Default i feel good tadadada dada dada so good

i landed my first upscale account 2 month ago, and my 2dn a week after they're next door neighbors one after another. Last year a did a back yard, renovation, for a lady the hold 9 yards, raise patio, flagstone, walkways planters, barbeque area, pavers etc.
the lady that i did the work, gave me the phone of this realtor, i call her she never answer, never gave me any work, long story short, she gave my number to this client

CLIENT: its this Beto

ME:yes sir, what can i do for u.

CLIENT:how much u charge per service

ME: 40.00 per service with, a sign contract, of minimum 2 visits per month.

CLIENT: can u come and give an stimate.

ME:im around the area. and done for the day u want to set up, in 30 minutes

CLIENT: lets do that.

i show up, not a $40.00 lawn to service (1/4 acre)

ME: while was driving into the community, woo, this is nice, shiiitttt they got huge yards, i can do it, i know i can do it, ill do it with my (2) 21in hondas and ill take me 1 1/2 hour with help. i need this .

the lawn was (1/2) acre, well i gave my estimate, and gave discount, i always, give discount to the very first customer to secure the contract, when i step into new community's, i got the contract for a rate much higher than $40.00, per service.

next week, i got 1 more contract with their next door neighbor, sweet people. for real, well they cancel their current company that was servicing their lawn and fertilizing for 5 years they have dead spots every where, well after 3 months of my service dead spots has reduce in a 25% of a 100% new grass its growing and im getting such a nice feed back from the clients, that they have refer me to their, 5 of their friends that live in this community. and i have 2 appointments out of 5 referrals for Wednesday.

i just want it to share.
