    I started mowing for a friends uncle in high school. Stayed with him for 4 years and now have been out on my own for 2. I was just wondering how some of you started out in the business

    work for lco's since high school(16 years now). this year I am going to start part time. Reason, the four lco's that I have worked for have each said, "there's not that much money to make in this business, it's mainly pride" I always think about that when I have worked on there personal million dollar homes!

    I think that will be changing in the near future considering the economic situation !!
