One of the things I always hear from contractors is that they are always losing out to low-cost providers.
If you ask any old head how he/she made their bones, they will tell you they built it on reputation and quality work. Not quality work that everyone talks about today, but the kind of work that is epic.
The kind of work that clients or customers talk about for ever…and using your name to do it. This helps you build on a reputation that extends past good price, good work.
It builds on great work, I don’t friggin’ care how much it costs.
That is the type of contractor you want to be known as. Do it better, charge more, retire rich.
