But seriously, it appears that you are self motiviated and have strong mechanically inclinations. These will get you through the hard times when all else fails. Welcome to the trade.

bbk,I gotta say "great advice".
Thanks for the post. So how are you doing. Almost a year in ,has the income picked up? Are you going out alone to jobs? Is it what you expected?
I got a minor setback today.The total financing for the BOCES school won't go through in time for the spring/summer class. So I'm going to have to wait now until Sept. All I can do now is start reading up at my local Barnes and Nobles. I really don't have 5 months to put this off but I really want to do this so I'm just going to have to wait and use the time now to study up before class starts.The class is 300 hours for $3,800. I can't aford to pay for that.
But as someone who just started out and is also my age, I'm very interested in your thoughts ,experiences and general outlook. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
Thanks to you other guys for posting. I minimize my rely and get to it when I can. My daughter needs something, wife needs help. I finally post and you other guys sent in responses. I just don't want to exclude anyone while I'm replying to a response. I read everything so if I don't acknowledge you, I greatly appreciate your posts.Ed
