Good evening all. I have been looking to start up a small business on the side for a long time. I am wondering has anyone here done this type of thing themselves? If so are you likely to run yourself into the ground? To give a bit of background I already work 45 hours plus in a week as a supervisor of a warehouse. The business I have rolling around my head is to get a hold of a mini digger buy an old pickup and trailer in the first instance and rent the digger out. Few things have to happen first. I need a small warehouse for storage and in an ideal world I need to source a business partner. I think having someone else on board is smart as two minds are better than one and although I have business and management knowledge I need someone who is good with invoices and stuff like that. My forty is managing day to day operations and working the long hours transporting the machine. ( I grew up on a farm I am used to working all the hours in the week. I'm looking for thoughts and advise. any is much appreciated. I am based in Angus Scotland. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
