I just finished another leaf job, it took 3.5 hours and I made $300. I remember when it took a 40 hour week to make that after taxes, working for someone else. When I feel burnt out and think that I need a break, I remember those (not so) good old days of working for someone else. Running my own business makes me thankfull every day, even when it is a headache. Good luck, to all in 2004.
