    Got a little burnt out last year, mostly bad help, but I don't know why, maybe the last few days of warm weather had something to do with it, but I'm in the mood to get moving. Getting ready to order door hangers, clean up equipment, new truck w/dump will be ready early next week. I guess its about that time for those who are serious and want to thrive. I'm going to start putting hangers on after valentines day and won't stop until I run out (5,000;30 customers or mid-April). Will stagger 500-1000 per week and hit some of the nighborhoods I'm in twice. Others feel the same or still enjoying the time off. Not me, I got a long list of goals to meet and an even longer list of toys :).

    I know it is hard to do and I am ready to start but soon enough we will be complaining about the lack of free time. Enjoy it while you can.
