    I did well last year part time. So, I'm going full time with my lawn care and landscaping business this year. Thanks to all who have replied to my posts here with my lawn and landscaping questions. Wish me luck.

    I had a full time job last year. But, got laid-off. My job was outsource to india. I have 7 snow plowing and 6 weekly mowing customers signed up for this year.

    This is my second full time year, it was a good year too. I'd say for sure that going full time is a good motivator for your biz, kinda puts your tail on the line if you know what I mean. The thought of punching a clock for the man again seems to keep me focused on my business reeeeal well! I'll make it work or die tryin is the way I figure.

    I have a part time job for the winter right know, but this will be the last winter I do this and it will be just lawn maintenance from now on. One thing is, make sure that you plan for the winter. I didn't and thats why I have a part time job now. Also concentrate on customer acquisition becuase that will keep the $$$ coming in.

    Thanks for the relies. I'm ready with agreements for lawn mowing and snow plowing. Monday I plan to place an ad in the local paper. Hopefully this will get me some more customers and estimates passed out. Will see.
