Wink Hello

KK guys I am the better half of an electrician! My husband has been doing electrical work for more than 10 years. Now we are trying to start a business so we have a lot of questions! So I was looking around and found this forum and decided to join because of the valuable information I have found here! Thanks for having me!

Welcome to the forum (both of you). Search through some of the old posts or just look for posts by Brian John on business matters, there is a wealth of info here.

I work for a property management group and my husband is working for the other side of the same company! We are trying to start our business then hopefully quit working for the companies we work for now. But I help my husband do just about everything...pull wire....etc!

Thank you all for being so kind!

Awesome!! Sounds like a good team!! I worked with a guy who started his own business and his wife got her trainee card so she could help him with wire pulls and such. It worked out well for them!! Good Luck!!
