In 2004, I decided to buy a bar.  I had no prior experience outside of being a patron of other bars.  I talked some relatives into helping me with the money and within 90 days, I was a bar owner.  I did everything wrong.  No beer license, no liquor license.  After some stumbling around at the city and county offices, I finally got the ball rolling.  I was lucky enough to find a liquor license that was for sale.  I was up and going by September 2004.  One problem - I did not know how to mix drinks.  But I kept going.  I finally realized that I was not cut out to run a bar so I re-evaluated.  I developed a plan to lease out my building and license to others who wanted a chance to 'own a bar'.  I am in my third year of leasing and am starting to see profit.  My profit will increase by March of 2013.  I am still learning.  I am trying to install a small kitchen.  I have all the state, city,and county requirements.  I'll post my lessons learned as I go along.
