Why did you start your PC business? What makes you stay? I started my business to feed my PC habit. I'd been a long-time customer, hosting parties for 7 of the 9+ years I was a customer. It finally dawned on me that I'd save even more if I sold the stuff. I stayed because (1) I was able to turn it into an actual business, and (2) it helped me grow in ways I never imagined. I'm now comfortable in just about any setting with anyone from any level of society.
