But wouldn’t starting your own, independent windshield repair business be a much better story? If you like stories of heroic failure, then yes, probably. People often want to completely own their windshield repair business because they want to keep 100% of the profits. But 100% of zero is still zero and that’s what many independent windshield repair business owners are left with. Actually it’s worse than that because they are usually left with less than zero in the form of heavy debt. Think about it: windshield repair is a service you provide on people’s automobiles which are very important items. People won’t trust them to complete strangers and if they don’t know you, you probably won’t get their business.
