First time ever joining this type of forum. I joined my fathers painting business 6 years ago and it all turned pear shaped. I left my good mortgage broking job to help him out as I felt guilty. As a consequence of poor choices, and me picking up his slack, I had gone bankrupt (thankfully now discharged) and back to square one. I have now two boys under 3 and want to start all over again. My father and I haven’t spoken in a year.
I’m not here asking what business to start by all means. I am here to get advice and get pointed in the right direction as to where to get ideas from. All the ideas or things I want to do cost alot or are already well taken.
I was once told that if you pick something, do it better than everyone else then you will succeed?
Glad you see you here – there will be lots for you to read and advice when you want it.
I am sad you haven’t spoken to your father – I know it is none of my business but I am betting he would feel just as badly about the situation you both found your selves in and he was probably doing the best he could with the resources he had. maybe I am wrong but I think it is always a good idea to let bygones be bygones and repair relationships the best you can. You generally only get one dad, an your kids need a grandad.
Anyway please disregard that if you like, it is just one persons opinion.
