    As i was driving out to a couple of my furthur away accounts i was thinking of how much $$ i would be saving if i dropped this one and picked up some other account in a neighborhood where i have several jobs.

    Has anyone ever swapped jobs with another LCO? Have like a week trial period and go from there or something???

    I have given ones away that did not fit into my schedule properly.

    I wonder what the customer will think. My customers pay for me and not someone else. Just a thought.

    another LCO i used to work for did that on occasion. Sometimes the swap stuck, sometimes both clients picked new people.

    Either way you lowered your expenses and drive time.

    Sometimes he would sell the account. I don't know what he got for them, but I know I wouldn't pay more than a months revenue.
