Couldn't have said it any better PROCUT1. That's all there is to say.

I'll bid $19,000! I should definately get the job.

Really though, although common sense, this is the best post on lawnsite.

And I thought this site was all kids. 1st thing to know before any bid is to know your cost. Great post Procut!

How do you do it Procut? I would love to have the time to put out a detailed post like that but I can barely find time to answer the simplest of questions lately. Right now I'm between bites on my lap top at a deli. Thanks for your time, they should put you on the payroll.

Well a couple ways...lol

I write more for myself than others. Its my therapy really. The work im doing is pretty repetitive so I catch a break and go off on my rants....Thats why my writing style is not "term paper" format. I think faster than I can type...ha

A lot of times I write to just clear up things in my own head and apply those things to my business.

I remember those days now that you mention it but it has been a few years since I had that kind of time but I actually remember typing the same post. Not breaking down how to calculate your costs. The one about writing for me and just sharing it with others.
