The best method is selling yourself as sales and engineering through your license . The problem is what others will do in the field in your absence.

Which's why it makes sense to separate labor vs administrative and push for more demonstration, skill test and ability based qualifications over "years of experience".

This is for resi service mostly.
I bring the license and 27 years in the trade, 20+ as a one man operation doing exactly what they are looking for someone to do.

I need to come up with a value for this and I'm coming up empty!!!

Thoughts????
