I've started my own business. Well, techinically my partner and I have. We're opening up our own private practice which will offer speech therapy and audiology. We finally signed the lease after what seems to be too long a time... We were still waiting to hear back from the state if our corporation name was OK or not and while we were waiting, the previous owner of the building we are renting sold it and we had to renegotiate the lease with the new owner. I ordered a boat load of evaluation and treatment materials last week (and I thought bass stuff was expensive) and they should be here this week. We are hoping to be able to move in under the radar while the building is getting forked over to the proud new owner (a very good guy, BTW) and be up and running by June 1st at the latest. I'm still kind of nervous and I kind of can't believe that I'm actually doing it but I think it will work out after we get all the red tape sorted and out of the way. Unfortunately, this also means no more buying high-dollar bass (or any other) items for a while. :scowl: No more loads of free time for internet fun. No time for a band either, ( ) but if this works out and I can eventually quit my day job, I'll start my days at 10:00 a.m. and have plenty of time for that!
