Congrats on the LLC!!!!
I like the name too...
That's the first big step...giving your notice at work will probably be the next.
We'll be waiting for the next after that...

When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there’s no end to what you can’t do…
Congrats Chris. And good luck! Jim.

At a minimum, I'm Pentatoxic...but most likely, I'm a Pentaholic. There seems to be no known cure. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3
welcome to the down right scary world of self employment ....you`ll do well!
associated with several importers and manufacturers.
thanks, i can honestly say it does take guts. it is very hard to leave this comfortable desk job and strike out on my own. but doing both at the same time is just too much and the side work is getting too heavy to keep up with, i guess that's a good thing.
thanks, it took awhile to come up with that name. a good friend really wanted me to name it Mire'Acle Woodworks, but I told him I wouldn't be able to say it with a straight face. by the way my last name is pronounced meer, just like deer with an M, i know it's spelled wrong but we cajuns like to do that for some reason. another friend wanted me to name it Pre'Mire woodworks, kinda like Premier....but i didn't feel comfortable with that either.
everyone seems to like this name so i figured it was a good one.
Jim and Stu,
thanks, i'll take all the good luck you can dish out..
thanks...it definitely is scary, and i haven't even really gotten started, but the rewards far out way any of that stuff. i'm sure you know that.
the first of two shipments of my shop building is scheduled for this week, either thursday or friday I can't remember. This shipment will include all the sheeting and trim. the next shipment will bring the framing and trusses.
if this ridiculous weather would ever stop with the rain i could get my dirt work done and get a move on. luckily for me i have a great dad who is willing to let me take over his shop until mine is done so i don't miss out on any work. i guess he's used to it, i've been ruling his shop for the last year or more.
more to come later on all that. plus hopefully a few tool gloats very soon!!
thanks for checkin in
Congrats Chris! You may be a little scared, but your probably way more excited. There really is nothing like being self employed. I think the benefit's definately outweigh the risks. Keep your focus on what you love and it will all fal into place and you will do well.
I wish you the very best on your new "adventure".... After seeing your "old wood" cabinets, I'm sure you are going to be in high demand.
As far as your electricity goes, you might want to cost out what it would be to put in 400A now.... and what it would cost to put in less...and then increase it later.
thanks doug, the plan is to stay focused on what i love doing. hopefully if i continue to be blessed like i have been recently that will be easy.
thanks for the kind words
thanks, there is a very small chance that those "old wood" cabinets will be featured in a small local home and decor magazine. well actually the house will be featured and the cabinets will be mentioned. if all goes well. that should be some good free advertising.
