I have talked to local one man operation about possible buyout. he is 60+ and wants to slow down. we have not yet come up with a value but he has said he realizes that he can't ask much if i am going to make it. However he only charges 35 per hour(in city 15 miles away that is half of going rate) and is turning away work. I already have most tools of my own and am very agressive, service guy with good feedback from customers. I also have thought about starting from scratch.. I am getting calls with out tring. what would you do?
