I just came upon the "Introductions" section after making a couple posts over the last few weeks. I am a new guy here. I'm not exactly a contractor, just a guy who remodels for resale. I have considered a real business (I am a teacher, so a side business is kind of a necessity), since I worked in construction while going to college. I worked in concrete, but this would not be where I'd want to go with a business. I was mostly in charge of a shovel and hammer, not as much a trowel and float. Besides, there are already several very good concrete contracotors here on the south side/south suburbs of Chicago.
