After working for others so many years and watching them make all the money, I decided to buy my boss out and he was thinking of closing the shop. I bought it as soon as I could. My motivation was I was tired of working for others and wanted my own business. It was a great idea and it worked out great for many years till I sold it to an employee and retired early. I wanted to do things the way I thought best other than all the bad things I saw when working for others.
