First of all, I can sure tell that winter season is here. Many of the threads are being supported by "GREAT" professionals and outstanding comments that can be used as a source of improvement. Thank You. My question regards growth. As I scan the threads, many of you are speaking about items you must complete to grow your business for the next year. I, myself, have been all over the spectrum from multiple crews, employees to a two-man operation. I no longer look at growth as a focus. This market is so easy to penetrate for a newcomer, growing a large company for selling purposes is out of the question. I focus my growth as "net" growth, or growing my profitability. I accomplish this by shopping insurance companies, seeking better methods, buying more efficient equipment, keeping my overhead low and pulling tips from this website. Thanks again to everyone that takes the time to post their knowledge on this site. My question to each of you, is: are you growing by adding clients, or fine-tuning your processes for improved profitability.
