    You will be caught in the low paying, cut throat, rat race.

    Let your work speak for itself and build your company on that reputation, you will be much more successful in the end.

    THANK YOU very much for your response. I just got off line looking at subcontracting nightmares with SEARS. WAs supposed to have meeting tomorrow. Everything I read sales team comes in promises customer the moon! Looks like most complaints were not sizing correctly etc... And looks like every thing falls back on contractor. They want me to sign contract!!! Things are tight right now , it did sound to good to be true!!! I am not going ,had a bad vibe all along just needed some input thank you.

    New to system when you say get post up to 30 is that me responding to others, are me starting new thread asking questions?

    Combination of both.

    Keep i mind. We can't answer technical, or pricing questions in the open forums.

    But, you can post a little info about yourself in the general forum.

    All post count.
