If you do good work and have good customer relations, you will have no problem picking up accounts in our market. This site is a wealth of knowledge to an extent. You sometimes have to sort through the bs.
Just exactly what I would say... work hard and don't get discouraged if things don't go your way. I would say 1-10 customers would be expected in year 1, better if you're good at what you do and can really impress people enough to give your name out.

I also will have an eXmark 36" Metro up for sale in spring, it's only a belt drive but you'll pay a heck of a lot less for that than a hydro and it's in near new condition.
