    Does your ego feel better? 15k is a lot of cash to a lot of people including me. Really

    All Depends on where you are in your business, for most folks 15K IS a lot of money, for some 15K won't even make the payroll for a week.

    15k is quite a chunk of change no matter how far along your business is.........

    150 accounts and its only 10k a month. That Sounds low to me.

    I posted the rough numbers from the previous year just to get some input on his asking price. Its a done deal now, I bought it, been working it since June. After paying expenses the company is turning a nice profit so cash flow isnt an issue. Even though there is 150 accounts this region had been suffering through a harsh drought since 2011. So some of those accounts werent being mowed but once a month if they werent running irrigation. Anyways, thanks for the input.
