The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Technology compared to quality
« on: March 01, 2013, 02:35:52 PM »
1 yes
 1a electronic capabilities on sew machines, hot knifes, foam etc.
2 somewhat
3 not realy- but recycled circle if thats the game
4 quantity not a related quality
 4b no one could afford the products

Ideas uh, Thoughts i got - old booth seats, mooring covers, burbon chairs,
cool bucket seats, bike & atv seats, marine vinyl and water.  I have always seen people qualify these as worth while and maintain way more than they or i should have.

answer - a lot more of us are in the same range of income

Just to get some kaklin going Im not so old i cant learn new tricks
On a side note though having knowledge of salliemae, and title 4, and college grant stuff from the ole kitchen table planning or discussing, its a pain.  Most training I see is strictly out of pocket savings,  dont rush to thinking where im going.  Pro training is where im looking simply because at my age I understand what its like to have a pro in the room and knowing I did apprentice work many years ago and a different feild of study.
Im kinda po  because 529's or 401 wds cannot be used for most/all i been seeing trade module training without a he- very heavy tax penalty.

im here learning from you guys so bring it on, uh this here shoulder is sore though haha

All i can say at this spring training time is Good Eye, for bringing and sharing that. Its a reason this forum has so many professionals as yourself.
Ive been trying to do home work  I guess it is anyway for myself re careering.
As i put 30 plus years in a different occupation and now have had the idea and oppurtunity  to pursue a talent that i enjoyed being a very small part of as a senior in school.
To close Id like to say Im from the school where apprenticeship and work matters.

Again Thanks

I am convinced repitition is the best,  dealing with all of the calls is some other topic that i need to study.  Theres several ways people are checking and valuing options before commiting to be your customers.  Its almost like you need to funnel the question  to info for your particular routine.  Anyhow you always heard them say in marketing the more people see or hear an ad is the proven winner.  Not so much the big sign or blinking, but other repitition.
It worked for my drill Sargent!

The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Building an asset or Building a Business?

Aspiring almost started to consider being an apprentice,  im trying to look way down the road on this topic. 
Guys business is talented personel in demand, how it is known is the asset.
i wish i already had your talents yet i feel comitment. 
 i had an oppurtunity as my earlier seniorship in school part time removing finishes on furniture, and the labor for loading and delivery of reupholstered, refinished products. they were good trade people to work with.
Im Back
