You registered a business in your name, at the age of 16. Right....
I'm also fairly certain you cant hold an insurance policy of your own until you're 18.

I started myself last season. Last year i grossed about $8,000 between mowing and landscape jobs. I have already doubled the amount of weekly clients from last year and i am hoping to pick up a few more. And it looks like i will have a total yard renovation coming in march or april which alone will be a few grand.

The year after I want to pick up a new half ton to run my mowing and such and maybe a one ton dump for installs.. Sounds a bit ambitious but I know I can make it happen...

How do you manage doing all this if you go to school? if you do that much work do you have full time employees

You do it need more than ever for residential..what if you break a window in the house or car? What if you seriously damage a car with a rock? A lot of us smaller companies couldn't take that kind of hit.
