Yay it's March finally, surely spring can't be far off now. Time to start getting ready for the new construction season. For contractors it's a great time to make sure all of your equipment is clean and repaired if needed. If you take the time to make sure everything is in working condition now, it will save you time and money later on when you need it and it works.
It's also a great time to start calling some of the customers you've done work for in the past and see if maybe they are thinking about having something else done or know of anyone that is looking to have something done. Plus it's a great time for you to get feedback on their impression of your workmanship. Don't under estimate the power of unhappy customers to ruin your business. There use to be a guideline if you lose 1 customer, you loose 250 by the time they tell everyone they know. With todays social media I'm sure that number is much larger now since its so much easier to pass the word around, don't let a simple misunderstanding become a major problem.
Spring is a great time to brush up on new techniques that have come out and maybe try to learn some new products that you can add to your resume. There are lots of places you can take a class or two like http://www.deco-cretesupply.com/ for example.
Spring is the time for renewal and staring over so be sure you're ready to start the new year with a fresh outlook.
