Free Estimate vs. Paid Proposal

In this episode Wade talks about his philosophy on why builders and contractors should stop providing free estimates and start getting paid for proposals
Wade talks about how the Design - Bid - Build system is a broken system, a standard in the construction industry.  But this system has many flaws.  Furthermore, no one should be working for free.  As Wade says "you wouldn't ask three surgeons to give you a free estimate on a heart transplant.  Why should we as builders be okay with providing dozens of hours for free when bidding work?  Let's discuss and talk about a better solution: getting paid for your time.
