What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Most jobs are given a price based on experience related,skill level and training needed to do a quality job. Also factors such as time required and over head are important when figuring out an acurate estimate thats both fair for the customer and me the contractor.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
For years i did all my own work after watching my father and grand father do the same.
In the summers as a child i would do work for neighbors such as handyman type projects. After 9 years with the phone company and doibg many side jobs on days off and weekends i decided it was time i tried working for myself seeing how big companies see employees as just a number. I wanted to control my own destiny and future and never have the hollow empty feeling i had being told after 9 years and having a family amd house to pay for that id been laid off because of a profit margin being off due to the companies
