Anyone here own their own business?

Looking to see if any fellow FTE members here own their own business.

I own a hauling business. We do construction clean up, junk removal etc..

(Note: this is not an advertisement.)

Wondering if we have any fellow entrepreneurs here.

Thought about starting one a few times - decided to wait until after the move. CA seems... unfriendly... to small business.

Always wondered about that, but never thought to ask.

Jokes aside, I can't really argue with the brilliance of a man who's managed to arrange things so that at any given time... he can go racing without having to call in.

You're a hell of a role model sir.
