well when your ready, i'll give you any advise i may have, but once your retired you'll have more than enough time to market, network and advertise. as will i (in about 34 years) i'm trying to do it the hard way, hold a full time job, try to get the HI thing off the ground so i can do IT full time, retire and keep doing it. my advantage is i've spent years doing general construction (from ground work to roofing and everything in between). i know a little about alot which is what i need. but i don't know alot about any one system (yet). on a 10 scale i'd say my general knowlage on all sysems averages out to about a 7. 8 for some systems but 6 for others. but with all the learnin' i git offn' this board, i'm getting more smarter and less dummerer ![aiwebs_017.gif](upload://uRAv2wUJ69tsXvKKQ6tsqcq8ik5.gif)
all of the ispectoins i've done were either word of mouth or by asking the realtors to kindly put me on their list and give them a 10% kick back for any job attained by their recomendation or if the client gives me their name. i also printed up special business cards with a coupon on the back that i only gave to certian connections. if i get one back i know it was a good referal from that connection. i've got all kinds of tricks and ideas, some actualy work. i guess my avarage is about 16 hours of networking for every 3 inspections, so that averages out to be even, hour for hour so far. only in business for 4 months so far, so i'll let it gain speed before i try to take off and fly solo. well enough out of me for now, good luck marcel and don't be afraid to e-mail me direct if you need anything. cheers. (which reminds me, we still gatta have that beer)
