Since you have snow im guessing you are either in one of the mountain chains or up by the lakes. I would definitely wait until there was little to no snow on the ground.
Sadly, no other person is every going to work as hard as you do because it's your business and you get the most reward from it. Their is only a small group of people who will truly work hard for you and they are the ones who will then go on to start their own businesses. Im also told the "extreme southerners" work very hard for a small check but I don't care, i would shut down before I had them working for me.
