Bless this JumboJack so that his contracting skills are strong and mighty
so that he may swing his hammer and ring true and strike with confidence

bless his powers of salesmanship and impartation of the holy spirit in his estimation skills so that he will land the project
and supply sustenance to provide for himself through the dark winter days ahead

Amen

Hey Jack don't pray that you'll get it and don't worry about it. God doesn't have time to worry about construction jobs trust me....lol......kidding.

In all seriousness I really want you to get the job and know you'll do great. One thing you should do is something sports stars do all the time before a Big game. "Visualize" yourself in their house doing the job and feel the feeling you will have when the customer is praising you after final inspection.....This is what will draw the job closer to you.....read up on Law of Attraction stuff....Think and Grow Rich, The Science of Getting Rich or Anything Tony Roberts does.....positive affirmations etc......Also dont worry about getting the job just submit your proposal, answer any questions and move onto the next proposal and most likely it will come back to you........

Its that old saying...If you love someone set them free and they will come back...Well it also works with "things" that you want......dont sweat it and dont hunt them down....I did this for the first two years and bent over backwards goin nuts with pricing and what not and always lost......Now I just know I'm the best and feel it all day long (sounds cocky but it has to be like this), just make sure you are the best.......More education like seminars on new products and techniques, sites like this, books and technical documents always help......

A good informative website that educates a little bit your potential clients goes a long way too... check mine out: http://www.room2roof.com I build my own, not for everyone but i have done Art type stuff since i was a kid and really enjoy it as a hobby......wondering if I should moonlight as a web guy....for shhhts and giggles..

Good luck on the bid!

God knows if I weren't very diverse I would be screwed right now.

I am hoping things are finally making a turn for the better.
