Never happened before. All of a sudden I'm busy as all get out. Not complaining! 5 jobs to do in the next few weeks. 2 baseboard/casing jobs, 3 crown moulding jobs. I aint questioning it, just head down and ramming speed!

Two were referrals and the rest from my CL ad. I hope this continues!

I won't be able to keep up with the day time soaps LOL

Same here! Turning work away! Don't know about everywhere else but NYC really seems to be exploding. Need help. Hope it stays this way.

It's steady but not crazy, small company thought so one call and I'm slammed.

ya if this continues I might have to organize all of my bit's of wood that have my contacts name/materials lists on.

I have a buddy who has a mini-ipad and he pretty much runs his crew from that - hours, jobs, materials etc. seems to work pretty good for him. (concrete guy)

The good wife gave me a nice Microsoft Surface for christmas. I hook it up to my cell phone and make up an estimates and invoices on the spot. I email it as a attachment to the customers phone. I also use the "Square" on my cell phone for accepting credit card payments as well. I am still looking around for a printer that would work out in the cab of my GMC Sierra to make hard copies.

That should be about any printer, just get a power inverter.

I never leave home without mine iPad does it all well the apps do. Slow here there's guys who are busy working working for squirrel food. So many bidding work likes it 1984.

That square thing seems to work pretty well. My son's landlady has one on her cell phone (she sells soaps at craft fairs) and she's quite happy with it.
I might go that way, (accepting credit cards with square) it could make a difference between getting a job and not.

We use an HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer and like it very much. I believe we bought it from Best Buy.
