To each their own opinion.....I have about 300 operation hours on heavy duty equipment, and each time I get more excited......The point of turning something into nothing always gets more hot and ready to go....lol....I still get up for mowing lawns.....and I have god know how many hours under my belt. I guess by the time it gets old with me, I will be down in Miami becoming a beach bum and allowing my GM to run the day to day operations....But until then, I get excited everytime hopping in the cab to create someones dream.....Even today, went by a site we are working on and did about 5 hours of grading.....didnt have to, but just love what I do...by the time we are done with this project, I will well over a thousand hours and I am sure I will still be ready to rock and roll when its time for the next project.....JMO....

Nope I haven't done what you have claimed to accomplish by age 21 because I was busy getting a college degree. Now at age 25 I have a family and am building my business slowly with a very stable customer base.

Thanks for asking.

Congrads. Different strokes for different fokes. College is good for some people but not for others.


I hate to argue with people. I get along with almost everyone i meet. Lets face it, you know nothing about me, my company, the quality of work i do, or the volume of work i do. So i really do not understand why you are trying to start proablems with me. If you want to know more about my company just PM me. I'd be happy to tell you anything you want to know. Instead of laughing at the fact that i just have 1 truck, you should be asking me how i am able to accomplish the jobs that i do with ONLY a pickup truck.

The main reason i come to this site is because i am very passionate about what i do. My business is basicly my life. I do not have any hobbies or many friends. I really enjoy talking to other landscapers since no one but another landscaper can really understand what we go through each say. Most of all i come here to learn a few new things and help out someone who may be less experienced then me. It was only 2 years ago when i thought a 10,000 job was huge.


I am not here to pick fights or argue. If anyone has any proablems with me or wants to confront me about anything please PM me. Lets keep the forum clean and not high jack threads.

Matt

Truck looks great. Saw your Hokies whoop up on Ohio. How about that freshman QB Taylor?! We'll see him in the NFL in a few years.

Hokie fans reminded me of Yankee fans......booing your own folk when he was taken out to let Glennon play. Felt bad for the guy but there is only one goal, WIN. Yes, Taylor is awsome and I can't wait to see what he will be doing the more comfortable he gets.

-Yankee fans often boo Yankee players when they screw up.....
