Theres 14 to 16 yearolds on here all the time, sometimes I even learn from them.

Reality is for someone to pay employees 50k per year they would have to be able to produce 150k to 200k per year, And with taxes going up on 250K earners that number will likley go up.

For me solo is the only way to go.
