    I got things sorted out from last weeks bomb shell, long story short, my brother is extremely competitive and he has a controlling nature, we got the issues at hand resolved (for now) but things have changed, no pictures/video anymore, only my content for now on in and no more setting up a YouTube account for quite a long time.

    My brother made every possible effort to get my video's removed and he highlighted every bad comment and problematic video and made them sound 10 times worse to my parents who had the ultimate say in what happens.
    I did however get him to remove all my pictures from his site.

    I then told both of my parents and my bother to stay the f**k out of my personal life, what I do after work is none of their business, I do not converse and associate myself with people who have questionable back grounds (drugs, gangs, violence or Deere skidsteer owners) and I would rather make a bunch of friends in this business rather than enemies like my brother does.

    I am going to stick it out as long as I can with my business, if I go on my own, I am now the competition, and God knows how much work was stolen from me by my brother, so like the old saying goes, "if you can't beat them, join them", or in this case, stay with them.
    Only God knows what the future holds for our line of work, so I just have to trust him.

    I also love my F450 now, dual straight pipes makes good trouble for the establishment. :laugh:

    I know how hard it can be to work with the family. Me and my dad have had our battles but you just gotta keep on keeping on and thank the good lord above for the air in your lungs and the shoes on your feet. Hey It could always be worse man.
