Yes, I know I'm not going to get all these accounts like that. I have some lined up for next year already. I've walked nieghborhood after niegboorhood going door to door. There seems to be one large service around here that really does a bad job and I am picking up alot of there accounts latly. It seems everytime I go around a nieghboorhood I get atleast one account and I always do the best I can so I get a couple more there. It takes a good month for every ten accounts picked up I would imagin but once I get one account everyone wants me to mow. Becuse I got a couple extra yards this fall and more people called me and I just had to say no becuse I still only had a push mower Exmark Viking comeing soon though. . . used but works.
