Hey everybody I am new to the property preservation business. I am currently employed with a job working 2nd shift with about 36hrs a week. How long should I keep my full time job before trusting my entire income on property preservation? And how long should I expect until my company can grow into a full time job?

Honest?

Take the jump! There are tons of success stories and a couple of "bad" stories too....

My motto: if you keep doing what you have always done then you will only get what you have always got.

But remember: currently you are able to pay your bills and when you decide to full time P&P you might not be able to.

The three people including myself that have replied to your post do NOT do preservation work for Nationals or Regionals. That in an of itself should tell you something.....

That's not being very nice to the Newbie who doesn't get your sarcasm.

If property preservation is not the best route; what would be a better route to take? What does you and your company specialize in?

not to be mean but use the search function. There are plenty of posts covering this very subject. Just remember that every day in this business prices go down from the previous day. If you follow the advise of this forum (as i did) you will be a lot happier.

Good luck and choose wisely

p&p

if your new to the business you probably don't have any employees this business to get going off the ground if self employed you will need to give yourself 6-9 months before a steady stream of checks come in during day 45-60 to the 180 day period because of work orders seasonality and you being new you will get checks but its based on the limited orders you will get based on what I wrote earlier that's also if you align yourself with a good company and if the pay cycle is what they said otherwise it delays everything
based that its january plan thru september for steady checks .

also not sure where you are but zip codes play a huge part as well based on the work load.GOOD LUCK WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED

Thanks for the reply it was very helpful. Yes, starting out I plan to be self employed. " 45 -60 to the 180 day period" can you elaborate more on this? Is this the time frame it takes to receive checks from your work order? I am located in North Alabama 35601
