licensed, insured, new trailer, locally known, and financially stable.

I want to be making just over what i make at my current job + extra funds to help the company grow. I feel like this year is my one shot on determining if this is something i can keep up with.

I love doing this, and i both miss and regret abandoning it. I'm hoping that I can become more dedicated to the company and make it work and that me leaving for a year did not affect my chances on keeping up.

I have high hopes, and lots of goals. But i have the ambition more now so than i have ever. I have already looked into becoming licensed and insured. I am also setting marketing plans. I have taken 2 weeks off of my current job (spring break) so i can re-organize and build up my company for the new season. Also i will begin marketing. So far all i have done was post a craigslist ad
