    Most perfer the term "Turd Wrangler". Honestly, around here, those jobs are gold. Manual labor, science, legal, engineering. Operating a district in the mountain west take a really diversified skill set, is specialized (job protection), government benefits yet get left the fuck alone.

    That's consistent with low end VC expected returns.

    only idiots go into business for themselves
    don't be an idiot
    if I had a dollar for every moron who said "that must be so great being your own boss and having a business" I'd be fucking rich
    in the meantime
    well outside of the 60 hrs a week at work and realizing the world is full of assholes and dooshbags you'll figure it out some how
    at least you can get a bunch of money, fail, claim bankruptcy and move on
    nothing is as awesome as it sounds

    There is a carwash place in Helena that includes an indoor DIY dog-washing facility. Seems like a good way to generate income during the winter months. Lotsa dogs in Bozeman that's for sure.

    Good luck OP, I hope it works out for you.

    That may be about the dumbest thing I've ever read here and that's really saying something. Many people go into business for themselves and do quite well. I'm very happy I went into business for myself, albeit I bought an existing company that I was already working at for seventeen years. None the less, I bought it and sold it eleven years later and did very well. I also really enjoyed it when I was there during the whole time. I now work with people who have started their own businesses and are looking to scale them and sell them in the longer term. The vast majority of them continue to grow and build their companies with the idea that they too will someday sell and do quite well. It's not a stupid thing to do and they're certainly not idiots.

    I think Fred's taking more of an existential viewpoint on this one.
