well guys the day after posting that i was thinking about getting out of the biz things really took the turn for the best.

i was driving down the road on my little deere and trailer and the local competitor flagged me down. i thought o great he is mad at me for stealing an account or something. just the oppisite. we got to talking and at the end of august he is moving to Columbus and has twenty two accounts that he is looking at getting rid of. he said that if i was interested he would be getting rid of most to not all of them. he didnt really say if he wanted money for them or not. so we traded biz cards and i got on my way

what should i pay for 22 accounts. they are all very close to what i mow and 30-45 dollar yards.

ya i know it will be a big boost for me to get 22 more accounts. right now i have 3 of my 7 that i will keep if i get these. the rest i will drop January 1st. My stopping point is 25 and that will be pushing it. if i get the 25 lawn accounts my landscaping side will probably get put to the side.

just sub the landscaping out to someone else, make buddy buddy with someone else. Payback the favor. I think 25 would all i would like to have now also because of school.
