I am still blown away by this line why bother starting a business if you are certain your real goal is to fail at it? Get yourself in the local paper get yourself into some sort of direct marketing and start planning out your website. I once signed up 27 lawns in a 3 day weekend in March and how did I get the leads from advertizing of course.
