Well, it is that time of the year where I shut-r-down for 3 weeks. I have always done this to prepare for next Feburary. I turn off the phones, and let the contractors I work for know that it had better be a good dang reason to call me. I set up some "moonlighting" jobs for my guys so that they still have some income also. All outstanding invoices have been paid. I dont owe anyone anything. All equipment has been serviced/winterized. New equipment purchases have been made from other companies going belly up. Business bank account has the money to kick start advert, start-up trucks/equip, 2 months payroll, and the shtf back up. Anyone else do this? If not... what drugs are you on to stay sane?
