Hello Everyone

Hey! I'm new to this forum so just thought I would introduce myself... I used to ride horses when I was in he 7th or 8th grade... i'm now in college... I just switch my career to follow the dream i've had since I was a child... I feel like an idiot or not doing it in the beginning but it doesnt matter anymore... My dream is to open a business with two parts (that have nothing to do with each other lol!) the first part is a pet shop for reptiles only because i'm in love with them... I will be the breeder so there is not middle man which makes things cheaper for customers... the second part is to own a stable for people to board their horses... I also want to eventually own Arabians and breed them as well... I would love to do more than just board up horses... but I can't think of anything that I could do... so I am here to learn from knowledgeable people and maybe this will help me decide what else I would like to do other than breed and board... So bare with me for the first couple of months when I ask a bunch of quesions... I do catch on kinda fast though...

THANKS SO MUCH!
Melissa

this one certainly isnt inactive :) we usually have around 150 or so people through every day :) just depends on what time zone you are in and if you are on at the same time as other people :) to most things you will get a pretty quick reply ;)

Enjoy the forum

Welcome Melissa Don't feel bad about switching career plans. Feel free to ask anything no matter how silly you may think it is

Thanks! I'm actually really excited about switching career plans... i'm just not sure if I can make a living off of what I want to do... that's why I decided to come here and get some ideas... I don't care about being a billionaire or anything absurd like that.... I just want to be happy but if I can't make enough money to raise myself on then i'm going to have to figure something else out... :/ yall don't have to worry about the reptile part of my career plan... lol I know ALOT of people who just do that and nothing else and make a living off of it... i'm just wondering if the Equine side of my career plan will work out? I'm very open for opinions and suggestions... actually i'm begging for them! LOL!

well the good thing is that you do have the reptiles to fall back on...and your taking business mng,..so that helps...alot of places here go under bc the owner does not have any business sence...and you are getting that!!
