    Default My Dream is to Open a Business.....

    I was partly inspired by a South Park episode where Cartman inherits $1 million dollars from his grandmother after she passed. In it Cartman decides to buy a theme park . Not because its a sound business decision. No , fuck that noise. He just wants it so he can ride all the rides himself and no waiting in lines. He hates lines...




    So I was thinking about years back , me and a buddy walked into a small book store. One that didn't sell comics ; just a simple paperback book shop. Inside that day this middle age man was sitting there. On his shop hours he had opened an hour earlier and was due to be open another 4 or 5 hours. We had just started looking around when suddenly the guy asks us if we could hurry up because he planned to close up when he wanted.

    I mean we didn't even get 5-10 minutes and bam this dude wants to close for the day. Like the ole sayin ...SORRY BOUT YOUR DAMN LUCK !


    So I was amazed , a business that doesn't care. I mean I'd love to own a business that doesn't give a shit. Like one of my personal heroes ...Al Bundy.

    I could imagine people coming into my store or shop , wanting to look around as i check my watch. Well fuck work today , time to show these folks out. Like Cartman I may even run my business like he did. Only I can be allowed in. Maybe you one day can be allowed entrance if it suits me. But for now ..kiss the cheeks of my ass on this.

    I shall rule over my place and business. Only those who kiss my ring can be allowed entrance. Yes in the land of business there is but one KING...and it IS ...I.

    If only it was that simple. It never is, but lots of people manage to start their own business and do well enough to earn a living.

    Not to make you feel like shit. But what if that guy had a sick wife or child in the hospital he had to get to. Or had to go to the bank for a loan to save his business. Maybe he did give a fuck.

    I've seen many small business open and close in under a year, though usually not for being rude to customers. Those that drive customers away, tend to close up shop, go out of business, a whole lot faster.

    Service orientated businesses sometimes forget that it's the customers that bring in the profit. Without a profit, they can't pay rent, or taxes, or utilities, or the cost of inventory, or salaries for employees, or cost of hiring people like lawyers, accountants, and so on. Even a small business has costs, unless the owner is already wealthy and is running the business out of their home and doesn't care about profit.

    A perfect business for Supe would be an indy wrestling promotion with Guns 'n Roses as the house band, playing all the intro music live.

    And just me in attendance. I don't any distractions to screw up the experience of seeing Guns N Roses.

    Dude, you always have to fake your dreams into reality ... It's not enough just to dream and talk about it. I also wanted to have my own business in order not to work for the boss and have passive income, but practice has shown that it is very difficult and before achieving success, I had to spend a lot of time, effort and money. In the end I found an excellent solution. I can't say that I came to this myself, but they helped me open a business and helped with the british virgin islands company register. At first, I had a lot of doubts, but later it turned into decisive actions because I understood that in any case I had to do this and bring the matter to the end, and I did not even think that a dizzying success awaited me.

    It reminds me the story of man who gave up his life as an employee during the Greek crisis and became sherperd.

    He said he thought it would be a cool life… He added that, before he had had a boss and now he had a dozen…

    Maybe you should find a way to give a try before deciding this life is for you… or interviewe this guy about his life.

    I know a few people who have their own businesses without any employees. They routinely turn away work just because they don't feel like doing it.

    No, they're just getting older and don't feel like they need to work as hard as they used to. When you own the business and don't have employees to pay it's easier to pick and choose what jobs you want to take on. They're auto mechanics, carpenters, and upholsterers.
