This year is kind my pre-startup year. I have purchased some equipment but I'm mostly building up to run full time with it next year. Even though I work about 55 hours a week at my day job I have been powerraking, mowing, edging, etc. on my days off and in the evenings. Two reasons for killing myself like this. First one is to make more money so I can buy more equipment and reason two is so I can start building a customer base for next year when I won't have my other income any more. I have had a fair amount of powerraking jobs and mowing jobs and the customers have been really pleased and are already calling me back for other services. Here is my problem. Every time I have to buy something I need to get jobs done my wife gives me some attitude over spending money on I'm guessing things she doesn't approve of. Yesterday my walkbehind mower was not picking the grass clippings very good and I'd been needing a new one for awhile so I went and got a Hydro drive Honda at Homedepot for $720. Now I had a great mower that would make me money and make my life easier in the process. Well when she saw that $720 was spent a mower she started laying it on about how am I going to make any money if I spend it all. I just about lost it. If there was ever time I could smack a women that would have been it but I just kept the rage inside and I'll probably have heart attack at 30 from this crap.
