I honestly am starting to believe that I am one of the "crazy" ones. I have been working for myself for the past 8 years. I have worked on 4 projects so far, all in the tech industry, I spend approximately 18-20 hours a day working on my projects, I dream about my projects, I hate going to sleep because I feel like I am wasting time and I wake up and get right back to work every single morning. I never take a day off and if I go on "vacation" I feel like shit, because I know I should be back in my space, working on my projects. I am addicted to tech….

I tried the MSP route and I had plenty of business customers that would ask to add on services outside of our scope of work, but without increasing my fee. I couldn't agree to that. A hotel chain paid me by check 3 months after service was rendered, as they didn't have a corporate credit card and it just kept dragging on too long before I had to pay my overhead costs. I am also amazed that between BestBuy, both Walmarts, OfficeMax, and Target none of them have quality computer components. I have to have a larger inventory simply because they stock cheaply made, but expensive components. I live in Sheboygan, WI so that's likely part of the problem as well.
