how old are you? if your old enough to get a job then by all means find one in the green industry. learn how to do different task before you jump into business. at least that way you can learn what it takes to make it in this business and what it takes to make a property look great. take notes, a daily log, these are the kinds of thing we look back on to figure where we goofed on our estimating, look for an explanation for the manhours and why they were so high, get future numbers from, learn from our mistakes, and to learn from ourselves. you've heard the term "if you don't learn from the past you're doomed to repeat it"? business is an everchanging thing and you have to wear many different hats as an owner. in my opinion from your statement you need to educate, educate, educate. if you were jump into business now and then realize the commitment it takes to run one of the business you may think it twice.
