Anyone here Own or Run their Own Company or Family Business?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Like the Title says Anyone here Own or Run their Own Company or Family Buissness?

My faimly has Owned and Run our Roofing company since 1894. I was just wondering if anyone else has their own buisness. I like meeting people that own their own company and take pride in there work!

I only work for the Faimly Buisness on weekends now but Im still a part of it and my Brother still runs it and my Mother is the Owner/Secretary - (Owner since my father passed away but, my brother will take over ownership soon)

I own a computer repair / service business, I have one technician and an office manager that work for me. I've been doing it for 7.5 yrs, get a little burnt out, but at least it gives me the freedom to take an afternoon off here and there to golf.

My Mom owns a truck accessory store, she took it over in the late 1980's after my Grandpa. She has the same farmers coming back every couple years because she is honest and doesn't sell junk like some of the other places in town.

I worked there when I was going to college and love being able to have access to a lift lol.

My Brother and I own and operate a 3,000 acre irrigated farm in Central Wisconsin. 4 more full time employees. It certainly keeps us off the streets. The most interesting part of owning a family business is listening to politicians tell you how the bills they are sponsoring are going to help you. Talk about being clueless!!!!!!

I've had my own business of one kind or another since 1989. My current company (optical fiber sales) is 6 years old and I'll probably stick with it for a while. I've had a computer networking company, a software development/internet application company, and a guitar amplifier company. Having your own company is great but can be a real burden. Balance is always the key!

We have two businesses, my office and a gymnastics gym. I is a little tedious at times because I work my office and then head to the gym to take care and put together gym equipment. Do not get home b4 9 pm most nights.

I am a contractor, i also own a self storage facility, i am working on purchasing / partnering with two different rental franchises that go hand in hand with self storage. I have plans for a solar farm but i don't know that it is going anywhere fast. I am partners in a real estate firm that owns and leases student housing at local colleges. 2010 has been a year of new investment...and freakin killed my golf game.

politicians never help you...even if they have good intentions they will mess it up by the time it is done. That is almost as sure as the sun coming up!!
