this isn't about me personally. my argument is much, much more general than that. it's for a guy who might be thinking about starting his own business and comes to this site to see how to go about doing things. there's all these threads full of posts from guys saying, you have to wear polo's and khakis for estimates, you have to use this brand because its the best, you have to do work this way or that way. so many guys put there opinions down like there facts or like this is the only way to do it. guys like me need to speak up so these newbies will see, well you can do it this way or you can do it that way, they both work. to improve something is to make it better because the current way is not working as well. that would not be the case with me and how i dress/look when doing estimates. i'm perfectly happy with how many estimates i land. i don't expect to land 100% of my estimates. anyone who does that is doing something wrong. i land what i need and want with work. so why fix something that isn't broke?
