We cant all rely on our Canadian wit to atract new clients..
He may be great in building up a company but his marketing looks like a knock off of Zero Rez. Plus he knocks all other carpet cleaners like you and me. I know you need new clients but that doesn't mean we have to like them. Go read his web site. Just as you get started reading someone pops up to ask if they can help you. Pisses me off when they do that. Let me finish reading your web site first and if I have any questions, I'll call.

I was going to comment how this is incredibly ironic because of how much crap Mike gave him back when he first started. Wasn't it over an airpath or something?
I think he flaked on an auction....and then something with some other deal...a truck I think.

But Mike thought he was fos in general iirc

I'm more that happy to admit that I was wrong about Ben's appealingly sketchy start.

He and I have stayed in touch all along and I have immense respect for anyone who can figure out how to employ 28 people in the Seattle area economy.

I'll be in the front row, all ears.



Ron if you'd like to lead a class at the same time as Beb on how to squeeze an extra gigawatt out of a portable for your fellow dedicated loaner operators, that can be aranged.

I like the success story. Anyone who can succeed in this business to that extent, I take my hat off to. There is a lot more to this business than just marketing. I think he's done an incredible job. I'm just picking him apart as if I was his competition.

He had a bad experience with the hydramaster 870 total pita, but since they don’t make it anymore maybe there’s some justification.

What’s he running now 650’s?
