Just starting out pictures!

Hi,

I'm new to the industry and have a goal of starting a full time business in 2014. I have started looking into the necessary equipment and wanted to share my progress.

I started learning a lot this summer, however, feel the need to take 1 year of time and learn the industry in and out. I need that year of practice for handling equipment.

Now to the pics:



I do unique branding for companies and this is my design for my own so far. Would love to hear what you think..

I think you will have a unique advantage with your background in branding as I'm sure your marketing materials will be top notch and eye catching.

Are you maintaining any lawns currently? If not I would highly suggest getting a few customers under your belt so you know what to expect once you get into the business full-time in 2014.

What plans to you have to obtain a customers and actually be "full-time" in this industry in 2014? That is a very ambitious goal if you have no customers now, but would definitely be very attainable if you are already working in the industry part-time.

I love your designs though!!

logo's and everything look great. I think the truck lettering would be easy to make out and look great in person.

Your logos look good but you need to put more thought into your web site. With reference to previous remarks on your lawn photo, I would agree with them as this photo will do nothing to encourage potential customers to contact you.

I certainly would suggest that you get out there now, pick up some regular jobs, get some practical experience prior to 2014 rather than waiting till 2014 to discover that this business is not for you.

Please take these comments as constructive advise as I wish you the best of luck in your new venture.
