How long in the business?

Hey guys, I saw someones signature that said 40 years old, blank years in the business and it got me thinking "I bet some of these people have been doing this for A LONG TIME"... So How long have you been in the buisness of lawn care, landscaping, Snow plowing, etc... Oh and can u name what you've done/ do

I've been in the industry cutting lawns since I was around 12yrs old, so around 16yrs in the industry and this year marks 7yrs in business for my company. Not too bad for only going to be 28 in Oct.
