    I started out solo mowing....saw some guys putting in a walk way and retaining wall and was in awwwww.....asked if they didnt mind me watching for a few hours and guys said sure no problem, cancelled the rest of my day and watched this guys go at it. Took a few locally offered classes, and also went to a few suppliers and asked about classes and was able to get in on a few classes. The easy part was learning how to build, but hardest part was learning how to price jobs......Started out small using lots of garden blocks and worked my way up as I gained experience. Its a never ending learning process, and I swear I learn something new every job. Fun thing, I had a guys yesterday ask me if he could watch us as we worked on finishing up this wall.....I smiled and told him hell nawh....lmao...just kidding I even let him help...nothing like free labor... :)
