Check out this Small Cottage Business For Sale. Your chance to get in on the success after someone else has done the hard part of finding a product to make at home, that actually sells!
We've operated service businesses for more than a dozen years, and have done our fair share of both hiring subcontractors, and BEING the subcontractor. It can be tough to make money as a subcontractor, when someone else wants to resell what you are doing at a higher price.
Of course, during this time, we've learned more than a few tricks for enhancing our income potential while keeping the value the same (or better) for the client.
Subcontractors are really just another small business, with a few unique needs due to the fact that they market to businesses, not to end customers.
If you're stuck with too much work, and not enough income, and need to break the pattern, a consultation with us can be the best investment you'll ever make in your business. A consultation is $200 ($100 for companies wihtout employees and with a single decisionmaker), which includes a call of about 1 hour, plus email follow-up.
You should be making good money, and there is usually a way to do it that is not costly, and that is reasonably simple to implement.
