I'm sorry to hear that Charles. That must have been a difficult decision to make. I've been working in the computer industry for 9 years and I'm really burnt out and hating it with a passion these days. I'd love to go into business for myself, but I can't come up with a sustainable business plan that provides enough steady income. I hope you at least like what you're doing now - that helps alot.hammerheadbikes said:I am not at the shop during the day
I have gone back to work full time in the computer industry, 3 kids and a stay at home mom means I needed more steady income and health benefits
When you put the family in the picture, there's no question you did the right thing. Glad to hear the overall stress level is lower with the new arrangement. That's also good news that the new arrangement is having a positive impact on the shop. So, yeah, sounds like things are working out for everyone after all. :thumbsup:hammerheadbikes said:It was a difficult decision...
but the right one
last year was tough on the business
I am way less stressed out, my wife is too, mortage is being paid on time, kids can go to the dr when needed
the shop is in a MUCH better place too...
I had been trying to run the shop on a shoestring budget.. entered it with no real capitol
now, we have the money to be able have frames in inventory at all time, fill orders substantially faster.. all good
the day job isn't bad.. no real stress... I leave it when I logout at the end of the day...
I would say life is good
