Do you work at a Hot Rod shop and find yourself getting frustrated with the day to day grind? Sure, you love what you do, but do you love the people that you do it with, the red tape that comes with it, and someone else making all the money off of your hard work and labor?
Why People Want Their Own Hot Rod Shop
Many people think about starting their own Hot Rod Shop because:
- They Want to Make More Than Poverty Wages and Working Long Hours: When you work for someone else, they get to reap all of the profits. That can be frustrating, especially because you are working so hard. If you want to make more than minimum or low wages, starting your own shop can be one way to do so.
- They Have Issues with How Others Operate: If you have a boss that says it’s their way or the highway, that can be difficult. So is working with coworkers that slack off and get paid just the same as you do at the end of the day. With your own shop, you control how things operate and who you work with day in and day out.
- They Dislike Working for Others: When you work for someone else, you have to play by their rules. You might have ideas for expansion and new business avenues, but if your boss is fine with the status quo, you can feel stifled and like your creativity and thoughts don’t matter. With your own hot rod shop, you set the rules and you can make the tough choices for where to take the business.
Think You Want to Own Your Own Hot Rod Shop?
So, you think you want to open your own Hot Rod shop, but do you know everything that comes with it? Yes, you’ll have your own place, your own hours, and the freedom to make decisions, but with that comes long hours, lots of bills to be paid, obtaining a business license, alarm systems, insurance, and more. The list of starting your own business goes on and on and on, but honestly, at Orange County Hot Rods, I’ve found that the reward is more than worth the risk. After almost one and a half years of working for someone else, I finally had the means and drive to open up my own shop. Yes, the hours are long, and dealing with billing can be stressful, but I wake up every day with a smile. I have an immense passion for the restoration work that I do and for the last 3 years that has shown through.
