I didn't lose a single account due to work quality it was all due to price, people losing their jobs, moving away etc..... oh and one ******* that owned a bunch of my commercial properties that fired me because he was mad at my mom
Oh that sucks man, I hate to hear that, but its happened to all of us, the pricing has been getting so competitive its getting ridiculous, I myself have had to lower my labor rate to obtain some accounts, but still a little profitable but not like it was 3-5 years ago for sure. Yeah its always best to not mix family/friends/acquaintances with business...
