    I'd like to claim this as my own but it's what a friend of mine says when ask this question. It apples to me as well so I'm using it.

    Family responsibility's is what keeps me going. Other people depending on me has done more to motivate me than any thing else ever did when I was single. That and I need about $150.00 a week just for dog food or the dogs will eat me. LOL

    I like meeting all the different people I do proposals for and work for. I like seeing my employees provide for their families, and knowing I have a hand in it. I like putting all the components of a detailed install together. I like exceeding my client's expectations. I like being able to work for who I want to. I love what I do.

    That is what drives me every day in this business. Rarely do I dread getting out of bed in the morning.

    Freedom from the time clock I would say I had a job for almost fifteen years where I ran a cnc drill a heck of a lot easier than lco. I would rather do this any day of the week. I don't think it is something you learn it is bred in you from birth I've all ways wanted to work for myself

    Control, freedom and money....the ability to visualize selling other peoples time rather than my own.
