    how old are you like 10? you call yourself a professional? I've been doing this since 97, I'm certified universal. if you wanna flame ppl, I suggest finding another forum.

    I'll back his advice.

    Training is a never-ending thing. I've been in the trade since 94 and I am continuously looking for new opportunities to improve myself professionally.

    Now, I'm not a 'business' guy, but if you were planning on going out on your own, you'd think you would already have a fair handle on what costs and mark-ups and such would be.

    unfortunately all i ever did was go on service calls and the company would do the financial part. but thanks for the reply
