Default Celebrating my 5th season in business !!!

I'll be celebrating my 5th season in business as of April 27 2011

I will be having a professional equipment photo shoot in the spring because my picture is going in the local newspaper with the article i'm going to make/publish !

I got a call today from my school board asking if I wanted to renew my contract for the schools this year I also got a Electronic Money Transfer sheet today from this business I dealt with last year, which means he's giving me contracts this year for Bell building ! Omg, things are going so fast it will be spring again !

Just wanted to share, i haven't been active over winter on the forum !

Ok, Thanks for answering my question.
That's great that you're doing so well just starting your 5th season. It's encouraging to know that one can really accomplish a lot if you apply yourself. I'm starting my first season this spring. Success to all.

Congratulations Justin!

As you look back over those 5 years of business so far, which business lessons do you feel you learned that really stand out to you?
