THat is many of the reasons i LOVE what i do, but it has changed quite some as if you have followed me on here any you know we are growing crazy. we have three full time full maintenance crews, and by the end of 2011 i can assure we are going to have to have another crew.

i am getting some competition here from a guy very much like you and he is great at marketing etc, but i can assure you in quaility he holds nothing on me, and i might add nothing on YOU as well just from the pics along on here.

yes I dont like weeding either, hate trimming hedges, and sometimes mowing can get old but thats usually right at the end of the season so its no big deal

You have come quite a long way over the 2 years that this thread has been going. You seem to be doing quite well and should have quite a company built up shortly (not that you already don't). I glanced through some of the thread and you have done quite well for yourself and really gained a lot of new "toys".

You seem to have a lot of ambition and I can really see you going far in this industry.

Over the next 5 years I have plans to start growing my company even more...but for right now, I am pretty content with what I have. Plus I don't have enough time right now to dedicate to running the business full time.

Sounds like me with the whole putting business first, I also am criticized especially by my family and former friends, notice how I said former, because if they're like your friends and complain you work too much yet they hate their jobs & wish they made the money I make, they are not going to be my friends. No point in having people around you that dont support you. I basically said (in a nice way) to the family members that say I work too much to kiss my ass. I dont have a wife or kids or even a gf nor do I find a need at this point in my life (I'm 19) leaving all my time for going to college full time and running my business, racing motocross and hanging out with my friends (most are other landscape contractors) when I get the time on weekends.

I'm with you 110% on enjoying what you do. I tell people I worked a 14 hr day in 90 degree weather and they say "oh man that's gotta suck!" my response is "actually I enjoyed just about every minute of it, beats the hell outta working as a secretary or something inside and boring and the money I made makes it even more worth it."
