if you yourself can not do a job,( or don't want to do a job) and you give it to a friend who does, do you expect a finder's fee, or % of the job? i'm not talking subbing it out. you just give them a paver job, sod, planting, etc. what % would be expected if any? that goes both ways, if someone gives you the job, what would you expect to give them? I've given a friend a paver job, and have more on the way. he told me he's going to throw me $$$$, and to send them all his way. I don't do pavers. he's happy, i'm happy, my customer will be happy. and i don't lift a finger!! so I'm happy again.
