Hi all. I hope this is the right place to post this. I really needed a place to put my thoughts and get some unbiased feeback.
I am thinking of quitting my job and starting a business with my husband. Currently, he is a photographer but it does not provide steady income (we don't really advertise or anything). He is home with our kids and is working toward his master's degree as well. Together, I believe we can have a very successful photography/design business. I have tried doing my part (marketing, corresponding with customers, bookkeeping) while working full time and going to school part time, but I am spent.
We have enough money saved to cover one year of expenses (all our bills and then some), but not much beyond that...and we do have a few weddings lined up for 2013. I think if he and I could delve into this full time we could get this off the ground. If we don't see the results we hope for within 10 months, then he or I will return to work. We will also remain in school, so we will be furthering our education while we attempt this.
I think it could work out, and even if I have to go back to work in a year, the groundwork will be done for this business to continue to grow.
I would love any feedback you could provide. It's very late so if I left out anything crucial, sorry, just ask if you need more info to decide whether I'm nuts or not.
