    Iam a solo operator with around 30 accounts...I have the oppurtunity to take 50 more accounts. I know I will have to hire help and I already have the equipment. Is that growing to fast or is it just great?

    i would think you could handle 80 accounts solo.

    80 accounts solo can be done. Having help will only mean that you won't be burned out all the time. With help I can get about 20-25 yards done in 8 hours. By myself I get about 13-15.

    I am new to the biz and would love to know how to pick up more accounts quickly. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    80 accounts will kill a solo where I'm at. 1 acre lots are the norm, and most have a bunch of trimming.

    I dont see why if you can manage 30, you cant manage 50 more. Once you get up to more than a few accounts it just becomes the same thing to manage. I say go for it, and good luck! Depending on lot size you might want to find some help or you'll be working a lot :p
