DONT SELL YOUR EQUIPTMENT! DONT GET OUT OF THE BUSINESS.
You are just in a slump. All successful men failed at first. Hang in there. Keep on trying. You can always find some other yards to mow. Go to a dirrerent part of the area. Just dont give up!!If you want to get rid of something, get rid of your wife! It sounds like she does not stand behind her man in low times.
