My wife was laid off last year right in the middle of my first season as a independent lawn care company, Times were tough but we managed to make it though. This year she was still not working so she came to help me out. She loves the work and I love working with her so we made a great team. I have managed to triple my customer base in 2012 and plan on more growth in 2013.
If it weren't for my wife's help this year I'm don't know if I would be were I am today. But alas she is going to go back to an office job that pay better money then I do (I didn't pay her at all) to help pay the bills and keep the house and car etc. I will miss her next year it won't be the same out there with some young fellow as a mow partner.
