This is exaclty what america was built on, an open market! Entrepreneurs are what make this country so great. Deff upgrade to a F-350 powerstroke, 6.0 liter turbo charge man. Then you can eat chevys and shit dodge(except cummins on occasions)!

I just don't understand how bounce houses make so much money in this crappy economy haha you must have some serious skills haha

you find it hard to believe, and i find it hard to believe you are 19 making 10k a month, but i dont think its impossible. young people can make just as much money as older people. they just have to be smart, and have great people skills and stay professional so older people take you seriously. the economy has taken its toll on the business, the original owner was making 100k plus the first 5 years, now its down to about 50k-60k a year, due to competition, and the lower prices per renal to keep up with the competition, but thats only on the weekends when we do business. also when you have alot of bouncers and equipment like i do, the money adds up. supply and demand man!

Gotcha if you have the right equipment and are marketable then ya it can happen I misunderstood the bouncer business but then again you would have to be in the right location as well. For me being affordable its been cranking in the business but I make about a 5k base then I get repairs and misc side jobs that add up quite a bit, especially any kind of tractor clean up work and bank repo jobs is where I make the money but I am very fortunate that I also don't have to pay for a lot of materials due to my family having a factory which gives me the majority of the tools and chemicals that I use. Definitely took a lot of time and effort which I'm sure yours did just the same, its good to see others getting creative and doing something other than a regular job forsure!

yeah i am in the perfect location, 90% of my customers are Hispanic ( no offense to any Hispanic forum members, but you guys throw the best parties lol!) and our town is about 60-70% Hispanic so it works out great. they always are really loyal customers and refer me to pretty much their whole party, and their families, which is like a branching effect because most of their families live here too, and i always stay and talk to everyone of my customers for at lest 10 mins after we are done loading up. its all about customer service and giving them what they want, to a certain point. by the way im white lol! i need to learn to speak Spanish, i forward the Spanish speaking callers to my buddy that works for me.
