    Hi all,
    I am new to this forum as of last week. Currently, I have a full time job with a salary, benefits, and health insurance (huge), but I hate the job, and I'm not happy there. I'm trying to start up my own snow removal/lawn maintenance company (bought a truck and plow), but right now I just can't leave my full time job and be without health insurance, or a steady salary. My frustration is I am not sure how to manage my full time job and my new clients (just got some residences for this winter). I worry that I won't be able to handle both when it starts snowing, and I'll end up losing the small amount of clients I have. Should I try and hire some subcontractors to help if it snows during the hours I'm at my full time job? Have any of you had this problem, I could really use some advice. Please help!

    :help: :help: :help: :help:

    Thanks, I greatly appreciate your help!

    This same situation was discussed in a topic earlier. I'll keep it short and simple. Find a sub that can cover for you while your at work. That way, in case it does snow and your stuck at work, your accounts are still covered. :waving:

    That is exactly what I would do. Not a bad idea to have a sub on back up anyway. :waving:
