    What is the biggest challenge you are facing in your lawn company?

    More customers?

    More profit?

    Better employees?

    More time off?

    Better equipment?

    What's yours???

    All of the above? Ha. But on a serious note, more customers would be nice. Then that would justify the rest of the list.

    I agree more customers can solve all the other problems. Except possibly time off.

    If you have a boat load of new customers but no don't have the staff to handle them, then you're gonna be stuck working more.

    Yeah, I can always get more customers, the problem is in the profit.

    For those who answered MORE profitable customers, how are you currently estimating jobs? Hourly, square footage, other?
