Sunset.com: Any advice for how aspiring artisans can get started?

Sara Paloma: I would advise artisans just starting out to protect themselves from the marketplace as much as possible for as long as you can--keep a regular day job, have a series of weird, quirky day jobs, work in the corporate world for awhile, try it all--but don't settle in to doing your craft for money too early. It's like getting married too young or showing up at a party at 7:30.  Sure,  people do it and manage alright, but it's way more fun if you hold off and do a lot of other things first.
