Owning a Business?

Who else out there has their own business/es? We own a pest control company and a screen printing company and while we aren't rich, we are much better off than some others out there. We struggle some yeah, but we have high hopes of not doing that for too much longer. I was just curious if anyone else out there is self employed and how their business is doing in this economy.

  • My business is bringing in just enough to keep the household budget going. I am constantly looking for a pt job to help ease things up a bit. The economy here is pretty down, and me being an interior decorator (housing field, of course) there isn't a whole lot of anything beyond the one client I've had since starting.

  • I run a tiny cleaning/painting co. which is doing okay. I also recruit for Avon and that is doing well because everyone is looking to make money and it works for women with children.
