Kinda a sad day today, I found out that my best employee (one that has been with me now for 2 years) is moving at the end of the month. He is the type that can do everything that I can, almost as good. Also the type that I can trust with all of my equipment on his own, and wouldn't be afraid to let him run the business if I were sick or on vacation. Anyway... how many of you have employees that you can trust to do things like that?

I had a guy like that for 2 1/2 years. Too bad I let him go when I downsized

yup when I hired people (actually only one person right now) back on this year, I was thinking to myself, " I will never find someone that worked like him ever again."
