For the past 15+ years I have been working a small auto body shop that I opened from scratch. This shop was located on the property that I live on and has grown to the point that there really is not enough room for the work that we do. On top of that, it is getting to be a hassle to have work at home for alot of reasons. For the past 2 years my wife and I have been working on a deal to purchase one of the largest collision shops in our area. Yesterday afternoon we closed on this business. We will be combining the two businesses and are now known as Bulldog Collision INC.

I am sitting here in my old office finishing up a few things before I have to drive to work for the first time in a long time. There are alot of changes coming up in our lives and to be honest, I am quite scared. I will post some pictures up soon.

My dad always told me as I was growing up, "You're never going to be successful without taking some risks." Congratulations!

Ryan, All the best of luck with your new venture/adventure! Getting out of ones comfort zone and making a significant life change can certainly be scary, but I'm sure this will offer you many new opportunities for success. Good luck to you, your wife and everyone involved!

Congratulations Ryan! I know what it feels like to jump off the deep end in business and I was always fortunate enough to make it work. Sometimes you'll wonder " what the $%^&* have I done!", but it will be worth the sleepless nights in the end. Best of luck!....Gary
