What good is a sub contractor that works only intermittently?I had a small snow removal and lawn-care/ grounds maintenance with a couple seasonal employees for about 10yrs and worked in the trades. I got out of snow removal and lawn-care/ grounds maintenance because it snow remove was so sporadic and I couldn't take anytime to enjoy life during the season which for me was September 1st to June 1st. Yes I made good money but it came at a cost that currency couldn't compensate for.
But kudos to you for wanting no to be your typically entitled college student, it shows great character and work ethic. Have you considered being a sub contractor rather than being a contractor while in school. Yes you'd be leaving money on the table but you won't have to deal with the headache's as an owner,
