only reason i can think of NOT to own your own shop, is it's nicer getting a paycheck than trying to figure out hth your gonna cover everyone else's paycheck come friday........

how mechanically inclined are you? if you are, then i don't see why you couldn't do it, just remember, anytime you do something you enjoy on the side, and turn it into a job, thats exactly what it becomes.

as far as shops go, there is a shop in town here, the guy who ran it was killed street racing, well the building owner owns the lifts and other heavy equipment, i'm don't know if this is a semi-normal practice, but i do know that the equipment comes with the shop lease, might be like that elsewhere, just have to look.... that would cut way down on start up expenses.

Troy-Curt and Nairb are shop owners......
as is KristKustoms, and several others here......

oh, and don't forget the government regulations..... osha makes it damn near impossible to stay open unless your stuff is wired tight, so to speak......
