I read all these post of successful businesses. To be honest this will be my first full year on my own. With a full time job and doing this on the side I am not sure of my success. I am struggling with money and doing this to make ends meet. 3 step daughters and 2 sons of my own is making it very tough (ages 19 to 6 months). Yeah, I understand birth control and yeah I am almost 40 years old. I have put every extra dime into this to make a go of it. Tonight while watching the ball game I put (String) in my homemade door hangers. This may seem crazy but I have always loved this business. I worked for my uncle several years while in college and never lost the desire. I also did yards as teen on my own and working for the same uncle. Is there anybody else out that started out like me which is hoping to quit their current job and make it in this industry.
