You would be amazed how many jobs you can get from existing customer's especially when your not mowing them. Diversify your company, shrub trimming, flowerbed weed control etc. should already be things you offer with normal service. The best advise.....be smart about spending, bank money. Try to get different types of customer's, some seasonal, some per time. Our seasonal customer's help us through the rough times of the year and the per times keep cash flow going. Its a rollercoaster for sure. If it really gets bad like it did for us last winter, look for a p/t job. Luckily my Father-in-Law owns a commercial painting business so he usually needs help so I do that if it doesn't snow, we stay pretty busy spring, summer and fall.
