What is involved to accomplish a ongoing income in this line of work instead of a “linear” income? Is franchising necessary? Building a system and your brand. I would love to get out of trading hours for money at some point in my life. Im guessing few to none here have made it that far but im hoping someone here has similar goals if your planning for retirement or hard times. Im starting young so plenty of time to build towards my goals but taking the right paths is what id like to learn more about. Im leaning towards a training systems, selling a line of chemicals, franchising and other things like this in the long run, focusing pressure washing businesses. Having another income thats more steady than once every 3 years is nice and ongoing income that is achievable with me in the picture as little as possible.
Something that i have thought about before choosing this line of work was.
Capital: which is something i took seriously i bought what i could afford and nothing i couldn’t afford to lose. No financing!
Risk: i kept a secondary job so if my self owned business failed it was not a make or break it kind of thing
Expertise: I’ve always gave a job my all and studyied up on all challenges that job envolved to provide professional results.
Time: im putting everything i have into this as responsibly as possible to be as successful as i can and to build my business as fast as i can and still enjoy time with my family when i can( hardest task for me)
This all came about from talking with a golf pro a few years ago and he is what made me look elsewhere from the industrial line of work and venture out into a self made career.
Im not the best at expressing what i mean in text or words but i hope yall are understanding what i would like to maybe achieve. Im not saying you cant land a steadier line of commercial jobs like other here have done. Im talking about doing that AND having a back up income that could be done at a old age or sick/hurt in a bed.
