I think I've been in business for about 8-10 years also. But June 2012 was when I decided to go fulltime. Oh boy, that's the best thing I've ever did. I never looked back at all. So, in June 2012 was when I got into it real heavy. So now the sky is my limit.

Man it's amazing the turn around I'd got so far. Some people say it's only a certain percentage off of so many postcard you put out. So far I put out 1100 postcards and I have 13 new customers from that. So in a couple of weeks I'll put out the same amount and hopefully I get a lot more calls. I've made my money back already and then some. Go ahead and try it you might get some good responds from it.

Doesnt sound like a lot but out of 1100 homes but you picked up 13 of them. That's awesome. That's like 1 out of evey 84 homes.

No it doesn't sound like a lot. But my goal is 20 plus more accounts. Plus if you look at the money part of it. It's a lot more money over a season for 13 new accounts. But that's 13 new accounts before grass season really start really though, there's more accounts to come!!!
