I am debating if I sould outsource or not completely. I have all the equipment and I am working a full time job still while trying to grow my business. I have a pretty good inventory of cores and supplies
to fill some popular cartridges that my existing customers use but as I get new ones they use items I do not have supplies
for and I keep adding to my SKU's . I sit back and start thinking about as I make money I use it to buy more parts I did not have before and between ink, chips
, boxes, etc.... then the shipping for all these items and the time it takes to reman them wondering if outsourcing is the answer.
I feel that if I outsource I will be loosing touch with what is going on in the cartridge arena. Then I ask myself what to do with all the equipment I bought. I am doing this all my self and trying to find time to go to work, place orders for the items I need, reman the cartridges and get them out, taking care of the books and everything else it is killing me. I would love to quit my full time job and grow this thing like I know I can. But the wife is scared so I have to give something up but not sure how I should do this. Was thinking of maybe just outsourcing some stuff this way it wont be such a burdeon for me to try to fit everything in. Anyone else face this issue? I am pretty new started out in Nov 08 and doing this right out of my house. I only deal with business accounts so they could care less where I produce the products as long as the save money. Also I have spoken with a CW owner in my town and he said his is just breaking even with the rent, royalties and everything else he has to pay for so I thought that running out of the house would really keep my overhead low.
