Thanks for the update - it sounds as though he is doing really well.
Are you still as active with him or have you been able to step back a bit?

A wee update , my Grandson has now been self employed for around 18 month , i wondered at the start if would stick it ? but he has made me proud , he has had the chance of a couple of jobs on the strength of his work , but has turned them down in order to be his own boss , i still go round a couple of times a week and play away , i cut some kindling for him , make some bird tables , nest boxs , wooden planters , just what ever he has an order for , he has bought himself a nice transit van, complete with a tow bar so he can borrow MY TRAILER , ! changed days from when i was giving him a few 's to help him survive , now he gives me a few !! , i still look after his accounts for him , his choice he says " Aye papa your the money man , your so tight i wont get the chance to waste it ! "   so proud of what he has turned himself into , long may it continue .

Good for him  

I love hearing stories of youngsters making a go of it  
So many are happy to sit on there fat arses.

Best of luck to him.
