    There will always be copycats. I think part of the key to success is to keep innovating and stay diversified. When I started mulching in my area, I was the only one with a compact machine. Didn't take long for guys to start jumping in to "make a killin' " as one guy told me. I was shocked to see guys offering similar services for $30 and $50 less per hour and promising the world to people.

    The lowballers will never get it. They don't understand business and they don't understand sacrifice. When their machines are broke, they are also too broke to get them fixed. It's frustrating and I'm glad you found a niche. Keep growing and expanding and new lines of revenue will show up. Good luck!

    Finally got the details on the project we are pricing to provide sandbags etc...

    We are pricing to provide sandbags (50# small bags, 80# concrete/sand bags, 3000# Bulk totes & woven reinforced polyethylene covering for the barriers)

    this could be the contract that puts us into the big leagues.

    Thanks Andrew. It's a Lil overwhelming looking at the material they want supplied. If we do get this contract, I will have to find a much larger area to operate out of and will finally be able to purchase a large CTL.

    Well we received an email this morning from Keiwet Infrastructure. Inviting us to join their supplier database in order to bid on several upcoming projects they have going on in our area.

    Can't wait to get the new graphics on my truck so I can get the new company out in the open.

    Way to go Jacob! Any word on a tracked skid steer? Also mabee I am just dumb , but wouldn't mixing concrete (lots of silica) with sand in sand bags that are goin to be placed by a watercourse a bad idea? If one of those broke open here and the concrete got into a water course we would get crucified.

    Lil sneak peek on the new truck graphics. The crescent will be a different blue. It didn't show up right on the screen. I wanted simple and bold.

    I think it looks good. The only thing i would change is the phone number on the passenger window, i would incorporate it into the logo and use the same color scheme.
