Hello everyone
I'm own a few businesses, I'm 28, and from NC.

The first and oldest business is a green technology company. We sell numerous products for home and autos. I just recently discontinued the retail side due to the lack of good help. The commercial side of the business is growing faster than I can keep up with and its more important than the retail end. Hopefully one day I can find some good help and bring the retail end back to life. Until then it will be b2b and commercial.

The second is a fleet consulting company. We analyze a fleet of vehicles operational costs and then recommend products from a number of our partner companies. We focus mostly on trucking and construction fleets now.

The third business kind of fell in my lap. My dad owns a fairly large gold buying business and some of the gold he buys as scrap is actually very nice jewelry. So I buy the quality stuff from him and resale it. Typically I can sell something like a diamond ring for about a 1/4 of what its worth. We try to turn over money quickly, I'm sure we could sell the jewelry for more but right now we sell it very quickly.

If anyone has any questions I have encountered just about everything in the past 9 years. If I can help in any way let me know.

Thanks guys
