As stated, I would want to go to a good school because I have no experience and you can get like 5 years experience going to 1 year of school. Then do the manufacturer training, which is another 3 mos. or so, then work for a year to 2 years. I already have a Bachelors in Business Admin. and have been managing a block of business worth about $3-4 mil. in revenue for 4 years, so I feel like I could manage the responsibility. However, I am now 28 years old and I am making about $100k a year, which makes it harder to leave. I still can't figure out if I don't like my job, or I just don't like work. I fear it may be the latter.

I think we have some good similarities...
there was an article in the economist about a car guy that left his "wall street" job to run a repair shop for fancy cars.
He is reportedly doing well.
If you want to come to Montreal ( or make a suggestion ) and set something up there.. I am for sure your partner.

Re: I think we have some good similarities...
Where in SC? I am located in Greenwood. I have always thought of opening a shop to work on higher end cars. I cant really leave my ob, but if I ever ran across a good mechanic htat needed a partner (capital) then it would be something I would consider. There is only one guy here that will touch a BMW. He is pretty good, and is a very nice fellow, but I wonder how much longer he will stick with it (he isnt too young). Good luck!
