    I had 2 months off with Hurricane Irma and it sucked. Have 3 months operating cost now put away since and going to keep that going.
    Was stressful and a wake up call.

    Yes. Raised about 5k. I got alot of other help from friends and family. Thankfully about 60% of our income is janitorial that my wife can handle. We were rocking things in our little town 7 days a week. Just getting ready to finally hire help.
    Now my wife works about 30 hours a week and I'm a disabled bum

    My injury, hopefully my only injury I'll ever have, was back in '97 when I was a stupid kid. It knocked some sense into me and now that I'm missing a little part of my brain (hopefully my stupid part), I have some disability insurance, funds to support the fam for a couple months, and insurance coverage up the wazoo.

    But, just like Ross said, this is no different than having a job. If you're out of work, you're out of work. Prepare the best you can and think before you move

    My wife will cover all of the bills again, just like we originally set up in the beginning.

    If I'm bad enough, they pull plug she finds a another guy and moves on....

    Life isn't Easy nor tolerable for the most part....


    But we Do it our best

    I plan on hitting my dad up for a loan if calamity strikes. I have been meaning to get disability insurance. Think I'll look into it. We have very little debt so my wife could get a job to cover the bills. Right now she subs once or twice a month at a school, but she could go back to work at the hospital where she used to work.

    Have no idea.. keep in mind that i have been working on this for long time and would like to see this go out. Even if i dont make anything off it, that okay. I did something that i enjoyed. Who knows with enough patience and contents, my bro and i will get enough following to make money. So how much i would make...? Maybe none, maybe a lot.

    It's a great question ... One that should be asked looong before the event occurs.



    Grew up in a household short on cash. When I started , first thing my folks worried about was " what if you get sick or hurt?"



    If it happens , I'll just catch up on Netflix and play guitar

    We helped a guy out last year, the only other decent O/O in our town broke his leg in a ski accident. I would hope he’d return the favor, but a couple of our employees might do okay without Scott. We will test this when he has carpal tunnel surgery.

    If Scott dies, the liquidation of the business assets will be in Jim Pemberton’s capable hands. I don’t know anyone I would want to sell the business as a whole to because they’d have to live up to Scott’s standards and if the business couldn’t continue with the same drive and passion and attitude, I’d rather it fold. Jim will come up, help me inventory the garage, and set up a big sale for you suckers :)

    Whatever he has on himself. I didn’t have any input on that. I don’t want him to die. But we all need to be prepared, don’t we? No one’s tomorrows are promised. He keeps saying the arsenic I put in his food will catch up to him eventually...

    If he dies, what am I going to do with a garage full of carpet cleaning equipment? As of today, there’s no second truck guy who’s trusted to run a truck 100% on his/her own, so keeping the business going without Scott wouldn’t be feasible. I’m not planning, just participating in the thread.
