Shelia:<p>I started my landscape / lawn care business in North Carolina 14 months ago. Like you I was tired of the corporate world and wanted to make my hobby a profitable career.<p>Personally, I would do it alone - no partners - and would jump in head first and go full time. There is more than enough work in the Raleigh area to make a good honest living. By going full time you can focus all of your energies on building your business and not being distracted. <p>The great thing about this biz is the fact that you can get started with minimum capital upfront. I started with a truck and 22&quot; Toro and now have built up to 4 trucks, 7 mowers, 9 employees, and a full time landscape team. Had I not liked it then I would have been stuck with a truck for my everyday vehicle and a Toro to mow my yard. Not a lot of upfront capital risk. The hardest decision is walking from that quaranteed paycheck each month. Good luck and go for it!
