Thanks For all the Helpful Insight's, You guys are awesome!!!

Just want to give a loud and motivated Thanks to all the members on here. I have been running my company officially now for 3 months under the eyes of the gov't. With all the helpful tips you all have posted I have just recently got my 75th weekly customer and numerous commercial contracts. I have went through multiple sets of equipment upgrading due to rapid growth. I owe it all to you all and your helpful knowledge.

Thanks again
Z.P. SGT/USMC

Not all that equipment. Most idiots dont have $70,000 laying around or the credit to finance it in this tough credit economy. Anyone who thinks getting accounts rapidly from advice of a stranger in a different market with unique circumstances is an idiot though.

No, I don't think every ones situation is the same, and I know different marketing techniques work in certain areas, but I'm always open to hear others results and what they used. I'm a curious guy always wanting to learn. If a person is successful then I know I can learn from them, if he can get that many accounts that quickly then he is doing something right.

Or he is a lowballer and in a few years when he wears his new stuff out and goes broke........ Oh well.
