    I always wanted to start a lawn care business, I was finally able to get the equipment needed to offer lawn care services. They may not be the best but they work for the most part.

    Here in my first season i have 21 recurring accounts, a list of contractor work for preservation and task companies that send me work in specified zip codes when i ask to fill in slow days. made connections with people that have year round work.

    Only the yellow blower has broken and needed replacement, but I played it smart and got a nice echo.
    not the best set up to start but im not in debt and come home everyday after a full day of working for my self.

    That's the spirit.... I love your last sentence because I am a new owner myself. I have been in the industry for a long time but I just started my own business this year and boy does it feel good to come home knowing that I am working so hard for MY OWN company!!!
