I have not made any money yet, but that's not an issue. My hardwork and what little marketing I've done is paying off. This company is a very niche service. Our first demonstration was two weeks ago, now I have over $100k in proposals to finish by Thursday. Plus the company name is getting out there.

Biz will come Krazy. Seems to me this is the type of business that you would have to stock pile filled bags because the calls will come at the last minute when the water is rising.

Well here We go. Submitted 3 proposals this morning. One for an order of 2k palletized bags, one for 20k palletized bags and the one to clean up the mess and sort through the 400 pallets of bags the parish already has.

Got a call today to verify some info, on the proposals I submitted for pre-positioned sandbags. Was told we will receive a letter next week about signing contracts. Hopefully this is the big break coming!
