Would I be too old to start this business at 52? thinking of hiring one or two people but sometimes going out on a job on my own.. I'm generally fit, have been doing real estate and IT work, but want to get out of the rat race.. what's realistic annual net income doing this? I'm in Suwanee GA, suburb of Atlanta..
Hey there, you make this plan sound so easy. The age is only number, as real estate agent current, former) you should have enough contacts to go ahead and start the business. How will you manage the business and delegate without learning the ins and outs first? Walking into a customer's home comes with great responsibility. Not only do you have to protect their home (placing floor coverings, corner guards), you need to assess what chemistry and tools and the method to use. Before you ask how much I can make, you must answer what services and quality you will offer. So the short answer would be to learn the theory first, ask for a ride-along second and then come up with a business plan if you think this business is for you. Imagine going to a fast food restaurant to get a burger.
You have to start the car, drive the car, decide on what you want to eat, place an order, pick up the good, go back inside the restaurant because they gave you the wrong food,
eat the food, digest it, and then fall asleep because you overindulge. Getting one burger requires many steps.
Forget the burgers; you have to start a business. Do you want to rephrase your question?
