The slowest time of the year

By at March 11, 2016 | 4:24 PM | 1 Comments

Taking advantage of the slowest time of the year. The absolute slowest time of the year. I suppose one can look at it in two different ways. On one hand you've got no work and the money that you stashed away can only last so long so you're under pressure to find more work.

If you absolutely have to use an address like 1 Main street for the town that you live in. In fact, use anything besides a PO
