DO NOT TAKE THE TEST! YOU WILL FAIL! STOP NOW! IT'S TOO HARD!JAT said:I've been in construction since I was 14 years old and I'm good - damn good. I'm trying to relocate to Nevada and have (after 8 months) been approved to take the General Contractor's exam next month. The test will be difficult - I'm told. I may not pass the test. After being considered one of the best builders in a 200 mile radius - I may not pass an exam that some very shoddy builders have passed. And if I don't - there goes my business. I pride myself on being able to solve any problem...and to date - in 16 years - I've never failed. But none of that matters. My integrity does not actually matter. My ability does not actually matter. I am just curious to hear if anyone else has been in my situation.
THAT is a great point Grumpy. Only recently have I begun to implement that policy and it's produced the desired results. I put myself in a box a couple of times, by staging jobs before the were signed for, and I learned how important it is to stick to a "first things first" policy. It helps both me and my customer.Grumpy said:I think it's poor business to schedule a job without a signature.
