    So earlier this year. My boss asked if I was willing to do all the bids for installs for him because he was busy with other things going on. I said sure

    Like most companies we get a high amount of people inquiring about installing systems during spring time. Our company more focuses on the service and repair aspect. We only do about typically 10-15 installs a year. Except for 2013 we already have done like 17 installs.

    So I did a bunch of bids, and landed a whole bunch. For the past couple weeks I've been installing about 2 systems a week ranging from 3-8 zones. I have a couple more weeks of solid installs booked up already. It's actually kinda cool to self generate my own work to the company..

    Anyways I know there are a few companies out here that more focus on just the install process and I wanted to give props out. It's a lot of work!!

    Good thing tho i've already dropped 15 pounds these past few weeks .

    Hope that wasn't a promotion without a raise.

    props to you Mitch, from 10-15 annually to 17 this year, thats amazing. your salary should have effectively doubled.

    If it didn't, leave, but dont close the door, that way you can waltz back through it. :walking:
