Looks great man, I started out when I was 13 and I was the only one of my friends who loved the work. I would definitely upgrade the jeans for the professional look like a few other members have stated. Im 20 and this past year was the first year I was licensed and insured, and I am right there with you as far as the number of accounts, but im six years behind.

Don't let anyone treat you like you don't know what you are doing and if you ever have an issue with a new customer that doesn't want to pay you, bring your dad or a family member that understands the work you are doing to help explain to the client and try to solve any issues. I was ready to take a client to court over an unpaid sod job, but my bringing my dad to the site calmed down the client. Plus the fact that my dad is pretty big from working construction all of his life helped. Moral of the story, always cross your "t's" and cross your "i's" in the contract and get 30-50% of the money before the job for material cost.

Feel free to ask me any questions about the business, most of the members have been through it and can help you out.

-Michael

I Like Shindaiwa and Kawasaki more than Stihl, with the exception of handheld blowers. Think Scag and Snapper mowers are the best. Just My .02.
