I wonder how long it would take to read thru all 871 pages of this thread. What's up folks? It's dang cold here again, that 60 degree day totally fooled me into thinking it was May, silly me. I'm thinking of starting a small business, still thinking thru the logistics. It may be totally stupid & I'll have to keep my day job, but if it gets good enough that I can quit & just focus on that, I would be a happy camper. Anyone else doing something crazy like that in this nutty economy? I think the worse it gets the more a person decides to just jump in & do what they've always wanted to do. Weird how that works.

Jump on in an do it!!! As your not in a state like Ma that is making it impossible to keep a small business going or to start a business. What kinda business have you got mulling around in your head??

Well, I'm doing something completely different, I'm part of the remodeling/restructuring (what ever they call it) for Fred Meyer. The past 20 years I've been in IT, and to be honest, I'd rather not be doing that any longer.

Well, I should probably be thinking more in terms of what people actually NEED during these tough times, but I'm going more w/what I want to do. I'd like to start a petsitting/dogwalking business. So far whoever I have spoken to thinks it's a great idea & they would definitely use it. I just need to finalize rates, what exactly I would include in my services, etc. I've been thinking about doing this for awhile now & I think I just may do it. It's doable because there's no overhead, I'm not going to have a storefront or anything like that. Ideally, what I really want to do is open a bar but that of course takes money & who nowadays can get a loan??
