They want me to give up

Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
~ Napoleon Hill

I’ve been looking for a manufacturer for my calendar base. For the last 3 years, I’ve had to make due because of necessity. Now, I need this base, and I see companies that have them. But they won’t divulge their secret providers. I’m not giving up, though, because if they could find them, I can too.

I’m also procrastinating. I can make do without the base, but I think if I’m going to sell these this year, it should look nice. But I’m using this search in place of actually trying to find someone who is willing to sell these. I have not validated this idea yet. I mean, I like it, so that’s enough, right? I’ve learned enough to know that is sadly not the case. I have decided on a price, only because other calendars are selling at this price, so its a good start. Now I need to see what the margins are. But, math. Ugh.

Today, I’m feeling a little discouraged because I’m not quite sure why all the companies are refusing to tell me their providers and I feel like throwing a fit.
