Hiring. Lots and lots of hiring. I've brought on some really great people so far and working towards getting more of the same. Only advice I can provide at this point is this:

Shitty days come and go. But no matter what you do just keep helping people. Help them achieve their goals. Help them with their problems. Help motivate them. It's a mantra I'm taking super seriously this year and I'm doubling down on my efforts. It pays off in SO many ways in both business and life.

Other than that, business is solid. 4 full time employees at this point trying to get to 30 by EOY. The stage is set for continued growth and that's what will happen. No delusions, no ego pumping, it's just a matter of continuing to do what I've been doing.

Wow. Went from being a grunt being kicked around, to a role model. World class role model I should add.

There HAS to be a movie in there somewhere!

Your story is similar to mine, sans the success. Right now I'm working as a framer - no safety equipment for me either. In the past 6 months I've fallen off a 20 ft ladder, off a ten foot foundation wall, I near cut my knuckle off, and I shot a nail through my hand. Fortunately today is only minus 6 Celsius. You're absolutely right, every day is FTE
