After you left the nationals

Morning everyone..

My Name is Ezdayman.... It has been 4-1/2 months since i have touched the belly of the beast. lol

It has been 4-1/2 but i was wondering what everyone did after they left.. did people choose different jobs? sell off everything? get a 8-3 job? i want to stay my own boss but the IRS, payroll, taxes make it to much of a hassle..
just wondering... And its been great 4-1/2 months get to sleep in, relax, didnt haveto worry about frozen pipes, or charge backs!

BEST thing I have done My exit strategy was to get ALL of my remaining inventory SOLD off and not take any new properties on. I started denying on and 2 a month then more and mor and when thepropertied had gone to market and sold I was DONE! NO charge backs or other back charges were happening.

With that said I was looking for other avenues to travel down while using my inventory and skills. I landed a job with the STATE doing grounds maintenance irrigation and the likes and it is GREAT. Benefits starting with a month off a year between sick and personal time off! Medical dental and vision care. My boss is very laid back and does not expect perfection like t he nationals did. I have kept a realtor and 1 national tho the national will be getting told good bye after some 3 months to get paid 25$ for replacing a door lock that had been kicked in!

The realtor is gravy ! I bid and do work on my schedule and paid in a week to 2 weeks. no photos required and NO national headaches.

Hope this Helps

well we are still working with a few nats but I have taken some advice from a member named WANNABE he has a thread here "how I got out of P&P" I got my MRS (MOLD REMEDIATION SPECIALIST) certificate and water damage restoration cert I am planning to leave p&p for the mold and water damage work. I too enjoy being my own boss, it is taking off slowly but surely and I see a light at the end of the tunnel .

I think it's only a matter of time for all of us to leave this insanity. I only got into this because construction dropped off the world.. The last two or three months have been slow and I've been finding REAL work in the REAL world. I think I'll just not except unprofitable orders and see how the nationals like me then.

We left P&P in summer, slow as well. We have only hazards left and we don't want to do it for much longer. We purchased multiunits, working with local bank, marketing our services and slowly integrating with the real world and real people

EZ,

I've been out of the P&P racket (nationals and regionals) for a little over a year. I am still my own boss and I've been doing better than ever. P&P is like an addiction. It clouds your judgment and doesn't allow you to focus on actually running your business. I think so much clearer, get more sleep, have more time with my family and have more time to focus on growing my business. In addition, I am more profitable the hours that I work.

Now that's not to say P&P was a bad thing for me. I still maintain the friendships and contacts I developed during my time in the racket. I still get calls for my services, but now I dictate the terms.

Keep plugging away and moving ahead. The longer you're out, the more you question why it took so long to make the decision to leave

You can still stick around here and be on the sidelines, just like me and a few others.....
