Totally, Ive seen some super shell shocked looks at the price..Nowdays if the custy is wanting a large l/s job, I straight tell them that it will be pricy,,so as to not waste my time..I too have a sh it load of unanswered proposals..Is super frustrating. Im gettin kinda worried because im bidding these jobs in very high income areas...

This year was good. I went from 0 clients to 19 weekly and 2 bi-weekly. I am looking forward to next year!
