You want free financial advice? What are you, some kind of Socialist?
Don't have kids. Move from an extraordinarily expensive neighborhood in an expensive region to Charleston before Charleston burgeoned. Get involved with risky start ups in a risky industry. Work with/for smart people you trust. Live frugally.
To say I'm retired is, in retrospect, hyperbolic... and probably just wrong. Comfortably in between situations by choice and the next one will be my own venture, how's that?
Also, I don't "presumably have a computer screen and a phone." I do. I have both.
Did you think I etched hieroglyphs and walked them to a Staples to scan and upload to the freaking City Paper's web site because I was so motivated about 700 giddy, breathless words about how entrepreneurial the Low Country is because some dude made 3 logos in his house?
Sir, I feel as if it is YOU who are new to the interwebz, not I.
I Can Not WAIT until next week's 700 dizzying words on how there may be a new pickled okra purveyor on the peninsula but is waiting to grow until his grandmother gives him more pickle jars.
David, here is where you hit me with how I'm anti-business. Make it work. Make it worth our while.
Hey David Farrow, I HAVE had articles written about me, I AM an entrepreneur. I'm close to retirement here at a young age from what I've done around the country. And an article about a dude that has a 9-to-5, and printed three fucking logos to put onto t-shirts..., REALLY? That is were you're gonna hang your hat on business vs government and other idiotic tropes? My point is/was, those t-shirts are so obscure and exclusive, their market (do you know what a market is?) will be tiny. There will be a maximum sell through, and then there will be 0 next sales.
As a businessman, I question the choices the paper made in commissioning this SOFT piece to trumpet entrepreneurship in the low country.
Some woman walked by me today with a t shirt that said something about Folly Beach. I wondered to my wife if the City Paper wrote 700 words on the schlub who designed and silk screened that t shirt.
Your response, obviously, would be that there HAS TO BE an article about that person, and if not... something something communism, Kenya, socialism, nanny government.
Thank you for being so stereotypical. It's comforting.
I know I'm being a jerk... HOWEVER, it's likely that selling 200 t-shirts may net $20 to $40. Awn Traw Preh NURE
I'd say... ok, I'm interested. How much? Sort of believe some are more valuable than others. What colors does the "Where's Clarkie?" come in? Does it come in a sinfully sexy too-tight v-neck for my wife?
I think you may soon be interviewed by the city paper and labeled an entrepreneur.
