What does it REALLY involve? (long) - Page 8

post #106 of 135
Thread Starter 
The $ is not coming from the bank. Thank you loriemoms for giving me your typical day. That is what I need to here (in addition to all of the great advice). Do you work by yourself? Do you have a shop or is it "by app't only"

I don't mind the hours or the work and I REALLY LOVE DOING THIS!!!!!!! But the love of it is not enough. This has to make biz sense, meaning $$.

Just curious....do any of you have kids and do this as well?

Quote from OP:Spoke with my sister yesterday.....*sigh* I made it perfectly clear to her that IF she were to invest then things would be done with a lawyer. NOTHING would be assumed in any regards and that she needs to decide if she would want to invest $ or $ and working there. As well, she would need to decide what exactly she wanted out of it and that would be done legally. Of course, her concern is my hours and whether I would follow through. I got a bit pissed. I am not a 5 yr old. I laid into her for treating me that way and not assuming that I would do the necessary research and considerations. I guess that is a cross I must bear (told you I didn't like finances!). But I think she understands that I am not the same person and have no intention of being thought of that way.

I do not have a business but I have been following this for a while. Did you notice what you wrote in the above quote? Already you and your sister are having issues. This looks like old issues over your following through on things. You had an very bad reaction to her saying that to you and as you said you laid into her. That does not sound like you would have a good business partnership together. Maybe I am reading more into this but that is how this comes across to me. It would be terrible to invest all the time and money into a business and have it go down the tubes over sibling issues.

luv_to_decorate - I know that you are probably right. In order for it to be different, we would need to start anew, so to speak. But I am considering not having her involved. I just hadn't made it definite in my mind yet. You caught me! icon_wink.gif

Can I throw something out there....just for a reaction? What if I were to take on a partner? Find another decorator who wants to do this with me? Do you think that is good or plain stupid? I am tossing it around in the back of my head. Curious for feedback.

tinygoose - how old are your kids? And I'll have to keep that in mind about the BC....more fattening, therefore more sex to work it off, right? icon_wink.gif

LOL! Buttercream is the new aphrodisiac...Ha ha ha!

On the sister part...isn't there an old saying about going into business with family? I know I have always got the short end of the stick when it comes to doing something with the family!

Actually, my DH is against going into biz with family (unless it is his family) for exactly that reason.

Any thoughts on me getting a partner? Smart or would it kick me in the ass?
