Hello I live in Rhode Island. I’m very interested in starting an inspection business. I can’t get it out of my mind. I am very nervous because reading thru old post and topics i get mixed signals on the overall success people are having. I don’t have any construction exp. I work for the navy as a ship builder (submarines) . My job is extremely detail oreanted but I really want to get out of that shipyard business. I’d really like to break out on my own.
I have 2 very close friends/family that are very successful in the real estate industry here in Rhode island . Both have told me that the inspectors they use are moving non stop and that business is very good right now.
I was basically looking for some guidance as far as what steps to take to get familiar with the industry. Like where did you all start? I’m 33 and it’s time I get out there and make a name for myself.
Before shipbuilding I did marketing in my area for a pretty large pizza chain. So they might come in handy. I am also not looking into diving in headfirst. I’d like to start slowly , learn the business and when ready go off on my own.
Any information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time
