Become your own boss. This step is not for everyone. There are plenty of risks, but even more rewards. You’ve got to be ready for the pressure and the stress of meeting a payroll, being responsible for a team of skilled people, taking on projects, and meeting deadlines. If running your own company is something you’re ready to do, you’ll find the sheet metal industry to be a challenging, growing, and potentially rewarding field. Even though you may be competing with many of the men and women you’ve worked with over the years, you will find they’re ready and willing to work with you to help you find the resources you need to get established. You will find your ITI training an invaluable resource not only in understanding how a job gets done, but also in how our industry can add value for the entire community.
