cookies are expensive. I have certain designs that I have priced per dozen. But my cookie favors start at $5.50 and go up from that point. Yes, I have had people say 'no thanks' but there is no way I could bake a cookie from scratch, come up with a custom design, or even if they provide you with a design or idea, I still draw it up to scale. It's all VERY time consuming and there has to be some kind of profit in order to call it a business.
I am still amazed by that chart! Did I happen to mention that's a fantastic breakdown??!
