My little gold mine got picked up by everyone. Last year it was name my price his year it was less than half of last year. I just got sick of it.

We were doing 1500 in less than 3 stops everyday. Had one helper or ran solo sometimes. Materials were less than $150 for the day

Not too mention the insurance is likely 200$ per week.
If excellus is granted their proposed 17.3% increase next year in NY with my deductable and premiums next year it will cost me $524/week for family coverage before the insurance company spends a dime. The lying coomie care sure was a great deal wasn't it? Insurance is a huge nut now days.

Well I start Monday.

Took a job with old employer. Great benefits good hours. Hiring two people in spring to continue my business.

It's about 40 minutes from house, but the money is worth it. I have two regional managers fighting over me lol. There's a shop 10 minutes from my house and that manager is already trying to get me transferred down here. I haven't even started working yet lol
