What should I do?


Recommended Posts

Well I'm at a point with my current job where I just can't take it much longer. I've been here for over 2 years, I'm the only one that does what I do here and yet I'm talked down to because I'm a young kid who looks like a punk to be honest :thumb I'm a nice kid and get along with everyone but I get no respect at my job. I'm off wednesdays and thursdays and work every weekend. I've been into tinting for 2-3 years now just never devoted my time fully. Since being on this forum and having tinted 20-30 vehicles(I know its not alot) I'm not a complete noob but am not 100% satisfied in my knowledge of the business. I have decent insurance at my current job but it's not that great. I have a 10 month old daughter and want to make sure she has insurance. I'm considering leaving my job to start tinting out of my dads car audio shop full time. What would you guys suggest? Yes I would love to be trained properly but as I've said in previous posts, no one around here is willing so I'm thinking about just going for it, sink or swim. What would you do?

Sorry for the vent and the long post

Stay, change the punk look and perspective inside and out. Meanwhile, work your dad's audio shop when not working the current place. Once Dad's tint following swells to needing you there more, then make the move. :spit

Well I can't change the looks. I stretched my ear lobes when I was 19 because I thought it was cool. Probably one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made. Other than that I wear normal clothes and a hat with short hair and facial hair. I don't try to stand out its just because of my ears lobes.

Hafa adai (hello) DGr33n,

The cross road you're at seems a bit confusing when the answers are right in front of you. This site, being a tinter is a site I wish was around 20 years ago when we started our business.

There were already some great advice. Take a look at the "Shop owners" forum. Excellent and real info there if you're considering ownership. But...I would like others would say, "get more experience".

The one most positive thing you have on your side is you being the only one currently doing what you're doing at your work place. The customers will get to know you and when they find out you went out on your own...the word spreads. The beginning for you...

kind regards,

Pac. Islander

Well only problem is I don't work directly with customers. I work in a lab where we test fluids on plugs to determine how viscous they are. We also test chemicals for companys to determine if their chemical will help fractures in the earth stay open so they can get their oil/gas and so much more. I'm a newb when it comes to owning a business that's why I would just work at my dads shop. No overhead and all the profit goes to me.
