Congrats man. I was lucky enough to be given a chance at a lawnmower shop when I was 18. I now make 50k a year selling lawnmowers 10 years later. Hard work, being on time (half the battle for people this day in age) and learning something new everyday will lead to success.

I worked at a shop for 4 years. Definitely a labor of love. You won't make a lot of money, but it was a good time. If I could make ends meet at one, I would definitely go back to shop life.

I really wanna work at a shop or own my own someday. Mainly just as a second job but I would kill to work at one these days. I love working on bikes for money. I usually do it for my friends for free, which kinda sucks actually once my brother brought up the fact that if I move they won't be able to fix them lol.

I'm bummed about that, but hopefully they can learn from me before I peace out in a few years.

I really want to build wheels and other stuff for people.
