    HUH? you started your own business after only 4 months in the trade? Sounds about right for a typical MI contractor, why i am leaving state....

    You are still not clear mickey. Did your wife leave you and now you are on your own?

    Welcome to the club mickey but you need to learn to communicate clearly as soon as possible.

    Dont get to confident. Your bound to get bitten. As far as Spideys comment, there are plenty of excellent MI contractors and Im one of them. There are also some excellent inspectors around my area that will force you to be good or get out. Good luck to you mikey!!

    Well, I was close. I did residential tinning for about a year and a half before I moved to service with a different company. One week into service, the boss broke his leg and arm. I was all by myself, except for the phone. At the time, it was only me and him.
