BX, I'm curious.
I've a photography studio and recently opened a lounge earlier this year. I haven't worked a 9-5 in years.

What types of businesses do yall have?

With ties in three different businesses why not leave the day job?

I just started this november my auto shop, 1st month was decent going into 2nd month fu*king tough without any advertising just getting friends and families and word of mouth right now. I'm trying to get into auctions so I can buy low mileage cars for cheap and fix them and sell em. I found my first car will see if I can get my hands on it.

Generating revenue. I'm still researching but besides cigar sales that's the only revenue. I would like to get a liquor license but a BYOB cigar spot from what I've seen is nice. Fayetteville, NC is not luxury enough like ATL to have a cigar lounge to be serving food, live music, and etc. Still in the research process....

In a place like Fayettnam, you might want to focus on Tobacco. That way you can service a decent client base (blunts, cigs, pipes, bongs, etc), and slip some cigar sells in there as well. But as you mentioned, Fayetteville is not a luxury town. You'll only be able to take things up to a certain point, without wasting money. Most Fayetville cats aren't about elegance. If you were in Raleigh or Charlotte, it would be another story. Even Cary.
Don't be so hard set on an idea that you force yourself into a horrible situation. I used to go with my boy to a BYOB cigar spot a few years ago. It was in an affluent area but they still went out of business maybe a year ago

Flying by the seat of my pants doing digital branding + tryna figure sh*t out. I might have to hit that reset button again. Sometimes I think I'm losing who I am. It's a struggle.

I remember you made a thread about how things were going with you and your business(s). can you post that link and give an update? sh*t inst going to well at my job and its time i stop begging corporate companys to promote and hire me. I remember drawing inspiration from when i read your thread initially. I think it was about how you bounced back after your cafe or food place you had.

goood luck with that but selling cigars wont pay your rent...you need different avenues of generating money like u said serving food etc...otherwise my advice would be dont do it. But keep trying!!
