    Take one good customer that has "outsourced" their snow removal services.
    Add 1 fresh out of college business major working for the outsource company trying to screw the little peon snow removal contractor by attempting to beat up on your per occurance or per hr. rates.
    Get shoved around long enough by the bus. major that you consider him an annoyance, and decide you no longer want the contract.
    Have owner of property insist to outsource company that he wants you to do the work because he's happy with your work.
    Have competitors that respect you enough to refuse to submit proposals.
    Have business major start calling again, wanting you to sign your original proposal, but you now have picked up other contracts and now must "adjust" your rates.
    Know on other end of phone line that when he agrees to your pricing structure, that he's crying.
    Blend in potential for a great snow removal season and enjoy!
