Thread: What do you do when?

    Default What do you do when?

    Alright guy's .... and girl's. What do you do when you think you have a bid in the bank, and your competition low balls it right when you go to get the contract signed? The PM is telling me that they are going to reclaim as well Woop-t-doo. She has said thier name so I'm pretty sure she has told them who they are up against, they know what toy's we are bringing to the table. Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill, But I really didn't like waking up today to hear that this dude want's to get dirty like this.

    I would call this guy out and explain that most cleaning contractors need to make a living at this and if he wants to ever move out of mom and dads house someday he will have to step up with the big boys and price right!!

    Good to hear you still have the contract.We have all had those moments when we thought deals were going down the drain and got bent out of shape trying to figure out a way to save them.

    When that happens to me, I write an article about it, publish it, and hoodwink myself into believing that through consumer education we can change the world. Then I mix a stiff gin and tonic, take a long tug off a cheap cigar, and figure out how to make tomorrows estimate higher than todays. Heres an example:
