have you sat down with a piece of paper and brainstormed about what equipment you need, what type of insurance you need, advertisement to get customers, the type of customers and properties that you want to maintain, how much money you need, want, and have to make to survive?

liability and property...mostly liability is the most important. Workers comp is if you want to have employees, but it doesn't sound like you want employees

there is a lot of planning and learning to do to make it in this business asianmower. You will struggle and fall on your face, while other times you will do good. Heck my first year I was in the hole $3,500.

This industry is ever changing and you need to keep up with it to survive or even to make a quick buck.

So, "Grasshopper", you're 14, ehh? Been in business for 4 years? It's the end of June and you want ideas about how to make some quick cash? Did anyone bother to look at his profile? :o

You've been in "business" for 4 years,since age ten?, and don't have any idea about how to make a few hundred dollars? I think this is a BS thread..sell your equipment, I hear McDonald's is hiring.....
