No matter how much you love what you do, yes, you can get burnt out. Does your dad treat you like an equal or a tool? Make sure you're getting paid well for your time, at some point you're going to want to relax and enjoy yourself . Years ago I worked for a guy that treated me like a tool and he didn't think twice about booking me for calls well into the evening everyday, while he spent his evenings and weekends building a log cabin, he'd just book another call onto my list. At the end of that summer I really didn't have anything to show for it but a tired body ( back then they didn't even pay overtime) but he had a new house. It turned out to be a good thing because I decided I couldn't do much worse so I quit him and started my own business, afterall, if you're going to put in that much time, it might as well be for you, not him."You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best.
