5. One doesn't count though, It was my own yard and I didn't even use my business equipment, and nor do I today. Why? I don't know...it's just something iv'e always done.

Started out last year in May. Had an average of 7 accounts/week. I cut for a no-name real estate company that deals with foreclosures. Lucky and saw a payment like clockwork every Tuesday.
Spoke with them a few weeks ago and have first pick of all properties this year. Figuring a minimum of 15/week. Also have 3 residential and 1 commercial as of this week. Still a couple weeks away from dropping flyers. All this part-time. Looking for F/T and cutting the corp. safety line in '04 or '05.
Best advice ..... be prompt, fair and professional.
