Any tips for a new guy? I started my business last year, and I do only REO's, But it seems this year things are even tighter then last. I had to pawn a few things just so I could afford workers comp, and GL insurance. Anyway to the question, I am running a JD M665 and I am thinking of switching to Snapper. They seem to be a lot cheaper but I know with most things, "Cheaper doesn't always mean better". Any feed back would be great.

You can not get comp as a solo.

Both comp and GL are based on Payroll

Remember, you're no good disabled, dead or injured.

Must have gear: First aid kit, Safety ear plugs, eye protection, sun block, hat with mudflaps, gloves, safety t-shirts, road cones and lip balm.

IPhone , pens, stamps and envelopes.

Good hygiene, quality apparel and business cards.

And most importantly and just below safety; embrace technology.

....... And I forgot, write this on your dashboard and live by it "Smarter not Harder!"

This single reminder will save you a lot of grief and make you a lot of dough. I guarantee it!
