Both college grads with one in grad school currently.
I started cutting grass at 12, at 18 I was making more money than my dad who was a radiologist. They thought I needed to go to college for a business degree. I did. I graduated and was offered jobs that made considerably less than what my annual salary was running my lawn business. My son is now 15, I let him start hanging out at our shop at age 2. He wanted to go snow plowing with me at about that age as well, I told him if he would quit using diapers he could go, he did. He has always wanted the truck we went in when he was young, im giving him the keys to it this February. My son has seven years experience running skidsteers, mower etc.... He has maintained a A average his entire scholastic career because I told him if he wants to work with us his grades have to stay up. He is also going to college when the time comes, but he is already so far ahead of other kids because I allowed him to touch a mower.
