    "Someday, someone is going to write the truth about being an entrepreneur. It isn't something you learn, and it certainly isn't primarily about making money. Entrepreneurs are obsessed with freedom. We're obsessed by a vision, an idea, and we're pathologically optimistic"

    I dont like someone (boss, or owner) telling me how much I can make. If I do my own thing the harder I work the more I get paid. If I work hard for someone else I might get paid more maybe $300-$400 a year. Plus I hate having a boss.

    To keep it simple, the thought of me making more money the harder and smarter I work. I would much rather be making myself more profit, than someone else more profit for my hard work. It is about the only place where you can directly get back from what you put in, as far as a business aspect. To stand back and look at what you yourself have accomplished is one of the best feelings in the world. :D

    What drives me to keep working period is simple, my two helpers and my wife :blob1:

    Look at those guys working already, and they're just 1!

    Damn good question

    I have always been enthusiastic. Then again I am obsessive, other than that?

    I agree with Twins. I have twin 10 year old daughters. They are my inspiration.

    Freedom. Oh, and food. I like food.

    It's lonely at the top, but you eat better.:)
