    Going good for me. Have turned down lots of work already. I don't want to get huge, just enough to keep me full time.

    What is wrong with employees??

    Sell time high and buy it cheap. Let others do the sweaty work and you stay cool and count the money!! :eek: :cool:

    Well I kind of like the work I do and dont want anyone hanging around and getting in my way. I prefer to work by myself. I'm not really a people person but I still have to turn up the charm to keep all those cranky old people in their stratas happy.

    business is great this year. Best ever so far. I'm making more after paying my employees and expenses than what my FT job pays and I haven't worked (actual on site) more than 30 hrs this year. Seems like the economy is a lot better this year than last.
