Are you an entrepenerial (sp?)type? My dad was, my bro is, but I'm not. I like a somewhat secure paycheck. You probably know if you are or not. Why not take the job offered, and start your own gig on the side? See where it takes you? -----Original Message----- From: Mark Sawyer <mechmark@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Fri, 20 Jul 2007 9:59 am Subject: [tcb] New job Well, the boss dropped the hammer and said that Diversified Lithographics, Inc. ?(where?I work and print t-shirts)?will be closing it's doors at the end of the month. I have some ideas of what I want to do next. I have been offered a position with Gulf Coast Promotions (The company that bought the embroidery and screen printing equipment from DLI) to continue to run the production plant. I also have another possible opportunity to go into business for myself. Just not sure which career path to take. ? 1) Do I look for another job in the printing industry?? ? 2) Do I take the job doing screen printing and embroidery??? ? 3) Do I pursue going into business for myself???? ? Been losing sleep over this dilemma for a few nights now. ? Opinions?
