Instead of complaining, running away, calling it quits.
Get on the change of venue bandwagon and make a difference . Set standards for the industry.
Nothing in life worth having is too hard to work for.But You must have a reason, purpose, passion for doing it.
We as a society for too long have just sat back and gave in.
The working poor are getting poorer and the cost/overhead does not go away.
If I did as this person says and Quit every time the battle of life got to overwhelming, then I would not be here today to say to the rest of you .
Get Tough, Chin up, Look to the future for ways you can change this industry.
Educate, Achieve, Strive for Excellence, do what is best for your life ( not for the industry)
When there is a no Quit option , you must go forward and you cannot quit
Don't quit, Get Real , Make changes that will make the industry worth working for.
If you have employees, give just and due rewards for achievements, Livable wages
If you have overhead, Cost of doing business, restructure and get the overhead down.
If you have to compete with the cosco, walmart, cheeeeeeeep mentality , figure out a new niche to get things up.
If your not cut out for the contractors, business, dog eat dog environment which this industry creates , then Plan, Purpose, set site s for better times, greener pastures.
what ever you choose do it as your passion or because you like what you do, not just a job!
I applied this to my business plan about 10 years ago, restructured, got rid of all the overhead , started doing business on a different design .
I don't advertise, I don't take on everyone's liabilities, and nightmares they create
Work Hard, charge for what your worth, Do a professionals Job, don't Gauge or take advantage of others lack of knowledge or understanding of the products or education in this field.
I make a decent living, customers appreciate me, I don't compromise for the low price, I don't Consult to agency's, personnel for free so they can get others to do the project with my expertise.
and I don't lower these standards NMWTCost .
And I dont waste time on walmart bids which have no value
just my thoughts on this subject
