New business

My husband has been wanting to start his own business for a long time. The plan was to build a shop on our yard this summer, and get things going. Well, we got approved for everything at the bank, got approved by the RM to put the shop on our yard, and decided what kind of shop we wanted to build.
The plans changed. Rob left his job at Load Line to go work at Framar in Winkler. We decided to go to the bank to get a line of credit for him to be able to buy cars. Not sure why we didn't do this years ago. We always waited to have money for him to buy a car. Now he can buy lots of cars when they become available, not have to find the money first.
So back to the business plan. His boss at Framar is letting him park his cars in the line up. This is great high way frontage. He has sold 5 vehicles in the last 5 weeks. He's currently looking for more to purchase.
He applied and was accepted for a bond, which will help him get his dealers permit. We have registered a business name. The business is TAC Auto Sales. TAC stands for Trucks, ATV's and Cars. The next step is to meet with the accountant to discuss tax options and all those fun things that I don't understand.
Its pretty exciting. This is something that Rob has wanted to do for a long time and I'm glad that its finally working. He's been working alot of evenings, and alot of Saturdays, but I guess thats what happens when you start something new. He only starts work at 9:00 in the morning, so at least Caden gets to spend some time with him in the morning.
Anyway, just thought I'd fill you all in on this new journey we are on at the moment. Hoping and Praying that this all works out.
Keep Rob in mind next time you're looking for a used vehicle.
