    One makes Real Money in this trade by knowing when you can. After every natural disaster, prices MUST firm up. You can bank on your supplies firming up their pricing. That's a big hint. No-one made to the Big Time EVER by discounting their work. No-one. EVER. Our trade has a lot in common...
  2. General Electrical Discussion
    So I was looking at and electrical wholesalers website in Canada called gescan and I noticed that the public facing website was giving better pricing than the my pricing when I signed in to my account. Been buying there for years and spent many $100K there. I looked around and noticed that...
