So how, exactly, does one quit doing this kind of work? I mean, I worked for decades to get these calls. Now it's paying off and I'm supposed to say no? I can't really do that. :confuse:
Buy yourself a nice white hardhat, get your beer and lawn chair, only without the beer, and supervise. Find a couple youngsters to do the work. It'll cut into your profit, but not your life expectancy. You'll still be getting some extra pocket cash, the youngsters will do the same and learn a trade at the same time. My cousin has a small irrigation business(installs lawn sprinkler systems), and when he needs some extra hands, he hits one of the local bars and always finds a couple guys willing to do a days work for $100 cash.
