Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Ironically, my biggest challenge right now is saying "no" to more work. I have a lot of work that needed to be done to my own place last year, and still haven't gotten to it.

Matter of fact, just this evening I hired someone to do some work on my driveway while I'm off building a house. I've never done that before.

My biggest work challenge right now?

It's two-fold.

1. Scheduling. I have a ton of work.

2. Age. I ain't no spring chicken anymore. I'm getting older.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


The biggest struggle on this site I'm on is balancing an unrealistic schedule with engineering setbacks, lack of material, improper pre-job setup and 'overachieving' safety regulations (Don't get me wrong, safety is important, but it has to come from a realistic approach)

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


learning to say no is a big one. I'm also bad at not dinging the customer enough when they expand the scope of the work.

My biggest challenge, like most here, is figuring out how to work less, and earn more.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


No challenges at all...except maybe the rainy year we've had and the scheduling nightmare that comes with it.

At least my feet are compfy and staying dry in my Danner Strongholds

Time...not enough time in the day for everything. I am turning away work and still have a backlog. Prices are very good and people are willing to wait.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


My biggest challenge right now is getting this 4500 sf house buttoned up, windows are coming in on Tuesday morning, roofer is starting on Monday morning.
I guess the other challenge is dealing with the rough terrain on the site, homeowner is acting as his own GC and the guy he hired to do the excavation sucks and has been MIA and left the place like a mine field!
