We are selling the farm  Reply with quote  

Hi,

My sister and I are selling a home and farmland that we own together. She wants her half of the money and neither of us want it anymore. We both live too far away to maintain it. Farm rent on the property is very cheap so local farmers will pay almost nothing for land rent or lease. I will receive a little over $200,000. I used to work on Aircraft for US Air until many jobs got outsourced. For the past 10 years, I have owned a small plumbing company, but due to the economy, it is doing pretty bad. Also, I am 46 and I am getting really tired of plumbing. It will make an old man out of you very quick. Every bone in my body hurts when I wake up in the morning. My wife and I owe about $80,000 on the home that we live in, and this is our only debt, besides normal monthly utility bills.

I would like to start some kind of new business that does not require back breaking manual labor like I have been doing for 27 years. I have thought about all kinds of things. ( Car wash, mini warehouses, Pawn Shop, Real Estate, Hardware store etc. )

We don't have a clue?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

With your past farming experience, maybe opening a nursery or a landscaping business would be a good fit? Or perhaps you could do something that uses your past mechanical experience?

Just a thought.

at first,you must do something vs your pain. new marijuana law can help, its simple. just came in to pharmacy and ask some marijuana (like alphala). And like job, i agree with "payment proof" you can start growing marijuana for sell. Just go to police, and receive license. you have some experience in growing, so i think its good idea.

After 27 years, what contacts do you have in the Pluming Industry and are they the big boys who can handle big jobs? You never mentioned where you live, so nobody can give advice on starting a business; also think about robbing banks before you think about growing marijuana.

Without contacts you're looking at a 9 to 5 job and I know you don't want that but if you know what you're capable of doing or getting done; send me an email at rburns3@nyc.rr.com. I can place bids on contracts that would keep the right pluming company working 24/7 forever.

many company in this business is public and trading their respective shares on the US market they are in complience with all laws and regulations....
they do great job, help people who have cancer. many year nature gives us drug to help, but we start make antibiotics, or try cured cancer by chemotherapy. I think, (and world community now example Spain, Canada, Israel, some US st. , South Korea and else...) medical marijuana, can help, and many research is approve this fact.

Do you have any idea of the procedures you'd have to go through for getting licensed to grow and sell this stuff? Federal, State, City and Municipal bureaucrats would be all over you with this, that and the other bureaucratic BS you will have to comply with and that's just the first act of the show.

Hmm. yep, some money on beginning it's obvious. but boom in medical sphere give good chance make money. Natural product save the world. And second, as I say, if you dont want get problem with license, and other problem, you always can invest money in public company whose growing MJ. no problem, and 100% its bring money (I mean not all investing, just a medical marijuana)
