    I'd like to thank all the guys who answered the many questions I asked help on! With your advice and the awesome info. on this website I have landed my first account. It's a nice church. Not the best laying land but "I have to crawl before I walk". I quoted on the low end of my price range with the ideas of gaining additional business from the congregation and additional jobs like mulching and pruning from the church. Thanks again for all your help and I can't wait til next Thursday get at it.

    Eztarget,

    No i'm not a member of the church. I just got lucky thru word of mouth. I hope to pick up a few more jobs from the congregation. Don't be afraid to approach potential new businesses like churches. They are awesome advertising pieces for your work. The exposure i get from this one job is tremendous.

    Good Luck-Creek Chub
