    Lets hear what everyone wants to accomplish with their businesses this year! I'll begin:

    1.)Pay off my mowers
    2.)Get a v8 4 x 4 truck
    3)At least double my clientele

    I am going to stay very focused to achieve these goals too!

    Enough worthy employees to keep pace. That takes a lot of focus right there.

    I think the goals sound great and good luck! My personal goals include weeding out overly demanding low paying customers, adding more full service commercial accounts, and increasing gross sales 25%. :)

    Figure out this employee thing and maintain employees throughout the season to help me grow.

    Not really into buying much in the way of new equipment. Hope that I can get through the season without new major purchases. I spent my share of $$ last year.

    Make more $$ of course.

    Add more new services to expand and diversify.

    Personal goals--

    Eliminate more of my debt.

    Do some improvements on my house.

    Finish up my web design degree.

    Lose some weight.

    :D :D
