Second problem is people get too caught up in growing their business they take on people at less then their regular price and keep on customers that should of been dropped a long time ago.

A good business can not be built on bad customers.
So true. We are definitely struggling with cash flow problems as well because of that. Indeed, it cannot. Will be doing some heavy "weeding" over the winter to make our operation based on better customers, bigger size is not worth the headaches.
