I've had my business going on 14 years now and I still love what I do. Although having a family and house eat those profits up fast! Not like the ol' days of being single and living in a tent with this business. Plus that the cost of living in general is at least triple from those times. I feel the stress mainly in the spring months when money is the tightest. You have to spend the operating costs plus pay the bills and then wait to bill all the work and then wait some more for the payment. By the time you get paid, that money is spent and you re back to zero. It usually takes a couple months to get the cash flowing again to feel comfortable. It takes lots and lots and lots of patience. You have to take the good with the bad and keep going to work everyday and it seems the customers just flow right in. Good luck.
