I'm 46, 5'10", and I'm into, WHOOPS, wrong forum. Just kidding,I was hired by a painting contractor when I was in my early 20s,but that didn't last to long,laid off.About 12 yrs ago I applied for a maint jod at an apart complex in Shreveport, La. Went fron low man to superviser.Moved to Jefferson City, Mo. and did construction untill I started my own business 14 mo. ago. I've had work every day since.Yesterday I broke a double pane glass window,first damage I've ever caused on a job site. Well there goes the profits. I do painting and home repair. I've had to go after 2 squirrels this year. When I first applied for maint. I didn't know a thing, now I run my own company. Hope I didn't run too long, Ron J.
