    Ya I do think of retiring. But then I think, I am already semi retired. I am currently physically working 61 or so days a year. My neighbors think I am a drug dealer or have a wealthy trust that I am living off from.

    My wife dose not work and wants me to cut back as well as to be with our kids and do activities as a family.






    Thats my 2 cents

    I have found that having a business is like golf. Just when you're ready to chunk your clubs in the lake you hit a great shot and decide to keep going.

    I started in Feb of 06. By June of 07 we were in a drought of historic proportions, 08 the drought kept up and the economy started to tank, 09 drought is over but many counties still have water restrictions, lost my commercial contracts and the economy is completely in the toilet. I am also 51 years old, not the greatest age to be looking for work, even if I could find any with unemployment where it is.

    Residential work is actually up this year but the loss of commercial is hurting. I have thought about quitting many times but just keep moving forward. Still hoping to pull a rabbit out of my a** and make this thing work.

    I've never thought of quitting the business of powerwashing, but I have let some services go. They are usually replaced by shorter time/higher rewards type of services. There are some stains that I have given up on in the past, like about 1000 times but something always pushes me to go back until I figure it out.

    That's what I love about the biz is there are so many different ways and techniques to clean something. It's our jobs to figure out the right combination to make our jobs faster and more profitable.

    It was tough in the beginning. Not enough work, hard work with little to show for it.

    But quit? Never! The easiest way through something is straight at it. Failure isn't an option.

    No not yet lol. I have actually been doing pretty good here in Maine. I think that maine is a little slower than the rest of the country when it comes to cleaning up their property. I am trying hard to spread the word and it can get frustrating at times. but I believe I will overcome the battle and start to flourish. AUDENTAS FORTUNA JUVAT.
