A buddy and I have been kicking around a business idea for the last 3 years or so. Buying houses, fixing them up, and then selling them. We pump eachother up about this GREAT business idea we have and then it kind of sizzles out. Honeslty just talking about it and getting excited about what our letterhead would look like, funny hats we would make, shirts, business cards, and registering our name as "lemonHOUSE". I just get a big grin on my face everytime I think about it.

Well this year we have actually done a little more work then just making 1-2 phone calls. We have really picked up steam this year. So far we have talked to 2 realtors, been to a conference, getting a line of credit and getting pre-approved for 600,000 dollars, researching contractors, visiting hardware stores to get estimates, met with one of our students parents who do this for a living, and yes have even made a first attempt at out letterhead. So far what we have done this yeat would be good enough for me to entertain this dream of ours? Although tomorrow we have a lunch date with our realator to discuss properties, contracts, and to share in our excitement. Is this really going to happen.

Over the next month or so we will find out if this will be a refreshing drink of profits or another bitter year for LemonHOUSE.
