Question I need help making the correct choice

Hi Fellow bloggers I need some help? We signed on with 2 companyís A2Z and Cityside now 1 we get paid less there discount for doing clean outs and grass cuts and the other has a flat rate for The same work we donít have enough workers to go with both so can I get some advice they both have treated us real good in the past but A2Zseems to have less inventory but they said they have more work for us now? whats the difference any way with discount VS Rate?
You guys give the best advice

Thats the nature of the business... Lame answer eh? But seriously its feast or famine in any business. I would grow (add a crew or 2) and run with it or pull back and stay small and someone will take your place eventually.

You can swim or you can get out of the pool, but you can only tread water for so long.

I'd do like Wannabe said and find some help so that you can make it thru the feast times and then you'll still be able to get work from both when things slow down.
The industry runs in cycles, you'll be buried for a few months and then you'll wish you could buy a job.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

its a feel thing ,, the tide rolls in the tide rolls out ,, have your " keeper guys " and in the slow times have them work around the shop rehab clean equipment mow your grass and set thing to rights , you also need your " day guys " they come in do day work you pay em fair but dont be surprised if they dont call ya back , also in the good times buy a lunch or four fix the car for them etc etc we are all trying to get by

everytime I have added employees, there always seems to be enough work. I add the guys, thinking I'll keep them on until it slows...never seems to slow back down.
