I believe I have found an idea that will change my life completely and am in the process of planning it out . What I want to start is a instructional class on basic home repair. The class would be 75% to 90% hands on training instead of a long lecture. I am the type of person who learns by doing and I believe I can teach in this manner also. This will be small scale at first and with time will grow into a business that will provide me with the income I desire and the freedom to enjoy life rather than work 40 hrs. a week and spend the weekends trying to regain my energy to go to work again on Monday . I joined 48 days to get help with the planning part of this adventure because as I said before I learn by doing. I know if I can get this off the ground I will be able to correct any problems that arise make this this plan work for me and my family .
Update: The home repair classes never made to reality. I know why it never got off the ground. Teaching and being in the spotlight (so to speak ) is not really me. I am an introvert and do not like the attention.
Well recently I took a small leap of faith and left my my job. I had been unhappy there for years.

I want to put a plan together to make a small income from home. I have a 20x40 foot workshop with a lot of…Continue

By the first of the year no more day job and start working from home. The next five years will be spent acquire enough money to by 40 to 80 acres. once the land is bought and paid for I want to farm for my family and to help generate income. This is what I hear in my head when ever I say this to myself or think about it " You can't make a living that…Continue
In February 2011 I joined this community with hopes of starting a new carreer. Unfortunately I did this out of anger and frustration with my situation at that time. I did not take time to calm down and make the right choices. Too much emotion involved. The past year and half have not been wasted tho. I have done some more looking inward and listening to more books and now I believe I am ready to make the next step to making the life I want not what life is handed to me.
