Yup I know! I have been a General Contractor (licensed since '06) and I think the economy was conspiring against me when I opened my own business. I ended up going to work for the government until things pick up again. When I left the Army construction work was the only thing I could get. So I worked up from just a laborer, to a carpenter's apprentice, then a foreman, then a commercial construction superintendent and finally passed my states G.C. test (Florida was no joke!). The boom died out just about the time I opened up shop.
