I was expecting a drop in business this time of year but not this bad. Today I had absolutely nothing to do at the shop. That is a bad feeling. Hoping it will pick up in a month or two or im going to haft to get a part time job.

Anyone else in the biz having a hard time.

ps. Anyone need any work ill give a great deal to get some business right now. How but a 20% discount for all zx10net members on labor.

I owned my own business "ONCE". 3 years into it and no improvement, put all of my saving into it and walked out with my undies only when it's all said and done.:headshake. I'm working long hours now with not enough pay but it pays the bills and morgage and keep the family warm and fed. Trying to start an other business.. but it's rough..I'll keep trying to make it big or die trying..I hope the make it part come's first..LOL

Hang in there and make sure you stock up on batteries, I used to get slow in winter, and then it was batteries,batteries, batteries, blocked carbs and fouled plugs.

I saw an interesting poll on CNN today and the question was "Are you going to rush out to buy Vista" and 97% said NO. About 60000 had taken the poll. I'll stick with XP or Fedora.

I work for that oil field service company that's had a lot of negative press (not Enron the other one) and we have been just stupid busy. I have been with the company for a lot of years and last year was the bussiest I have ever had. This year has started up right where last year left off. I was hoping for a slow down after the first of the year but it never came. I really do need to get away on a good wild hog hunt for a few days.

I'd rather be working for myself but never had the nerve to make the jump. My hat's off to you guys that took the plunge.
