    I have created NonStop Landscaping and Lawn Service. I will be running it by myself with the help of my wife for the books. I made my first bid on a 5 home deal for cutting and 'scaping but lost it due to "over pricing". I know this is the first of many I will loose, but sooner or later I will win some.

    I am very excited (and a little nervous) about owning my own business and showing everyone the quality of my work. I have big plans for myself and NSL and I am not affraid to hand out thousands of fliers and door hangers and business cards or whatever else it takes. I love this industry and will lead a good/happy life if I can make money at it.

    I also want to thank everyone on this board. I read the ?s and answers and learn alot from you guys.

    Thanks and wish me luck! :usflag:

    Good luck!

    p.s.: On your web site, consider optimizing your images (reducing their kilobytes) here:

    Because an 800kb image takes several seconds to load on my cablemodem, a dial-up customer it would take minutes and they won't wait that long.

    I hope they do. I'll take any jobs I can get. Plus, my tractor has headlights :cool2:

    Palmer'sLS - don't know where Brickman is from. I deal with Haynes Outdoors and Piedmont Equipment, they specialize in Deere, Scag, and Exmark. Awesome service and *gulp* financing.
