Paintball Blog
Welcome at » 2012 » July

Starting a paintball field or paintball business is the dream of most you reading this blog. Don’t let it turn into a nightmare! It’s a fact that over 50% of paintball fields close because they make too much money! You heard it correctly, making too much money is often worse than not making enough.

Most paintball field owners start small ( size & money is relative but in this case we are talking under $100,000 USD. )  These new paintball business owners typically keep their day job and work the field on weekends. They go from making $2,800 a month to $30,000 a month and simply blow a fuse. Just look at all the lottery winners and pro athletes that do the same thing.

Another common mistake new paintball field owners make is, they get the “urge to splurge.” One field owner in Los Angeles used to take his $5,000 or $10,000 he made that day in cash and walk straight into his favorite strip club. Would it surprise you if I told you he is no longer in business. Other paintball business owners have a big weekend and splurge on a new car. They figure a $2,000 a monthly lease payment is nothing when they made $10,000 last weekend. But then they get a few rainy weekends or the weather suddenly turns cold, now that $2,000 lease payment becomes a burden.

The main solution is to save then spend! There is nothing wrong with splurging! Just splurge after you have 6 months operating capitol ( INCLUDING PAYING YOURSELF) before you go buy something big. You will be glad you did.
