If the price was right id sell in a heart beat. After 10 years in this business im bored, frustrated tired of doing the same thing day in and day out. Would have to be a very nice chunk of change though

I wouldn't sell. No question. Some things in life just don't have a price tag on them. I enjoy what I do. To me, everyday is a blessing. Money can't give me that. Its being happy with my situation. I wake up everyday not thinking I'm going to work, I'm doing what I love. My own boss, making things grow, dealing with people and playing with equipment. I'm satisfied with my decision to be in this industry.

Yes if done correctly, It was all the realestate,The accounts and all equipment. Plus i had money from a body shop i owned. I will be semi retired but i must walk behind a mower or EXERCISE to keep from getting fat again. Don;t stop smoking it will KILL you. Also i've done this for i think 10 years.

John,
you are always posting those dang pictures. Knock it off, you are making me want to go on a cruise or move down south or something.

(or become your best friend )

If the money were right I would sell.....for cash only not payments. My business already kinda runs itself...so I'm actually getting payments as it is! And a paycheck.

But...I have other interests and would like to try something else...don't know what so don't ask.....but the money would have to be pretty good as I am gleaning pretty good money annually with very llittle input from myself other than sitting in office at pond answering phone...etc.
