I started advertising hard this year and there is 1 main company in this town, so he doesn't need to advertise much at all, so when I started he called me up and wanted me to subcontract for him. I said I appreciated the offer, but I wanted to create my own reputation, not one for someone else. I did offer to send hardscape work his way if he wanted to refer me when he got booked. Since then no more waving and every type of advertising I did he started doing to the point of wherever I have signs or cards, he has them right on the side of mine. There is plenty of work to go around, but he is now lowballing just to get the jobs. I think its childish but maybe that's just me.
