@Alex Visi I hate to be pedantic and technical but the word "font" literally refers to the software. The word to describe the collection of glyphs is "typeface". I know, I know, that's not how anyone (including me) uses it in the day to day world. I point this out because, when we think about the business side of the things the technical meanings can be a useful framework on which to base decisions.
That feels to me like the thing that would make the most difference if we could do some education. But I've no idea how to clear that hurdle.
Btw, this is my real name, I go by Laurensius Studio (https://laurensi.us/studio) for my studio name thus the LS. I don't think I should write my name twice.

It's possible to make a living releasing free fonts. My free-ish fonts come with a commercial use desktop license. They generate income from sales of non-free fonts in the same family as well as embedding licenses and donations.
