How do you think work gets sold? Just show up and give them some random price. No you look at the tree and estimate time and what it takes to get the job done. How are you going to do that if you have no experience even doing the work? There is no book formula for this. Don't you get that? All this business process talk is useless without knowing what you are looking at. Can you please explain how you will get around that cold hard fact.This is exactly the content and response I was looking for. No attacks, just sound advice and guidance on what to do.
The concensus seems to be to do one of two things:
I dont mind working 70 hours. Im working close to 60 right now trying to work my full time job plus my business. I am single so dont have responsibilities so I can focus weekends on all of this.
- If I want to do the job first, its best that I go out and work for someone for a bit so that I can learn the basics of climbing, rigging, felling, etc.
- If not climbing, go out there and find a good climber, pay them great money and focus on the business, selling jobs, etc.
Thank you man. I appreciate this advice.
