I have one last question that deals with our somewhat
dysfuntional family business and it is probably the most
important due to the timing issue which is critical in our
We have a high monthly overhead that is in place to support
bread and butter maintenance jobs that need 2 men working
40 hours each to break even,
the owner has not even started to line up repeat work for
the season that starts in 2 weeks instead chasing larger
projects that offer no guarantee of profitability and high
cost of sales which must be covered on top of fixed overhead.
I have suggested that we mail and email our customers and
line up this “”sure thing “” work before it is too late.
