Opening the store

Guest post by Gerard Mcdaniel

When I opened up my garage I didn’t have any business experience and I wasn’t sure how good I was going to be at it. I’ve been learning slowly and making mistakes every day but there’s no way anyone could know about some of the hardships I was going to deal with without actually going through it themselves. For example, I had a hard time finding some way to accept credit cards and my customers just weren’t able to pay me cash for the things I was doing to their cars. A friend finally told me about which has really helped but things like that are the things you learn when you’re on your own and trying to run a business. There are tons more lessons for me to learn but it won’t take long at this rate – each day brings some kind of new challenge but so far I feel like I’ve really been holding my own when it comes to being a small business owner with a good head on his shoulders.

My Dad's 1930 Ford Roadster which my then two young daughters love to joyride with Nana and Grandpa. It is now sold for $16,000.

One weekend of summer 2010, my Sweetie and I spent another weekend at Byron. I was finally able to convince my Sweetie to go camping in the campsite instead in the hotel which we usually ended up every time we planned to go camping.

It was indeed a huge step for her to finally agree to sleep in the tent.
And here is the picture of the bonfire we had that time.
