Do you remember the first REAL BIG job you sold? I spent over a year in business doing jobs no larger than $1,500 but then one day it happened. The right customer, the right moment, the “ BIG ” job landed in my lap. I thought I was going to look at a yard clean - up project but it turned out to be a new driveway and TONS of trees to remove. I hurried back to my truck and parked it in a Home Depot parking lot and started adding up the numbers . Until now, production labor hours had been pretty straigh t forward. So were material quantities for that matter. But I needed dumpsters, hauling, crushed stone, tree climbers and more. It felt waaaaay out of my league but I NEEDED this job. I was dying to sink my teeth into something “ MEATY ” and this project had all the allure.
What if I forgot something? Was I overpricing it? Underpricing it? It was a complex job (at least at that time) with a lot of moving parts. All these variables! How on earth could I land at a price where I could deliver the service fast and with high quality and make sure to make 25%...that was my goal. So I submitted my proposal to the client and a day later he approved it. Waaaaait a minute, I thought, scratching my head. He said YES? Does that mean I was the most knowledgeable contractor he met with or just the lowest price. Honestly, I was too afraid to ask at that time.
That job ended up going smoothly but I only made 17%. Still, I didn’t lose money for sure and I felt ready to take on even bigger projects.
I’ve spent nearly 30 years studying numbers. I loved math as a child and went on to earn my Mechanical Engineering degree after High School. I love everything about spreadsheets and the manipulation of numbers. This helps me remove the EMOTION from a proposal and look at the mathematics of it.
That doesn’t mean I don’t ever negotiate, in fact I consider myself to be a fierce negotiator. See, I can negotiate on any ground, be it scope of work, time to completion, price, value, quality and more. My “C-game” is better than my competitors “A-game” and I don’t say that to be arrogant…just abundantly CONFIDENT.
Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, walks away feeling like they’ve been burned. In my game of contracting, employees get paid great, subcontractors get paid great, vendors get paid on time, clients are happy and I get paid….ALWAYS!
