    Here I am In the future, use the @ symbol before my name and I'll get a more direct notification. I participate in the forum where I can but am laser-focused on hitting a few strategic initiatives so don't always have the time. To me, worrying about other pilots devaluing your services...that's not something you can control. No centralized national body or membership will change that. My advice would be to focus 110% on what you CAN control...building your own business and kicking ass while doing so. Some inspiration for you: https://uavcoach.com/drones-gis-mapping/ https://uavcoach.com/pricing-aerial-services/ https://uavcoach.com/movie-work-drones/ https://www.dronepilotgroundschool.com/jbr-life-photography/ https://www.dronepilotgroundschool.com/derrick-ward/ There's no silver bullet here. Just a lot of persistence and focusing on the right thing...getting high-quality clients that others can't compete for.

    Greetings from Idaho!

    Welcome, @Mdblocker! I was just in Idaho all last week—rafting on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River up near Stanley. Had fun exploring downtown Boise on Thursday night. I really hope to spend more time in Idaho. Beautiful state. Stay in touch and let us know what questions you have along the way.

    Wahoo, congrats @Dooger09 and welcome to the forum. Love Seattle and the Mt. Rainier area—climbed it about 15 years ago and hoping to get back again soon. Spent some time in Tacoma and Spokane as well.

    How's business?

    Ooh, hoping some folks will chime in here. I think the general consensus for a lot of folks is that it's very much a one foot in front of the other kind of situation—those that stick it out day after day and continue to build relationships, to fly, to put themselves out there, to learn and to embrace a consultative sales process are the ones who are going to find business. There's absolutely opportunity out there, but it's a brand new industry, and people looking for market rates, quick money, and blueprints of how to succeed don't get what it takes to hustle and to build a service-based business. It's tough work! #mytwocents
