I think the problem here is your not realizing not all of us want to be huge companies with tons of employees cranking out work and making cash.

Some of us are happy be small time operations handling the work we can.

At the end of the day we are all ending up in the same place regardless of money.

Yea man I agree 100% thanks for chiming in. My main thing is if these guys don't want to grow, as I understand not everyone does, why are the replying to a thread like this and so persistent on getting it shut down.

Why not just leave it for the people who do want to grow?

Even guys who aren't looking to get huge enjoy solid information when it's available.

There is a tone of great information that help people work with high quality customers who pay top dollar and don't wast time. You can grow through efficiency even if you aren't rapidly adding crews. People read a lot of what comes through here both for fun or to pick up a nugget.

A lot more people used to have a skies the limit mind set. A lot of them are gone. We are not guaranteed that how things are today will be how they are in years to come.

Just keep it in mind when you are dropping all your one liners about adding crews and lining up work.

I really don't care about your side gig. How many direct employees work for your construction business?

Just saw you answered in the other thread. You don't know but have a contractor working "for you".


It's becoming more clear all the time.

Me and a family member are partners. He's been a contractor for 25 years. I personally do not hold a contractors license I handle the sales side of things. He handles the work, I bring the work to handle. Those are our roles.

They qualify for what they qualify for. If they don't qualify for decent terms it doesn't matter how many "options" you give them.

Value? That's laughable. You have nothing of substance and when asked who you were or for a website you dodge that as well. And on to you claimed to have not been stumped. But BS on top of BS is hard to stump.

Lol... coming from a guy who can't even keep his lies believable...9 years doing this and you are only 26. Who do you think you are actually kidding?

And if you had a fan club why aren't they posting here? Oh that's right you'll have an excuse for that as well.

Remember that one time when said you weren't going to respond to us trolls... another contradiction.

Dont get your panties in a bunch I couldn't take on another client even if I wanted to id have zero time. I've had the same clients for years. Not selling anything here.

Mabye some of you are mabye some of you aren't. I don't care about how much you make. Not here to argue that. All I do is tell you what I got going on. That's it.
If you knew how to run a business you would be hiring people to help you.

If I wanted to sell you something id post undeniable proof. Videos, recorded presentations, video testimonials from my current consulting clients, revenue tracking, video testimonials from homeowners, pictures, ect

If I wanted to sell you there wouldn't be a question in your mind that everything I'm telling you was accurate.

You sell people on 2 things. Possibility and process. I would prove the possibility of doing stuff my way and I would prove the process to you so there no denying it.

Places like this is not where I find the type of clients id be looking for if I was taking on more.
That's convenient. You could do it if you wanted to but you just don't want to.

Not true at all. You get them qualified and then they can pick what program they want.

I'm telling you what a presentation would look like since someone claimed I'm giving a presentation here. What I described is what a sales presentation would look like if I was actually trying to sell people here something.

But YOU are defiantly a troll so your right I won't be responding to you. Other people were posting real questions which I was answering. I'll post pictures on Monday like I told you I would and that's that.

You don't really understand that term. A troll is there to disrupt. I've asked only legit questions concerning you and your methods. Just because you keep dodging real answers and refuse to provide any proof that you are who you say you are or do what you claim doesn't make a troll, a thorn maybe, but not a troll.

No you said you would do one and be convincing, that's not the same as describing what it would look like.

You don't own the business. Not even half. If you did you would know how many employees.

Not running the jobs doesn't mean you wouldn't know the things a person running a business would know.

I know many people who own businesses that they don't even manage but they know how many employees work there.

Nice try. Good luck getting your consulting gig off the ground.
