    my original plan was to retire in 2014 when I turned 62, my plan now is to start collecting SS later this year and transfer my business to my 2 key employees and become a part time employee until they get their own licenses

    I still don't see any correlation between what you've said here and 2008.

    I drained the most in 2011-2012, this past year 2016 has been my best since 2006/7, best years I ever had were 1985-1988, 2008 was not a bad year for me personally, but its effects continued to plague my industry till 2015

    I left working in construction in 2009 for a job at a municipality. We had good years from 98-06ish (I graduated in '94, and had been working part time with the family business since '91). There were some slow time mixed in, but it really turned to shit in late '07.

    I would also argue that while many people who attend community college my not be the best and the brightest in the traditional sense, they are some of the hardest working and most driven people I've been around.
    As a college professor from industry and a blue collar family, I'll take driven and gritty over bright, soft and entitled all day long...

    for the most part, my business is related to construction, but in 2008, I landed a couple of large conservation easement surveys that kept me going right into 2009, other than that, from late 2007 to mid 2015, the largest part of my business was designing replacements for failed septic systems and waterfront property permitting, I did more new construction related jobs in 2016 than I did in the previous 6 years combined

    True. It hit commercial construction around Boston hard '07 - '11. Those were the leanest years and the worst projects in a long time.

    I'm an independent engineering consultant in the medical tech field, and 2008-2009 hit my industry hard as well.
    I had to make some major changes to my business model and approach, and customer base, to keep going.

    Education. My industry revolves around knowing that people fuck, have always fucked, and will continue to fuck.

    Funny enough, that's something that Trump's GoP doesn't seem to understand. Abstinence? Really?

    I'm the best at fucking myself. Nobody fucks them-self as good as I do. I have endorsements from 26 generals and 130 lieutenants stating how good I fuck myself.
