Hi Y'all...from the Volunteer State!

Natalie Spears

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself.  I am Natalie Spears from Savannah, Tennessee.  My husband, Tommy, and I have a goal to open an auto body shop in the future.  We are spending a lot of time researching EVERYTHING before we take that leap.  I hope to gain a lot of additional knowledge on the business end of things by joining a few forums and getting involved.  Currently, he is working out of our home garage which is not optimal, but is certainly better than nothing.  Like many of you, he was taking things apart and putting them back together before age 10.  He is unbelievably talented and has amazing skills with anything mechanical in nature.  I, on the other hand, will handle the business end of the company.  My background and current profession is bookkeeping so we hope this combination will lead to a successful business partnership.  I look forward to learning great things on here!

Welcome Natalie! I'm in the Volunteer state as well. Good luck!

Awesome!  I see from your website that you grew up in a shop just like I did.  We live in West TN and my husband actually works in Nashville (Cowan Street...just off of Jefferson St near downtown).  I sent a connection request to you on LinkedIn.  We just purchased a commercial building (needs a ton of work) in our hometown of Savannah, TN.  We plan to open an auto paint/body shop there soon.  I might pick your brain on a few things occasionally, if that's ok?

Welcome! I agree that you've got to do a lot of research - but more important than that is to develop a plan. Nobody PLANS to fail - they just FAIL to PLAN! ;) The only problem is that so many people plan, and plan, and plan - trying to make it perfect. The truth is - no plan is perfect. Set out your overall goals and get started. The biggest obstacle to SUCCESS is PERFECTION! 

Best of luck with your venture - hope this helps!
