I often see guys saying "I'm solo but I have a guy that helps me 2 days per wk" or "I'm a solo op, but me and 2 guys did this job..." etc. So I'm wanting input from anyone that's solo as in it's JUST you every day all day. Do you love it? Hate it? Just deal with it? I took the leap and quit my FT job as a cop this Spring. I'm paying myself weekly what I made for weekly base pay as a cop, so basically I'm just "losing" the OT pay that I always seemed to gather plenty of.... Yes it's true, cops really do work for peanuts lol. Suffice it to say, being a cop is a drag, or was for me anyway. I did it for 10 yrs and that was about 7 yrs too long. Once the new/exciting/"coolness" wears off, it'll sure change a person for the worse IMHO. Winter time this year will probably find me looking for some sort of a part time job just to pay the bills and stay outta my emergency funds, but we'll see. Part of my plan to do this included downsizing several aspects of my life, from vehicles/toys that I thought I needed to postponing the buying of a new house. I live in a house that I own free & clear that I inherited from my grandmother when she passed. It's smallish and in a neighborhood that's not the best in town (but not the worst either). My bills are now able to be totaled up using 3 digits instead of 4 for the first time in many many years, and let me say it feels GREAT. Right now it's just me. I'm nowhere near a full schedule (mow Tue-Thur roughly 6 hrs/day more or less, do non-mowing jobs on Mon when I have them & keep Fri open for rain outs but hit the lake early if weather allows it) but I'm already thinking it'd be nice to run another ad blitz and try to pump up things enough to justify having a helper. So what are the arguments for/against staying truly solo?
