Ed,

It may work out for you, but then again you may be sorry. If you need the business I would carefully consider it, but if you don't need the business don't do it. I know that doesn't sound very profound, but it comes from my experience.

My problem is I can't justify doing the same quality work for a lower price when I have all the business I need. I did agree to help out a so called friend at wholesale prices. I also did a few fish for other guys. Sometimes my own customers had to wait while I got some wholesale work done first, which doesn't make any business sense.

What really burned me was I waited a month for a guy (sopposidly a friend) to pay me for work completed, and he was offended when I firmly told him I needed to be paid.I was doing this guy a favor and even helped him out for a weekend on own shop time and he never even offered to pay me for it.

He now has Dan Rinehart do his fish and he is pictured in the catolog as saying Rinehart is someone he can trust for his wholesale work. What a slap in the face! No more wholesale work for me!

Cecil
