New again! From Louisville

8 posts in this topic

Hey y'all,

its been a few years since I was on this side of the business.  I'm a former traveling graphics installer who's life was sideswiped when my lovely Mrs and I adopted two little guys from Ukraine, both with Down Syndrome...that was 6 years ago now!  Traveling for weeks on end wasn't an option so I started something completely different (a foreclosure inspection company).  Fast forward a few years and I'm now in seminary, sold the foreclosure business and found a sweet part time gig doing fleet graphics and wraps for a great business here in Louisville (premier fleet graphics).  Well, the belt is tight and the forementioned two crazy sons of mine are now 6 and 9 and I'm showing these guys the ropes of entrapenureship and work ethic.  We have a very small side business that has had them (with a lot of help now) inserting product cards, cut vinyl, and a couple color samples into poly bags, then attaching a header.  Basic stuff for now but the youngest is a strong learner, can read very well, and is showing signs of wanting to learn the design side.  The older one tolerates it and likes to dance (ha ha!) Anyway, thanks for everything I've learned so far and the print responses to the couple questions I've already posted!

Hello and welcome. Sounds like a fun training activity. I wish I had that opportunity as a young person.
