BISMARCK, N.D. - Being an entrepreneur is a big risk, but Shawn Schmidt of Bismarck Remodeling and Cabinetry says it's worth it.
Schmidt says the most difficult thing about owning your own business is filling out all the paperwork. However, he says signing countless documents is worth the trouble.
After 16 years of having a steady job, Shawn Schmidt decided he could cut it on his own.
"I saw that there was a business opportunity for this type of service in Bismarck, and it also affords me the opportunity to do something I enjoy doing," says Shawn Schmidt, owner of Bismarck Remodeling and Cabinetry.
It's Schmidt's first year doing this full time, and he says he loves every measure and every cut.
"It doesn't feel like work in the morning when you get up and you get to go do something you enjoy doing," said Schmidt.
He also says there are risks to owning your own business.
"Make sure you've planned it through. Think of things like insurance, licensing. If you've talked to the Secretary of State, they have lots of guidelines," said Schmidt.
Schmidt makes and remodels anything from bathrooms to home furniture and is happy doing it on his own.
