I would strongly advise against that, unless you're going to be swinging a hammer while also going to college. You not only need a business education; you also need a sense of how the work actually gets done by the workers in the field.I think I would like to start my own small contracting company once I finish college.
Yea that makes since to me, 95% is a big number. I wouldn't start FRESH out of college anyway, I didn't mean for it to sound like that. J is right, I'm going to need a lot of work on communication. I'm what you consider a hillbilly I guess lol, a modern day version.FramerGuy19 said:I like your enthusiasm and don't wanna seem like a downer but starting your own business right outta college isn't always the best of ideas.
I read a statistic on here that said something like 95% of newly opened construction companies go out of business within 5 years.
Working through college is one thing but I think there is alot to be learned from working with someone else for a couple years before going out on your own. It allows you to have steady income as well as someone who can teach you the ropes of owning your own business, before you go out and try it on your own.
School as im finding it is a good starting point but alot of what you need to learn you learn in the first few years of actually working full time in the field
This is just my opinion and whats been told to me when ive talked to a couple local guys I know. If you can pull it off though all the more power to you.
