I know where you are at, I am there now, going through the same thing. I started out being only a hardwood floor guy, started in the summer at 16 and
17, then full time after graduation. Went through apprenticeship, worked my way up to full partner in the business. Was going good until the crash. I
wish I had the answers for you, that would mean I have the answers for myself as well.
Since the crash I have been expanding and expanding myself, learned tiling, framing, roofing and sheetrocking so far. Still not enough really, just
hoping it will pay off eventually. Endgame plan as of now is to learn how to do a lot, then I can be a foreman, and eventually a builder. That is what
I am shooting for at least.
Being broke for so long has taught me a lot, that much I am thankful for. All the offtime I have, I spend improving something about myself. Got back
into art, martial arts and fitness for example. Also started writing and thinking a lot more. I wish you the best of luck, I hope it all works out for
you in the end.
