    I cant believe anyone who pours blood and sweat and money into a company and then frickin quits, it honestly sickens me, I know people will be hating me for writing this reply but honestly I am sick of it, why the hell do you start a business if you are going to just be a quitter, I dont care what the circumstances are whether it be weather, someone died, whatever it doesnt matter, everyone thinks hey you know what this sucks im not making money, im not getting clients, its to hot, my partner died or whatever---get over it ----do u honestly think that working for someone else will treat you better or hey even if you want to start another business, do you really think that it will be successful if you cant even make a lawn service (something that everyone needs) sucessful-----STICK WITH YOUR BUSINESS
