This is where I'm at.

I've been running my business for 23 years now.

I'm now to the point where guys are doing the grass cutting and I'm able to do the more profitable small jobs myself.

In the last two weeks I've sold $50,000 worth of contracts for next year. Some of that was luck, but a lot of it is directly related to the fact when the customer called, I was able to show up and correct a situation, whereas the current contractor was too tied up at other accounts.
