Nearing the end of 2009 i decided put into work, something i always wanted to do, open a business. I Started off by learning the things needed to have a business open. I found that all you basically need is a business license, for tax purposes. Long story short, i got all the necessary paper work to go into a business. What i chose was xbox repair. At the time, there was virtually no competition, and no other shops doing / offering the same quality repairs i preformed. I spent 275 dollars on a machine called a Ayoue 968. This machine does BGA reflows to chips on the motherboard of most electronics allowing you to repair the soldiers or switch the chips out. I had prior knowledge of doing this through the long workings of electronics. I worked hard with other professionals who did the same things.
At the end of this business venture, i profited 98% in the year and a half i was open. What i really learned is how to deal with customers and how to manage my assets better. Now that i want to open another business, i feel like i have the basic skills and knowledge to do what i always dreamed of…. Being successful.
