Well it has been a rough year so far. Started well, and I was so busy I Golden't keep up (solo). Bought a new trailer, and then things started downhill. Lost some accounts because of price in June. Another profitable client recently placed their house on the market. Hurt my back. Coil went out on the Z. Rain, rain and more rain made scheduling a pain. Had some problems with my right foot that made walking painful. All in all, I was in a funk. Yesterday afternoon as I was finishing my last yard I remembered why I do this. I get to work in God's wonderful outdoors doing something I enjoy (well, most of the time) and something I take pride in doing well. I'm not cooped up in a cubicell (not a spelling error), I get exercise for free rather than paying to join a gym, and I get alot of satisfaction from running a business. Not to mention that a cold beer tastes so much better when you're tired and hot. So now I'm out of my funk. I've stopped feeling sorry for myself and am back on top. So why do some of ya'll do this?
