I consider myself starting as a successful Slow-Laner in life. I graduated from college at age 17 with a two-year degree in automotive service. At my 18th birthday I had 71 different job offers from all over town and the country. Ended up taking a job from a family friend who managed a dealership owned by the biggest dealer chain in my town. I worked there for two years and despite my lack of experience and skill I became a very highly payed tech. I also had a few side businesses, one on my own and one with the guy who higherd me. After Two years and lots of 16 hour days I made enough money to buy a home, a big goal of mine especially for my age. But soon after the work at my job dried up. My boss was focused on different avenues of the business that i was not involved in. Also promises of big promotions to high up management positions were delayed or were denied. Six months ago I decided to take what little savings I had and start my own business. While I made great money for my age I was tired of waiting to get a raise or waiting on work that never seemed to show up anymore. I wanted the only factor effecting my income to be me and my choices.

Hello. Where are you located and why do you think the work dried up? Seems like the car industry is recession proof.

If you are in the US, there should be a big demand for this as I hear prices are insane.

If you failed in the car repair business, it sounds more like a location or marketing problem.

What were the fail points?

After Two years and lots of 16 hour days I made enough money to buy a home, a big goal of mine especially for my age.

Wow, congratulations!
