How did you first start your business?
I did it the right way - I'm in manufacturing and I had ten years in jobs that trained me how to do everything. I also had a base of tooling and equipment. I just got some money, quit my job and opened my own place. I worked regular days or something more in the beginning. First real, weeklong or better vacation was after about 5 years. We could have gone before that, we just didn't think of it till we became burned out. But I have real skills, knowlege and experience. Now I'm one of the venerable old timers. I'll say that if you are all that concerned about vacations you are probably in the wrong topic.

Depend on what line of work your in. I'm thinking of starting a classic car restoration business, I'll have to rent or buy a shop buy a compressor buy other tools i don't already have. Put ads in the paper. Get signs outside of my business and possibly hire people. Its big a leap but worth it street watching you're boss bring in 8 grand a week with 4 Lazy employees you start to think you could bust your *** and make 4 grand for yourself in a week.
