its been about a month since i quit my job. i get calls every week, i have a little worked lined up each week and this will keep me busy until mowing season starts. I picked up the extra accounts i needed to make up the difference of what i need to help out with my wifes income. and i still got around 13k saved up for emergency funds, with truck and all equipment i need paid for! Its been boring overall, waiting for things to pick up.. but everything is falling in to place.
i made one mistake last week and underbid on a brush removal job, i ended up going home beat up and tired with 5 bucks for working 5 hours, yes like 1 dollar per hour. this doesn't usually happen to me either, but there was some confusion about dumping fees, instead of $10 a ton, i got charged a flat rate per load because i had "yard waste" that had to go to a seperate area.. so after my dump fees, gas and day care expense for my son for the day.. i had about 5 bucks! i got me two beers and called it a learning experience. other than that, i've gotten some good paying little jobs to tie me over till mowing season starts and keep me from raiding the savings to much..
