    Del Vito - as far as experience, it is helpful to have some knowledge in a trade (plumbing, electrical, hvac...) but it is not required. The difficult part about getting business is having realtors provide buyers with your info. As a buyer, if you don't know of an inspector personally, then the realtors can give buyers a few they are familiar with Then the buyer calls and gets a price and a feel for each inspector.

    I won't ruin this thread any further.
    I don't drink the Kool-Aid. I don't even really do CrossFit anymore; I've moved on to hybrid programs better suited to my needs as a firefighter.

    You're absolutely right. CrossFit has sold out and become a caricature of itself, and Greg Glassman and Dave Castro are complete dingbats.

    However, there are hybrid programs that work very well. In fact, there are many successful gyms that have used the CrossFit name to drive traffic, and run their own specific type of program. Usually something with a heavy focus on strength, with a mix of effective metabolic conditioning. Many are seeing a great deal of success using this model.

    My comment about opening a gym was more or less a tongue in cheek rave on how hot CrossFit chicks are.

    I'm not sure what retarded d-bag response you're going to come up with next...but it will at least be mildly entertaining to watch you fumble with your words.

    sachese1, I am sure prior contracting inexperince is helpful when working toward becoming a home inspector, but is it necessary? If took a course an got licenced, do you think that would be enough to start?

    powerhourcoug, when you say "Get your CrossFit Level 1" what does that intail? Is it a personal trainer course?
    It's a trainer course for CrossFit - a prerequisite to opening your own gym. A well administered gym can be a good source of money. Do you CrossFit?

    So I say crossfit box ownership isn't viable for someone in this guys case and you get upset.

    I then explain myself which isn't an attack on you nor the program itself and you agree, yet still are upset.....

    And I'm the one whose childish? Whatever kiddo.


    Good luck to op in whatever business venture you choose.

    Teach First aid and CPR. You can use the skills you know best and set your own schedule. You have instant credibility just walking in the door as a firefighter or paramedic. You can set you own schedule and the money is really good. Check out EMSSafety.com

    Upon second thought, your ego is too fragile to hear anything that doesn't kiss your *** so I'll remove it. Good luck in life.

    Thanks for the respite simpleton...I was in the fetal position (assuming your country #ss knows what that is...if not...google it) weeping and and your gracious edit rescued me from the abyss...your rough around the edges internet tough guy routine has awakened me to my apparent lack of ego stability.

    I'll be certain to think twice about future interactions on these boards when you're lurking, in an effort to protect my fragile paradigm.

    I said I don't back CrossFit...but CrossFit is growing. Period. A VERY viable business model in the hands of a capable entrepreneur. Low overhead, high cash flow (do you know what cash flow is?), and opportune expansion opportunities.

    Howl all you want you silly rube...but anyone beyond a 10th grade reading level (i.e. anyone living outside Louisiana) can read between the lines and know you've being plain retarded and that you need to put your little squirrel d#ck back in your filthy little pants...

    Keep bringing your pathetic little barbs...I've got plenty of time...

    All that time and this is all you could come up with? Come on, try again and put some effort into it.
