Too Old to Start a Lawn Care Business?

Last March I was downsized and started to do lawncare. I paid cash for new equipment from my severance package and started to develop a small customer base. I'm in my second year of lawn care and have a customer base of about 25 clients as a solo. I am 46 yrs old and in good shape, but how long will I feel good doing this? ( question to myself)

Anybody over 40 working as a solo and planning to do this for the next 15 - 20 years?

I do have a 4 yr degree, but with the economy the way it is I gave up sending out resume after resume and only a couple interviews. So I continued to move forward with the business and working on getting a few more customers to around 30-35.

My wife is a teacher and covers the health insurance, so that is a bonus. And she likes the daily cash flow from the lawn business.

Anyone in a similar situation? - thoughts, comments? thx
