Ok. I have got it out in the open that I am getting my mowing business up and running. As a former mid size company owner, I do understand the employers side of things. But I never held any of my guys back from bettering themselves. As I spoke with my boss he asked why I felt the need to work on the side. My response was simple (remember this guy is also on a friend basis as well): I asked him if hischildren got cars when the turned 16 yrs old, and did they get to college with his help? his answer was yes. My response was; "my two daughters didn't get a car and they obtained college on their own dime well one of them did any way. My 12 yr old son I want to try and do better for him, Im tired of telling him no! He took it well and he knows my work ethic, he knows I love designing and building cabinetry so all is good.
