I normally clear 4 easily and one month I almost hit 5( alot of rain!) That is JUST off of mowing though, that is not including side jobs...so I guess it depends!

Damn, I wish I was this motivated now much less at seventeen. Going to school, taking freshman classes and having this kind of commitment is really intense. No calling in because of a late night for this guy.

I do have to say juggling school with this business I have can be very stressfull sometimes, but I just keep telling myself it will all be worth it in the end

I agree with you 100%, I sometimes think that I should've waited until after H.S. to start a lawn biz, but a lot of stuff fell into my lap and I took it for what it was worth. The biz has affected my grades and my social life, but my friends are out there working jobs they hate and making barely $3K a year and I'm pulling in $16k in 7 months without working really hard, it's all worth it. And the satisfaction of running a biz is incredible. Keep it up and become the biggest and best LCO in Iowa!

That's what I'm doing also. But I do have some "toys" I really want to get. New 08 chevy or gmc truck, new computer, rare perfect condition toro 2 cycle from 04, recording studio equipment for my music, college, and the list goes on.
