I remember almost 20 years ago, my husband and I were was struggling to make a living. He had a college degree in a subject that made it pretty difficult to get a job in that niche market.

He worked on a tree crew as a teen during the Summers and thought he would give tree work a try.  With no money an old truck, chainsaw, and rope, he began asking people if they needed any tree work done.

Of course, I thought he was crazy because he had no real equipment and it was dangerous Be he had knowledge of how to do the job and guts.   When my husband started to show me the money he was making, I got excited!  I learned never to underestimate anyone with determination.
