thank u steve.

well i will talk 4 my own experience, which is really short, i have been in biz. 1 year and 8 months now, last year i had only 5 customers now, im up to 33 clients and i keep getting 2 to 3 clients every 45 days, my last 4 accounts have been really beneficial .

back to the subject, of getting high end clientele, i will say most of rich people are really, sketchy, about changing services, i don't want to mention big names, but if a huge biz that is in 51 states of the country can not repair dead spots of grass in your yard, i dont really think they will want try new services so they will just stick to their, service in my case they where a referral of a huge backyard renovation in the house of a financial something, i dont get to personal with clients i will say the best way to get high end customers its put your head down and keep doing what u doing and make sure u do it right. u set up the type of biz u want to be, i have set up in my mind an i am aiming to it, i think i ear this in ur post in YouTube Steve a bout a guy that was call by a lady, she was the hoa president of a rich neighborhood she never got to hire him but she recommended the guy to like 10 clients in the neighbor.

well really similar here i did, an outstanding job for a rich lady, the lady had a upscale realtor friend, the realtor friend never hire me, but she refer-me, to one of her clients.

so i say, u will get high end clients if ur, product or service its according to their standard of living. they dont want a monkey in ztr comming and going, they want somebody they can trust and get a good answer back if they have, any type of concern, even if that means paying a little extra for that. that's why they have money to do, as they please with it

i will say this an im not bragging about this i have double the price that they where paying to this biz, and they toll me after she sign the contract. they were more than happy to change their old service even if its mean paying more.
