As the saying goes, "If it was easy, everyone would be doing it." Sometimes the best education is the school of hard knocks. I agree with on that it good to have these message boards. It is kind on like sitting around the proverbial "watering hole" and talking shop.

Reno, I am the guy that handles all the business for our two man shop, and as you say it is a job in itself. I never dreamed there would be so much work involved in keeping the business end up, compared to all this the regular sparky stuff is easy.

I agree 100%. Handling the business of a 4-man shop is a lot more work than being a sparky. I'm finding that staying one-step ahead of the crew by keeping the schedule on-track is probably the biggest challenge.
