      32. I would never quit my job to start something. I've worked too hard to get where I am. I'm looking for something to fill the rest of my time.

        I'm looking for ideas that require more of my time than my money???



        I just don't think I can work for someone else my entire life.




        Not wanting to work for others as an employee was the thought that propelled me into going into business. I had a drywall hanger/finisher, carpenter and painter experience, so I first started a drywall company and after the first few years I had business with some of the biggest home builders i Northern Virginia.



        I predicted the slow down that was coming so I started a remodeling company, that I still own. I am too sick and have been to sick for over three years,

        so I am now trying to sell my business.



        In short my advice is simple if you hate being an employee find something like a skill or a trade that you already mastered and go into business for yourself.

        Be careful there are a lot of scams aimed at people just like you, you want income and ownership and they promise to give you the tools to do this. Whatever you, I wish you the best.

              The skills that I have required doesn't really relate to my own business. At least it's not something I would want to do for a long time. What I do is actually a lot safer to do with a company than on my own. But like I said it isn't something I'd want to do forever.

                  Also what I do doesn't really equate to my own business. It could be done but it's not something I'd want to do forever and legally it would be a lot safer to do with a company.

                    if i were smart i'd have more shiz to do IRL and wouldn't spend the entire business day logged on here......



                    i hate a love/hate relationship with what i do, and even if i did it for myself it'd be the same. i don't have the desire to spend 16 hours a day at the office, even during "slow/off seasons".

                    such is life.

                      I don't totally disagree with you. I can't come up with ideas because like I said I've never really been passionate about anything. But I don't think that has to mean I can't make something work. I just need ideas that take more time than money as I have a lot of time I really don't use.

                        This is exactly what I am trying to do more or less. Just looking for ideas I could put to use. Also any more school is really out of the question for me.

                          To start any kind of business that has any chance of succeeding, you need either one of two things, or both;



                          1- Experience

                          2- Money



                          School plays into experience, so if you don't have one or the other, don't bother. IMO of course.

                                Doesn't make me want to do it any less though.
