just wanted to start a thread to see how long everyone has been in business, what your best investment was, worst investment. how many accounts you have, employess and if you plan on getting any bigger or not.. you don't have to disclose how much you make unless it floats your boat... i'll start. I"ve been in business for 3 years now me and my buddy are partners. we have 35 residential and 1 commercial. our best investment is a sulky.(sure makes the day go by smoother). worst is an underpowered chipper (5hp). we currently don't have any employees. got some help on the commercial. we are planning on expanding up to 100 accounts within the next 2 years. also we want to get into buying houses and remodeling then resale. thanks for reading all of this and i appreciate all responses.
