Just my two cents, it's sometimes better to find someone to help plannin...

So I get about a 30 to 35 days off a year, lots of flex time, and I work when I want to work. That ...

Its a great concept for a side job/creating passive income. It would most likely take years to start seeing benenfits. I would just charge a fee up front.
However, odds are the operating aggreement would be the key here. Would you be voting - most likely not, so as a minority owner you would hav...
