i know i will be able to manage 20 at least. i am mowing 1/2 acre lots wich take me about 40 min. all my lawns ar on saturday with one on friday ( i may move my saturday mowings to friday and sunday so i can paintball. i have just about as much equipment as i need this winter it will be a quick 36 and a trailer. what is the best way to advertise to fall cleanups and just regular mowings? right now i plan to buy doorhanges for mowing and postcards for fall clean ups. how do you guys do it and how does it work?

Senior in high school, have 25 weekly accnts and currently have 5k in checking accnt saved for winter/spring startup exp's and to have fun with.

I have plenty of spending money to go out with friends which I do every other night or so.

It is difficult to balance work with play but if you get good at it then that is step #1 in becomming a sucessful entrepreneur.
