    He sold out,new guy couldn't do it either.
    theres a difference in making money and "turning" money too. and who knows, he may have been a loss for another business he had going my last company picks up work from home depot year round!!! slow or busy. fact is that you do a good job you have a new customer that you didn't pay for advertising or anything else to get them!! thats pretty sweet if you ask me.

    The consumer puts your name with the install, so if you hack it in because thats all sears will pay for, then your responsible because its install related, plus the customers will recall that crappy company that hack it in, and its not sears it was you!

    So now you really need work!

    I hadn't even thought about that aspect. Well we need more return, and this has to be changed.....no,no,no,......it's like this....

    We saw his numbers when he was selling out,he was a retired banker and doing well,we just didn't come to terms.Sears was a majority of the busness ,and I think it was because he ran such a tight ship,some would call him a pain,seriously you could eat off the warehouse floor.
