Looking for change...

Putting a feeler out. 9 years experience. Certified for 2 or 3. Clean class A. 2nd year of fulltime sales/training/management. I also have my own llc and equipment.

Im looking for a change. Looking to work with other preservation minded arborists who actually care. I have fallen out of love with climbing but im certainly open to still doing it. I would like a mixture of sales/consults and field work i.e. rcx, phc, pruning etc.

I am not a businessman so running a whole show turned out poorly for me. Im open to pay structure and even business structure. Coop? Partnership? Small company ready to grow? Davey bartlett and savatree dont bother i dont wanna hear "you didnt sell enough fert this year"

Fairly disheartened with the industry as of late and if i cant find a way to be happy doing it i need to get out before i get any older. Located in st. Paul MN cannot relocate at this point. Shoot me a message here with any inquiries

Might be worthwhile to seriously consider a new path, like you say. Everyone is different of course but from my personal experience once you get that feeling, it's over and quality will steadily decrease. Maybe like when you got that feeling about your girlfriend, it was over, but you stayed in it, because maybe she had a sweet ass, and you just didn't know what else you would do, but it just always got worse, until one night you had to grab your dog and a handful of clothes and jump out the back window while she slept, never to return...
:LOL:

I was more the guy to pick my clothes up off the lawn cause i already moved on and howd you know im an ass man? Like my dad taught me dont quit one job until youve got another (probably shouldnt have used that in my love life). Trees are still fun some days but the dilemna is huge pay cut to start over in something i may hate so im willing to take a paycut for something new where i may be happy in trees again. I feel like nothing else has the variety of people places and things that trees have to offer so im reluctant to leave. I suppose i dont know until i try.. trees will always be here.. Hopefully

I mind dont the incohesive banter i read oakwilt and spyders posts (just kidding) just hate to see another tree guy disappear. Where is your shift to? Ice cream server? Homesteading? Oil tycoon?

What would you do different to make the whole show work for you? In my area I see new tree service start ups everywhere you look. I sometimes ponder why not me... how many of these shows will make it through the winter or next economic down turn. Certainly being part of a well established outfit has its benefits. Why have some of you guys jumped ship to swim on your own and or sold out to work for the big guns?

Gotta go slow and focus on what you truly want to do. Around here you have to do it all which turns you into a tycoon of sorts. Employees, equipment, marketing, billing, etc. You lose sight real quick of the actual thing you set out to do in the first place.

Oh yes and I hate money. Just make enough to feed my cute family whom I love dearly. Week by week. No savings no house nothing. I am happy. Very little personal posessions. We own 1 frying pan and one saucepan. Few plates and plastic cups...never go out to nice restaurants but we spend loads of time together. My wife is a teacher. You get the idea....
