Yes. Sole proprietor. Much of my work (of late) had been warranty service work for large developers, but most went bust. I'm hustling for work like many others. Actually, I'm finding larger (prime) plumbing companies who are interested in using licensed plumbers with experience, tools and truck, as 1099 employees for misc service/overflow work. I like that arrangement. I can't afford the shop overhead, insurance, and advertising expense they have, and they like getting an experienced, licensed journeyman with truck and tools at a very reasonable hourly rate. I also service some regular customers, but most are tightening belts/deferring repairs & remodels around here.
