This is how I'm looking at it. To me, it's not all about finances anymore, having a big name, big equipment, and a lot of clientele. I hope none of you take me wrong, because even though I made the decision to go down, I'm not saying one is wrong and one is right. If you want my honest opinions, they both have their advantages, what works for one person, doesn't work for the next either. As far as finances, I feel like I've done my share and my part for enough years. My wife is netting plenty enough now, we don't have to worry about staying a float. My kids are grown and have moved on their way to college. Like I said, I think different strokes work for different folks. I just honestly feel like I would be happier and be able to enjoy life at this point by downsizing. As far as finances, my plan is to do exactly as you said. Keep the most profitable clients, pass on the rest to someone in need. We all have clients some on the low end, some that are on the extremely high end. You combine them, of course it takes employees and crews to keep them afloat. Everyone has to start somewhere and clients keep the business going each year. But when I can eliminate these (40%) of my lawns priced at $35.00 $40.00, and keep the most profitable residentials that have no issues paying for the high quality, that makes me able to eliminate the same % of employees that was needed to cover those cheaper lawns. Of course I'm going to keep the higher end and I feel like I'll have a lot less hanging over my shoulder day in and day out. I'll know exactly what I have ahead of me each day and I'll know that I got loyal high paying customers to help keep be a float. But like I said, at one time I was happier being a much larger company, but now I'm at the point where times have changed, enjoyments have changed, and my needs have changed. I know you guys understand where I'm coming from and I'm not trying to say running solo, running a two crew, or three crew is right or wrong in anyway. Their all right, but for me to be happy, I think that's what is right for me.
