Well thats a dip in the deep end.
Imagine as newlyweds buying your first home and trying to remodel it while desperately broke, but knowing you will be there the rest of your lives.
Now, consider the weird guy at work with the ankle monitor that only talked to you and no one else; he dies and leaves you his shack of a house in the hood and 50k with instructions to renovate it and sell it, with the proceeds going to the IRS. You can keep anything out of the 50k that you don't spend on the repairs. 50K won't touch the place using contractors but every tweeker that fogs a mirror is in line to paint, side, roof for pennies on the dollar. Of course they rip you off and the work is crap but if it passes code then you can bank.
Two jobs this month for mold remediation were $7400 and $7600. If it were thru Safeguard then I suppose it would have been $75 and $125. Get your certs and then start taking the jobs they were trying to serve to you.
I would not have accepted those orders from SG even when I was starting out, and they have used the formula you mentioned for years to rake in your profit for themselves for more than just "discoloration."
