Job I bid for update

They offered me the job but at a lower bid. Not sure what to do. I need a certain amount of money a week. But I only have about 20 hours to work. If I clean 4 houses at 4 hours each, plus work my Sat. night babysitting job I will make enough money. If I take this job I will have to work another two jobs a week. Basically about 26 hours a week to make the same amount of money. This means another day work and another house or two to clean. I am not sure I can handle that with homeschooling and homeschool co-op.

I need to make a decision by tomorrow am, so I am really not sure what to do.

Another thing that concerns me is mixing business with friendship. I have had a problem with this before.

But in the mean time I do not have 4 houses a week to clean and am not sure how long it will take to build up to that.

Wishing you the best of luck. I know accepting jobs below what we need to make can be a challenge, but sometimes we have to do that just to get by until something better comes along. That's why I took a part-time job at Chick-fil-a. Of course part of the decision there was because the corporate structure requires all there operators to be closed on Sunday's. Since it was Christian run I also knew they would be more willing to work around my Church volunteer hours to.

The thing is these are friends of mine, so I wouldn't want to quit when something better came along. I turned down the job and am going to work on promoting my house cleaning business. I just ordered 1500 new business cards and 4 car magnets. Hopefully this will help.
