    I want to know where you want to be at in 5 years? Retired, sleeping & drinking all day while your crew is our mowing, in the office or still out there working in the field?

    lets see... i'll make this a short list....

    make enough money to cover my expenses of:
    a shop (big, gotta hold all my toys)
    a truck (f350 diesel)
    enclosed trailer (doubles as snowmobile trailer)
    arsenal of mowers (couple ztr's and WBs)
    2-3 guys working for me.

    Then i'd like to look into doing excavation work for contractors.

    I plan on opening up a lawn and landscaping shop. With about 200+ weekly accounts. I want to be the biggest in my area and everyone to know who i am.

    I haven't planned that far out yet. My plans for 2004 & 2005 are to have only top quality mow jobs no mow, & blow jobs, and to have my chemical apps up and running. As far as running a big biz. not really interested would rather get my profit up where I can live a comfortable life and do a little travel in the winter and fur trap. If I need help I'll use my son in law or my brother in law. :)
