    Very big plans but I will wait till Bush is elected before I act on them when I plan on growing with 10s of thousands of dollars in new equipment I want a friend in the white house not some one that will do away with my deductions.

    my goal is to increase my customer base by 2/3. Big challenge ahead, but I already have about 20% of those 2/3 setup.

    how badly do you want them to be exactly residential and commerical accounts? What if you got 65 residentials and no commericals? It also really depends on your area. I feel that if you stick to that goal and REALLY work HARD at it starting right now, I feel that by next spring you can have your goal achieved.

    i know that commercial accounts are a crap shoot.... more then likely you'll keep your residentials... commercials may come and go.... but i sure do like the money from commercials....

    Im shooting for about for a 40% increase in business, whether it be 1 more account or 30. Although 30 would be better I dont want to much riding on one job. Best time to get prime accounts for next year is to start getting them now.

    I plan on going full time as well next year. This year part time I had 35 homes and 3 commercials, already have 2 hotels for next year. Plan on 5-6 large commercials, and 60-70 homes by myself with 1 part time perhaps. Have to go from 40k to 125-150k gross. Also just bid on a complex with 10 building for next year at 125k, so if I get that, my brother in law is also quitting and we are both going full time partners, and that along with this year's base and growth would put us well over 200k gross
