Sometimes its for the best. I just gave a quote out for a lawn renovation...haven't heard back. I'm not worried about it and neither should you. Most of the time the cheapest guy wins the bid, but is making next to nothing off a job even worth it? Take the time you would have spent doing it and pound pavement for a while. I'm sure you can pick up a few extra customers here and there.

I came to this forum for help from people. To learn on esimates because I've read everything online, bought books from stores and read, and went to business school in high school, and than grew up on a job site because my Papa owned a very large contracting company. Yes, I still need help. Thank you for the help.

Could you call her and ask her if she had any more questions or needed any more help? You never know what might have happened since the last time you spoke so it doesn't hurt to keep the lines of communication open.

Well, I didn't wanna be pushy, she has my business card and the invoice with the prices and all on it and the number. I went to her house three times and emailed her once.
