Got a New Job the Other Day
I had a job working as a painter, but the truth is that my boss had fallen apart pretty much. He was a very good painter, but he was not a great business person and over the course of time he sort of fell apart. We had been doing contract work for the company that I am working for now, they are both painters and decorators for London. My boss fixed this up for me and in fact he got another job for himself. He made a deal with this other guy. He would take over the actual work part of his painting business and leave the other guy free to focus on the business aspects of it. The two things are really not all that closely related to be honest about it. The ability to do the job has a little to do with whether or not you can make money at it or not.
The truth is that you can not stay in business long if you are not able to get the job done well, but you need to be able to talk people in to giving you jobs. There are a number of moving parts in that aspect of the work. The first thing is being good at a face to face sit down meeting. You need to make the other party believe that you can do every thing that you say that you can do. Then you have to be able to do the math for the job. It is going to take so many man hours and so much material to do any job. You have to figure out what that is going to add up to and then give a quot on the job that allows to make a profit on the job.
