I am in business with a partner. We are currently servicing on average about 21 lawns a week. We are both 16, and i do all the work when it comes to marketing/bookwork/financial. I know that if i take over the business solo i can take it to the next step it needs to be. We are entering the winter season up here in wisconsin and by next mowing season i would like to be a solo operator. I think i could convince him to just let me take over the business for nothing but im not sure. Any suggestions? One idea would for me to take it over. But for the job he helps me with he gets 50% of gross for that job. Any ideas please? Also by next summer i will be licensed and insured. P.S. Do you think i should change the name of my business "S & M Lawn Care" for when im solo if the "M" is from his last name? Or should i leave it Thanks!
