What I make a month wont even pay our mortgage. My wife averages $200,000 a year. This year she is having a blow out year and could very well end up real close to $400K.


I have seriously thought about starting a new sales campaign and I may do it some day. My slogan will be something along the lines of

"Legal lawn care" we are NOT the cheapest because we do it legal and pay our tax's. I am starting to see more and more people frustrated with the current state of illegals and this kind of advertising may entice some people that are sick of them to give us a call. It would also right off the bat allow me to quote a higher than standard price because the person would already be expecting that when they called.


Then again that is probably a pipe dream and nobody would call
