    Why I Just Quit A "Dream Job"

    Thank you for responding, and I will definitely check that post out. It surely was not a dream job for me but many in my field would consider it just that. It was a slowlane job, not necessarily terrible but I think I have just had enough of making big companies money and living paycheck to...

    Why I Just Quit A "Dream Job"

    It is not exactly unique but it has a definite niche and it can be scaled. The business is auto glass replacement (think Safelite Auto Glass). It is a mobile business and it has about 60 commercial customers (collision repair and auto repair) and many other retail customers (your average Joe...

    Why I Just Quit A "Dream Job"

    Hey everyone, So I just quit a highly coveted job in my field... The pay is $38/hr at full rate and a full pension after 30 years. Sounds like a pretty good gig right? The problem with that is, about $80k/year isn't Ferrari money and I am not willing to give away 30 years of my life for...

    Will you join this nutrition and fitness FB group when u see the name?

    I am big into fitness, particularly powerlifting, and a huge breakthrough point for me was hormone manipulation via food. It is relevant for both men and women and I think it is going to be a huge trend as people are becoming more nutrition literate... Just my opinion.

    INTRO Drunken Wastrel and a Ne'er Do Well: A Reintroduction

    Hi everyone, My name is Ron and I am in the automotive business. I am a constant procrastinator, a drunken wastrel and a ne'er do well. Although I say that jokingly, a lot of truth is said in jest. I am fairly successful compared to the many slow-laners around me but in the grand scheme...

    EXECUTION 3 days to start an online business? Surely impossible?

    I am part owner of a non-profit powerlifting gym. Seems to me that all of our members who are personal trainers are going back to their day jobs for lack of clientele. Looks like your idea can definitely satisfy that need. Good luck.

    Buying A Repair Shop-How To Find Financial Backing

    I appreciate all of the responses and feedback. I am leaning towards a bank loan because it may be the easiest way for me to get my hands on capital.

    Buying A Repair Shop-How To Find Financial Backing

    Over the past couple of years I have become comfortable working my job day in and day out. Something snapped and now I realized again that I cannot work for somebody. I am an auto technician and have decided to buy an established auto repair shop. I understand that this isn't exactly fast lane...

    The input has been awesome everybody. I love the different perspectives, thanks for that. I'm going to meet with my partners and see if this is something they want to do. @Bigguns50: you kind of hit on it... the need for another gym really isn't there. Very interesting info on this thread...

    EXECUTION Powerlifting Gym-Stepping Stone to Fastlane?

    Thanks ZCP and codo3500 for the responses. You are right it is definitely not scalable but I'm just hoping to make enough money to quit my job and free up more time. I think that it might be possible. I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth it or not. Thanks again.

    EXECUTION Powerlifting Gym-Stepping Stone to Fastlane?

    Yes, I have a program (possibly in an ebook format) that I was going to sell to compliment the gym. I was thinking: create some revenue at the gym, create a video series/blog and then market my program. Thanks for the reply.

    EXECUTION Powerlifting Gym-Stepping Stone to Fastlane?

    Hi all, I am one of three part "owners" of a powerlifting gym. The idea was to be able to rent a place and eventually get enough members where we could work out for free. Although we do have some members, it hasn't really materialized into anything. We do not market the brand at all. (I...

    ICK, this thread is ridiculous. Thank you for the value that you have provided and for attracting the more experienced members to this thread.
