Sounds like you've certainly tried a lot of things, but if your heart wasn't in it from the start is it that surprising it didn't go so well? That said, I suppose if you'd had more luck, and I do mean luck because aside from hard work that is a necessary factor in any business, your recollections of how you got started might now include more enthusiasm for the idea.

The only advice I feel qualified to give would be to pursue something you really enjoy. If that doesn't guarantee financial success at least you will get some job satisfaction along the way.

I could say a lot more about the how, why and wherefore of how this got started. I won't though.

I enjoy photography. I enjoyed writing my photography book too. One of my friends suggested sticking to writing books on photography rather than being a "photographer". He has a point.

I am loathe to sell stuff that I have purchased but in order to reduce bulk, I probably will. I suspect my next book will be on the death of a photography business.
