How old were you when you started your own surveying company?
48 I win! Or do I lose?
I had never stayed at a job more than 3 years in my life. That was 21 years ago.
45, after 18 years at another firm "learning the ropes" 🙂
30. After 7 years being the Forest Engineer for a paper company.
44. on my 44th birthday, as a matter of fact. i did it bass ackwards from what most here would suggest: with almost zero cash on hand and i went out and borrowed 75K for gear and a truck. today i paid the balance of that off.
in may i turn 46. not sure if i'd do it all over again right now- at least the way i did it. timing counts for a lot.
oh, right- sitting here at the kitchen table typing this. i, for one, prefer it this way.
38 (1988 - 12/31/2019) upcoming funeral.
