It's Spring again and all the new faces are showing up. You know who I'm talking about. Your seeing the sign pop up right about now. The new trucks and custom designed logos that you've never seen before. You know someone got bought up. Usually some kid just out of college with the quick talking salesman approach. Usually gone in three years when they finally get out of that underbidded condo contract. This thread is for the companies that have held tough over the years. Big or small, no matter. The companies that have learn the skills needed aquired only through experience and are still here. O.k assuming it's a kid is wrong, I've seen more mature individuals throw money around, do cr@ppy work, and disappear. The way to grow in this biz is to start off small and humble and grow through experience, not buy your way in with a "buisness plan".
