Ok, I know I could have made this a poll but I choose not to because I dont like people who vote and not post what they think and why they voted for that particular thing.

So here is what I need help with. I have been volunteering with a non-profit/profit organization for about 3 years now. The organization is Computers 2 Kids or C2K for short. What they do is build and refurbish old PC's and things that are donated to them to give to family's in need. From what I can tell there funded by the government in some of the things that they do. Well about a year or so ago someone found out where there main address was and decided to donate without telling them. they woke up one morning to find old unusable pc's on there doorstep. In all the recycling bill to take care of them was about $5000 bucks which in turn created a chain reaction that led to them filing bankrupt. They wanted to keep on working for another month but in turn of that more bad luck came for them. Someone broke into there office and stole around $15,000 to $20,000 worth of stuff, Including computers that were ready to be shipped out, parts, and the stuff that costed the most, there main few pc's that had all of the info that they had, which when you add the software and such that was on them it came out to a pretty penny.

It's been almost a year since then and there finally out of debt all the way. They want C2K to get back into business and be as good as it used to be. which was shipping out about 5-10 computers a day. But the problem with that is that they cant really do that because the owners Jerry and Jodi are moving in about six months. The solution that they came up with though was to give the organization over to me.

They asked me this question about 2 days ago and it totally blew me out of the water. What the plan is is to get an office and then get everything started, then they will slowly start training me on how the system works and such, They will do this for about 6 or so months or when they move. And since we do PC sales and repair we will still be getting money besides from the grants and stuff from the government, One of the reason's they are asking this of me is because they know that me and Cody(Kaijin) are wanting to start our own PC repair business, and if I take this it will be the perfect opuritunity because they already have some permits and such that we might need in the future. Jodi the main owner said that she will stay in touch if we ever need anything.

But the main reason I made this thread is because I dont know if I should take this or not. Is it a good idea? or is it a bad?

I'm pretty sure, we've been over this. I think this is a great opportunity for you, and you definitly deserve it. Like I said before, I know you can handle this. Do what makes you happy.

I agree with Makura, this is a great opportunity for you to start your business with Cody and it's also a great cause. I know people that dream of something like this falling into their laps! You can handle it, they believe and trust you can... I say go for it.

Well it's almost final, We need to sell about 6 more computers and then we can get into an office. Once we have an office and such then the business will basically run itself. Jodi and Jerry suggested we make a blog about what we do for the next few months while they teach us everything, you know, something that we can use as a reference when we need it, Me and Cody will be the CEO's of the company while Jodi will stay and become the President of the board, they decided to stay for a year instead of 6 months so that will help us out more if we need anything

if you want to know more about the computers we are selling please go and click on the link provided in my last post in this thread, I will probobly soon put the link in my signiture but not until I can get a good Banner and such.
