Your Naughty-but-Nice Neighbor
It is an old saw, but it still has some teeth to it!
When it comes to contracting for services (think car repair, hair cuts, or bypass surgery) you have three options, and you can only have TWO of them at any one time; Cheap, Fast, or Good?
In my particular business, if you want it Right Now and Inexpensive, it ain’t gonna be Quality. If you want Right Now and Quality, it is gonna cost ya!
In my particular case, I focus on providing Good Value; excellent service at a reasonable price. What I don’t offer is Right Now. You can’t just dial the phone and have me delivered. I liked to be ‘wooed’ a little and I am happy to return the favor. The fellas I choose to see have to be able to plan ahead, because you only get two. And if you chose carefully, two out of three ain’t bad.
