    I am an irrigator in the Collin county area. I started my business last year. I am thinking about putting someone in a truck full-time, but am nervous about it. I have always been a "do it myself so that I know it is done right" kind of guy. With the economy the way it is, have any of you had to let go of some good hands recently? I know that I am asking a lot, but I am not just willing to trust my company/customers to just anyone.

    trust just takes time with anyone. Why don't you work with them full time for the first few months? And then periodically afterwords. Make Sure they do it your way!

    This is a part time business for me. I am looking at making the leap to full-time (with an employee in the van). My plan is for me to continue my other full-time job.

    There's some looney tune from D/FW that might be of a consultating help, but otherwise, you gotta learn the trade, make the mistakes. Then you can train someone. Honestly, I doubt you know what "my way" is yet.

    The other Texans have not weighed in yet. Do you have a TX Lic. for irrigation?

    Pretty presumptuous, don't you think. Yes, I do hold a LI number in Texas. Thanks for your concern.

    Hey I wasn't being a d*** about it. Just asking. Most the Texas guys won't bother with you if you don't have one.

    Fooled me, try to be a little more informative as to your past when you post.

    Will you be in the truck or van?
