Georgialawn88 makes some solid points. As a legit biz you can in fact expense much overhead. Buying your own health coverage is a huge issue. I have no health coverage. Can't afford it now. Frankly I'm pondering pushing hard at finding a part time job 20-24 hours a week just for health care benefits. Then I'd cut loose all but my top 20 weekly accounts and work applications around the gaps. Commercial lawn maintence bids are insanely lowish here. It is tough to maintain a $35/$40 price point on a average residential property.

Your spouse flat out needs to have a mindset and mentality and MUST be willing to sacrifice and actually understand the full implications of a family run business.
