My husband and I just opened a two bay shop in Florence AZ. My husband has a ford background mostly with some experience at independent shops. We ran our business for a year from home, built customers then went for it. I have just one year automotive experice but have some educational advising experience which surprisingly seems to come in handy. He does all the repairs and I do everything else quotes taxes and books. We also bring our 8 month old to work with us in the office. We had a good first month hope it continues. Any guidance is always welcome so happy I found this site.
