A few years ago as I was struggling to make it as the “new contractor on the block” it seemed that all the good advice and encouragement given to me seemed to be only that; good advice or encouragement. At the time, when money was as tight as could be, and I had little to no knowledge of how to run my business, I had nearly nothing to offer in the way of advice to any person just starting out on their own.
New contractor on the block
My complaints were: 1. Cash flow is almost non-existent. 2. You can’t seem to get paid on time from any of the contractors you do work for. 3. You claim to be continuously underbid by other contractors, no matter the size or scope of the project.
