What could you improve?

Well everybody has something that they could be better at, what is it for you??



Personally for me, it is using the blower. For me and both of my employees, it seems it takes us to long to use the blower on large residential and commercial jobs.

Telling people no or giving those fun looking jobs the price tag they deserve.

1. Productivity - Having a 21" mower sucks when you could perform the job with a 36" cut.

2. Record Keeping - Always procrastinate it. We're having kind of a drought now, so I don't have to remember too much. I also don't go to the bank as often and making bills isn't as exciting.

3. Getting Started - With all the free time of summer, I put of lawns until I have the exact amountof daylight required to complete them. I'm better during school. I didn't even eat dinner until 8:30 and 9:00 most mowing days during school. I can't wait to drive. September 20th is when I take my test and I'm getting a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT this week. I wish my parents were rich and would pay for it, but then I'd probably play video games all day and get a Honda Civic.

4. Reducing Word Count of Posts - I have a problem with going into detail on various posts.
