It’s been a tough year for the coal industry and the communities that depend on it. Can Wyoming adaptt than the other.

With a small business, the profit margin is razor thin.

Prior to the Recession, when work was completed, payment would be received promptly from my clients. Since the recession, you know there was still a fair bit of work in the shop, but… I provide a luxury service. What I provide is not a necessity. And so I would be the last person on the list to get paid and often times, a project would be complete and instead of getting the final payment, it’d be, you know, a small payment here, a small payment a month later, which is very difficult to run a small business on that.

It allows me to do what I love to do and get paid for it. It’s very rewarding. Certainly, I lead a very rich life. I can assure you of that.
