Well for me it has been feeding my family. RCIA got me started in the roof cleaning. I just walked a house today that is about 4k sq feet and the wife is a horticulturalist that has her own local show. Need to be very careful about the plants. Contractors installing a pool just demolished a $4,500 Japanese maple about 6" in diameter. Gonna be expensive for them. Of course all her plants seem to be either rare or very expensive varieties and there are alot of them.

Plan to tarp tarp tarp and then tarp again. I will also have several sprinklers running at the same time and 2 ground guys. Then I will extend the gutter run off to the lawn and keep it out of the flower beds. Better to kill the grass than the plants. This is going to be a doozy for me.

Because of RCIA and the advice here my name is starting to get out and I am starting to get calls. Oh and did I mention that this home owner is a commercial land lord? Better do this one right or I am sunk. He would tell more people than I can count with my shoes off. Not to mention that I would probably get free publicity from his wife if I kill her plants.

As a matter of fact because of RCIA I started another business yesterday and will be running the roof cleaning as a sub to that to bring in my wife and daughters into the business.

We are calling it "The Cleaning Doctor" and with a tag line of "We have your prescription for DIRT!"

I would like to thank you personally and Chris along with the others for all of your advice and guidance so far. Some of you called out of the blue to talk shop and just BS and I am grateful for that. Those here truely want others to succeed. It is still a learning process.

Because of RCIA I have gone from being layed off to having 2 operating companies and a potential for a great future. The heck with Social Insecurity.

Thanks to all that have helped me and to those that will help in the future.

This has been a god send when I thought i was going to have to go at this alone. I feel like this is my calling and i no longer fear of getting laid off at work for this will be full time. I am still working on getting my feet grounded but with the support this forum offers i feel safe and secure!
