    What is everybody goals next year in regards to staying small or get bigger? Do you want to stay small, or do you want to grow?

    I want to add 1 new crew to take some of the load off. I am also hiring a guy in February who has had 8 years of irrigation installation experience. He will help us to grow in this area.

    I think I will change the the direction of my company, continue to grow at a rate my finances can handle, cut some services that I don't profit on that much, try to increase profits and not put so much emphasis on gross dollars.

    can't lose if I accomplish that................

    what does that even mean? I would like to increase my bottom line while staying as small as possible. it has nothing to do with being a scrub. just cuz a guy looks big, doesn't mean its as profitable as a smaller, more efficient, low overhead set up.

    Would like to grow a little not sure how much or how little may just add a couple extra days of cutting with extra guys or maybe even try to fill a whole route not sure yet.
