    Ever seen a recent grad start his own business?

    I might be forced to start my own business in order to keep my head above water. I am a recent grad with 3months experience. Ever seen a recent grad start his own business?

    If still unemployed, I might wait until next spring to start the company and get contracted with an insurance/warranty company who will get me customers and my reputation will be on me.

    You get a YES here.
    Keep the faith. I was 19 out of tech school, universal EPA, couldn't get a job with any company....Did my first job ever on my own (well my dad an electrician give me a hand) installing 2 3ton split. I invested all my profits in my 1st vacuum pump, B-tank, Torch set, and can of R-22.I did a few more service pull window units check boilers ect. then I relocate to NYC where there is no shortage of work, learned the trade and opened-up shop. If you truly want to be Independent the door is always open just do right by the customers and that door stays open.

    Sorry, you don't have a chance of making it.
    Make your expertise uniquely valuable.

    Make your influence uniquely far-reaching.

    I have drove around two months this summer 12-15 hour days next to an owner who worked for a warranty company and do find it very challenging with many problems on top of problems. I know the mess of dealing with warranty companies. How else will I take off the business? Word of mouth takes a while
