The funniest thing I have ever encountered is I met a 50 million dollar net worth client on a commercial property he was renovating.... and he was wearing $25 used Goodwill loafers.... but then again he had his own private jet.

If all you guys think I am full of sh!t, just PM me. I just want to help you if I can, hell you might be more successful than I am and I might learn something from you. I am one of you. I have been beat the hell down my whole life, and I "think" I have found the key. The only reason I reason I mention dollar amounts is that I know you can do it. I am a college drop out(well I was making more money than my professors when they personally demeaned me) I really don't feel comfortable putting my company website or info on the interweb because I have invested 20k on SEO marketing and 20 years of branding my company.

I'm confused..... which is it, 3 mil or 1 mil

If I wanted to "take it to the next level" I'd talk with another company near me..... 80 employees, 1.4 mil in maintenance jobs alone.....

I hate to break it to you friend, but there are WAY bigger fish out there than you, and you sound very willing to help us "lowballers" from the statements you've made

I have two companies, only 1.1 mil in landscaping and 1.7 in another company. I personally know a company near me with 120 employees and a 5 million dollar gross... but he is broke. He had to turn back in his Mercedes because he couldn't make the payment.
