For those of you who donít know, 10 months ago I closed up shop(remodeling business) here in Jersey and headed to Georgia for a chance to subcontract instead trying to keep my one man operation going amidst heavy opposition.
So while in Georgia the company I was working for started taking on more work than they could handle so in turn hired some workers who turned out to be less than honest. It seems some of them were billing the company for more hours that they actually worked and doing sub par work to boot which left me in the position of punch list carpenter instead of subcontractor to right all the wrongs and take care of the customer complaints. Most of the companyís time and resources were spent completing jobs instead of starting new ones which anyone who knows how to two step will tell you that one step forward and two steps back leads you off the dance floor, backwards and on your rear.
So as the company started taking on less work while trying to recover their losses left me hanging on by a thread. Do to the high cost of living in and around the Atlanta area plus paying bills in two states lead me to the decision to come back home and start all over again. If I had more time and money I could have found a cheaper, larger apartment( $1100 a month efficiency) with a place to park my truck, trailer and equipment($350 a month storage) in a less than desirable area in Marietta. I could have found work and made a go of it.
That being said, I plan on playing catch up on all the wonderful new malware I have missed.
Although my time is limited do to starting my business back up Iíll help out whenever possible. Iím also starting over with a newly reformatted machine here because of the havoc my son wreaked while I was away. I used PowerQuest Drive Image but sadly the backup I made was pre HJT classes so when I say Iím starting over Iím not kidding.
Anyway, Itís good to be home again.
