    Is this a typo???

    If so, oops....

    Is this a troll??

    If so, we really don't need that here....

    Is this you stating your orientation???

    If so, I guess I'm happy for you.

    As far as quitting your full time job, good for you.

    Just don't ever look back, especially the first 3-4 years.

    If you've already got equipment, even if it's paid for, make sure about 20% of each yard you do goes into an account for new equipment.

    This way you'll always have money to pay for it.

    It's not so bad now, since most companies are offering 0% interest for 2-3 years, but it's still nice to write that check for something.

    LwnmwrMan22 must be pretty quick on the draw. Could've been a typo and LwnmwrMan22 saw it before it got edited. Just a guess.

    My bad... you're right... it was edited....

    Anyways, good luck to you Zima...

    It's always a different feeling to go out on your own.

    The worst part is going to be year to year, wondering if you'll get everyone back, especially if you've gone and bought stuff on credit, so your life is on the line.

    Again, sorry for being quick :hammerhead: .... good luck....
