My goal is in 90 days to have 50 accounts.
zippy-phil, thanks for the feedback, yes i understand that i will have to keep records, for now i do that just for myself, i write the day i did someones yard and the cash received. what part of the states do you live in? I was hoping to start off similar to that but i dont want to get cited for doing business with no license, i dont know how they expect people to buy a license to start a biz with no customers first or start up cash in this economy. But maybe i could get away with a little advertising, i just want to blast my name all over the trailer but want to be licensed first just in case.
5-6 regulars so far for just starting out, that is good, congrats and goodluck!
