If you consider yourself an entrepreneur and are interested in starting a laser engraving/cutting business, there are several questions to ask yourself and other factors to keep in mind:

Why do you want to start your own business? 

  • You want to be your own boss. 
  • You want financial independence.
  • You want creative freedom. 
  • You want to fully use your skills and knowledge. 

Which type of business is right for you: 

  • What do I like to do with my time? 
  • What technical skills have I learned or developed? 
  • In what areas do others say I excel? 
  • How much time do I have to run a successful business? 
  • Do I have any hobbies or interests that are marketable?
