I've always wanted to own a liquor store and a bar. Near impossible to get the liquor store license I've found..


I wanted to do something along the same lines.

Buy a few limos, maybe spend 150K. I couldnt believe some of the prices for limo rides.

Set up an awesome website and all and hire drivers.

Turns out though you need a taxi/limo license which go for hundreds of thousands of dollars! That idea went down the drain.

One is an ice cream pie business I have been doing for years. Since deciding on going into cleaning full time I have let that business kind of die down as I make a lot more in an hour of cleaning than I do making pies. I actually am down to only one account for the pie business and I only spend about 4 hours every other week on it.

My other business is actually something new. I will PM you about it.
Hey Todd, will you send me your ice cream pie business idea?

If you share your recipe I might be able to convince my wife it would be a good business for her, but I would probably gain 20 lbs before she sold any.

1. The majority of my income comes from my cleaning and janitorial business.

2. Small landscaping business. Mainly weekly lawn mowing

3. I'm also licensed to sell health, life, and dental insurance. Did it full time a couple years ago so still have some residual income coming in each month. Now I just do it part time on the side

As many others have mentioned my goal is to get into a few rental properties for a retirement. Probably single and multi family houses. I'm in my mid twenties so I have some time to build this up

I am just starting out but I am planning on offering all surface cleaning solutions. I am starting with carpet and tile but want to expand into cleaning brick , siding, concrete rental/lease make readies, and my wife is going to slowly build up a maid service with just choice clients. The goal is to be the only company a customer needs to call when it comes to cleaning solutions

My 2 brokerage accounts, playing poker, and royalties from Intellectual Property.

P.S. There is a 50-50 chance the stock market will crash again this Autumn. It could even be worse than the crash of 2008. Those of you in the market may want to consider buying some put insurance. A great way to earn during times like that are to go short in the market. For those of you with nerves of steel, there are some killer 2X and 3X inverse ETF's for day and swing trading.

Nice website Marian. I really like it how you have those 3 vans lined up like that in those 3 pictures. Particularly the picture where the doors of the vans are all open and the hoses are out ready to go to work! :)

I've always wanted to check your company out. Now I'd really like to see all that too!

Where in IL are you?

A lot of you have mentioned rental properties for retirement income. I have had rentals for over 20 yrs and dealing with tenants is challenging. I don't want to spend my "retirement" dealing with tenants. I will not consider myself fully retired until they are all sold and I am living off a large sum of money in the bank.
