Understandable on the mower, just stay on top of the maintenance because it won't give you the life a commercial will.
Just look presentable and professional. But you NEED that face to face. Have plenty of business cards, be prepared for a gazillion "no's" until you get that "yes". Make up some flyers, go door to door in a few block radius. (You want nice tight routes). Do homes, get practice, move up.

Thank you. At least he listens!
Too many people jumping on here lately that already have their own agenda, regardless of what they ask and what advice their given.
Thanks for the confirmation, Lawnsite has been a godsend to me. Just sitting here reading all the posts from all the struggles and triumphs.

GOOD LUCK C3!!!!

He was one of the people I was referring to. Unsubscribed to that thread a long time ago, but did see your comments.
