Default Can't Believe I Didn't Look For This Site Sooner

Hi all,

I am currently an hourly employee but looking to make my start in business.

My fields of expertise include trucking, truck and auto repair, construction, electronics and electrical, automation, facilities MRO, and associated crafts and trades.

I currently am invested in a business a friend bought from the widow after the owner died. I am finding this to be a good opportunity to get to know the inner workings of a going business.

I also do side jobs when they are available in the above mentioned fields, not so much for income but to get little tastes of self employment and the things that go with it such as planning out jobs, cash flow, customer satisfaction, and turns of misfortune or "hard Providence" as I would call it.

Another interest of mine is finances and accounting and I am trying to learn as much as I can through Internet sources in my free time. I have just started using GnuCash for my personal finances and also have installed the A/R and A/P parts of it to help run my side jobs in a businesslike way.

Thank you for looking!
