    It was 1964, I was 10 yrs old and working for my Dad with my older brother.

    $ 1.00/hr was big money.
    Do not attempt vast projects with
    half vast experience and ideas.

    I started at 25 after 4 years in the corporate field working on IBM mainframes, got sick of the office environment and contract work, when my last contract ended i decided to leave that field for good. almost 6 years in the field and its not a bad gig, does have some downsides as well but its a nice skill to have, thats for sure.
