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.

After 27 years, I know you realize that the real money come from sales, not installation.
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".

Here's the scenario:

Established plumbing/hvac shop, 15 guys, looking to offer electrical services. They need a Master Electrician. Already have a journeyman and apprentice on staff. Masters role will be sales, estimating, design, permits etc and some field work. Of course providing the license to be used by the company is the biggest piece of the puzzle. 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????
