So let’s rewind 12 years back for a whole minute. Twelve years ago a friend had this great idea that I should come work with him. My present employer had just screwed me over on a raise and they already weren’t paying me jack anyhow, So I jumped at the opportunity to make more $$ and start a job that I thought might take me some where; so young, dumb and full of…..
It was fun for a while, learned a lot at that place, www.templepest.com, some good, some bad. I grew up working at that place, for that I don’t regret spending 10 years of my young life there. But one day I woke up and realized that I was stuck, I felt like i was in prison. I hadn’t seen a raise in 4 years maybe more, I hated going to work everyday, and I had a piss poor attitude about the company and the business. I wanted more out of life. I wanted……my life.
So after months of back and forth I quit. Since I was a teenager I had always been a handy guy; remolded my parents kitchen, built decks, etc. When I bought my first house I completely remodeled the the whole thing, just learned as I went. If I didn’t know how to do something I researched it until my eyes bled and then did it. I became quite a craftsman in the process. Always had people asking me to do work for them, never had the time. It just seemed natural to do it for a living. So that’s what I did. Left behind the security of a steady paycheck to work for myself.
That seems like good stopping point for today…….Deuces…..J_Red
