questioning starting agin

Hey guys been long time since been here so long I had to re register. Anyway kicking around the thought of starting mowing agin but keeping it small this time 50-60 yards and just doing it myself this time around I know its late in the year but I know I can get the 50-60 yards with no problem beginning of the year. I will have no overhead equipment cost as I work on them so I always have somthing to use till it sells instead of sitting there. I know fl compitition is stiff but how are you guys doing the people who choose to stay small not looking for senders saying you make 500k a year lol I won't believe you I guess just looking to be talked into it agin Haha aghhh

I got back in to the maintenance side again after a required 3 year absence. I work solo and have not had any trouble having more clients than I need. THe headaches are less and the $ in pocket seems better... the other side of that sword is if you don't work, it doesn't get done.

Before you take the plunge again, make sure you have at least 18 months of savings in place to cover all of your day to day expenses,excluding your lawn maintenance venture. If you have that cushion in place and your in good health, grow slow and keep your customers under control. All the best.
