Annual Income...

Hey all. I don't want to be rude at all when I bring this topic up, but since we are in this business I think we should know how much we're making. I have decided to not go to college and continue to work my lawn business. Most people have told me that I am basically an idiot and that I will end up going back to school after I fail in my business. I think, though, that I can make an honest living doing this thing and doing it well. My goal is to have 200 weekly lawn maintenance account by the time I am 21 (I am 18 now.) Right now, we have 38 accounts and I just hired my first employee. Anyways, what do you guys think about skipping college to work my business? Do you think one would ever be able to achieve a six figure income from owning a lawn and landscape business? Any advice/critism would be helpful. Thanks, guys!
