I have been in business for 4 years. I am legit. I started mowing then expanded into landscaping and installing water fountains while still mowing. The first 3 years I was full time and I grew. Last Fall I was faced with the realization that me and my wife needed a more steady income, the economy hit me hard with no landscaping this year, I took a job with a local school district doing building maintenance. But my love is still operating my lawn business. Now for my question; I mainly do resi, but have a few comm accounts. I know my expences to the penny, and I would have to do 10 $40 ($400 per day), yards every day to replace my income and benifits at the school. That is 50 res accounts every week. I have no where that right now. I know it is doable, as I see many guys doing it. My company is a very lucrative part time job, but not a full time job. I am more happy cutting grass than my school job. When I was full time I was always busy. I liked it. But now while I have a steady income at the school, and my business is suffering. I think it is a catch 22. I go back and forth as to stay at the school and cut PT, or dive back in FT. Basically is that a reachable goal, having 50 accounts? And add in plowing and lawn maintenace items, I should be OK. Any comment and advice is welcome.
