Well, since I was 16, I've been a self-employed computer technician and web designer, but over the last eight months, I've been employed by a maintenance supply company, a distributor, as a system admin and marketing director...but over the last 2-3 months, they incorporated billing (which was only done by their owner, for 29 years) and a small part of purchasing. The three owners, two of which are always in the office, are putting a couple of guys into place to run the company in 5-6 years, and as it stands, eight months in, I'm doing nearly everything anyone in the company can do, aside from actually driving our trucks and delivering products (which is what we have warehouse guys for).
Always been curious as to what you do for a living Real Deal? It's obviously something really complex and time-consuming since I know for someone like you, it would take a lot to limit your activity around these here parts of the town.
Being self-employed was great, but my town is pretty damn small, and at one point, I had a lot of customers...but I wasn't half-ass'ing my job JUST to get callbacks. Because I didn't, I had less work, and because my rates were basically running all the other techs into the ground, it eventually hurt me. It happens, and before I made the decision to finally increase those rates, I ran into the opportunity above.
