    Every Boss I Ever worked for.

    I wanted to work for myself and have more freedom.  It took me about 9 months to be able to earn what I could have earned elsewhere.  And the business is very seasonal meaning I earned almost nothing for 4 months of the year.

    I would not have been able to succeed if I was not living at home to start. Or if I had a family to feed.

    Many fail. I was lucky.

    I see many businesses fail. Even before covid.

    I keep all of the profits, make all of the decisions and I am my own boss.

    Both of them, just sort of seemed like the thing to do at the time.  It was more about making my own schedule then anythign else at the time. I never had a dream to own my own business or anything like that. Just sort of worked out that way.
