    I am not a failure and I am going to prove it. That's what I'm hoping at least. Supposedly, I don't have the skills to work at the family business. My family runs a nail shop and they don't think I have what it takes to be a nail technician. I just want to prove to them that I have what it takes. I will be saving up for classes and hopefully get a nail tech license. I hope to rub it in their face when I get it. After that, I can get on with my life.

    (Oops, this was suppose to be in the breakroom thread. I'm sorry)

    I wish I was a girl because my mom always wanted a daughter.

    Well Dragon, if you put your mind to it, you can do anything... Who cares if your faminly thinks you can;t, go out and prove them wrong. That type of motivation usually gets good results (well, unless your Evil Kenieval's son or something lol)

    Good luck

    The best paypack is to be their competition LOL.

    Around here (MO) you can get a nail tech license in 3 months. I did the math, and a good/busy nail tech can make around $60k a year! Pretty good for a $2500 degree!

    Yes that would be a good pay back. Open a shop across the street from them. lol. I am going to work hard at and try to earn that license. I just want to thank you all too. Discounts for all Auction Sighting members if I get my license!

    I am from Cleveland Ohio. I was thinking about contacting the Discovery Channel or ABC because they both have shows that covers family owned business. Example: American Chopper and Las Vegas Garden of Love. Maybe that will get my family to let me work for them unless they want to fire me on t.v just to embarass me. lol

    I always get my nails done by a guy named Brian. He does an awesome job and he's the only one who speaks English in the shop!

    Go for it, Dragon!

    I get to work at the shop today. Will be going there shortly. I will be doing what Mikey at American Choppers does. Answer phone calls, help customers when they walk in those doors and do some cleaning. If I want to work at the shop, I have to start somewhere right? I managed to talk things over with them and settled it in a peaceful manner and they said they will help me get a license. That's what family is all about. Now I have to save up for classes. I just acquired a domain name ( and not sure if I should put it on ebay. If I do, it should help me pay for classes.
