I am. Adding employees next year and working on the weekend until then

I just don't have faith that its going to snow enough to get me through winter. And my health insurance expires next may. Plus I have a family now so that's a concern with insurance.

Are you on your parents insurance? If so I'm in the same boat. I work a second part time job for the benefits and a steady check until the business starts doing well enough that I can afford to lose a few clients and not starve.

My dad worked for the government and retired at 40 so he still had his benefits. They will cover both of us until were 25, so yes I am. I have Cigna insurance. My kid has state insurance for now. He was premature and spent 4 months in nicu so I'm not sure how that's going to factor in with getting him better insurance.
