Some folks try to help but they don't know what they are talking about. So by "helping" they are actually "hurting". So, does that make the ones that are wrong, right? wink

As in any industry, its good to network. To see what is going on in other parts of the country, and see the new systems out there which make other operators work more effeciant.
I just learned of a bat removal law that I couldnt even get the DNR to confirm exists. Ill be able to explain that to my customers correctly when they ask.

Why not? Ultimately it comes down to the person whether or not they last in this industry. Share or not share matters not. I've taught several that made it and several that haven't, same knowledge different people.

Knowledge is one of the few things when you share it you have more of it. Sharing knowledge also causes you not to be the victim of inbred knowledge. What hurts is people who don't give only take and insulting others experiences as incompetent, unprofessional, etc. Also everytime one of us does something bad or good it reflects on all of us.
Your competitor knowing how to do or not doing something doesn't hurt you. Them doing it better does and that doesn't come from sharing knowledge...probably genetics and environment.
I vote sharing openly and I would like to take this moment to thank those who do.

If you think about it, the vast majority of wco's don't even participate on internet forums. Who knows if they share their knowledge in their personal life.

I think most who share their knowledge, online or off, do it out of compassion. Humans are social animals and easing another's burden is learned behavior. Some get it. Some don't.

Vinke, why do you help others? You've gone to the trouble to make videos and post on multiple forums.

I've just started in the ADC field. I think I am the only one in my area so it's not like I am in direct competition with anyone.

But even If I were, there are those times when professionals seek the advice and help of other professionals. In this way we can better serve our own clients.

For instance;
For years I have made my living as a plumber. I do plumbing repair and light construction. I'm not in competition with the other plumbers in my area as much as we are working together. We keep in touch and discuss new techniques and code changes as well as new materials on the market. We also talk about problems we've encountered and what ways there are to solve them. Then, on occasions, we may discuss problem customers who can be either hard to get along with or bad about paying their bill. This is good, helpful, need to know information!

Then there is this as well. Some of us are better at one aspect while others handle the other side better. We can learn from each other or even trade off jobs. Also, there are those occasions where I may have to refer one of my customers to someone else because I can't get there quick enough for one reason or other. Just as I've had other plumbers refer business to me.

I've even been called on to help with someone else's job because they needed my knowledge or equipment that I had.

So, in reality, real professionals communicate all the time with one another. It is in this manner that we ALL can provide better services at reasonable prices.

Or.... I could just give you the short answer. "Hey! I looked at your foot! YOU OWE ME!" grin

I'm sure you are playing devil's advocate Vinke but I would think sharing knowledge would be much more likely to keep some jackleg from doing something stupid and giving the whole industry a bad name than taking dollars out of your pocket. I've only been in business a little over a year and appreciate what I have learned off the forums immensely. Most evenings I spend hours on the forums. Thanks to all that are willing to share!

Lots of knowledge available but there are still those doing handyman type work and cutting corners.
