I don't understand legal jargon I want to clear up also I refer to the lady as ex- wife but she isn't as we had no paper stating it.
The money is solely for lifestyle of the child
The accepting the crews is the moms greed.
And I just hope it bites her in the tail.

My point with all of the post was the downsize update not to worry about my venting of it.

I can admit it screws with my company but we have been planning for the day for a year almost.

I glad she wants the company shares over cash

You missed the big question, did she get the Franklin crew?

JRs. I am unsure what posting in bold means I see it and it makes perfect sense good man. Seeing as with the bank accounts she gets out of this deal is the bank a counts for the crews I would say if she can manage money she will be fine. As long as the crews keep mowing for their jobs then those bank a counts keep adding money and she stays happy.
Maybe I am missing your point but at 5'3" and 350 lbs I don't see the ex lady going out to mow.
(The judge has stipulation to this all as my child is her .....
Family). Small town stuff. When my child is 18 it because hers. I would like to thank the mom has enough sense to keep it up. She worked I. The office for years so it's not a stretch to see her do it fine.
I just hope the guys don't up and quit her over everything.

Lol te Franklin crew is No only because my father is in control of it . I sold it to him in January for $1.00 under advisement of my lawyer.

We never expected this deal to happen .
I was content with the payments and they asked .
I don't know how to explain it all in seriousness .
If she is smart about it she would take what she has and work out a line of credit and continue adding crews .
That IS what I am doing .
I don't know when I will get the paperwork of the deal( fine print stuff)

Sorry for the hard reading. I posted facts and then swirled it around in confusion while venting over it all.

I made statements that were unclear about my locations

I get to keep my personal crews here
The three crews I get out of the deal is
My Franklin location
My Memphis location
My Cookville location
Of the original 24 locations

The crews that got excluded from the deal
Was a location in Lexington/ linden
A location in phinox Arizona
And a location in new York I am waiting on accusation from my current wife's family.
Of all the locations I have in Tennessee I will still cover over 20 counties in all.
I am unsure if I will have to move around some trucks to fill certian needs in these areas to better service them.

If any of you have read my earlier stuff you may be aware we were for the most part a mow and go once the market crashed. We decided to go to enclosed trailers and offer full service from each crew.
Explanation:

We knew the day would come that we would take a loss financially, We invested in these contacts to enable us the needed items to carry on and the added comfort of 1 job for 1 crew eliminated the need for 2 or 3 trucks for the added services.and it allows us to recover some of the lost revenue .
If everything works out as planned we will be able to maintain the locations we have with a higher return
And by adding 2 or 3 mowers per truck it should allow us to grow to a great size while remaining concentrated.

I also am planning some in bed trucks to spread back out as fast as possible with a goal of fully recovered by 2020( previously posted as the year that everything was replaced)
