    My head is in the clouds today... For good reason...

    PL, more good advice, Work like a dog, but take time to relax, exercise when you can. Stay away from booze and smokes if you do those things. and actively seek out those opportuniteis when your out in the world. If you go to see a client, abosrb all you can from his(her) establishment. I get tons of work just by pointing out stuff that my client needs. BUT when you bring it up- do it in a positive way.. Say so &so, I noticed that your railings were in pretty good shape but there is a spot where they could use some reinforcing... jsut an example. if they are in a high crime area and dont have security bars on the widows, try to sell a set of custom mades...
    I runa sign sahop so Im always looking for advertizing opportunities to present to my clients. my avg is about 69%. for every 10 questions I ask, I'll get 7 or so posotive replies or replies tha tcould be worth persuing..
    Remember , make them feel good abou tthemselves, their business and the money they spend...

    Nothing can stop the man with the right mental

    attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth

    can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

        Wow!!!

        Thanks for all the awesome replies out there! I like the advice about finding a specialty area and going with that, which we are in the process of going in that direction. We just put two new adds out that focus around customizing of trailers/vehicles, that's kinda our niche (what we like to do). We just finished doing a custom removable winch mount for a car hauling trailer. The guy was speechless when he saw the finished product. I love that feeling!!

            Interesting thread here.

            Here's another "not from God's word" quote:

            -Have your tools ready, God will find you the work.

            Don't know who said it, but it's been helpful to me.
