Finally the business is coming back to life after a long, quiet winter. In November, we purposely chose to take a lot of time off, fairly shutting it down except for the few dribbles that came in that could be handled by the remaining crew. Then the snow started and didn't stop for months which froze that down to a trickle. I wondered if the business would come back to life at all but now I see it has.
There is nothing like having your own small business. We are lucky to be able to make a decent living and still have time to live and enjoy our lives - but you do have to create the thing over and over and over again. "Hustle" is the word.
