My Father always said the cheapest man in town is usually the first to go out of business!! You can have more work that you can get to each week but if you loose money on every job it gets you no where but broke and tired. Been there, done that. Its took 12 years to get my construction business to really get going. Gotta make a name, get the work, realize expenses and then finally make a profit. I am trying to shorten that learning curve in my sawing business. Its hard but you have to find all the details that cost you your profit and then correct inefficiencies and charge appropriately. It aint easy but you gotta do it if you want to do more than cut for fun!! JMTC Brian
Opportunity is missed by most because it shows up wearing bib overalls and looks like work.
