    so i told my boss i want to start my own company this year. i didnt tell him that i already have a maxi sneaker, compressor, 521, and all my hand tools.

    it went suprisingly well, i was preparing to be fired on the spot but he wants me to stay on and train the new guy. this could be good and bad, it gives me a pay check when i might not have work but if he drags his feet hiring a replacement it coul keep me from geting things rolling on my company.

  7. Good luck. Learn QBCKS and have a business plan. Keep separate business and personal checking accounts. Avoid tirekickers and don't run in place.
