What part of NC you from? Its been fairly decent this year even with the fact that every truck/minivan/car is pulling a trailer with a Lowes bought Z on it. Still beating the Craigslist 20 buck crowd by providing top quality service.
Id say if its part time try it, otherwise, I wouldn't drop a full time job to start now. Will still be hard to grab a share of the market starting late and missing out on the early spring contract grabfest. Good luck.
