Looking to get back into P&P lightly

I was working for a guy doing P&P for SG, 5 brothers, and a few others. I really enjoyed the work, and would like to get back into it part time. Would like to start off small with lock changes, wints, grasscuts, etc, nothing too major. Something I can do on the weekends. The company I was working for closed shop and didn't bother telling me till they were out of money. Don't know what my next step would be. Any ideas or imput. I am in Central Wisconsin.

Thanks.

Your next step should be to read the first two sentences multiple times over the next few days. Let that reality set in.

After what you wrote about the company you worked for you still would want to get into it? Guess if you like working for free and don't mind being bent over then this is the perfect job for u.

Very very hard to turn a profit in central WI. So so many many people willing to work for nothing there.. Drove me out of that area, that and the incompetence of so so many contractors there. Not just REO contractors building contractors also.

On another note - The State of Wisconsin has a disclosure that a dwelling contractor certification / builders license etc does not demonstrate the competency of a contractor. ( I always thought this was really funny until I spent some time in central WI, and the I just understood)

From my understanding, he was running thru a factoring company that took him for most of his money, the factoring company was collecting the money from the different companies and then not paying the company I was working for. No I don't like working for nothing, who does? I did really enjoy what I was doing though. There has to be a way to make a profit in this 'game'
