Revenue StreamThe past few months, I have been working diligently on recurring revenue streams.  With the type of work that I do, I produce one item and get paid.  If I walked away from my business for a day, week or month, the revenue would dry up.    What people purchase from me is their home, they don’t want someone else’s home or memory.  Finding a way to keep the money rolling in, is difficult.

Finding those places that people connect with, a slice of history of a particular town or famous place, now that is something a consumer will buy.  When I travel to a vacation spot or historical location, I look for a small souvenir to remember the place.  Yes, this is something that I can do, sell prints, note cards and mugs!  I live in a small historic town, in a VERY historic state.  There are places all over the country that I can illustrate and print on demand in small quantity to fill the orders.

It started with the Town of Cary, North Carolina.  Cary is a beautiful southern town with lovely old buildings.  History has been made in this town.  I happened to have registered to be a vendor at the 35th Annual Lazy Daze, Arts & Crafts Festival, right in the heart of downtown Cary.  One staple building is Ashworth’s Drugstore; Full Service Pharmacy, Old-Fashioned Soda Fountain/Lunch Counter, Medical Equipment Sales/Rentals & Hallmark Card Shop.  The Downtown Cary Depot that serves as an Amtrack Station, the Page-Walker Hotel, the New Cary Arts Center and the Ivey-Waddell home.

I have completed the Town of Apex and now have plans for Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, etc.  The possibilities are endless!
