This business my family and I started in 1999 has just turned 20 which is a ripe old age for a cat, a ridiculous age for a dog, and just a great start on life for a forty pound lake trout.. I’m thankful for the many wonderful people I”ve been privileged to meet, the experiences I’ve actually been paid to have, and the possibilities for the future.
Now, Ive alway been “a bit” of an independent personality, and if i”m found some day to have succumbed to some awful accident because I thought I could do it myself, no one should wonder, and yet, “no one is an island” unless of course you are one.
And I have to stop and wonder what my business would have looked like without any customers. Pretty lame, I would think. So why not take it to the next level and involve a few people and see what this thing might grow into given half a chance.
There is an interesting business model wherein others are involved in the business, but without becoming active partners, owning a share of the business, or collecting a wage. It works in a little different manner, as in, providing your own equipment, finding your own customers and using the business as a base for your own operation, paying a percentage to the business itself as you perform your service for the customers.
Perhaps this is an avenue you or someone you know would like to walk with Nisutlin Outfitting because I am at the point in my career where I would be open to such an arrangement.
After all, it was way back in 1979 when a very young man was given such an opportunity in the city of Whitehorse, Yukon. And although, this was a wage position it opened a world of possibilities for me and i will always be thankful for the acceptance I received at the time. And perhaps its time to pay that forward, give up a bit of independance and control and see where the wind blows this ship.
I have some specific ideas in mind but, for obvious reasons, they will have to be shared on an individual basis with interested parties only. My apologies to the ridiculously overly curious.
