    For those of you who haven't I would highly advocate reading Mike G's artlces he has provided us. No I'm not kissing ass but there is alot of tried and true things in there for us to learn from. Learning from others mistakes or positve roles is the easy way of learning.

    I am going to put together a check list to include with my new client packet. Right now I have a basic client data sheet I use for all prospects... a few pages for notes... a page for materials it will take to perform the project. Now I will include a step by step method starting with the initial contact and ending when I enter the client into my scheduling software post install or maint visits.

    Just when I thought I was getting going my to do list for the company is at an all time high.

    www.gambinolighting.com Then after the intro enter the site. There is a button at the top for articles. Many many great articles for contractors and some aimed towards homeowners. I suggest reading both sets and making what you will at them. He is simply sharing his opinions and whats worked for him over the past 17 years. He obviously has nothing to gain by providing these for us and is doing so to help us become more successful and promote the industry in a quality orientated direction.

    maybe we just opened a can of worms for Mike M. Alot of them will work for us but I am worried about the difference in markets... One trend I see here is alot of people from richer areas are discovering just how nice the south is. They are building homes in all price ranges like crazy here. Seems every day I see more and more upscale things going on. I think this is good news for my future.

    yeah, opening your mouth around here tends to get it shut quickly by someone else on the forum- but keep chiming in Mike M, some of the best ideas come from new guys to the field. I may jump on that hybrid bicycle yet.
