I’ve been considering buying an iPad, but I can’t justify its purchase and upkeep yet. The only way I’ve really justified buying one is if I can maintain a consistent stream of income from my jewelry business to be able to pay for it up front and have enough money to also pay for the data plan on a monthly basis. I think that’s a good motivator to help me figure out how to make my business more profitable. Honestly, would I really need a data plan if I just have wi-fi at home and at Starbucks? I have my iPhone for email and Internet already. Alright, maybe I don’t necessarily need an iPad. It’s just a really pretty and shiny new toy to play with and show off all my pretty jewelry designs in actual digital albums. Now that is cool.
Maybe I could buy it and not buy the data plan until I’m ready… hmm. But not until I drum up more regular business and definitely not until after the wedding and misc moving expenses. I’d rather have the beginnings of my dream studio first. 😉
