Sold off my half of my landscape business a couple days ago. My business partner was a compulsive liar, drug addict and dealer, who happened to be on probation as well. Honestly, I’m not even phased by it. The workers we hired weren’t great and it made it hard for me to be with my family.
On top of that, I couldn’t dedicate my entire energy to it as it was just a side business and my business partner and co owner was doing it full time. But the problem was that he was a fucking idiot and was terrible at labor, talking to customers and making sure funds don’t go to marijuana or Yeezys.
Building patios is a very profitable field and made me a lot of money in a short amount of time, but it’s hard to run a business properly when you have a better paying 9-5 and can’t trust anyone else to operate the business when you can’t.
Good news is my Tacoma probably is enjoying not getting loaded to payload with pavers every other day. In other news, we are about to hit our one year and 17,000 mile anniversary.
