    Well, its back to the old times... I'm getting rid of my main foreman in the morning and will be back out on the mowing truck with 3 other guys. I've officially cleaned house this week, everyone is gone, I was at 8 employees last week, I'll be down to 3 plus myself starting tomorrow.

    One of the three new guys will become foreman in about 2-3 weeks once he learns the route and yards (already know which guy). After I get the new crew going, I will then focus on finding 3 more guys for my landscaping crew, until then, we will be doing 5 days worth of mowing in 3 days, and doing landscaping 2 days a week.

    Wish me luck, its gonna be hard but it needed to be done in order to gain control back.

    And you'll probably work less hours and make more money now. Good luck!

    Yeah, I really think its going to work out for the best. BTW... On Monday's and Tuesday's I have 2 part time helpers that are going to come in for as long as I need them. That will allow me to have 5 employees plus myself on my heavy landscaping days. Those days will be my money making days!
