but that is the point of this of the points anyways.

i have learned alot just from reading other how to bid post..
i dont always do as they say...i sometimes improvise depending on the situation. but i have a better understanding of what others are thinking, and where to start.

i think its ok to ask any ?
im sure someone will be more than willing to help.

there is also alot of material on this site for more established setups..

i guess it would be almost impossible to read everysinge thread.... so i usually go to what catches my eye...
or what i feel i may need help with..

i love this site......

I think this is a pretty crappy attitude.

Alot of the help me bid posts are things some of these "noobs" have never done before. There is a recent post on here now about mulch..... Maybe they've never done mulch before? Maybe they don't know do deep it should be? & they may have no idea whatsoever how long it might take them? But they are trying to grow a new businesss the same as all of us have done & continue to do. So they seek advise. Big friggen deal man. Don't like it? Don't respond to that post.

I love this site. It's a great resourse if & when I need help & I am more than happy to help anyone I can, even if a new company owner right in my town called me up for help I would be happy to offer any advise he sought.

This is the only post I've ever read that pissed me off & I respect you a little less Mark after reading it.

I have no trouble helping anyone. Chuck stole the words right out of my mouth. I have been known to offer advice to my competition many times. It is always a good idea to keep a close relationship with your competition.
I alway say, "keep your friends close, and your competition closer".

I am very new to the business and i have learned so much from reading this board. It has been a gigantic help in getting me up and running. I have asked a few questions and got some solid advice. As far as the questions being asked go, the only stupid question is the one nobody asks. And as far as the comments about it being simple 1st grade stuff, I have owned several businesses over the years and am a very good business man and every business i owned i always asked questions from people that were in the business to learn what i did not know. Not trying to be a jerk here but just remember back when you were starting out did you know everything there is to know about your business or did someone help or mentor you. We are here for a reason and that is to share and network ideas and help each other and i am very grateful for this site and for all the wonderful peole on here that do take the time to help others.
