Build slow, steady and smartly. Use your uncle's advice.
Save all you can and put it back into your business. At 19 its tempting to buy a lot of toys and things that a guy wants. I know I've been there.... nearly 20 years ago.

Most of us have started small and very humble.
In 96 I was working out of the trunk of my car. (very soon bought a Ford Ranger).
Its very humbling to start that way but it helps to keep a guy grounded when he remembers those days.
Today I have this rig 100% paid for.
This trailer cost more than your tractor, blower and trimmer combined.

You will get yours too. Just build your business smartly.
