Ever Worry About going out of Business

Do any of you ever worry about not being able to find work? At least where i live, you can't drive down the road without seeing 5 landscape/lawncare crews. I'm only 18, and have 25 clients. I want to do this a a career, but am always worried no one will like my work...or i'll price too high. I always get repeat business...only 1 person mad at me in 3 years. What do you think?

Thanks,
Dan

Only thing I worry about is not keeping UP with the work.

Sounds like you are off to a good start!

Stop worrying and do what you do best man.

Your track record sounds pretty good so far!
