Seeing as another 6 months or so has passed guess updates are due,
This year started at a blistering pace for me. Then the oil slump hit and one of my customers customers who does a lot of wood chip burners customers switched from the agro of burning wood back to burning oil, cheaper and less effort! Thats kinda had a knock on effect and created some spare capacity and so im not getting much work from there which use to indirectly account for about 1/4 my income.
That aside everything else is a little slower but stable this month. Have enough work to show a profit, but not as much as i would kinda like. Then again, i have kinda spent the last couple of years pretty backed up work wise. Currently theres enough definite work to see me through a good month or 2 as yet, but this years looking like it will be a bit quieter than last year which was pretty good really all told. So i spose a stable outlook looking forwards right now, probaly not the growth i was hopeing for but its still early in the year,
I also hope to take on some proper premises this year, but have no idea when its actually going to be, but it will finally give me a lot more space and the ability to buy material direct and in qty (at least qty by my needs!!) Weather theres then going to be a enough work to really show a profit doing that i don't know, but its something i need, hopefully it will unlock some doors and at least break even.
