Guys I APPRECIATE the comments. Thanks The Cutting Edge
Wow verry impressive and insperational. Would you mind sharing some info on what is your best money makers.Do you service mostly commercial properties or residentials or what would you say the ratio is.This is my first year in the buisness and I have only about 23 residential houses I cut for.The biggest money maker I had so far was a job where I removed about 15 shrubbs and 4 small trees for $850.I think my mowing brings in around $500 a week.Currently I still work in a verry shaky auto industry but dont see a future there and dont really want a future there.The auto industry/assembly line work is verry hard on your body.
Landscaping is hard work also but I enjoy being outdoors and running my own show.I hope I can do as well as you have.Thanks for any info.

I hardly believe that for the simple fact I don't do bidding outside my customers, so I know you haven't taken any jobs from me or my guys!!! Just for kicks do you mind sharing the property location...Well it really dont matter I know its not from me..

That "table 'o cash" picture is pretty low-rent, my friend. We all have cash and we know what it looks like. Why would you post a picture of that?? It's not impressive, though it's obvious that's what you were going for.

VERY nice rig...but... WHY do you have all that money in cash? I see no reason to have more then about $1000 cash at any given time. What if your house burns down? You'd be out like $15k. If the bank burnt down though, the FDIC would give you your money.

Well I would have to say that are biggest money makers Landscaping design and installs and are retaining walls.. Most of are customers are high end residential 3-5 million dollar homes, we have a couple of commercail accounts like appartment complexes but residentail is were it is at for us. I like to know my customers on a first name basis and let them know that I am on call 24 hours a day if they need me, they really like that. Alot of my customers invite me to parties that the host thats how close we are. Get good with your customer relation skills and your in there... Just stick in there and you will do fine, it looks as you are already with 23 customers for your first year.. Just get rid of the PITA'S there not worth you time or effort..

I keep my money in a fire proof safe with my guns so I really have no worries. I DON'T WANT ANYONE TO GET THE WRONG IMPRESSION, I am not trying to flaunt my money I did that for inspiration for the newbies.. I want them to see that this is a profitable business. Plus I am proud of myself and crew for what we have achieved... Lets be realistic 15 stacks is not alot of money its here one day gone another. So guys that are putting me down for this "IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT THAN DON'T LOOK" I did this for inspiration for the new guys theres nothing wrong with that...Thats the bottom line ...........
