While starting a small business may seem daunting, difficult and downright terrifying – many have become very successful working from home. I have a friend (everyone says that) – yes I do. His son is 25 years old came from Ecuador and is a wonderful mechanic. The problem with Jose is that the local business’ want a degree from this country or in the case of one establishment (that will not be named), they short change you. This business wanted to have Jose do all the work and only pay $10 an hour. (I hate paying high prices but we should pay people what they are worth.)
My point. Well, Jose started his own small business from home. He started a small business from home repairing vehicles. Now he has moved up into purchasing cars at action, repairing them and reselling them. He now tells me he is looking into expanding into possibly involving himself in reselling parts. He has done all this, started his small business from home and he is doing very well for himself.
