    There's a good article in PRO Magazine (May) on page 15 by Noel Brown on getting your price and being higher than your competition. I see alot of guys posting about price under cutting. <br><p><font size="1">Edited by: PLS

    I agree, it is a good article to read. Last week I gave an estimate to a woman who had approx. 2.5 acres of uneven, cluttered terrain. Had to laugh and walk away when she told me what the past 2 guys were doing her for. Maybe they did not come back for that reason.

    If you set at home and don't even load up, Your breaking even, No expenses, No income. You can go to work and work your ass off for 8 or 10 hours a day and still only break even. I learned a long time ago, that I didnt want to be the cheapest. <p>(The &quot;We'll make it up in volume&quot; myth.) Part of the article. <br>I knew it worked this way, just did'nt know what the actual numbers were. <br><p><font size="1">Edited by: PLS

    Grassroots:<br>It seems that &quot;www.promagazine.com&quot; is a few months behind on the web. I tried a search for the article and got No match.
