If you are not willing to market your business you should expect to fail.
When people visit this forum we can only hope that they can tell the difference in good and bad advice. Knowing that many people come to forums looking for help and end up giving advice is important. If it sounds reticules, it probably is.
If you net profit doesn't increase as a result of your "extra overhead", then you wasted your valuable resources.
