Anyone knocking on my door soliciting work would never work for me. That means you walked passed all the no soliciting and no trespassing signs. Make sure you smile for the cameras and you’ll probably be greeted with 2 angry German shepherds and a gun.

Wish we only worked 5 days. We work 6 full days and every other Sunday afternoon. I am replacing the guy that I had to let go soon. Our average day is around $7-8000 although sometimes quite a bit more if it is emergency work. That is gross obviously, but our expenses remain somewhat fixed so I have a good idea of what net should be on a given day.

As much money as you have you can recruit lots of help with all that money to spare. If you really make that much you can pay your guys triple the norm! I got to call BS!
