I would stay at home forever just lock the parents in the basement and collect their mail. j/k I am 24 and have a house payment 2 supply yard lot payments 2 machine payments 2 truck payments and I can't keep up with all the insurance it really sucks. I wonder sometimes if it is even worth it especially around this time of year when I do my taxes. My friends and siblings are still in school becoming doctors, pharmacist, and vets and I work 24/7 while they go on spring break and such. Some my envy owning your own business I did too. But now that I am up there competing with some of my friends dads in business and have employees it is hard to keep it all rolling. And I know what you mean about peoples comments I have my share of haters they can't wait to see me fail. I just tell everyone I am an employee and I don't have to listen to that but your so young bs.
