It's interesting, but definitely not for everyone. There is heaps of repetition. The job I'm on at the moment is part of an order of 1200 vehicles, so there will be the same welds for a while.

I could see that but at the same time I love dropping the hood as long as possible

I've found i prefer the layout at this site, seems to be organized a little better. Altho who thought light grey text on a white background was a good idea.

Glad you liked it, Dave. I didn't think I could offer much but I reckon I could have talked for another couple of hours.

Artie,
Thank you very much! It's been a long time coming but I finally made the jump. So far it has been a blast and a learning curve. You think you have it all figured out and something new comes your way (or more specifically difficult customers).

On this note, the next episode, 61 or 62 depending on how it all works out, will specifically deal with growing your business. I asked a lot of questions and am hoping that you, yes you reading this, can offer some incite and opinion.

My advice is to be near a large city or you better have a niche! Now I just need to find a niche!

A thought on the "first job is free" strategy: make sure you put the invoice into the hand of the decision maker, and make sure you explain to that decision maker right then and there why he's getting the credit. If you don't, or if you leave it for them or mail it in, the invoice may get swept up into the accounts payable process, and the only person to notice is the a/p tech. Also, give a copy of that invoice to your tax guy ao he can take it out of the tax bill.
