You're doing it you're way and that's all that matters so Suck It to all those that say you got to do it this or that way! This is America we have that privilege.
We make the rules and those that say other wise, again- Suck it!
The industry is mine. It's yours and anyone that says otherwise- Suck it!
Unfortunately we will never agree on a norm price unless Uncle Trump steps in to regulate.
There are ghetto people, ghetto homes that have ghetto service providers and up. Question is which one are WE?
How desperate are you, do you cheat on your taxes, are you planning future expenses like Jim & Dane mentioned?
At the end of the last day of your life did you "do it your way"? If you can say "yes" then you did it & be proud!!!! Did you have to KA, PS and be who you're not to get that greenback? If you did you Sucked It!!
If you can't balance profit, business and just creating a job for yourself then get a job. If a cAller can wind you down in price and you give - get a job or become a carpet cleaning super hero that lives to provide cheap quality service, you'll get 72 virgins from the Salt Lake Mormon Church of zerorez with Downes syndrone
Worked alone today, 1st job was a vacant 5 room home with tile hallway and kitchen. Gave discount cuz they were active duty: $330.00 cash. Military discount and cash discount. At least a dozen red stains, 3 color loss spots and a loose transition I repaired. 3.5 hours. Did I enjoy it? Hell yeah! Fixed it all. Happy customer, suck it IRS!
If you ain't digging it get educated and get a job or be who you ate not and KA. Otherwise enjoy what you do and wake up at 3am every morning in panic - "what if?"
We self employed live on the edge. Tomorrow you can clean for some dirt shmendRick and catch a disease and spend eternity in a diaper. How many times do we breakdown and work it anyway.
Bottom line: I'm still confused but Fook it I dig it. If I die of a massive stroke at 57 cuz I used ultrapac and got Fels Naphtha in my eye in some ones living room, I enjoyed the ride.
Yesterday did a repair and cut myself I bled out a quart but boy did that patch look invisible and got all the blood out too.
