At least your "garage" is organized.

The bigger your garage, the more space you have to lose stuff.

Looks good. How much growth have you had from 1st to 2nd year? Full or part time??

I'm starting next year part time. Just going through all of the startup stuff now. How do you like echo, are you happy with everything? I'm still trying to decide what brand to go with and. I would like to stay with a single brand if possible.

I'm grew a lot this year. I was up too 30 lawn accounts this year. I lost + gained a few on the way. Next year i would like to have 50+ full maintenance accounts. My goal is to get a newer 2500 or 3500 truck in spring. I am only 21, so still building my credit. I also know that a lot of business fail when they have a lot of loans so i'm glad that i paid for everything i own with cash except for my brand new Gravely 260 i bought in spring. I only have $2 grand left on the loan. So i should have that paid off in spring. Thanks for looking guys!

I really like the Echo products. I have never had any issues with them. Keeping up on the Maintenance goes a long way...
