Not entirely true. Some will take you at 15 or up. Just depends on the company. Lost of my friend who are 15 or 16 work for lawn care companies.

I think the best advice 007 gave was to take a couple of steps back form the door. You don't want them to feel threatened and that way they can see you from a window before they even come to the door. I always do that.
