Top 10 reasons preservation contractors are clinically insane

10. Work more for less money.
9. Tell them to jump they ask how high.
8. They think everything is under control as they are getting screwed.
7. They bi*ch and complain but do nothing about it.
6. After getting screwed over they say thank you may I have another.
5. Some have problems picking their name
4. They work for slime balls and think they are great.
3. They don't take any advise.
2. They work for slave labor rates while putting out the money to get screwed.

And the number 1 reason is

They think even if the slave driver breaks federal and state laws that they cant do nuttin about it and just suck it up.

Oh, I don't know. My preservation work is pretty good right now. 30 or so Pre-sale grass cuts twice a month ranging from $72 to $150. It's about 6-8 easy days a month netting well over 4k. I can pay myself a thousand a week and sill put a bit away. No employees, no subs, few expenses, minimal headaches.

Leaves plenty of time for fun, and other work.

For some that might be ok?

I want more out of life. I'm not getting out of bed for $1,000.00 a week. I'm not getting out of bed for $1,500.00 a week. I'm not moving too fast for $2,000.00 a week but we are getting closer.

If I want to make $150,000 a year I'll go be a project manager. Let some company have the financial worries and pay for my insurance and workers comp. Take my 4 weeks vacation and do the 9-5 thing.

If I am going to be self employed I want to make money! Serious money.

Nothing personal against you maybe you have a pension or some other source of income? Then I could see an extra $1,000.00 for cutting grass being a great deal.

The thousand a week is earned in 6-8 days

Usually 6 a month. There are no project manager positions in my area that pay 125K, plus they expect you to show up every day, and at the same time too.

I have multiple sources of income. Just picked up an 11K downstroke on a cupcake of a metal roof. Well it's a cupcake for me, no one else wanted it.

The grass pays the bills, the other work is the "I want more out of life money".

When I had a real job as a project manager they were adamant that the work day started by 7am and didn't end until at least 5pm. Funny I rarely started that late or quit that early and never took a lunch. Got to see lots of airports as well.

There are a few advantages to this thing we do.

Congrats on the metal roof. I always enjoy metal roofs not sure why but I think they are fun projects.

Isn't that the truth
2 home inspections about 6 hours work don't even break a sweat not to bad

Tax sale purchase a months worth of sweat then section 8 that baby sweet

Hired gun for lawyers its funny how they try and discredit you.

High end kitchen job pays a couple dollars

Mold remediation job can make a dollar or two.

Relocation services a buck could be made with right clients.

Rehabs and investment services a lot of rich people out here young yuppies are the best.

Commercial building rental location location location and location

P & P oh wait wrong category
