Who is expecting good sales 2009?

Who is expecting good sales this year for lawn maintenance? I know I am! I am excited for this spring and I can not wait to get started with work on April 1, 2009. Last year was a good year for us for lawn maintenance and I expect to same this year. Is any one else feeling the same way or am I in denial with this economy. haha Some of you guys up north of CT of still have 3 feet of snow on the ground. Its even been a great winter for plowing in CT.

I like that you have 'hope'.... that's a good thing.... just 'hope' you aren't let down....

the economy is scaring me a little bit... just from bits and pieces of what I've been hearing around town...(down here)

makes me wonder if HD lawnmower sales are gonna skyrocket this year.... (homeowners trying to save a buck, by cutting it themselves...)

I think with the times being the way they are, I will be happy with a decent year. So far I've gotten some estimates to do and haven't advertised yet, so that's reassuring.

I am expecting good things. My Jan. volume was down but profit was up a little. So no complaints from me.

I'z thinkin' they're referring to major cities and corporations.

Most large "industry" cities and companies don't hang "help wanted" signs on the windows....
