Or are you thinking about going into bussiness I will someday, I use to have be self-employed, and I loved being my own boss. I use to be a Private Nurse. I did it for almost 20 years. I would work in people homes, Now they call it, Home Health assistent. So what will you do, or what line of Bussieness are you in? Maybe someone in your family?

I just got involved in the chocolate, healthy chocolate business but haven't been doing much with it. I have too much other clutter in my life that needs to be sorted before I really spend a lot of time. But its got huge potential..

No wonder we're on the same brain wave, we have SO much in common! I also did in home nursing for many years. One of the reasons I'm having trouble getting medicaid, etc, is that I did more private jobs than traditional employers jobs, and not enough went into social security. I also liked being my own boss for the most part. I didn't charge what traditional agencies did, and did it more for those families who couldn't afford care otherwise. (Not all of my patients and families were low income, just quite a few of them.) I don't regret it, only the part where I can't receive help myself because of not enough going into social security (live and learn lol)

When I was 14, I had my own pet care business. I looked after peoples pets in their own home while they were away. I was always working, never had a days rest, and when I finally moved out of town 5 years later, my clients were very upset because I was the cheapest and most reliable of the pet sitting business out there! I loved it and would like to set up my own business one day. Maybe selling my own crafts and show casing and selling those made by other crafties as well. Already got my namebrand sorted out too. the other business I would like to own is a pet hotel, not just for cats and dogs, but birds fish and everything else too. Horses, sheep etc catered for as well. Still looking for the winning lotto numbers though.

Wow, Marcie, you are up late. I used to clean homes for a business of my own but it didn't go very well. I would only have a couple a week to do and didn't make very much doing it and with gas prices so high, it wasn't worth my time.
