    Thanks wbw, I'll do my absolute best. I have to get to a lot of work starting this week (It's sunday here).

    Time to get on the grind! If I do become successful with this, I will come back and share the EXACT same steps I did to launch a company from scratch to seven figures in this industry. Then you can emulate it and maybe even one up it.

    Until then, I'm going to get to work. As usual..

    I don't see anywhere, where he is telling people they are wrong. And Sydney, get a picture thread going!

    And like very few, I am not concerned with equipment, I care the costs of operating & its efficiency. Too many in this industry are all about "this skid steer, this truck or this mower & particular bagger system" people like that, will be stuck in the field for life.

    Boston is a fun city. Im 45 minutes north and spend some time there when I have it.

    LOL you wont catch me sucking up, but I will give you my honest opinion on your hangers. Plus I have never seen 300,000. I buy lots of 5000 during certain times of the season.

    If you haven't ever seen 300,000 then that is good. I will show you a picture once I go get them this week. Being different is the goal. Theres a reason the top 1% own most of the wealth in our countries, because they do things different. (I would kill to have your country's tax system over mine.)

    I also agree that equipment opinion. I'm in business to reduce overhead and increase profits all while keeping good quality control for our customers. Oh, can't forget my shareholders too ;).

    Sydney have you ever seen 300k? It will come probably come on 5 skids. We do 25k EDDM which are larger and it takes up a skid. Door hangers will be smaller. Good luck...
