Want to know how?

Easy, so far we have bid on one job and we won the bid. :whistling2:


Seriously, I have been reading the board and appreciate all of the input from everyone.

I have learned allot so far.

Now if I only knew how to paint...

Umm, no.

Don't assume that I'm a low baller. That I am not.

Actually, that is what suprised me. Honestly, I was tempted to to bid lower, but I gathered my courage and went with the formula.


My ex-boss lives in St Louis.

I hope he get's kil...uh...has a nice life. :)

Sounds like you have a handle on estimating. That's great and rare for a new business.

Have you done estimating before this new business or is this your first time?

I have been in outside sales for 10+ years selling premium products.

Selling, marketing, business development, visionary...no problem.

Painting...uh...not so much.

Actually, I am pretty darn handy, but I have much MUCH to learn.
