ok, before i get banned, i have a question. you know i've said it before, that i think teaching others how to operate the same business that you are operating, is like digging your own grave. of course, like everything else i say, everyone disagreed with me. i wondered if electricians, plumbers, mechanics, and so on share techniques and business strategies with others in thier field. i wonder if the kernel shared his secret recipe with roy rogers, and now i wonder this: recently there was another site similar to this one that opened up, i was invited but chose to remain faithful to lawnsite. i've also been told that other sites similar to this exsist. now my question. do the owners of lawnsite help, give guidence, show every step of the way to the owners of these other sites? is your mentality the same when "it hits home", or are things different? i know you said "you enjoy competition", but do you educate your competition? do u show them every single step, from starting day #1, and then answer any question they may have as they go along? i'm just curious. and kind of trying to make a point. if it's none of my business, just say so. but everyone was so quick to jump on me when i said we were only hurting ourselves by sharing too much info.
