My main background is lawn/landscape and Christmas lights. It took about 3 years to build my first lawn care company into a full time gig for me and a helper for about 8 months out of the year. Litle or no advertising, just yellow pages. It took about 3 years to build the Christmas light division inside a later, larger multi purpose lawncare/landscape company ( about a million in sales) into something that kept 2 guys busy from Oct. 1-Jan. 31. I then left the company and took it with me. 4 years later and the Christmas Lights are an 6-8 employee deal with me doing mostly sales and management, and we keep hopping from mid september thru feb. 14 After doing some installs for Christmas customers last year and this year, and I did a dozen or so back in the day of the big company thing, I am ready to build this thing to support 2 employees. How long did it take you guys to reach that level?
