Yeah. My wife and I are in the process of starting a family as well. We are all just human, we work hard during the day to make our bones, and gotta attend to the flock when we come home.

A lot of people don't understand that on here. They work 7 days a week 90 hours a week and don't "have time" for anything else

finding the balance between your commitments and other parts of life, only your conscious is the guide.

We got an nice comraderie on lawnsite...we need to unionize lawn care so we never have to drop our gates for less than $40 a lawn! Let's organize this!
I would love to get the minimum rate up around here. Im pushing upwards of $35 for a 15-20 min lawn and I still see guys around here advertising $25-$30. Everyone says Im high.

Just my two cents, but maybe consider hiring some help. Even one reliable part time guy that you could call in to help you out. This would take some of the work stress off of you and help out a LOT I would think. Just a thought. Good luck - a LOT of us struggle with this issue.....

True. Gotta keep things in perspective. We only spend so much time on this earth. My business is my baby, but my family is my family and have my back... They are my people.
