Carpentry To Mobile Catering, What Are My Chances?
I have been self-employed for over 30 years; but would dearly love to get out of the building trade.
I am in a position to buy a catering trailer/van and reading your story & q+as has given me the confidence i was lacking.
One of my main reasons for wanting this type of business is to give my 23 yr old son a chance to get on in life as he has aspergers syndrome which has meant many doors are closed for him (don’t believe there’s no discrimination)
The problem i see is that most catering units will only support one wage; do you know of any gov help there might be,(he is registered disabled)
I am not expecting to earn as much money as i would as a carpenter
At this stage in my life i don’t have the same commitments so running a business that i know i would enjoy (especially working alongside my son is far more important i am not afraid of hard work ,35 yrs in all weathers on site toughens you up!
Sorry for rambling on so, anyway thanks for such a great site...........richard
