I got written proposals from 2 companies to blow it in for $58/yard.. at 10 yds that's $580... Why would you guys who offer to do it for $900 or $850?

How old are you? are you really ready to start over? sometimes dealing with a boss is better than taxes, insurance, registration, lazy demanding backstabbing employees, PITA cheap customers etc, etc. not to burst your bubble, but maybe look at your options. if you have 20 years experience you should be able to find a company to work for that will give you the pay you want and let you run a crew and leave you alone, especially if you can speak spanish.
