You guys in the rocky mountain region

Lowballing season is upon us, think about what you are doing.

You are either ill prepared to provide the service, you're shooting yourself in the foot and everyone else who offers services professionally. Or you're doing one hell of a job but guess what, you've just set your going rate that much more difficult to turn a profit.

Look at the big dogs and understand why they charge what they do. I guarantee you it's not just so they get a week vacation in Florida.

When the going rate is $70+ and you're coming in at $25-30 you would get much faster results by just putting a rope around your neck. Don't take my word for it, try it.

I know... no one seems to understand the concept of devaluing a market. It seems like harmless competition at first but in the end it ruins it for everybody.
