I pity those that dont have imported labor. You don't know what you are missing out on.

I think it would be fair to say to that most homeowners have no interests in meeting and talking with the guy cutting the grass. The just want the grass cut. No need to waste time talking with prospects about your great cutting quality and wasting time walking around the yard.

How many jobs(in thousands) did you sell today mr. professional? I saw your photo thread, let me know if you want some advice on how to take it to the next level.

I had a pretty good day today. Net profit - 6k... I know... could be better... Once you get a taste of 10+k net per day(and it doesn't happen often for me) you just can't get enough. Stay thirsty my friend.
