I would have gotten a Chopper instead of a John Deere with a steering wheel. I thought green paint had to be the best since I grew up on a farm, wrong again.

I would have moved to the Seattle area. This area is going down the crapper.

Bought a bigger trailer to begin with.... the 6 x 10 was fine for a while.... now I can't get the rider on with the w/b.... Other than than, really nothing. Plan your work, work your plan. So far, so good. Time will tell.

I would of charged a whole lot more for my services, cut out some of the deadbeats I inherited, and diversified earlier on. Looking back, I missed a lot of good opportunities for substantial growth by simply not knowing any better.

I won't miss the next ones. ;)

I figure hind sight is 20/20.

I dont know as though outside of pricing structure, if I would have changed much back then. Maybe not dealt with some of the contractor's I have sub work out to ,,, I guess.
