With such an uncertain future in our nation I am seriously considering getting a degree so I have a backup plan if something falls through with my business. I'm currently planning to turn over all my maintenance work to a full time employee next year (end of year he will have a crew depending on how much work we get) while I pursue more irrigation, design/build type work. and a degree.
Bottom line, at the end of the day, if you walked away from the business, why would someone want to hire you? You might have a few licenses and such, and you might have a lot of head knowledge, but no piece of paper to back it. Many decent jobs are going to require a degree. For all those potential employers care, you are just a laborer. Thats basically been what I have been thinking through, hope it helps you.
Mike
