So true for any business or even women. Nothing has treated me better in my career than making a point to say no far more than I say yes. Clients can smell desperation.Sitting in front of clients talking prices when you’ve a packed diary is a much better feeling.
Warren, Somerset County. Still working on getting all the official business stuff (website, signs, official phone other than my cell, etc..), but should be in full swing by the end of this month. Still waiting to give my corporate job the big "see ya", and will milk them until I'm either canned or I just have everything in place to walk away. Send me a PM w/contact info if you'd like to discuss further.Nice! I started doing tree work in New Jersey also. Bartlett in Paterson. Where are you in NJ, and welcome to the Tree House!
If that was my scenario, it'd almost make sense, but I'm middle management w/a better than decent salary. I value my mental state, which is why I need to bail on the corporate BS ASAFP!Sometimes the milking works, so I've heard. They could give you an extra $5-10hr that really tempts you to stay, at least for a month or two to save up for a good getaway.
TBH I wouldn’t have fixed the roof either!
