cool sold out

big day for me today.......

after 9 years of hard work and huge learning curves , today i sold my business.

started out right on 9 years ago this week as a complete having no experiance in small business or window tint, etc.
decided that i would give it a go and see what happened . big gamble but you do things like that sometimes.

after building the business up from virtualy nothing over 9 years into a well known and respected bussiness , today i have handed it over to the new owners .will be staying on for 2 months to help them settle in.

feels kind of wierd now ...............?????


havn`t got any definate plans for the future , lots of ideas , just need to see what works out.

hope to do some travelling get to play with my car more get a life but just now i feel a bit like a lost sheep

Re: sold out

thanks for the replies guys,

its going to be good to have some time off for myself for a change.
but saying that, i dont regret going into business st all as it was a great experiance and somthing that i`d wanted to do for a long time.

i did ok out the sale, didn`t make a million but sold at a fair price for both of us and i will have enough to get me started in something eles or maybe a very good deposit for a house somewhere.

might get a normall job for a while , look at getting back into heavy industry , maybe the mines.???

yeah that proberly the area that i will be looking at.

might get back into the tinting etc again one day but looking for a bit of a change for a while first. can still do a bit part time to keep my hand in.

my computer went with the business when i sold so thats why its taken me a while to respond, need to buy a laptop soon.
