What’s the OPPORTUNITY?
When getting into any new career or starting a business, the entrepreneur asks, “What is the opportunity for ME?” Businesses come and go, for sure, but for more reasons than just the economic outlook or governmental statistics. We can tell you after 30 years in the home inspection industry (and two recessions), the opportunity is as good as the individual going after it. If you’re willing to:
- Work hard
- Stay the course
- Mitigate your risks
- Do the things you’re taught
You can be a successful home inspector – long term.
