Just Starting out-SOLO

I am new to this and just started out. I wanted to introduce myself and let you all see what I have been doing the past 6 weeks. I have purchased a new F150 on 8-13-10 and in 6 weeks, decided to go solo, purchased 2010 Toro Z500 60", 7 x 12 ft trailer dual with brakes, Echo equipment and Boss 7.5 ft plow. It is now time to go to work. The leaves are getting ready to fall here in northeast Ohio and I have 8 clients as of this morning. And away we go.......

Best of luck to you. You made great choices on all your equipment. I respect you a lot for starting with quality equipment instead of working with junk like a scrub. Best of luck to you!

Congratulations, I wish you the best of luck.I Started out 3 years ago, and I am so happy I did.Keep your head up and continue pushing.You will have down days,but do not let it stop you motivation and why you decide to get into the business.One thing I do recomend is that you become licence and insured if you are not,and put logo on you truck.Potential customers like that and you will grow you business faster that way.
Again,wish you the best of luck and never look back

Now let the work begin! A couple of things work hard but not too hard, to hurt yourself. When the money comes in and there is extra, put it away under your pillow. Do things legit and make the best of what you have.
