This is what I actually did .I paid off mortgage,truck loan, bought 52inch stander new trailer; put the rest in stocks. I would do the same again except for the stocks.Lost too much money on that last year.Thanks Wall Street, at least the stander truck and trailer are making me money, house will too.

First off I, would not waste a dime in the stock market at this time.I would use trhe money to fix , what needs to be fixed. The take a percentage of it towards new equipment.

Then I would go out and look for bigger projects to bid on . My part-time help just got on full time and we,if not out mowing would be cold call selling and hard closing as many people we could find.I would be giving out some deals to my top customers only.

As we would be adding bigger projects to the mix, i would then allow the work to rise to a high enough point beofre adding any one else. But I would make sure that I had 2 more people lined up all ready to go.

As far as the equipment I would move a way from John Deere and head more towards, The next generation EXMARK MOWERS.These mowers are sweet.
