Just curious how many accounts did you have your first year.
5. One doesn't count though, It was my own yard and I didn't even use my business equipment, and nor do I today. Why? I don't know...it's just something iv'e always done.
thanks for the info. were these residential or commercial?
1st year i was part-time 7 clients, 2nd year went full time by mid may, went to about 65 clients, 90% residential
all residential with a proline, a ryobi trimmer, and a homelite blower... check out the site and see where i am now.
It's been so long, I can hardly remember...I think maybe 8 or 9.
15 here, All Residential. Not to big on Commercial accounts.
We are growing every year...
oops my bad did not see the link to your home page
At the end of year one I had 47 accounts.
Started out last year in May. Had an average of 7 accounts/week. I cut for a no-name real estate company that deals with foreclosures. Lucky and saw a payment like clockwork every Tuesday.
Spoke with them a few weeks ago and have first pick of all properties this year. Figuring a minimum of 15/week. Also have 3 residential and 1 commercial as of this week. Still a couple weeks away from dropping flyers. All this part-time. Looking for F/T and cutting the corp. safety line in '04 or '05.
Best advice ..... be prompt, fair and professional.
