I inquired about those last year. I believe they are being cut for like $8/lot. Something crazy like that.

If there just flat open lots with little or no trimming. I could see a bigger company doing it to keep there guys busy.

You still doing the bush hogging at the railroad and the overgrown lots for the city or whoever it was?

Railroad put all work on hold for all contractors due to budget issues. The overgrown lot stuff is seasonal. But I plan to focus on building a really good mowing route in our new area.

Since you're in the advice taking mood, you may consider this: change your business name. Instead of "one crazy..." change it to kajun landscaping or whatever your new Web address is. Here's why. 1) I would never hire someone who claims to be crazy, either in jest or slightly seriously. It's in poor taste and reduces your marketability. 2) one implies it's just you, one guy. Best thing you can do for your growth is look bigger than. You are until you are big.

Every thread I have you always come in telling me to change my company name. Not going to happen.

I highly doubt the name deters people from calling. I've done work for city, parish & state agencies. I get tons of compliments on the name. My favorite is " I see your trucks all over ". Truth is one truck! I will have two lettered trucks this year.

The reason my company isn't larger than it is now is due to one reason.
I lost focus!

I wouldn't say you lost focus...I would just say that your focus kept changing. There's nothing to be ashamed of.
In fact, be proud of your accomplishments. You quit a steady government job and ventures out on your own. You were a contractor. The only difference now is you're switching from a contractor run operated business to a self sustaining business

Found out today the railroad will be renewing our bushhogging/spraying contract for 2014 & 15.

Submitted a bid for a very nice HOA. Over 11acres of turf to be cut weekly.
