Some cool starting own business images:

I'm working on a tee-shirt design for one of my favourite peoples on the Internet. It's nice, graphic design. I don't know why I stopped doing it.
Oh wait, yes I do. A terrible experience with a terrible employer. Still, having an in-house design gig in a boutique was pretty sweet for a 21 year old. Maybe I should try it again.
Oh wait, I never stopped. I own my own business. Two businesses, actually. Right... I should do something with those. Get off my gamer ass and create.
Oh wait, I have been. Last year might have sucked, but I did put some wonderful things into play. Conceived some fabulous new ideas. I'm looking forward to reaping the benefits of that in the year of the ox. And then going the next step.
I started my own business(es) so that I could work for myself, hold my own hours. And because nobody seemed to understand what I could do for them, if they would just let me. Now I have two and I don't do for myself. I must work on changing that.
Live for myself. That's goal numero uno for MMIX. But it's not my nature. Thus, conflict.

1965 Goldenrod Land Speed Race Car
Image by The Henry Ford
Description: In November 1965 this sleek car flashed across Utah's Bonneville salt flats to break the world speed record for wheel driven (as opposed to jet or rocket powered) cars. One key to its success was its long, slim shape that minimized wind resistance. The other key was the clever engineering that packed four Chrysler "Hemi" engines and the machinery to drive all four wheels inside that slim shape. Goldenrod's record of 409.277 miles per hour stood until 1991. Builders Bob and Bill Summers were part of an automobile culture unique to Southern California. This culture spawned a "hot rod economy," made up of people who made their living building cars and equipment, promoting races, operating tracks, selling equipment and accessories, and writing about cars and events. Bob and Bill's success at Bonneville allowed them to become part of the hot rod economy by starting their own business building custom transmission and driveline parts. Engines: Four Chrysler "Hemi" V8s, overhead valves, 426 cu. in., 600hp each
Maker: Made by Bill and Bob Summers, Summers Brothers, Inc., in Ontario, California, with engines from the Chrysler Corporation.
