All these posts are really interesting and gave me a lot of great insights but also things to think about. Its fascinating to hear how you actually got where you are right now and I am grateful that all of you made the effort to share it! What was the hardest thing you had to face in your business? Building a loyal customer base and good reputation? To overcome your competition?
Hi everyone! I am a quite a young guy (20 years young to be exact) and I am currently working as a mechanic. I really want to start my own repair business in the next couple years so I would love to hear how you guys got into it and what education is needed to become an independent shop owner. Did you go to business school in college? Or did you work as mechanic before and decided at one point to become self employed? Did you just open your own business and just learned everything along the way? I would really like to hear your stories!
