Same hear. I did 2 shows and realized that it’s not a family friendly job. Build stuff all week, then sell it on Saturday and Sunday? When do you fish? Play with the kids? Sit on the porch? I work damn hard, probably too hard. But I’m done by 4-5 and rarely work Saturdays.

If the shows continue not to work, maybe look at doing wholesale.

I definitely understand what you’re saying.

With one wife, Russian, 5 daughters, 3 of them Russian and 2 Russian-American, working on weekends…wife would say, “wanna bet?. Now that they’re all grown and managing our family business, if I told my wife I was going to work on the weekends…”wanna bet”, it’s our time now.

I still haven’t figured out yet after over 25 years of marriage if that’s a culture thing, wife thing, or woman thing lol.
