Default PC Repair Business Subforum

It would see that we are getting the occassional thread about people wanting the start up a PC Repair Business and is looking for advice on what to do. I was thinking that maybe setting up a subforum for this ins the Computer Jobs, Degrees, Certifications forum.

i suggest naming it entrepreneur discussion. I don't think it needs to be separated though. I think there's more threads asking which school or training to take.

I think it would provide not only a section for people to ask, but also to find local business's and also put up the 'general knowledge' questions and what has and hasn't worked for business owners.

KC and I have had to explain a dozen times or so a business plan based off charning someone 30 dollars for an hour of work won't work. Posties may include:
-What to know before starting your business (licensing, etc)
-Dont's of owning a business (don't charge $30, etc)
-Tips (things that have worked for members)
-Businesses near you (local business that people own here on this forum own and local businesses that members would recommend)

Just some ideas.
