We are growing again this year and busy as heck. We're getting to the point where I am begining to wonder if I should start training my foreman to do estimates for me. Until this point I've done most all of the estimating myself. I will let employees give a quote for lawn care if they get stopped by a next door neighbor or something. But other than that, I've been doing it all. And I like doing it. But this time of year I some times get swamped and don't always have the time to give an estimate to everyone who calls and handle all of my other duties too. So I am wondering if it's better to just answer the important bids and refer the smaller jobs to another company - or would it be better to take my foreman out of his duties (working and overseeing our big jobs) and dedicate more of his time to giving estimates? FYI, just to give you an idea of our size; at this time we have 7 employees. We do all phases of landscaping. We have about 140 lawn care accounts that two crews handle and the other guys just do installs or side jobs.
