my story

well here is what i did
last year i bought a dynamark rider, and had a old trailer that i used. i used a craftsman push mower along with the rider.
i raked in over 2000 that first year. i also got 4 more push mowers and a bolens trimmer(worst purchase)
this year so far, i have made about 500 dollars. i have made a trimmer rack for my ryobi trimmer. this year i have also got a craftsman edger. pretty good for a 8th grader?

Holy crap dave, i think your full of crap. i'm beginning to think that the stick up your butt is giving you a constant headache, all you doo is go from post to post and give people crap. The kid is full of it but i like him better than you. Man you are just a hateful person. What is your problem. Everywhere i go you have crap posted. You think your so much better than everyone else. just shutup.....

children

my problem is children thinking they are in business, only greif i give anybody is about being legit..... this industry is going down hill with lowballers and children who think they have a company.....

i admire and respect a kid with the get up and go to work.....
i live and work in a very small town, i have a kid mowing my neighbors yard for 10.00, its a 50 dollar yard.... kids with mowers in big citys arent competition ..... but in a small town its devistating to the market....

buy insurance, workers comp, license for state and county, and stop mowing for peanuts, and ill reconsider my position....

you dont like me , oh well i could give a rats behind, i have underware older then you....

im not here for you to like.... im here for the benifit of my business, and hopefully to help someone else along the way....

i have many post that are helpful and positive.....

whats wrong with a kid making ten bucks?

If he wants to undersell something and bust 50$ worth of his ass for ten bucks, let him.

I'll just go find another lawn.
