Who here owns a business?
If so, what kind of a business?
I used to own my own business. A custom jewelry business grew out of a an interest in gemstones and metalsmithing. I was quite successful at it for more than a decade and finally grew tired of the work schedule. Most of the year it was 7am to 7pm six days a week and from thanksgiving till about valentines day it was 6am to 8pm seven days a week. I sold 85% of the business to my senior employees and retain 15% as a source of investment income.

I am trying to start my own business but I feel like everything on the web is a rip.
