Reply...some people have the golden touch.  I'm happy that you get inspiration from him.  Paying $300 a month proves that you are serious about bettering yourself and making your business work.  Like I said before it's easier if someone sets up the ground work for you...it's even better if this person truly has the golden touch.
 
even with all that said...don't discounted your will to succeed. Pilediver your willingness and focus are the things that will carry you through no matter what you spend.  Seems to me that you already have that.
 
I wish I had that drive

The weekly salery I pay my employees at the restaurant, they have to give me a return of 5 times..example 400/week.....they must make me $ 2000 in return.......otherwise they are of no use to me.
 
In your case ..........You are paying $ 3,600 /year.........are you getting back at least  $ 18,000 in extra revenue/yearly to compensate for your investment..........if NOT..............I HAVE A BRIDGE THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SELL YOU......COMPLETE WITH TOOL GATES

Steamer, thanks for the kind words. I think you are a survivor and I reflect on your many posts of what a grind the GTA market is. What is inspirational about your posts is that you seem to be really hard core to keep grinding. At times it seems that you call out for some of us to somehow make you see how much better the GTA could be so you could make more money with less grind.

I really wish I could offer you some inspiration and advice that would help you as much as some of the people on this board have influenced me in such a positive way.

Attitude sets your altitude.

With anything pilediver...like this forum you just have to take from it what works for you.  We get carried away here most times and it becomes a joke when we need to bounce serious ideas of one another.
 
the thing I like about Howard is that you are having small group discussions with him, where he can advise you on your personal business plan and direction.  I think this really works  and if this was in the gta I might even look to join.  Thanks for the  great post and it was a pleasure bouncing ideas back and forth. 
 
I wish this forum was more help like this some times

Piledriver, Kudos to you for having the ability to see a way to better your company, whether it does or not. It is the difference between a carpet cleaner and a business owner. While the carpet cleaners are out scrubbing carpets, the business owners are looking at ways to improve their business..             "The E-myth" Micheal Gerber
