Thumbs up Namfs

I appreciate all of your input on issues that we have run into. I am looking at joining the above named group and using their "academy" to get certification. are any of the people that use this forum members? What has been your experience in joining and have you seen any benefits? I am looking at the benefits versus costs, and if it's truly worth the initial output of money.
Also, we have joined Home Advisor and have received more contacts, have done 6 plus estimate and we are starting a job on Tuesday with three more in the queue....any thoughts? If you want to see what they offer, let me know and we can give you our contact.

Joining them will get your name on the list and you will get contacted by companies looking for your services. Being a member, imho, means little else. Some of the biggest issues contractors have had in preservation has been with companies who are members.

I see everything as the number of grass cuts I have to spend to pay for it. So, ask your self this question. How many lawns do I have to cut to pay for it? Now, how many days do you have to cut grass to cut that many lawns? Yep, you are gonna be cutting grass for about a month just to pay for it. Now how worth it is it?

It is not worth 1/12th of my lawn cut income to me.

Your money would be better spent on a local Chamber of Commerce membership to develop local business contacts.

Do good work and keep searching for customers. Research anyone you find out about here with the search feature and ask questions.

I would recommend establishing a non P&P customer base, such a private residential lawn maintenance and small commercial accounts. They pay faster, better, do not cut your bids and they are actually happy to see you.
