Hi, a friend of mine was working as a one man garage until a recent workplace accident. I had been trying to help to organise the shop better so he wasn't dealing with constant interruptions (with little success).


The accident was caused by trying to do too much at once resulting in working on a car in an unsafe manner.


I've talked to a number of one man garages recently and it seems they all struggle in a similar fashion.


So, my question is this.... How best to run a one man business. There seems to be little interest in joining forces with another one man setup.


So, how/when to make appointments, schedule work, order parts, get paid etc


I'm looking at Google docs to see if there's any way to put an appointment calender into action.


Not even sure what are the real problems faced by a one man shop...Can anyone point me in the right direction?
