Well after weighing the pluses and minuses, also talking with friends and family I left my full time sales job and I've devoted my time to be in the HAunt Tactics shop full time. I have 2 years left of college so that and HT will be my main focus. It's time to make a serious run at this. I couldn't have done it without the success of this years TW and the encouragement of my friends in this industry. Here goes nothing!!

That's is what I want to hear!

good luck.
Just get you guys health insurance.

Get good ventilation in your shop. We have several ceiling mounted fans that will slam doors shut, and side mounted fans where we run foam, fiberglass, and welding.
And always wear respirators (Organic vapor) when using urethane foams.
I am not recommending. I am demanding;)
And yes, I am completely serious.

We in this industry, vendors and buyers alike, put our health at risk everyday to do what we love.
I will be happy to say I died doing what I love..... But I would rather NOT go sooner than I have to.

Thank you all for the support. It's things like this that solidify everything in your mind that you did the right thing. I couldn't juggle everything anymore and somthing had to give. I love What we do at Haunt Tactics and couldn't imagin walking away from that. We here at HT owe it to this industry to keep in good standing with order completion and great customer service, with everyone in the shop now i believe we can keep that going. we've hit our stride and 2013 is going to blow your mind. Thanks again.

On Facebook under the heading "You know that you grew up in Mount Carroll" others were posting about childhood and teenage years and some were wishing they could return to all of that "Fun"!
I posted that I have had much more fun Since high school,maybe because of the fun and goofy things I do on a regular basis as I entertain people in the Ravens Grin Inn... and that is why I am open every night of the year! I LIKE WHAT I'm Doing!
Go for your calling, and call yourself "Happy"!
(It sure beats the broken record of "Shoulda-Coulda-Woulda")
