That's a start. Keep plugging away. With hard work, smarts and a little luck, you'll make it.
By the way, how many responses did you get from those 3300 contacts? In other words, how many bids did it take to get those 5 jobs? Oh, and are these one time jobs or seasonal?

You can't charge extra because it takes you twice as long to do the job because you have crappy or outmoded equipment.

And, if they don't pay, put a shovel upside their head.
