Yesterday while giving a bid on mowing, trimming , edging, etc. the potential customer told me that the last guys she had mowing her lawn did a nice job but she had to let them go because THIS season he wants the money up-front. ALL the money! For the entire season. He decided on how many times he would mow her lawn during the season and wanted the all the money up front for every mow. Is this for real? Does anyone really do this? I know lots of guys have contracts for the season, but does anyone ask for all the money for every mow for the entire season? I'm very confused.
