Bear with me so I can fill you guys in on the plan. Hey guys, I figured I would throw this topic up here since I have been thinking about it alot lately. I want to start small part time business that will pay some of the bills while keeping my non-stop workaholic craziness at bay. I am currently deployed overseas and after this trip my military career is coming to a halt. I need a change of pace. I got a good gig set up for when my enlistment is up and I will still be doing military stuff like training army, usmc, and some coast guard guys for short periods of time and the money is decent but when I am not fulfilling a contract with this company then I would like to do something that I really have always wanted to do. I want to open a small all purpose boat shop that allows me to build rods, maybe tie some flies or bucktails, customize boats here and there for people and I might even build a few one-off boats. I grew up helping my dad build boats and I have been doing it recreationally on my own for a few years. I mainly find beat up hulls and refit them but I have done a few stitch and glue hulls which are a blast. Same thing for rods, got a few under my belt for personal use really. I have done a few rods for friends but not anything crazy. The big thing here is the name... I have a few in the works but I don't want to un intentionally copy anyone. Here is my dillemma... I want to name it The Old Florida Boatshop but I know there is a reel company called old florida reels. I don't fish their gear at all but I dont want any griping by anyone b/c they think I snaked their name. My reason for wanting to name the company this is because I miss Old Florida really bad and I want to try to keep what I love alive even if it is in such a small way. It is slipping away and it just kills me to see it happen. Am I a copy cat turd for wanting to name the business this? I would be mainly focusing on maintaining the older more laid back classic style that florida is really all about. I know I don't have to get into what old florida is all about here b/c most people know what I am talkin about. So I could keep typing about this for another hour or so but I am gonna stop now. What do you guys think??? Am I crazy or is it something that I should go for? My heart is telling me to do it but financially it might not be the best move to make a million. I dont give a damn about making a million, I just want to be able to support my family and do what I love every day. Give it to me straight fellas. Sorry for the crazy amount of typing.
