This blog is unique because it not only talks about the technical side of operating CNC Router tables but also discusses setting up a business with one. 

Starting a side business can be exciting and confusing at the same time. Knowing why you are motivated to create a business income with a CNC Router is the first step.

CNC Router tables may be the new tool of choice for woodworkers. Prices have dropped drastically in the past year and more and more people are buying them.  Having a CNC allows you to make many unique and specialized products specific to your location. The problem is that not many people understand how to operate them and fewer people still understand how to market their work.

I have been building, designing, programming  and operating CNC Router tables, privately and commercially for over 10 years. I want to share that knowledge and experience with you so you can get up and running quicker and with a definite purpose.

Let’s dispel with some myths and set realistic expectations before we go any deeper.

1. Generating income streams (including passive income streams ) is NOT easy and it takes a lot of hard work. Nothing in life comes easy. Making money with your CNC Router or online website is no different. I will never try to persuade you to think otherwise. People will tell you that you can sell trinkets and generate money. But the truth is generating money is not the same as generating a profit. I’m here to tell you the truth: Building a profitable online CNC business is hard. I’ll do my best to guide you and give you the information you need, but I can’t force you to take action; that’s up to you.

2. Generating an income does NOT happen overnight. I don't believe in get rich quick or teach it, that is not how I work. My first online business took a few years of hard work before it was generating enough income to pay for my equipment.  There was nothing easy about what I had to do to get that business going. But in relative terms, it was “quick”. I decided to take control of my life and work hard now so I don't have to defer my dreams.

3. Generating passive income is NOT impossible. Passive income was just a dream for me until 2010. That’s when I retired from my Civil Service job and chose to bet on myself. I decided to try to make my dream a reality. And you know what? The dream is coming true day by day and it’s totally amazing!
