    You know, a smart guy would write down what he had to pay sales tax on when the sale goes through instead of waiting until the end of the year to find them.

    Awwww, the joys of being a small business man... I actually looked into going independent awhile back. $20,000.00 + a year for health insurance pretty much killed that idea dead.

    Yeah, no doubt. I went a long time without health insurance and finally my wife got me on hers at work. The down side to that is the older we get the higher it gets and the less likely it is we'll be able to afford it even through her work.
    If a person's goal is to make a killing by going into small business for themselves they'll be miserable because that's just not the reality of it. The fact that you can work for yourself and love your job has got to be the driving force I think. If not you'll freak out at how much money the government, health insurance and daily operations actually take away from your "profit". It's been eye opening to say the least.
    But God has blessed me to be able to make it so far and I hope that continues, I dread working for somebody again. I hope that never has to happen.

    I spent 25 years working for a/the 'Man' in the medical filed and it can drain the life out of you if your not careful. Paid the bills but was very demanding in many ways,with the call, accuity of patients and dealing with unnecessary and self-aggrandizing middle management. 7 years ago said enough was enough and started my own business. It has been very rewarding and fulfilling. The practical reality is that anything fulfilling always comes with hard work, struggle and challenge. There is a saying that 'you don't own a small business but that the small business owns you'. It's okay by me so far but will see how long that lasts. It is not a small busy friendly environment we have or have had for a looong time in this country. If my wife didn't work at a medical practice as a nurse and paid for our medical expenses it would be very different to say the least. It's still not cheap but much better than full price. If I had to do it over again I would have started earlier most likely. I still very much enjoy running things the way they are.
