dead right I love this business in all its incarnations and I believe plumbers should inherite the worldFor me there is one thing from which all others will naturally flow - "Passion" if you don't love Plumbing you will never be any good so long as you have a hole in it.
I guess it applies to most things in life but never found anything that comes close.
Not even the wife , don't tell her but think she knows mind.
Good advise there, I’ve got 4 employed soon to be 5 & my first kid on the way. 80+ hr weeks at the moment (have been for years) but can’t see an end to it. Hoping to get out what I’m putting in, we will see though.Alot depends on what type of plumber, gas man you want to be ultimately. You could be employed...one set of skills, self emoloyed same set of skillls Plus the sheet tenacity to succeed cause most of the time ur on your own.no back up its no good going home on friday with no lolly
You might want to develope your business and employ others...as well ...I did and still do ...beware its tricky and you MUST get from 2/3 fellas to 6+ in a short time otherwise you will get fed up running around picking up all the crap and earning less than your boys and usually go bust or lose your wife. Hard truths but been there seen it and made all the mistakes ...my sons are all in construction or mes and learning....sometimes at my expense.

I.F. Back in the early 90's I employed 11. Had to have 2 in the office for 'admin' even in those days. Goodness knows what it would be like these days.Good advise there, I’ve got 4 employed soon to be 5 & my first kid on the way. 80+ hr weeks at the moment (have been for years) but can’t see an end to it.

Did you find at 5+ you needed office people? Or did you come off the tools for that yourself?
If you keep working 80+ hours a week you will end up sick, divorced or dead. Having kids is a big new responsibility; start figuring out now how to get your hours down to a level where your kids will know who you are and you'll live to see their 18th birthdays.my first kid on the way. 80+ hr weeks at the moment (have been for years) but can’t see an end to it.
