    This year is nuts. Trying to stuff more on top.... like the neighbor kid jumping on the garbage can on garbage day.... Continually piling more pokers in the fire... under promising over delivering.

    I had to stop this guy from pruning.... I was about to fire him... he was pissing me off and affecting me... taking up my time supervising him... And fucking always had an excuse.... Then I realized.... give him a few warm emails, cold calls and a pricing schematic..... and fuck off. Shit, he redeemed himself with an a-z job for 1200.... says he has a 4K and a 2.5k job on the hook....waiting to yank. So, I’ve been on crews for a long time... and I feel I can read strengths and soul... and then just “get in where you fit in” I sell people on the phrase if we win, you win, I win, we keep going getting better.... buy in is huge. Honestly my client smile is waning.... they see a burnt fuck you kinda guy... it’s awful.

    Training is key. You’re gonna love the CS pants. Last week I gave a client’s voicemail to a new guy... He’s a yes man with the gift of gab and wants to learn trees.... He scored the job and scheduled it for yesterday... he came back at 1pm with the truck empty and a 1200 check for the job. I think I’ve found a millennial sales guy to run around and meet random bid people..... Feels good.

    The shop mech said the lower end of my 200 is toasted and not worth fixing. I guess he means the gears and stuff...?.. is this true? It also has a cracked gas tank... Some MF left it under the truck.

    Good input. Thank you. Yes. CA was meant as a standard basic arb cert that covered everything.... Many many people believe it to be the end all be all test... though many also understand it's a very basic level of standardization... It's something to jump off of into other things more specific... Specification or prescription pruning could be a new cert... That would state you know how to prune... That's all anyone does to a tree is prune... some people prune them to the ground.

    How would you all accept an ISA Pruning credential? Something standardized.... seems most tree guys love gear and removals. What about pruning and tree preservation?
