I was talking to a friend of mine who is very successful LCO mainly commercial. I've known him since the 3rd grade. He lives on the other side of the city. Anyway I called to tell him that I was looking at a big commercial right around the corner from him and wanted to make sure he wasn't bidding on it. He wasn't and said that since its so far away from me if I don't want it to let him know and he'll bid on it. So all is fair, we agreed to never intentionally step on each others toes which is fine by me. He's been a lot help in the past but most important is a true friend. I was suprised to learn however that he has a big resturant in my town. All the times we spoke in the past he never mentioned anything about it. Im not pissed or anything because while this guy is a good friend and has helped me with anything I've even ask for and he don't talk to much about his business. I will say this though, all is fair in this business. In order to get jobs you have to bid and bid and bid.(which is one of my friends advice) I don't have time to check with all the other LCO's I know and like before I bid a job. I only did it this time because it's literally right under my friends nose. The big chain accounts he has I am aware of and I would never approach those companies. I say that realizing I couldn't ever ding his armor. Topsite you must be very successful. No offense but to be able to fling customers around at whim must be nice. My hats off to you we should all aspire to be as successful as you. Just to put it into perspective. How many accounts do you manage?
