I worked for a machine tool builder for 28 years till last summer. I left and went with a smaller company in similar bisiness as their VP of sales. However yesterday I made the decision to go off on my own as a rep for this company instead of being a direct employee. I also have an enormous opportunity to sell the other machine tool lines directly that I've work closely with. Two machine lines even go with me versus the current company. It's a bit scary without a small salary but I felt it was time. The payback will be huge as I have many customers that have followed me and will again. Wish me luck.
