And if you're not going to attend I'd like to hear why, because basically there's no justification not to go. Let's just do a little quick math here: Let's assume it costs you $1000 to attend NPE and that you learn something that can save you $25 on every job. If you have two crews and each crew does one job a day and works 200 days a year that's a savings of $10,000 a year. That $1000 NPE cost looks like a pretty solid investment now, doesn't it? And anything you learn will compound itself every year you're in business so over 10 years that $1000 will save you $100,000.
So put all that together and now let me know why you aren't attending NPE. Hope to see you in Nashville!
