I'm 19 in the biz

Iím 19 years old with 25 accounts. This is my second year in the biz. I was working at fast food restraint (it really sucked) making a couple hundred dollars a week. Now i have money coming in like never before. This is a great biz to get into at a young age.

Hey man! I'm in a similar situation as you are and was wondering if you could give me some tips? I have about 7 clients right now but am having an awfully hard time getting it up to about 25 where I want it to be. How did you get that many weekly customers? I've been passing out flyers with very little success.
