DONTs: Don't lowball. Price competitively, but there's really no need to go below market value. There's more work available than you could ever do yourself. Don't do average quality work. Go above and beyond what you see others doing.
Thanks Caddyshack. What is the average for Como for a weekly/bi-weekly? Also, I currently have a 2 door car that I plan to use initially as my "work truck." Do you think it would seem unprofessional if I pulled up in my car and popped the trunk to pull out my equipment or do you think it would be a better idea to invest in a $2k-$4k S-10 or something. What are your thoughts?
I see a lot of posts on here about not going into debt when first starting, but I also know that the way customers view your company has a lot to do with the possibility of growing.
Thanks for the previous advice.
