Now that you are starting from scratch here is my advice:

Target the best hoods and say the hell with the rest.

Get yourself a copy on INFO usa and do a direct mail letter campaign with the
prospects name hand written on the envelope. You can have the prospects name in type on the intro letter inside.

Put up a website to dazzle them with BS.

Sell them a monthly package deal on mowing, fertilizations, pest apps,
and shrub and tree trimming.

If you are going to get into this full time after you retire I suggest you look into buying an old van with a bucket from the
cable company to trim high stuff.

You can get a 48" mower in the back of van with a handy ramp gate.
The gate for vans is mounted on the inside of the van.

Sometimes I wish I could start all over. You can build a better clientel now and maybe a better paycheck.

Take it easy, hmmm, I think I heard that before. :)

I wear a leather lifting belt if I go out side to do anything. It sure helps to hold that back together. It will help to hold you together on the mower too. It is hot, but it helps. Give it a try. ;)

Best of luck to you Ron. I hope everything works out good for you.

Congradulations! Glad to hear your back in the swing of things. Find a good massage therapist and keep the back loose. (Go for a good looking young female type).

Welcome back Ron, thought that you would be down for a much longer period of time. As everyone has already stated, ease yourself into it because you could easily hurt your back again. Do you still have your FT job? Be careful on those ladders.

06-27-2001, 09:42 PM
Hey read my libs "NO MORE LADDERS" this os my new motto
I have learned my lesson the hard way I will stick to lawn cutting and only shrubs no taller then 5ft. I really think you all for all your support.without you LCO'S I would be NUTS..as for as my other job well I will be back in full swing July 10 with the state as a correctional officer and working part time in Lawn Care....YOU ALL ARE TOO COOL...........

Good Luck.
