What's up everyone? I actually created this account months ago and just saw that we need to introduce ourselves. I'm from NJ and got into plumbing in 2008 during the recession and have been working mainly commercial new construction. I've tried getting out of the business by dabbling with college and anything else and ended up getting hooked up with a good mechanical contractor and I'm back as a plumber. I finished a 5 year apprenticeship, worked a few years as a journeyman, and got my NJ Master Plumbers License a year and a half ago. I've always entertained the idea of starting my own business. I would like to get into the residential service niche although I have only worked in commercial new construction/high-rises. We'll see.
