After I flipped my first home, I took a little book out, and I marked down every single contractor that worked there that I knew that I could totally trust with everything. There was only one contractor that I seriously wished would have gotten really hungry one evening and bought himself some chicken and choked on a damn chicken bone. No I didn’t want him to die right away. I wanted him to be at home and have nobody there to help him and he struggled to breathe while the chicken bone crushed his ability to breathe effectively to sustain life! All joking aside, that’s a little harsh, but that’s how I feel about people that legitimately steal from me. Every single person that worked in the house except for that person and one other contractor that lifted my foundation: I would hire again. The other two, I would be happy to purchase them a bucket of chicken. #KFC 💁
Having said that, I just got a phone call from a guy I used to install a couple of windows. He actually works for a very large window company and helps people on the side for a little extra cash. I left a message with him the other day and he just called me back. He had tried to get a hold of me two other times, and we had a bad connection, but he made three attempts to get a hold of me until we finally connected and he’s going to put the few windows in that I need. I want two new windows installed in the one bedroom in the basement and two glass blocks for security. That is the connection that I held onto because of his workmanship and his responsibility and his trustworthiness in the first home!! Save those contacts. Those kinds of people are difficult to find so in this business you want to grab onto six of those people and do not lose their contacts . Buy KFC for the rest ….
In reading this post, has anybody realized that I’m actually getting really good at figuring out how to use Word Press as now I know how to make my post have a little different color background so it’s not so boring to read…. what color should I make this one?
