Hello to all out there. Just a brief bio: My wife and I work for a local law enforcement agency and weither you know it or not; your local cop probably isn`t making a ton of cash. After 10 years we have managed to get promoted but for us that means away from the house more with the additional pay. Not a trade we were happy about. We have five daughters 15-3 and my wife would like to be financialy in a position were she can quit and stay home for the kids. She is vested, so there will be a small monthly stipen but not enough to get by. I have had two previous business`s that were both sold, but I had a lot of free help to get the tax paperwork done. I never had major issues with the sales, marketing, or production end of the business; but I was freed up from the beancounting.
My wife and I have incorporated and are currently awaiting the paerwork back from the feds and the state.
I may have lots of dumb questions, and I tens to not sugarcoat things. Please understand I never intend on offending anyone.
My goal, make enough money to supplement my wifes income. She really wants to stay home with the kids; I don`t know why. They drive me crazy.
In order to get her comfortable with the idea, I suggested starting with a hobby of ours. Fortunately for us, there isn`t a lot of local competetion. Unfortunatly for us, we will have to create our own market.
We are running it out of our home, and until receantly, we have not had an uncomfortable amount of start up costs.
The two things I am most concerned with are marketing costs and the paperwork end of things.
Thank you for having this available to those of us that need assistance.
