I find myself in an interesting, intriguing position. I am starting my own company, while still having the ability to hold my current position in my company. I am in the process of meeting with my attorney and tax guy, getting incorporated, and executing my strategy.
It is something I have been thinking about for a long time, and because I can do both to start, I won't have too much risk on my hands... I can give it a couple of years and see what happens... Any business owners out there have any advice?
Thanks!

I have entered an agreement with a product manufacturer, and I will be their sales and marketing arm. I will be selling their products to big box retailers (Home Depot/Lowe's/Walmart etc)
So basically, I will act as a manufacturer's representative starting with these products, and hopefully adding others over time...

That's correct Red Hot One, once orders are placed, they will be direct shipped from the manufacturer. They are merely paying me to break down some walls, and get their products on the shelf.
I am also working with a couple other companies who are looking for representation, but the negoitations take a long time.
