It has been created only to pass on some helpful advice to individuals
who are considering setting up a picture framing business.
It is written by someone
who has successfully negotiated his way through the process of starting such a business
from scratch, running it successfully for ten years and emerging unscathed (and much
happier than when he started!) at the other end!
The workplace can be a pretty grim environment in 2011 - long hours, low pay and
more disturbingly, a lack of respect for the employees as human beings. Over the
last few years increasing numbers of individuals have chosen to opt out of the mainstream
and set up their own businesses. How many times have you heard people say things
like "I wish I could get out of the rat race and work for myself" and "I'm fed up
not being appreciated by my employer"?
Picture framing is just one of many possibilities
but it can be a viable option and, if you get it right, could change your life from
one of drudgery to complete fulfilment. Give it a try!
If you haven't been in the business you won't know how it all works.
I spent more
than ten years in the picture framing industry building up my business from scratch,
and can give you a good idea as to how the whole network operates.
It's not all a
bed of roses but on the whole, it's not a bad way to spend at least part of your
Picture framing is a decent industry run mainly by decent people, and
that's quite unusual in today’s cut-throat world.
