    Could be a new career path. I know a guy that owns a hobby shop and has a F.F.L. I think he makes more actual net cash doing what you just did than he does with his "real" business.

    So into a New Era!
    In the last 3 weeks I have applied for and been approved for a Limited Liability Company in the state of Illinois and have received my IRS EIN number. It all happened so fast its really just a blur. I took my online training from the Union of Certified Auto Appraisers and can now do vehicle appraisals for Pre-Purchase Inspections, Fair Market Value, Insurance Appraisals, Prior to Loss Inspections, Diminished Value, Donation, Financial and Legal,
    I bought my domain name and started working on a website https://www.thehardestycompany.com
    Still needs some fine tuning but its out there. Going to focus on the appraisals and some minor restoration work. I traded my moped for a 1978 Yamaha XS1100E that has been sitting for 5 years, in the process of getting it running now.
    Already worked on a 1964 Tempest convertible that had been in storage for 10+ years, got it running and sold it for the owner.
    Also working on a 1951 Chevy Fleetline and old IH rat rod powered by a big block Chevy
    I should have done this years ago...

    Congratulations! A friend, Ike Sarver here in MI, has been doing appraisals for years. He is quite busy most times.

    That is great, sounds like you will be doing what you enjoy and make some money at the same time.

    Congratulations! Sounds pretty diverse. Always something different to do. Shouldn't get bored! Glad it happened fast for you. I already owned a company, and my incorporation seemed to drag on forever. But I had to change everything. Good thing you started out L.L.C. Good luck!

    When the last door closed on a stale room, one opened for a fresh open room with more light.
