Starting a computer repair Businesses
I hear it all the time…..”Should I start a computer repair business?”….Very good question and extremely hard to answer. Some of the questions you have to ask yourself are:
Do I like a steady paycheck??
Do I like vacation time yearly?
Do I like having sick days?
Do I like my weekends free?
Do I like not having a 401K plan?
Do I like the cost of insurance for my family?
Am I an outstanding tech?
Am I a good business person?
Now, those are just a few of the questions you have to ask yourself before you can really decide. One of the biggest complaints is “I am tired of working for the man”….Well sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side….Maybe looking at employment elsewhere is a better choice than starting your own business. Maybe there are actually things you can do to improve yourself such as certifications, schooling, etc that would be beneficial to yourself and the company you are working for.
Don’t get me wrong owning your own business is great and I for one thoroughly enjoy it. But, don’t be blinded going in thinking things are going to be great from day one because typically they are not. If you have a family you better discuss this with them over and over and over again and who knows maybe they will come up with reasons to start your business or not to start the business.
Bottom line is there is no real easy answer to this question. You just have to put a lot of thought into it and then make the decision.
