Talk to you soon.

"Hi Gary,

I just wanted to mention at how thankful I was to have stumbled on to the JanBid software created by Gary at National Pro Clean Corp. Not only did his JanBid software peak my interest, but as I navigated through National Pro Clean’s website, I found a link for the Contractor Start Up & Expansion Program with the JanBid software bundled together. With all that was being offered, I figured that this much information would be such a wise investment, how could I not spend the money now in order to save myself the costly mistakes my wife and I would have made already learned by Gary and his company with the many years of being in the industry.

It only makes sense to go along with a proven successful method at someone else’s expense, rather than having to make several costly trial and error mistakes yourself. This is after all why proper training exists for all jobs and or careers. If you think about it, it’s kind of like repairing a car. You can throw money, parts and your labor at it all day long, but if you had the know how, and the exact root cause of the problem, wouldn’t it just make more sense to get the job done right the first time? I think so. Thank you so much Gary, my wife and I love the software and knowledge your company has brought to the table for our business."

"I said I would let you know if I landed the contract you helped me with. Well, great news, I have just received notice two days ago that I have landed the contract. Once again thanks for your help. It is much appreciated."
