There are those on this site with the age, skill-set, stamina, an knowledge to know profits from just spinning your wheels to pass green stuff through your books, and it would be advantageous to those just starting out in the business to swallow your pride and listen to these guys. We're all never too old to learn a new trick in this business...that's what we're here for.
For those of ya'll that believe in the banks propaganda..."We'll give you a higher volume" if you give us a lower price"... that is just not true. Do the numbers it just doesn't add-up. Increased work load means increased costs, and if you’re not putting' 20%-30% away after those costs on every job, it's a loser.
I understand in these trying times something is better than nothing, but it's not because eventually over time your bank accounts will dry-up and then it's too late. I turn away non-profitable work every day, do I still have clients,… I do. Get good at what you do, and as the scabs fall by the way side, you'll get the calls, and this time it's on your terms, which is the way it should be.
