But so many of the Black Businesses that I have called for bids for different services have disappointed me as a consumer.
I called a tree service own by a Black father and son to cut and remove trees and brush from the back yard.
They give me a bid of $375.00 it seem a little over priced for the amount of work involved.
So as a informed consumer I sorted out another bid from another tree service,needless to say it wasn't Black own.
Their bid included not only the trees I wanted originally removed but trees that I thought would be an additional cost in the future,their price in total $500.00
The bid for our tree removal and clearing went to the second bidder hands down.
What I learned from this experience is when doing business,keep your emotions in check and simply look at the transaction as just business,if the person who happens to be doing the work for me looks like me thats a bonus.
Folks if we are going to be in business we have got to think long term,we have got to start thinking in terms of repeat business and growing our business.
Charging me the max at one time for a service doesn't endear me to call your business again,second the goal of any business should be extreme customer service,which means give the customer what they expect.
