Starting out — a cautionary tale to anyone thinking about starting a business

Moving from being gainfully employed to having to make the money to pay one’s bills can be daunting Making the actual move can be gut wrenching or it can be the easiest decision you’ve ever made Nothing, and I mean nothing, can replace good old fashioned hard work coupled with honesty and integrity

I recently received an email from a journeyman plumber describing how he had been reading CONTRACTOR magazine in his company’s main office. He didn’t say which issue he had read, but apparently a reference in an article to “getting started in the business” caught his attention.  His letter was well written.  He asked for advice about how he should, or could, go about getting into business for himself.
