I look forward to following the process as you go full time.  Your previous posts have been very interesting and informative.  You are not just starting a new chapter but rather an whole new book!

Good luck with "new" business venture.  They were also my best ventures.  Retiring and sawing.

Congratulations and good luck/skill on your venture. I hope to do the same one day but I chose the wrong saw for that this time. I won't be running behind an LT28 for a living. Great website.

pnyberg, congratulations on the big leap into self employment 8) 8)

Your an inspiration for me.  I could see myself venturing into a similar business. Maybe sooner than later too.

I may have said this before but will mention again, you have a great website. 8)

I have been self-employed for nearly 5 years now doing everything a private business does such as production, sales, marketing, insurance, handle employees, etc....and it still surprises me how often I get that comment "how does it feel to be retired"?   My response is always something like " Well maybe I will go back to work as I do need the rest". 

Peter, best of luck to you in your new FULL-TIME business.
