what role do you play in the business?
:05 this is my dad’s independent contractor. He’s self employed. He be doing this for 20 plus years. Like general manager. His job is he basically do everything: painting, light plumbing work, gardening work, whatever needs to be done to survive in America. Me, by role playing his son, I do whatever I can to help him out. Making the job easier for him. When you’re by yourself, it’s a lot of work. Gotta mow the lawn, load the area, edge the lawn, it’s just so much work. But me, I’ve been doing it since I was 12 years old, since I was a little kid, so :42 I have a lot of experience to do all of this, so I just making the job go faster. :46 When you’re by yourself, it take an hour/hour and fifteen minues. :50 with two people doing it? 30-40 minutes. $30, you know what I mean? Somem place $50, some place $20. It all depends on how big the house is.
