What is your biggest work challenge right now?
My biggest challenge right at the moment is trying to get four days worth of work completed by the end of day on Tuesday. The rain we had from the remnants of hurricane Florence put me behind schedule for a bout a week.

My soon to have challenge will be finding new work once all this is caught up.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


My biggest problem is dealing with SEO, I am a small company3 full time guys. We do alot of handyman type of work as well as bigger jobs like bathrooms etc.
There are now national chains, that hire low skilled employees fighting for the same work, I have no problem with the competition but they are out advertizing me with there expertise in SEO.

My biggest challenge has always been finding help. Seem nobody wants to work that hard. Just want more money, and more time off...

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


My biggest challenge is trying to get 5 or 6 jobs wrapped up before I go on vacation for a week at the end of the month. I work alone and we all know how even small hiccups can cause waves

My biggest challenge right now is scheduling and staying on schedule. It is very difficult for me to stick to my schedule and not slip in a small job here and there!

Catching up so I can take breather, get organized and regroup.

I feel like Lucy and Ethel in the chocolate factory job, if you've seen that one back in the day.

Now that they’re showing up, getting my subs to actually work and stay off their phones. I don’t know how some people make a living.

Tin well done I understand saying no is hard always worried about the next job ? but after all these years its just around the corner.

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!
