Love to hear stories like that Ben! Sounds like you have some really good instincts. You are around that $250K area and many times that can be a tough hump to get over on your way to the next level. Many contractors get very frustrated and stay at that level for a long time. If you ever need any advice or help with anything, don't hesitate to ask.

Good luck and congratulations on all of your hard work and perseverance.
