So this is an industrial building in an industrial area? Or a Barn behind your house? I know of a guy that has a barn at his home with 400 amp service, he has a complete machine shop. Full time business, 4 employees. He did over $400k last year in sales.

On the farm that I lived in at the time I started in 1976. The buildings were built for the business. At 75 I work mostly by myself with one full time helper plus my wife in the office. Bring in part time help when I get behind. Normally make a buck or two over expenses. Manage to work on tractors and raise miniature horses as well.

I wish my dad had the motivation that you have.

My dad is 73 and sits and reads books, goes to the gym to stay active plays golf when the weather is good. Dad was a sales manager for years, no real blue collar skills to do anything like wood working or fabrication.

I agree that if you sit and tell yourself that your career is done then your mind says......time to check out.
