Good for you!I got rid of 25% of my clients this spring that where jerks and late payers.I hope to be up to last years level of work by the end of this year.You are better off without them!!!<p>----------<br>from:Adam<br>AB Lawn Care
 
Hello Bobby:<p>Your better off & I bet you feel better too!<p>For some reason even if you explain exactly what you are going to do for a fee. They still want more?<p>Give them a inch & they want a mile!<p>All they think about is well he wasn't here very long & he won't mind doing this. Then later more & more.<p>They don't have a clue as to how much equipment cost are & all the other things involved in this business.<p>I do not have time for FREE Extras & I do not get paid for them either!<p>----------<br>GrassMaster - Home: www.lawnservicing.com<br>My Start Up Page www.lawnservicing.com/startup/

Hey Phil, I'm a one man show. I alwayse have more work than I can do. I provide quality and charge acordingly. Thats what I like about residentials. I don't believe any one customer can hurt me. My brother on the other hand just lost half his income from one commercial propery manager. they decided to go (in-house)<p>----------<br>Bobby <br>Ft Lauderdale

Phil....A-1....M-16, whatever, wrote:<p>&gt;&quot;But Bobby,<br>That one moaner could have lead to referrals, now she can hurt you on<br>the downside.&quot;<p>Maybe, but from my experience the customers she would have gotten for you would have been carbon copies of herself. They run in packs.....like wild dogs :)<p><br><p><font size="1">Edited by: Keith
 
Good work Bobby. You should never look back<br>when cutting loose a deadmeat residential customer. <p>As a solo operator you only have so many hours to work. Work for only the best people<br>at the highest margin. <p>Let your competition have these losers. That will keep them occupied and out of the high end areas.<p>IMHO residential customers are the work<br>of last resort. Don't take any bs from these brain dead morons the can't shine your shoes.<p>
