Default First Job

I got my first contract of the year signed this week! Although it is a small job, it's a start. I have also given estimates for about 5 or so clients. I hope this continues threw the spring. Wish me luck and I will do the same for everyone else.

That is awesome new!

How did landing that first contract effect your view of the upcoming season and your business?

Do you feel success breeds more success?

Steve - it definitely feels good to be getting business. Even though it is only one customer, we at least know the the word is out there for the upcoming season. 950Thomas I hope you are right!

Do you feel more pumped now to go out and get more customers now? Do you feel it positively effects your ability to sell?
