    Running your own business looks to be the most exhausting thing in the damn world.

    It's all encompassing.

    I got a buddy running a mid sized reno company. Too big to be small, too small to be big and therein lies the problem.

    When you're a big company that's making money, you can afford to delegate and hire professionals to deal with the details. Where the devil lies.

    When you're a tiny company, you can take one or two jobs. Set it up, knock it down, line up the next one. Your overhead is less so not as much pressure to keep the business moving.

    The mid sized companies have got the worst of it. Where they're almost big and have all the pressures of the big company but not the money or manpower to effectively deal with it. Can't rely on one job at a time, always have to overbook yourself otherwise your workers can't work and there's too much to handle for one guy but you can't afford to dump a good salary into a professional to fix it so you hire an OK guy to do it for shit and they move on and only do so well and rinse and repeat ad nauseum.

    I feel for anyone in that position.

    Welp, being sent on my first travel outing for work. Not China , but Latin America. Probably within a week or 2. I asked for 2 weeks to get ready, they kind of gave the look that means tell them a shorter time.... So i said give me 1 week to prepare.

    I need to prepare a power point for training other technicians, which is the purpose of them sending me to other countries. Ive had 3 weeks of training, then 2 to 3 weeks of figuring things out on my own, now i have to go around training other people..... Well at least it comes with a raise.

    Same here. They should pay me extra to see 3D over 2D. Why pay extra for an inferior experience.

    I just got Dredd and I think 3D was included. I'd love to check that out at some point.
