When is it time to stop growing for a while? I have been getting a lot of new customers just this week alone I got about 25-30 more. I now have around a 100 + customers and its becoming a headache everybody wants projects done now. I am booked for landscaping until June and mowing is packed, treatments are going to be hard to fit in and I am behind scheduled. Its hard to know who's lawn to skip and still try to keep them happy. (sorry splicer none are around you) All of my customers are very happy with my work and quality but I'm afraid if I keep growing that it won't continue. Some resd customers alone are in the 5 digits dollar wise and I don't won't to turn any of those jobs away! I never advertise other then my shirts and truck signs its all by word of mouth. I started work at 7 am and worked until 9:30 pm tonight, my 1 employee had 57hrs the other had 31hrs this week and I put in around 70hrs. I think I need to hire 1 or 2 more employees and start a third crew to keep up, I think by the end of the year I could easily have 200 customers which sounds scary but fun to me. Every day I get home totally worn out I have missed most meals this week and am tired of answering the phone every 10 mins all day from new people (not complaining) I am thinking that I might have already hit the point of not being on a crew anymore and playing strictly business man. I have been training my brother how to run everything on the job and he knows all of my customers also, so I think it may be time to cut his ropes and let him lose. So the question is keep growing or lose great high paying jobs and declare myself full? I am now also getting calls from HOAs wanting bids from me for next year and this year. I had a 100% renewal rate again this year and have only 1 customer that ever has a complaint and I may get rid of them.
