      Hey, I've been reading some of your posts and I have to say, I think we got some things in common. So let me start off by introducing myself I guess. I'm Brendan, I'm 21, from Averill Park, and will be graduating from UAlbany in the spring with a degree in Financial Analysis. I started a lawn care business last year and ended up with about $20k in sales on a $150 marketing budget (all spent on the local paper), not too bad all things considered. Either way, I have decided to pursue this business instead of a job in finance, as we all know what the job market is like for finance, plus I just don't think I can pull off sitting in an office for the whole day. So basically, I am looking to take you up on your offer for advice on how to grow a lawn care business (read it somewhere a little while ago). I started my business with partners (2) last year, but quickly found that their quality was severely lacking, simply average. This made the season very difficult, because as I'm sure you have experienced, I ended up managing the business and having to constantly deal with them. With that said, I have decided to take on this business solo for the time being, as I want to bring the quality of work up to my standards and establish a solid customer base before I proceed with adding employees. I figured you might be able to help, as we are located relatively close to each other, but far enough to not be competition, as I serve Averill Park, Troy and surrounding areas. So I guess I just have a bunch of questions about my plans and wanted to get your opinion as to the feasibility of such. If you're up for it, feel free to send me an e-mail at bp888321@albany.edu and I'll explain what I'm trying to do and such. Hope you're enjoying the cold we've been having, I've had about enough of the winter already.

      Thanks,

      Brendan
