A fool and his money.....
I am recalling a converstaion with a competitor early 2012. He went ON and ON and ON about how he is expanding statewide. He was setting up opperations to the North and once that was operational, he was moving East, then South, then West. He was projecting that Volume would lead to Riches.
At the end of 2012, I ran into that same competitor and asked him how his year went and most importantly his expandation statewide. He said, that the volume was there but the pricing was NOT; he lost a good bit of money due to chargebacks, reassignments and lost clients. He ended up back at square one--operating in a 50 mile radius around his office.
I am not saying that HE is a fool, but his actions were indeed foolish.
