    Is it me or are there other people that can't get their minds settled down about next year.

    It seems that next year is consuming my thoughts. I have trouble sleeping at nights some nights. I am constantly brainstorming, and trying to think of ways to improve my business. I seem to be more consumed with my business now then I was when I was working 10 - 12 hrs a day.:dizzy:

    Kinda like Hank Hill eats, sleeps, and breathes Propane and Propane Accessories.

    Many of us are thinking about how to get the Helll out of lawns.

    When you've been in this business as long as some or us here, you'll learn to chill out this time of the year and just relax

    I hear ya Albemarie. I have a unique opportunity. My wife and I sold our house and are currently living at my in-laws. We will be here over the winter and maybe even thru till next fall. Since I have the chance to enter my 2nd yr with little overhead I want to make the best of it. Being new to the industry (only going on 2nd yr) I still enjoy doing the work. I grew up working for my family digging graves and doing concrete work. As I got older I thought the corporate route was more for me. Got paid really well, but I really hated it. I want to make the best of this. I feel that I am off to a good start around 60 accounts. I guess it is the 2nd yr anticipation that is just making me dizzy.

    Rodfather- I am sure in time I will learn to chill out. I sure hope so(lol). I hope that it is soon I would like to sleep sometime before March:)

    PLMaint, Yeah would be nice to get a little snow. We don't get much here where I am located. A couple a counties over will get hammered and we will be lucky if we get 1"-3". Most of the time we just get flurries when others get snow.
