    Hey guys sorry for not updating over the last yearor so. I had a lot going on. I got sick with lymes disease, had a friend/ co-worker pass away, and had a bunch of other things going on, which made me not able to focus on work as much. And with the amount of hours I was putting in I started really burning myself out.

    I made the ultimate decision to sell my business and take a break from 80-100 hour weeks for a while. I was a tough decision because I put a lot of hard work in over the last 5 years to get my business to where it was.

    I will put up some quick shots of some of our projects from this past year or so as soon as I get a second.

    I have decided to take a project manager position at Earth Turf and Wood and I will be moving out there soon to team up with Jarod and crew to continue doing what I love and still have a healthy balance of down time. I'm really looking foward to the opportunity ahead of me.

    Sorry to hear about your friend passing away. How are you making out with the lyme disease? Did you end up selling your business in the beginning of the season?

    Congrats on the job with Earth, Turf, and Wood. By his posts you can see he runs a top notch company that is very successful. Many people here look up to him and his team and what they do. He is very lucky to be able have a guy like yourself to be part of his team. I am sure you will excel with his company. Good luck with everything and dont forget to post pictures.

    Sad to here about the negative things that have happened, I hope things are starting to turn around. Maybe working at ET&W will help with that! Hope all is well.

    Sorry about your loss. And congrats on the new job. I've been in the same dilemma myself for a while. Owning your own business can be great, but the amount of time you need to pit into it to be successful can be very hard on you. It's a hard decision to sell or get out when you have spent a good portion of your life building your business.
