Thank you for your responses everyone, and constructive ones at that.

I think the problem is that i’m not 100% passionate about it. I was, but i am studying as well. I can see myself setting up another business down the track, and one that i am very passionate about, so these are all lessons for me.

Paul: i love what your friend says about sub-contractors! The subbys will most likely poach the customers by handing out their business cards while on the job. There is nothing i can do about this now, except if it continues to grow, get them to sign a disclaimer saying they won’t do this if they accept work through me.

bb1: I didn’t really make a solid business plan with definate actions timelined next to dates, but i can see that this is essential.

Thank you once again for your insights, i will continue to think about them. Very valuable insights.
