Very nice, beaver. Impressive for someone your age. Treat each and every customer like you would treat your mother's yard. You will go far, just don't go too far too fast.

personally, im very surprised that your parents, and customers would allow you to use equipment that is capable of crippling you, without adult supervision. other than that, keep your head straight boy, and u will go far.
