After reading every post in this entire thread I just wanted to say...
You are a very blessed man. Your parents did a great job teaching you how to be a man/businessman. Your education has obviously helped you tremendously. I believe that God has his hand on you as well.
You seem driven and very well organized. You must have a great sense of cost vs. what you can sell jobs for in order to do these jobs and make enough $$ to pay off all the equipment you have. It takes a certain level of intelligence AND sheer guts to do jobs on this level.
You must also have great skills with hiring and managing people.
Your finished work looks fantastic.
I only wish that after 8 years of doing this I was at your level.
Your attitude is fantastic as well. There were a few times when folks came into this thread and said some pretty useless things and you responded with tact showing again how positive you are. Good job.
I have great respect for you as a young man.
Can I come intern for you?
Thanks for the employee manual. I've changed a few things to make it my own but other than that I pretty much stole it. You did a fantastic job on it.
I'm envious and jealous of your success and accomplishments, I need to go pray.
Thank you for this thread. It's motivated me.
I'm proud of you.
