No problem. I am not trying to pick on @coolluv, but I have learned over the years that the guys who "think" they know how to run a business are actually worse off than those who admit they don't know.
Interestingly enough, I am a big proponent of financing as much as possible - using OPM to grow your business, but only if someone knows how to run a business, manage employees, advertise effectively and sell their service. So the idea of having "no overhead" is fine, if that happens to be your scenario, and if it is, good for that person and they should take advantage of that, as long as they are able to recoup their initial investment.
Growth in this business is relative - its based on decisions made moving forward and the sacrifices one is willing to make to allow for sustainable growth.
Getting 10 new mowing clients does not warrant 2 new zero turns and a shiny new truck, but unfortunately many people look at it that way.
I can't say this enough - know your numbers.
