I have had an interest in turf since 1977 thought here have been long periods where it was not my main gig. Turf school grad 1981. I have no employees now and hope to keeping that way.
Have had several businesses over past 30 years w/some overlap
Retail music 10 yrs
Concert promotion and artist management about 9 years
Licensed residential builder specializing in insurance repair work and rental housing lot of that time - many years
Some successful, some fun, some both, some neither.
Some more fun, others more successful
