Default An irish angle

Hey everyone,
I am delighted to become part of your community. My name is Garrett and my business started on February 1st this year. I previously worked for the family business for 17 years learning my trade from the ground up. The recession made **** of the company forcing staff numbers down from 40 to 5. Unfortunately at that stage there were too many chiefs hanging onto the same lifeboat who were not prepared to dig in and keep scooping out the incoming water. So I decided to jump ship and paddle my own canoe before we all drowned.
Anyway things are ok. I'm just about keeping my head above water. I've made a couple of pricing errors, under and over pricing and I've got a couple of guys on a part time basis as the work comes in.
I'm hoping this site will help me push things along as I have big ambitions for TrendSet design & decor to be the biggest in the city.
Anyway looking forward to chatting to you all eventually
Regards,
Garrett

welcome, hope we can help you set your compass bearings right so you can navigate this stormy economy, or at least throw you a life preserver before you get eaten by the sharks of the recession.

Thanks fellas,
Already I've found some interesting bits and pieces on here. The biggest one fir me would be from the technology aspect. If there is anything out there in my favourite country in the world we haven't used here yet.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm looking forward to my honeymoon period running out and my ears being roasted for something I've said.
