I'm 29 years young and am just now deciding that I don't want to work for someone else anymore. I guess now is better than never, right? I have over 15 years of landscape maint. and some construction experience. I am motivated, extremely. I wake up thinking about how to improve my business plan and marketing strategies. Day dream of the perfect equipment setup I want to be running one day. And at night, I fall asleep reading "how to start a home-based Landscaping Business" by Owen E. Dell. (which is pretty good so far, amongst other landscape literature and of course "Lawnsite.com"
I just bought my first pick-up (2004 Chevy 2500hd CrewCab) and have all the basic tools and equipment needed. I have no customers. I just started advertising only a few weeks ago. I have had some bites and have done a couple estimates, but nothing concrete yet. But, I KNOW THAT I'M CAPABLE OF PROVIDING TOP-QUALITY WORK, and WHEN I'm given the opportunity to prove myself, I WILL. (<--- this is me being modest)
Just wanted to quickly introduce myself and let you all know that I have learned a lot from the various threads on this site and hope to learn/share LOTS more in the future!
