I applaud you on being honest and admitting your stepdad helps you out. So many kids on here think that any critique means we think they can't work or are not responsible etc. It has nothing to do with a 14 year old's work ethic - the bottom line is that they cannot drive, get liscensed, get insured, finance equipment etc. There are just too many barriers for a teenager to do it without help - regardless of how hard or good they work. Having said that, it really looks like you are motivated, organized, and pretty darn professional! I have no doubts that when you do turn 18 and many of the barriers are removed you will hit the ground running and your business will thrive. I just don't understand why you want to deal with all the hedaches of this business at such a young age. Its nothing against you, and I am not saying you can't do it, I just wonder why? There are so many more fun things for a 14 year old to do. Best of luck and stay safe!

Lucklay my step dad has good credit and backs the company because it just established credit like 3 months ago the step dad legally owns the company till I'm 18 so we can be all legal I do carry 3 mill or liability essentlay I'm just a laboror you could say even tho it's my company I won't own it legally till I'm 18 step dad drives me and hopefully when I pick up about 10more yards ill be able to hire a part time employee so I can work when step dads at work. and honestly I'd rather be doing this at 14 making a future for myself rather then drinking smoking partying or other stupid stuff my friends do lol but I only mow Thursday and Friday after my step dad gets home at 4 and all sat so I do stil have time to hangout with my friends
