And thats why 80% of the people who try to enter this line of work will fail. Everyone wants to open a shop and have little idea of what it takes to be successful. There is no need for the amount of shops that will be open in 10-15 years.95tbirdv8 said:You have the exact same thing in your mind as me.
Same here. I know there's "good money" in Engineering, but I love modifying what the factory gave me. I'm kind of looking into either starting a shop, or starting in a guy's shop that I know. either way, I'm only looking to be an ME for 15 years max.SloMo228 said:I'm planning to try and open up shop in the automotive industry as well. Right now I'm studying for a mechanical engineering degree and I plan to work at a large company for 4-10 years after graduation, to build up enough of a savings (and design and engineering experience) to open a shop. What I plan to do with my shop is a little different, and as of right now, no one else is doing it, so you'll all understand if I don't tell you what I'm going to do. But that's my plan. I don't care about making money, I don't care how big my house is or whatever, I just want to be doing some kickass stuff with cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
