I'd like to pick up 20-30 good mowing accounts. An additional 5 full service. Really want to expand spraying accounts.

I would like to add about $500 in new weekly mowing business. Some customers drop off the list, so the $500 would be net.

In hoping to retain as many customers from last season as possible and at the same time land an additional 10-20 clients! Keeping my fingers crossed!

If I don't slack off with getting out my advertisements I expect to add between 7-10 weekly customers.

I also expect to land about 10 mulching only jobs.

I would be thrilled with this result.

Looking at your other post, how is your customer service? You seem to me to be losing too many customer's. Also it seem's to me that 80 account's are not near enough for your crew size. I'm solo, work 4 1/2 day week and I do around 70. Some weekly. Some ETW. I'm happy where I'm at and I'm thinking about a 3 day work week for 2013.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!
