Most every one here is an owner and with that owners work harder faster and longer than so called normal people could possibly comprehend. Get past your own abilities and how many large guys do you know who do not do this trade that could fill in at your production levels? Just because you have hardened your self through years of hard labor and are the exception to the rule doesn't mean everyone else is. And that is what I see when I am interviewing an potential employee and that is what a client sees when he is getting a bid from a potential landscaper. I remember years ago when I worked for my old employer he hired a high-school football player guy was huge and intensely strong we were doing a clean up in a marsh on the Housatonic River. A major storm had washed all kinds of junk into these rich snobs back yard including a telephone poll. It was about a 20 foot section and this guy picked it up solo and walked it to the river on his shoulder. This is a guy that did all those practices for foot ball he didn't last 4 hours the rest of us had to cover for him working a full 10 hours each. Was he stronger then us yes he was could he out work us not even close. Iv been making men cry and quit and rethink their lives for 23 years. I wasn't trying to pick a fight with the larger landscaping owners here was just giving my observations over well over 100 employees in my time.
