Good First Year!!

Hello, I am new to the group, my wife found this website, and We think it is very intresting.

I mowed lawns when I was younger (20) until I was 25, I did fairly well for myself. I got sick and couldnt mow because of sleep apena. I didnt do lawn care for 8 years and last year I started a test run to see how it would go, only mowed 3 lawns, 2 being little factories. Actaully I had my nephew mowing it for me. I had a scag from the previous lawn care I had.
This year my wife and I had 58 full time Lawn Accounts, and it seems like business is going pretty good.. main problem is cut throats, (people under bidding what the job should be. aka low ballers) next year we are going to try and double our work, we are already setting up accounts for this year coming up.
We started with a 92' chevy in april and now have a 2004, 2001 and 95 and the old plow truck the 92'. (3 plow trucks)
We have 2 trailors14 foot single, and a 16 double. , a 52' john deer walk behind, a scag tiger cub zero turn rider, scag 52 inch walk behind.. and walk behind 48' giant mow. 3 commercial chain saws. 2 echo weed whips, 2 echo blowers. We plan on starting another crew next year....
