Please introduce yourself and tell us why you chose TurboBid.

Steve Blackford: Good morning. My fellow electricians and electrical contractors. My name is Steve Blackford. As you can see, I own and operate Southeast electrical constructors down here in South Florida. I have been working with TurboBid since 2012, with Bill Ruffner. I have been successful with my little business. I am strictly a commercial contractor, industrial, and health care. I don't mess around with the residential stuff. That's part of what I love about TurboBid. It is so completely adjustable to everything that you do. You don't have to, work in any fixed format. I have worked with EBM, ConEst, McCormick, and when I was setting my company up, I looked at all that stuff and settled on TurboBid because I liked how simple and adjustable it is to what you do. You can format it completely and customize it to exactly what you do. You don't have to be stuck in a rut doing the same old stuff with the big, big companies and spending big money on their estimating software and not getting anywhere. It's a Monday morning down here and I'm getting ready to start two new projects this week that I won using TurboBid. One is a commercial remodel, which is going to be a nice little job. And then I've got a, a complete fit out for a physician's office with, it's gonna be a nice job there as well. The thing about TurboBid is when you're setting up your Employees and the Overhead Wizard, you know exactly what your costs are to do these jobs. If you don't like what the counter offer that comes back from your contractor and it doesn't fit within the format that you've got laid out in TurboBid. Turn it down. Don't take work that doesn't make money. That's my philosophy. I've been in this business for a long time. I'm turning 72 in a week. I can't believe I'm still out here carrying tools and having a blast. I just love what we do. So I've worked with major corporations, like I say, I've done, you know, work my way up from just a green electrician way back when, I've been a project manager, a construction manager, and vice president of companies. And I retired and I've been playing with my own company and it works really, really well. I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've enjoyed working with Bill Ruffner. He's fantastic. So, do you yourself a favor. Get hooked up a TurboBid. Go make some money.
