I cannot confirm or deny anything. After dating for 10 years we got married. If you ask my wife she insists I never actually proposed to her. One day I took her to a jewelry store told her to pick and ring out. After we left the store she asks so does this mean you want to marry me, I gave her a think what you want as a response lol. To this day she still jokes with me about it.

If someone is paying you good money to do something... Then they are making good money off of it

They're making so much money that they're able to pay for your healthcare and retirement

Also if you have a job that pays you money then you always have paid vacation and holidays

They either hold that money for you until you take the time off work or you receive it hourly everyday...

Also why would anyone make a company to make less money? The goal is always to make more money

If your current job pays more than what your dream business would make then you have the wrong dream or need to dream bigger

Are you sure he didn't close up shop to free up some time to hike the Appalachian Trail?

Give AF credit for picking up and pushing on every time.

Action Fab is 100% right in pursuing his goals with passion and tenacity.
I hope aging does not lessen his drive, and that he's wildly successful.

At the same time, AF is 100% wrong in assuming he knows what's best for others.
I hope aging matures him out of the condescending BS that doomed this thread

Don't kick him in the nuts for taking risks trying to do his own thing.
(but maybe for the pretentious douchebaggery and presumption )

I disagree with that. my current job pays me enough that i'm able to be happy with my life while contributing to what will be my 'working retirement' where I can be self employeed.

if things work out, my business will be almost solely to build equity and not pay out or earn taxable. Why? because I enjoy working hard for mediocrity and don't have much desire to pay taxes for my freedoms

I don't particularly want to travel the world in my retirement and if I die before getting there, then i'll at least have left my family with all my 'working for the man' perks.

considering your love of skinny jeans and monthly fashion boxes, I don't think they're exactly in left field

Who am I "following"?

to answer your question, no I am not gay. I'm also not a 12 yr old girl, so that's 2 strikes for you, sorry dude

They are.

Food,

Warmth,
Education,
Transportation,
It's all free.

Tell me again why they should actually work?

I know how capitalism works. They pay me well because I return to them on investment well. Those people invested 150 million at one point, and was returned to them 4 dollars for every one dollar they invested. For a salary that was mutually agreed upon, I'm not a slave, I'm a willing participant. I couldn't join their level because I don't have millions of dollars to invest and years to sit on it. The guys that put out the millions got their millions back with interest, I got compensated what I expected to whether they were successful or not. At this point in the game no one is getting rich on oil & gas that wasn't already rich to begin with.

Oil & Gas production is one of the most profitable businesses in the world. Built and backed by millionaire's billionaire's and banks. Who TF can compete with that as small business man? The next biggest profitable ventures are miles away from Exxon Mobile, BP, Conoco Phillips etc. What offroad shop do you know of paying high school educated workers 6 figures a year? Some of the best fabricators I know are making a couple hundred thousand dollars a year in the oil field, and fab'n in their spare time. I can go to work in Texas tomorrow making $20,000 a month. I don't know of any offroad dreamers making that working for or owning a shop.

The stupid 10% spec windows on the sand seives drives me batty but I got it figured out lol. It has come down to the way I pile it when manufacturing it and they way I load it into my truck will throw the specs off.
