Simple process: Ask a qualified expert about options, document any expenses, and market the product to your chosen niche. With a little planning, fair pricing, and a desirable product, I can make a little bit of extra money on the side. My plan is to sell primarily from a web site with a few craft or art shows added for additional exposure. Use your talents and contacts, look for opportunity, and follow through!
