View Full Version : Finally moving to start my own business.

I'm finally ready. I'll have to do it on the side until I can make a full time go of it.

Not really excited about discussing "what" it is just yet, because it is going to be a real challenge.

But the facts are, that I've been very interested in it for a long time. It is tactical in nature, and hopefully I'll be able to unveil here first, assuming I can get authorization from the Boss.

Last spring a WT member gave me the advice that I'd heard a million time before, "JUST DO IT, COMMIT TO IT AND THEN DO IT." And so I'm jumping in. No need to name names, because I don't believe in a@@ kissing. Thanks, you know who you are.

Prayers are in order if you're a believer. I'm investing in equipment and beginning R&D in applying the knowledge I've been gathering since.

Good luck and the Lord's blessings. It's tough, but I highly recommend it!

Congratulations! I have been in business for myself for four years now, very satisfying and very difficult. I keep waiting to see things like a jedi master or in 1's and 0's like Neo in the matrix but it hasn't happened yet, your thinking will change though as you learn more and you WILL eventually be able to make the leap to a full time succesful business if that is your goal.

May the Lord be before, behind, beneath and beside you. Commit it to Him!

I remember a similar post here a couple of years ago. Some guy was building AK kits on the side in his garage/basement. I won't name names, but his initials are Jim Fuller. I think things have gone well for him. :shysmile:

Good luck with your venture.

Hey, OdieWon, congratulations on going for it! Best wishes & good luck to you. :beer:

I'm about to do something different myself ...

What if Gabe himself had been afraid to step off the cliff? I mean, he could have made a comfortable living preaching the 1911 Gospel if he had been willing to settle. The successful have vision and have to be fearless. Good luck and keep us posted.

Good luck! Prayers sent!

Congratulations on your decision. Your "investment" will do as well as you invest yourself in it. Keep the big picture in mind and do well. Prayers lifted for success.

On the day after my 49th b-day I woke and said to myself "So whatcha gonna do now kid?" I started my own consulting business and here I am at 55.

I know you have missed some sleep. I also know you going to miss some more sleep. But you know what? Sleep way over rated. Get after it and enjoy being the boss!

Best of luck and Merry Christmas!
