    it's silly to be in this business for the money... i actually took a considerable pay cut to move here from florida despite a promotion in position.

    One of the toughest things I ever did was start The BoardSMITH. When the last job went away I was to old to get another good, high paying job, to young to be a Wal-Mart greeter and much to young to draw Social Security. I had no real backing, little money, a few good tools and a lot of experience. After having one business fold after 18 months a long time ago I was a little leery of trying again but it was either sit on my butt and complain or get out and try to build something. My wife and I agonized with the decision for a long time and then we made the decision to go for it! As it turns out over 8 years later, it was a good decision.

    Unlike you my children are grown and they have children of their own so I didn't have to worry about being an absentee Dad. The only thing that changed was the amount of dirty laundry I created and a lot less money to have around. I know nothing about the food service industry but I do know that if a person sets their sights on a realistic goal and then works towards it with diligence, that realistic goal will be reached with effort.

    I wish you the best and I know that you will come out on top.

    Hey David, if nothing pans out for me I'm going to appear on your doorstep to begin my new career as "Boardsmith shop monkey".
    I promise I'll buy some steel-toed shoes/boots first though!

    Man, I hated catering. It's rare I cook "out" these days despite many good money requests.I just hate it!
    I can tell you from experience, cooking isn't the same without the passion.

    Good for you!
