    Here's some motivation. Advertising ='s customerss. Customers ='s $$$. $$$ ='s :) . The opposite. No customers ='s NO $$$. NO $$$ ='s :cry: .

    I hate waiting....its a good way to get your foot in the door though. I get most of my work in the spring because people want it done right away, so I find ways to squeeze them in.

    I am glad that I could be of help(LOL).

    I think that Jcs Lawn and Landscape is right they were probably price shopping. I don't know that they have necessarily found someone else yet as it is still early. They may just be using your qoute to compare to the others. It happens. I had a couple of customers that had called last year that did the same thing. They realized that they were not happy with the service that they received from the other guy, so then called me back. You may get people that you did an estimate for last week call you back in May/June.
