All the advice is really nice, and I suspect that I am not the only one on these forums that have the same struggles right now. I hope others have gotten something out of this as much as I have. Cheaper than a Therapist.
Especially a big thanks goes out to Mark who gave me a call and we talked for a good hour, sometimes hard advice and some validation is all we need to hear.
I will continue to follow the path I have started on, make as many pots as possible and attend as many shows as I can get to. I want to open up a wholesale market which I am going to begin starting in 2014 and hope to have something established in 3 years (advice I received with planning from a local potter who has been successful with wholesale). I believe that patience, hard work, and being as efficient and innovative as possible will get me there.
In the end if I cannot quit my day job at some point in the future I will always have Pottery as a "retirement job" which may be exactly what I am looking for.
