Hello, Let me introduce myself because I am a new user to this forum. My name is Jason and I live in Texas. I have been mowing yards and earning money for about 6 years now and I am beginning to feel that my work is unfulfilled. Can anyone give me advice on what I would need to do to expand my business. I need information on the following aspects of the business: - What kind of equipment should I purchase and from where? - How do I go about hiring employees to work for me and what do I look for in an employee. - How much do I pay an employee. - What legal procedures need I take to become a certified business. - What is the best method of advertisement. This and any other information you see important to starting and operating a succesful lawn care business would be very beneficial to me. Thankyou for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Jason.
