After 6 months, I’m starting to see the bill collectors stop snapping at my heals. That said, we’re coming into the real slow time up here and it’s getting scary.
It would have been nice to have a FT job to fall back on while I started the business, but didn’t. Made just enough to keep the lights on and nothing else. This month work has doubled, but like I said, this is the rush before winter sets in.
I have no doubts next year will be much better for me, but getting thru the long winter has me real nervous.
Thank god most of my dues/memberships/ads don’t come due until next spring when work picks up or I’d be screwed.
Hard to tell you what you should do...would I do anything different? I would have wished I had a larger bank account to fall back on, and I wish I had at least a PT job on the side.
Ride alongs? Not a bad idea...I felt I had enough experience and education to do a good job without doing that(24 years) from the start. I still don't know everything and never will. Things perplex me on every job and it's a good thing this board is here cause the guys can usually help you out if you have trouble.
Good luck and Join NACHI...best investment I made.
