Well I may finally do it. I might be my own boss pretty soon. I'll be keeping you guys posted.
I've been talking with an old co-worker , Brad Harrub, and he now has a journal that he's paying $5,000 a month (yes, a 5 with 3 zeros) to have typeset. That includes the company finding the pictures to illustrate the journal. It's 32 pages long and would take about 2 straight weeks per month to complete. I told him I could do it for a flat $3,000 per month. He said, "Hello!" Which is Bradeeze for "keep talking, I'm listening." I could do that and Discovery for $500 per month (2 to 4 days work) and make $42,000 per year before taxes. I would still have over 15 business days per month to do other things, work part time elsewhere, find filler work or other accounts, etc.
It sounds awesome on the surface. I would have to invest about $6,000 to start-up. That includes:
1) A better computer and second monitor
3) A used laptop (Jamison you got a price for me yet?)
4) A Tabloid color laser printer
5) A monitor and printer color optimization tool.
In reality investing $6,000 into a start-up business is nothing. I'm really giving this a lot of thought. Your prayers would be appreciated. I'll be calling Brad sometime today to see if we can work out some details.
(And on a side note...Where's the Mullinz video, Jamison?)
