What's on my mind is getting the job done as fast as humanly possible and moving on to the next one so I can get them all done before winter really sets in.
Since you are twice as good as everybody you likely bid on it at $30.00 an hour but do it in half the time.
In otherwords you likely do not quote $60.00 an hour for general labor but you earn $60 because of production.
