so , I`m usually juggling 3-4 current jobs , and then lately , I`ve got about 10 others coming up,
I`ve always had a hard time predicting when these jobs will start.
my jobs are 1 day to 3 weeks long , or longer
I only have 2 full time guys , plus me physically working about half the week , along with bidding , and co ordinating the rest of the week.
so I don`t know what to tell clients when we`ll start ,
I`m not a big fan of taking a deposit , and saying " see you in 3 weeks" , so allot of times , I tell them they are on schedule.
I make it a point , to stick on a job till we are done ,
but of course, each job has extras, so they usually run longer ,
so I end up constantly calling , and pushing back clients .
since I don`t take deposits early , they can walk.
I just don`t know how else to do this .
small jobs make you run allot, , but I get a steady stream of them from all my referrals.
yes , I`d like to have more help , but it truly is hard to find the full package of , a guy who is a quality carpenter , with truck , and tools ,is very clean, and good with clients.
and that added guy or 2 would have me running like a maniac to keep up with them
