    If you are young and just starting out,don't be shy about asking questions.There is no such thing as a stupid question when one is eager to learn.Yes you will make mistakes,but we all do.This is a process we all go through.When you get enough experience under your belt and someone asks you for advise,give it to them.Remember your roots.Be a nice guy!

    Well said. Always be nice to your fellow plowers, you never know when you are going to need them. A wave as you pass each other makes everyone's day or night a little nicer. I was amazed by how nice everyone was when I first started.

    Question for all you seasoned contractors

    I've been sub'ing for 4 years now. I've tried everything, flyers, pounding the pavement talking to managers, handing out business cards, and nothing!

    I don't know what's wrong, I know I'm competitive with my pricing (but I'm not low balling to cut other people's nuts). It just seems like they stick with the big a$$ landscaping companies that do a crappy job....to say the least. What can I do better to try and get some contracts around here so I'm not stuck sub'ing forever? Thanks.
