That is what is so interesting about this thread. It's a hobby turned business for many of us younger folk, and the lines are beginning to fade, and it is good to step back and look at the situation every once and a while.
Just this fall, I remembered why I got into it in the first place. I now breed the snakes I like, regardless of saleability. I used to keep the snakes that would sell - and started to base my collection around that. Jeff mentioned he keeps JCP's because he likes them, rather than keeping Diamonds which would make him rich. I guess he'd have to wait 5 years growing up diamonds - and I can't see him doing that either.
