    Prepping for job interviews this week. One in the Neuro trauma ICU and the other in the emergency dept. Been along time since being on this side of it. Hope I don't blow it. Pretty nervous to say the least.

    Johnny and Squish... I appreciate the info. That is pretty much what Im thinking. Also, my doc said to avoid a lot of caffeine. I got a prescription for modanifil which supposedly has no crash and boost mental ability. Military uses it. I only plan on taking it if I need on the front end of day one. Also, hoping for a busy night to make it cruz by. The only glitch is that Im at the mercy of my preceptors schedule and I can't pull more then three consecutive nights. oh well...it'll work out. Im more concerned for my family for this next month....

    Any of y'all try the Tenkara style of fly fishing? Looks pretty simple and super light for back country travel.

    current ranks: I wouldn't say most trades are honest. I think tree biz may be close to car salesman .....it sucks that a fw bad apples spoil the bunch. I still get funny looks when I tell folks I was an arborist. Some make comments about how much money tree guys make. I laugh and move on now.....

    No_Bivy replied to a thread Motivation in Business Management
    the point is when your inner voice starts saying " i need something different" its time to listen. The problem isn't always solved by changing business strategies. Buy more equipment? Do I want to be a slave to this equipment ? Do I want to manage an ever changing turnover of employees who some become competitors? Is there a time I can let this biz go and not worry about details of what I need to do or what I should have done? fact is there is no one answer. For Brian, and epiphany was hiring an employee was a game changer. For others ..these employees are the bain of their existence. Is it time for a change? Can I rise to challenge to the fear of the unknown? Hard questions. I say go for it....whatever you choose. But....if you launch into justifying that one action will make your same path better.......think twice. Is there more to the story? Will that new chipper solve your problems. Will the way you bid your prices higher solve your inner struggle of "why am I doing this". re invent yourelf. It might be the best medicine.

    happened to me at same age. Sold the biz and went back to school. Very challenging but also super interesting. Trying to lock in the coveted CRNA position. Good pay, awesome schedule. All the things you mentioned were burning me out. 165 days to go for on BSN. little more time for CRNA. I would say check out other gigs around you. There are lots of careers that don't hammer the body while filling your wallet. Plenty of time to make a change. For me, the biggest thing I wanted was to be able to leave my job behind when Im done. Running a tree biz is stressful. Working for someone else is pretty much a dead end. Having guaranteed employment despite market or weather woes in nice to. Getting benefits with sick and VAcay time is awesome as well. Hoping for full time gig at the VA soon..... keep your head up. your 45 years young.

    maybe a bad question to ask.......are you with holding taxes? 1099 aint an employee. You certainly can find just an accountant to do it for you......but you will need the EIN number, and they will dang for sure follow the rules. A 1099 is a sure way to get an audit

    WC aint cheap but its gold when you need it. Don't let your past opinions color the importance of it. You can opt of coverage and just find a disability policy for yourself in case shit gets ugly

    truthfully....once you start I think its your baby. bid high. Or walk, and don't bother. Any lawyer will pick apart the waiver. What are the consequences for the tree failing?
