As a rather inactive member - I have been reading more and more and just can`t believe what a GREAT resource this is...so it`s inspired me to become more active here at SuN.
Anyway...I have been reading the posts about passions, etc. and have to ask the question: What if you are burnt out with what you are doing and so strongly desire to have your own business but 1)have never had one before and 2) the business you want and feel would be a great idea is something you have never professionall done?
I`m in technology. getting an mba. am burnt out and want to have my own business. I love making breads, etc. and so I launched an investigation and found that the rural area I am in has no bakery and the local businesses are clamoring for a local bakery so they can get their breads, etc. Plus my area is experiencing rapid growth. But all I keep hearing are the negatives since I`m not in the baking field. There has to be a way to make a good, decent profit in this ( I want 2 or 3 locations) and I can`t help but wonder why it`s so "impossible" just because i`m not a veteran in the field.
I figure I`ll do the planning, etc. and then seek out a veteran baker that shares my vision and can be the part of the business that I don`t have experience in.
any thoughts would be so appreciated.
