Well, I officially have my own business. Cleaning/maint/repairing pools and fountains. Each job takes 15 minutes to an hour to do, and each is $50-$70.

In other words, I'm making about $50-$100 an hour, not too shabby at 19 ;)

Your own hours, take a break if you want, no schedule, as long as you just do them once a week, but I plan on "making" myself keep a schedule.

Getting my truck with a logo on the side. It's quite, cool in the morning, near water. You just have to deal with a lot of chemicals, pipes, pumps, don't turn the wrong valve or it explodes, etc, heh. I already have several customers. My father had the business, but took over a church, and he's handing it down to me.


but, go me!!! Finally I can afford an apartment. Pray for me, that this is a success.


and to celebrate...

So, Rp, are you independant? I mean do you employ anyone? Or are you a one man band? But anyways, good luck with the business venture, just give it some elbow grease. ;)

Good luck with your new business, and try not to push yourself too hard when the going gets tough. And nice flash toon, by the way. ;)

Well, I'm inheriting this business, so it's already successful.

As for employees, if I get too many customers, I can either sell the list for $5,500 or hire employees ;)

I already have a secretary :)
