Starting a Business ??'s

Was wondering who on the board has started their own custom paiting business. I have been doing a lot of charitable work for friends and family on their cars (4 hoods 2 roofs, several touch up jobs, and hood and fenders of a hearse, and a motorcycle). I have been taking care of most of the materials (I should of had them pay for atleast that) but I felt bad because I knew it wouldn't come out as good as I wanted. But needless to say I feel I am to the point where I can start charging cost for my material and a nominal fee for my labor to the public. I was hoping some people could share their experiences. Advice would be great on how to go about this. Thanks

Try to remove yourself from these prople emotionaly and remember that they are customers. Shops are charging at least $38.00 to $45.00 per hour plus materials. You are not doing this for practice any more are you?

No. No more practicing. Unless it's something that I haven't tried yet (i.e blending tri coats, flames, etc.). Good advice. Thanks.

Anyone else? Thanks ! !
