you mean the ones that have been AROUND FOR YEARS...the same
ones that have CULTIVATED their REPUTATION for customer service,
SKILLS, EXPERIENCE & Knowledge !?!?!
If this guy has the education, skills, experience...and the necessary
historical REPUTATION (word of mouth) then he's probably got
a SHOT...in a GOOD economy...of making a go of it....lack even ONE
of the above and he'll be TOAST in 12 months !
Remember one guy cant do it all....get at least ONE good mechanic, and
pay 'em well, hell make the SR. Mechanic a partner...the business DEPENDS
on it !
people that "think" they know it all are so annoying.... theres plenty of diesel shops that havent been around for any more than 2 years that are so busy that cant keep up....and accessories are still selling like crazy as well....have you read anybodys sig and seen their avatars and stuff with tons of mods and lifts, dressup stuff, etc.?
if the guy has knowledge of running a business, will power to work his everlovin arse off, and capital, its possible...but from what ive seen, dont jump in all at once, leave somethin to make some money at while getting started....part time job, lawncare, etc. BUT...once you DO get your name out there and getting business, you need to give all your efforts to what you want the most, you cant halfass something when your an owner! and get good help that will stick with you! we have a business selling admixtures for concrete, so feel free to pm me as well if you have any questions
and good luck at your new venture!
