This past January a guy calls me and says he knows me from 25 years ago (although I don't remember him) and says that he heard I was in the lawn cutting business. He is also wanting to start this and wants to know how business is going. If it's worthwhile or not. Thinking that since he lives 10 miles away in another town that he won't be in my area, I tell him some of my strategies that work for me. He also says that if he knows of a property that I'm doing, he won't pursue it. (You know where this is going, don't you) Anyways, I had a contract last year for 13 group homes for a local care giving company, and guess what? Right, he is bidding against me. He even called me to tell me this. Then he has the nerve to suggest that if he wins it, do I want to do half of them BUT if I win it, will I give him half. Two problems here. IF I win it, no way will I give away what I already had last year. And if he wins it, why would I want to do them for the lower price that he obviously bid. (I know what it actually takes to do them, he is only guessing and too low at that). This contract also calls for fertilizing 2 times per year. I know that he is not licenced (required in Ontario) for that and will be doing it himself. What would you do?
