I want to know what risks I will be taking if I leave my present job and join an associate in painting houses and sharing the profits.

Hello Raymond,

There are many risks of going into business.

One is you may be sued by a customer for damaging their property or if they are unhappy with your work.

As a business owner, there is also a risk that your income will not exceed your expenses.

For more details, I suggest that you consult with an attorney that works with small businesses.

If you need a referral, please call me at 408-918-3161.

Good luck!
