I wasn't to big of a fan from the sales guys from the store in utica or shelby w/e. I did pick up some equipment there but only because the warren store didn't have it. I have never felt uncomfortable in any way, and I know it isn't because of the thousands of dollars spent.

Here is my deal, when I was 4 I "helped" my dad with a neighbors lawn. I LOVED it so I asked my mom if could have a biz, she said "when you are 8 you can" (she figured I would find other interests over time) but as my 8th birthday approached I kept talking about cutting lawns, finally on my birthday I said ok I am 8 now I am ready, my mom said fine you can put filers on our street (again she figured I would not get work and find other interests) NOPE I got one lawn, then the next year I had 1 and a on call lawn. the following year I was up to 4, then in 2007 when I was 12 I purshcaed a 32 inch walk behind at the time I had 9 accounts, I also added entry leval commerical handheld equipment. By march 2009 I had 11 lawns and the 32 started to have issues so I added a 48, then a few months later I had all my handhelds stolen, so I had to buy all new stuff. Now I have pretty much everything I need to go fulltime other then a truck, but I need to finish school first. So technically I started 7 years ago but really I took off about 4 years ago
