My Rant about so many regionals
I am really getting pi**ed off with how many regionals are opening their doors. Wow you have a business and now think you can be a regional. Well guess what if you are subbing from someone else and then taking another cut how is anyone supposed to make any money actually doing the work.
If you want to expand your company, how about going out, hiring people and doing the field work. It seems that all anybody wants to do anymore is sit behind a desk and make money to flip paperwork.
Again I believe in everybody trying to achieve the American dream, BUT at what point does it get stupid. If you are a true national and get the work directly from the bank than fine but don't try to sub work that you are getting as a sub yourself. If you can't handle the work load then don't say you can cover the area but then try to get it done on the cheap by somebody 3rd down on the list.
Yes I have hired some people to do work for me that we couldn't cover. Was it subbing, yes but it was also in my own area not across the country. But I did it more to just satisfy a client. Was it worth it, not really after I got the 100.00 wint from the national minus their 20% I clear $80.00. Did I offer the obscene price of $40.00 for someone else to do it NO NO NO they got $70.00. Yes did I make $10.00 for flipping paperwork on it, sure $10.00 I didn't make 1/2 for nothing.
I guess all I am saying is if you want to sub, pay the right rate. Sorry for the rant.
