    If your good as you say you are, why do you need to work for someone else?

    Dude just spilled his guts trying to make ends meet. If you can't help him out or be positive, then why say anything at all.

    As for you Firstclasslawn...good luck to ya.

    That is the most ignorant and inconsiderate reply. This guy is asking for help, not a handout or crazy comments like these! Help or keep it to yourself!

    Here is what you need to do. I don't know if your children stay with you fulltime. I think you said you have custody. If weekends not sure.

    But.. What you have to do is lower your overhead. From here on out don't buy anything that requires a note. Get rid of your notes if you can. Buy everything used.

    Second keep your business. Try and get an evening or night job. Try the airports, or the high school custodial, or janitorial, or hospital, or securtiy, police dispach. These jobs are ok because they carry benefits.

    Work your night job and cut during the day. Yes you will be tired but try to condense all your cutting for three to two days.

    Grind it out for two years to the point where you build up your clientele then go fulltime back to the business or continue.

    Save you money, be there for your children and you can make it work.

    I know because I did it. Yes it was hard, not being there for your family but i had to do what i had to do. Sometimes they don't understand:cry:

    Hopes this can help.:weightlifter:

    Good advice above. Try using craigslist to grab some jobs if you arent already.

    Also, you need to fix up your guestbook man. Set it so that you have to approve posts. You've got guys on there advertising cell phones, gay sex sites, diet pills, etc.

    Doesnt look too professional and might help you get a few more customers :)
