I agree. I'll admit I was a "lowballer" for my first couple jobs. It wasn't on purpose, I just didn't know my worth. What I did was stopped, took time to find my numbers, and start over. I looked at it like this: I wasn't making money, but losing it. Why not take the money that I was losing and put it towards better marketing. It ended up paying off. I was still paying out, but it was actually going towards something to help move my business in the right direction.

Go knock on their door and ask them if they have any plans on getting their lawn serviced. Provide them with a free on site estimate if they'd like.

How long did it take to reach the point where you realized this? Was there one specific point that really opened your eyes to this?
