I set down last night and made a list of clients I lost this past summer and why they were lost. Trying to figure out a better way to approach it: 1) 60 dollar yard, every week, had for 10 years, client moves to Florida after his wife passes away, new owner will do it themselves. Total- 240 per month. 2) 60 dollar yard, daughter had me doing the yard after her mom passes away, decides her and her husband will do it this year. Total-120 per month 3) 90 dollar yard every 2 weeks problems client from day one, complained about the price, found someone to do it for 50 bucks. Yard was 2 acres and took 3 hours to do and 30 minutes drive time. Total-180 per month. 4) Two 50 dollar yards, mother daughter yards, client from H***, had many post on here about them, had them for 2 years. Both only wanted me to do them 6 months out of the year and come back in spring, yard full of pine trees and straw, I refused, they found someone who would do it, good ridance!! Total-200 per month 5) 45 dollar yard, every 2 weeks, lady passed away, daughter will do herself.Total-90 per month 6) 45 dollar yard, every 2 weeks, lady remarries and moves out of town. Total-90 per month 7) 35 dollar yard, lady found someone to do it for 15! Wanted it bagged everytime, took a hour and half to do. Total-70 per month 8) 60 dollar yard, every 10 days, wonderful client, husband got transferred to Texas, new client, lawyer, never gave me an answer back on doing it and got someone else, cheaper I am sure! Total-120 per month 9) 55 dollar yard, every 2 weeks, older lady, went in nursing home, son was going to let me keep doing but decided to do it. Total-110 per month 10) 45 dollar yard, every 2 weeks, lady was a slow payer, trashy yard, I dropped her. Total-90 per month 11) 35 dollar yard, cheapskape, only wanted it cut when it was waste high, dropped him. I have a commercial account that is 50% of my income that was lost but I talked them into keeping me, showed them it was more financial better for them to let me do it than do it themselves. I have been advertising but have not had the first call. I am proud to say have never lost a yard from a clint being unhappy about my work. I Folks, this is over 1300 bucks worth of accounts in one shot. Not a lot to you big time folks but a heck of a lot to a solo LCO.
